Well let me start off explaining how I got engaged and maybe that can also help you girls see clearly where I come from or correct me if I am exaggerating.
My engagement wasn't like I expected at all; I had been sick for a couple of months and when summer came I decided to getaway a couple of months to my dads house in Florida. After a month my boyfriend decided to join me for a couple of weeks + we planned a weekend in Miami.
So we had an agreement that we would exchange gifts when he arrived (as a happy to see you again). I gave him a collage of our pics and a romantic letter and also bought him 2 t-shirts and I asked him where my gift was? He said he forgot so I was a bit disappointed, we started arguing about it and I was trying to read a book at the time and all of a sudden he gives me out of nowhere a little wrapped box.
I thought it was a normal gift (looked nothing like a ring box) and when I opened it I thought it was a joke, he didn't say anything, he didn't kneel...he just looked at me and said if I wanted to be with him. I thought this was a practical joke, but it wasn't it was the real deal. So after I finally got through my thick skull that I was engaged I was in SHOCK. Then I realized I was wearing my pj's, no make up and my hair looked like crap!
The moment we get engaged my bf (now fiancé) looks at me and says "well its your fault it didn't go down romantically". I was like what?! I didn't force you to propose if you couldn't wait for a better moment it is not my problem! So to make matters worse my mother gave me a hard time about my engagement and ended up ruining the rest of the day.
We've been together for 5 1/2 years. I am 25 and he is 27. Can someone tell me if I am exaggerating of losing the excitement of my engagement? I tried to arrange engagement pics but he shot me down, I tried to take some pics at home with our cam and he also shot me down...
Thanks girls for sharing your knowledge and opinion with me
