Not Engaged Yet

Men

I had to tell my BF to just stop this morning! Last week he tells me he can't wait to marry me after we watched The Notebook. Friday before he left for the weekend he tells me he can't wait to put a ring on my finger. This morning he asks if we're going to my parents' house any time soon and then before we leave he asks again, saying he needs to talk to my dad.

So I told him he really needs to stop saying stuff like that because it drives me bonkers and makes me think the proposal is coming next week! I don't think he gets it, lol.

Also, I went shopping yesterday and was looking at curtains. There was a couple looking at curtains a few feet away and the woman kept saying, "What about this?" and "Do you think this would work?" and was basically talking to herself because the guy looked like a 5 year old bored out of his mind and he kept saying, "Yep" and "uh huh" and "sure" in such a bored voice that I couldn't help but look to see them and laugh ... and he caught me laughing at him of course, lol. But I did notice he got a little more proactive in the shopping after that, lol. He reminded me of my BF when I start rambling about stuff, lol.

    That's too funny that the guy in the store noticed you laughing. We all do it sometimes though!

    I completely agree that boys need to learn how to keep secrets better. My guy told me that a proposal was coming sooner than I think this past weekend. I jokingly reminded him that he bought the ring over 6 months ago, so I wasn't holding my breath...he'd do it in his own time. BUT in my head i'm thinking "SERIOUSLY?!?!" just do it already or keep your mouth shut. I don't want to constantly be thinking about this.

    People watching is one of my favorite past times. Especially living in such a touristy area, it can be pretty amusing.

    I'm sorry your BF doesn't get it. Sounds like your BF and Irish's BF should hang out and drive each other BSC. :-)

    Haha, that'd be great. They can go off and tell each other what they're up to and leave us in the dark.

    And yeah, people watching can be very entertaining. It kinda makes me wonder what other people have caught me doing, lol.

    My FI was like that the whole summer.  He kept telling me that it would happen sooner than I thought and he was thinking about it all the time.  Then one week all he could do was talk about getting married and I sent him here so he could deal with his BSC.  He ended up proposing that weekend.  I think that this is their way of getting rid of the BSC, because boys aren't very good at keeping secrets! 

    Have him check out The Plunge, it's like The Knot but for guys.

    Lol yeah, I've told him before that he is horrible with secrets. Any time he has ever tried to surprise me with something, he's either had to tell me to leave (so he can get ready) or I have to wait for something, or he tells me he has a surprise for me, lol, so I don't expect to be completely surprised with an engagement when it happens. I think I'll be given enough hints by then, lol. I think I might send him that link and see what he says, lol. He's not one to spend much time on the computer though, so I don't know how into it he'll get, but I do know he's been nervous about asking my dad, and I saw a link on that site that had something to do with that so we'll see. He may be interested! Thanks!! : )

    P.S. Today he has to go to the chiropractor. Instead of just leaving it at that he says, "And then I have to make one more stop and then I'll be home." He says this with a smile on his face so I know he's up to something because he never says things as vaguely as that. I think he just likes messing with me or something, lol.

    I'm glad I'm not the only people watcher.  It's always amusing.  I would be so annoyed if my BF kept hinting at that stuff.  I would try to ignore it but some men don't seem to get it....

    Yeah, he doesn't always get the hints that I leave, so I have to be very blunt with him and just let him know that he needs to stop, lol. We talked about it again and he said he just does it because he's nervous about asking my dad and feels bad about lying to me even if it is for a surprise FOR me, lol. I told him that he doesn't need to lie, but he also doesn't have to go out of his way to let me know that he's making an extra stop (being vague) after he is done with the chiropractor. Either way, he finally said that I shall hear no more! : )

    I wish my boyfriend would act like that. He's mentioned marriage in the active form only once and that was over a year ago (saying if we get a house we can start planning a wedding) that didn't happen and now I'm banging my head against the wall wishing he'd get his act together and propose.
