- Wedding: May 2014
I’m a little frustrated, so I aplogize in advance if I come off as a little snotty… Haha. Anyway… A little background: I’ve been dating my SO for about 8 months, been good friends with him for about three years. We’ve been discussing marriage since very early on in our relationship.
So, I decided to take my boyfriend on a suprise date last night. No special occasion, he’s just been really stressed lately and I thought it’d be nice to do something cute for him. I picked up his favorite candy, which I think is disgusting (Kazoozles) and his favorite soda. He came over to my house where I promptly blindfolded him, tossed the goodies in the backseat of my car and drove him the half hour to the park where we had our first kiss.
When we got to the park, I asked him if he knew where we were and took off the blindfold. We had our cute moment where we kissed and hugged over the adorableness of the situation, you know, all that.
We sat on a bench and enjoyed the goodies and chatted and cuddled. I asked him, “Well, did you like your suprise?” To which he responded “Yes, and I have a suprise for you too.”
He held me close and said “We’ve been dating for quite some time now. I love you very much. And I know you want to be with me for the rest of forever…”
I knew he wasn’t going to propose at this moment. It was set up perfectly, it was cute, and I know we both want that, but I know my guy well enough to know when he’s joking around. So that whole time I was just nodding and smiling and rolling my eyes, giving him kisses.
Until he said, “So…” and started to shift down from the bench. As if going down onto one knee.
For some reason, I suddenly seriously thought I was about to be proposed to. My heart sped up to about a thousand BPM. I gasped, my hands went to my mouth, the whole shebang.
And then he straightened back up, winked and said softly “Just kidding.”
I started crying. He laughed and hugged me tight. Asked “Are those happy tears or sad tears?” I responded “Shocked tears” and he told me he was “just testing the waters.”
I know he didn’t mean to be a jerk, but I was furious. We ended up walking around the park, we went back to my place, he made me dinner. Hell, we even looked at men’s wedding bands today and compared metals.
I’m not mad anymore really, I just wanted to get this out there into the open. I guess I’m wondering if anyone else is going through as agonizing of a time as I am right now. Haha.
