I am consumed by a big mystery at the moment – I’m wondering whether my boyfriend is finally going to propose. We have been together for seven years already and we bought an apartment together last year so I really feel like the commitment is there, but still there is no ring on my finger.
I have to say it is getting a bit depressing watching the bridesmaids dresses accumulate in my closet as one by one my girlfriends waltz down the aisle with the man of their dreams. The latest one to tie the knot had only known the groom for a year, so I admit wholeheartedly to feeling a heavy sense of “no fair” as I preceded her down the aisle on her big day.
I know, I know, they say we can’t push men into marriage, but dropping a few hints is OK, right? Well, I think it is anyway, which is why I have begun to stare wistfully at my naked left hand ring finger sighing loudly as I do so, especially when my boyfriend asks me what it is I want for Christmas.
I have also begun to “accidentally” forget to log off from the Internet after browsing through the selection of Tacori engagement rings to find my favourite.
We will be spending the holidays with my parents and then heading up to the mountains for New Year, I can’t help hoping that one of these locations will provide me with the long awaited proposal. Although, I am also beginning to worry that I am over-thinking the whole thing, because I have tried so many times to practice how I would answer the big question that I am worried that when the moment finally arrives I’ll just spout a whole load of nonsense! Might make myself some crib notes: one word – yes!
