Yes.  We had already bought the ring & I knew he was eager.  Though it was April Fools’ Day.  He didn’t realize that : ).

MissKota1419:  No, it was a complete surprise. DH is a great listener, I guess he must have heard me say I love cushion cut diamonds, and great at picking out jewlery. And he knew that when he proposed that I wanted it to be a surprise and he agreed. I had no idea he was even shopping for a ring or designing one. It happened on a random day. It wasn’t a holiday or birthday.

Er, yes and no.

We’d bought the ring the day before, so I knew it was coming.

But I was thinking he’d wait a couple of weeks, but he asked me the next day! He couldn’t wait any longer with the ring in his possession. Also, he had apparantly asked my dad a few weeks before without me knowing!

I knew it was coming, but not exactly when. He completely suprised me with the timing as I had been whining about it that morning and he told me it would be on his timetable. he was also heading out of town for about a week so I figured he wouldn’t do it. I knew it was coming but the timing was a complete suprise (honestly I think he needed the little push though.). I wouldn’t havehad itany other way.

I knew it was coming cuz I found the slip from the store and he was acting very funny.  I didn’t no when he was going to do it.  I didn’t know much about diamonds so I didn’t really understand the ring specs I was seeing.

I also knew it was coming. We had discussed our timeline and what we wanted for the future and he did take me with him to pick out my ring, though he did that 6 months before actually proposing! He had coffee with my dad a week before he did it and I knew there was no other reason he’d be doing that than to ask for his blessing 🙂 I was in the loop pretty much the whole time and I wouldn’t change a thing it was exciting having that anticipation and knowing it was coming soon

Yes, I knew, because he was dropping hints like crazy. Plus a day before our 1 year anniversary we were watching some youtube video together on his phone, and a notification popped up reminding him to propose in 24 hours. I just pretended like I didn’t see anything.

Knew it was coming so I lived in anticipation every time we went out to dinner but he picked the most random day in order to surprise me so I never expected it 🙂

My proposal is so close to being here. But I don’t know the exact day. I’m sure if he plans a date, I’ll know it’s coming, because dates are usually my idea 😉

MissKota1419:  Not a clue. As a matter of fact, he was so quiet all day, I thought he was upset with me. But then we had only been dating 6 months so had no previous discussions

Well, for a while I had known it was coming, but I thought he might wait for up to 6 more months or so, and then I accidentally found out/figured out tgec exact day he was planning on 7 days in advance. But we decided to proceed and I’m so happy we did, the details were all a surprise, and it was still so romantic 🙂

It’s weird I had a felling he was going to even thought we were fighting on vday,  plus just came home from having do stuff about his dead uncle . I ruin him asking me really,  plus I didn’t like him asking just because someone die in his family.  We been married 7 years together 9 years with two girls, but I wish so much he re ask me and have a real wedding. I just don’t feel really married since was court house with No one there other then his mom and Dad.

MissKota1419:  Yes and no…. We had been dating at that time for 11.5 years so I knew there would be one. And then when he had to up his credit card limit right at the car rental place when we were travelling because he’d maxed out his card, my spidey senses came out. But then, after 5 days of no proposal, I’d let my guard dow and then he proposed! I was quite surprised!
