My fiance and I have been doing things backwards from the start. We have been together since high school so getting married for us was just a matter of time. Anyway, his dad got sick, so we decided to get the ball rolling. He insisted on not proposing until he had "the ring I deserved."
Throughout our relationship he would tease me about how his proposal was going to be epic. So after the wedding planning began I started dreaming of these horrible proposals! Most of them consisted in him just doing it at the spur of the moment because he didn't want to wait anymore and there was nothing special to it, or the ring would be hideous, etc. I would tell him about these dreams and he just laughed because he said that I had no idea how great the moment was truly going to be.
Well, the other night (a Tuesday) we get home from my mothers and are just about ready to go to bed and I turn around and he's on one knee. He just did it. I feel horrible, but I was so disappointed! Then he told me all about this amazing elaborate plan he had worked out for the weekend, involving all our friends and my mom, but he said he just couldn't wait anymore!!! Just like my dreams!!!
I was so confused because he knew I had those dreams and he has been building this moment up for years, and he ended up just doing it.
I feel horrible that this is even a big deal to me, and now he feels bad too. What went wrong?
