Okay, so last night SO and I go to a restaurant to celebrate our 6 year anniversary...Everything is great, restaurant is empty (Monday night) so we have the whole place to ourselves...We decide what we are going to have appetizers, soup, main course...waitress takes the order and SO asks where the bathrooms are (we've never been to this place before)...Takes a little longer than I would've thought, but no big deal....Comes back to the table and sits down we talk a bit more before the appetizer comes out...appetizer is a "raw bar" type dish arranged in a large rounded bowl...It comes out and in the center is an engagement ring...To say that I'm stunned would be the understatement of the year...As I could barely breathe, I hear him asking me to marry him and my response tumbles out way too fast (no, no, no).
He clarifies that he doesn't mean marry him anytime soon (i.e. the last we've spoken about this, it is fairly clear that another 4 years is about the time parameter we're in agreement about), but, nonetheless wants me to answer yes...kind of weird b/c now waitress comes back with a camera (hears me saying no, isn't sure what to do), SO gives her his phone and some pictures are taken...Champagne comes, the meals, and then they give us a dessert on the house....All the while I feel awful about my reaction...I did immediately put on the ring though...
Okay, so for those that know of my struggles...one of them is SOs financial situation...he is heavily burdened with paying CS/alimony...happily that will be reduced in Sept/Oct.
