EEEEEEEkkkk!! I just have this feeling. It’s been five years (haha..reason enough), but he’s been acting almost giddy when we mention marriage. We’re also going away to a spot in Maine that is meaninful to both of us.. his friend got drunk and slipped to me one day and said he was going to propose last time we had plans to go to Maine in February. Unfortunately, I had a terrible family tragedy and the trip was cancelled and it took a few months for things to settle down. If he was going to do it then, it just seems logical that he would do it this time.
If you think it’s happening in August, what makes you think so? Want to be waiting buddies??

@KJM33: Here’s hoping! 🙂 Let us know!
It miiight happen by the end of August for me – more likely in September sometime. I’m guessing this because he has told me many times that he wants to propose as soon as he possibly can. But both of us want him to propose with the actual ring, and the custom e-ring he designed probably won’t be ready before then… as far as I know.
I’m okay with waiting another month or two if I have to, though. All in good time. <3

I’ll be your waiting buddy! I know SO has purchased the ring, because I saw a few things that I shouldn’t have in the mail…oops! We’re leaving for a vacation to Boston tomorrow morning, and my birthday is in a couple weeks, so I’m keeping my nails painted and my fingers crossed! Sending good thoughts to you as well! EEEEEk!

Sounds like its going to happen for you! I really hope it does! My boyfriend & I also have a trip planned in August… leave for Niagara falls on Wednesday 🙂 However, he has been dropping hints that the proposal wont come until 2013… but there’s still that little part of me that hopes its just him trying to throw me off the trail (I know shouldn’t think that way!)

I’m excited for all of you girls!!!! Fingers crossed for all of you!! I hope my SO proposes this month!! He doesnt even have a ring though =/ . But around feb/march he was dropping hints that it was going to happen this summer..and he has been super lovey dovey and giddy lately. And I snooped ( Don’t judge LOL) and found out he’s been looking up rings like CRAZY!
So good luck and happy and hopefully short waiting period left for all of you!!

10% chance he will do it in august. He had originally said november but got upet that he let it slip, so he maaaaaay do it sooner to surprise me. And in August we have 2 big things coming up:
-1 year since moving together to a brand new state and starting a new life (aug 11th)
-going for a 3 day vacation to chicago
I dont think it will happen this month. I dont think he has the ring yet either. And im not upset if he doesnt make it happen in August, but 10% is still possible 🙂

I think it will be happening for me this month! We have been together 5 1/2 yrs in Sept. and we are going on the most elaborate vacation we have taken to date at the end of the month. He also wants to move in together soon and he knows I am not moving in as a GF….so we will see! (Fingers crossed)

We are going on vacation in two weeks, and I really think that is when it will happen!!!

I hope mine happens in Aug or early Sep. Mainly because my boyfriend is going to boot camp on Sept 18th. We already bought the ring together and we talked about possibly having a JOP wedding in Dec when he’ll most likely come home for the holidays. We’ll have a formal wedding on our 10 year anniversary in June the following year if possible. It’s a little anti-climatic after 9+ years being together but I want to get proposed to BEFORE I have a wedding. The proposal is more of a formality because I wanted one since I was little.

We are going on a vacation next weekend with my entire extended family and I am TRYING to convince myself that it’s NOT going to happen there.
But he keeps teasing me that “maybe someone brought HIM the ring that he ordered and that’s why I haven’t noticed him going down to Maryland to get it!” and I was like “but have you asked my dad??” and he winked!!! And then was like “I’m not telling you anything!”
AAHHH! I so so so want it to happen at the beach with my family, but I fear I’m going to be SO disappointed if it doesn’t.

Not a chance. Haha. OP, your situation sounds promising, though! I hope it happens on your trip!

It might happen for me by the end (VERY end) of the month! Our 7 year anniversary is August 27th, so maybe the weekend before since that is a Monday? Or who knows, maybe he will ask me then? I guess we will see 🙂 I know the ring is in the works, I just don’t know when it will be finished.

I think so! He has a ring (he doesn’t know I know, and I haven’t seen it, I just know he has it) and we’re about to take our first real vacation to the country where we met and there’s tons of romantic things to do there… in fact if I had to guess the day, I would guess August 9th or close to it… I suppose we’ll see in time if I am correct. Mannnn I hope so!

August 8th is my date, 98% sure. He’s planned the whole trip, which is out of character for him. He’s trying to be all sneaky, but the more he does that, the more obvious it becomes. Just 3 more days!!!!
