Long time lurker, first time poster, and all that.
Background: Have been dating my boyfriend for around a year and a half. Both of us agreed when we started dating (we were friends first) that we weren’t looking for something casual, and that if we dated, it would be “playing for keeps.” We’ve been talking about marriage for a while, and he asked my parents for their blessing in June (something I had requested that he do).
Fast forward to August: After looking around, we picked a jewelry store a couple of weeks ago, and went in to look at loose diamonds today. After choosing one (!), I asked how long it would take to make, and the jeweler replied it would be something around ten days (it’s a really simple setting). I told him that was fine, and that I was going to be leaving later this week to travel for an extended period, so he didn’t need to rush on the production as we could get it once I got back in a few weeks. He then asked the details of when I was leaving, and said, “Well, would you like it for your trip? I can talk to the goldsmith and have it done before you leave.”
Cue my mouth dropping open, and then an excited glance at my boyfriend.
AND SO I’M GETTING IT THIS WEEK!
I had a huge grin on my face the entire way home.
