Hey girls (and guys),
I had a thought the other day and wanted to know… When your bf (at the time) was just about to propose (say about, a week or even days before) was he absent minded? Forgetful? Scatter brained?
I added a poll just for fun 🙂

I didn’t know a proposal was coming, so I didn’t notice if he was absent minded before the proposal. I do remember “certain’ questions he asked me about a week before it happened.

No he was actually the opposite, way more focused and tuned in to everything that was going on. He went from never checking the mail to running to it before I got home, he was on top of all of our household chores and he kept following up with me to make sure I was going to attend the new years party we were throwing together in our apartment. Crazy man 😉

He wasn’t I don’t think. But after we got engaged, I was. I left my cell phone at home multiple times when everyone was trying to call me about the engagement. I was super anxious after it happened, even though I really wanted to get engaged:)

He absolutley was. I actually got mad at him for not doing some things that I had asked him today the day before. He not only was planning and going out with parents to ask for permission, but he said it consumed all of his thoughts and made him forget his normal routine. We laughed about it afterwards.

No he was actually super organized and really into planning everything. He’s normally very laid back so it was kind of unnerving but we were preparing for a trip to the West Coast from the East Coast right after he started a new job so I figured it was just the fact that our plans required a lot of planning.

He wasn’t scatter-brained at all. He was completly and perfectly normal. Which is why the timing was so surprising – I had no idea it was going to happen when it did.

He wasn’t, but he was definitely nervous. He did more “sweet” things than normal, he asked weird questions (one of the more memorable: Are you sure you want to marry me? lol) and he was just acting a bit…off. He got a bit MORE organized, but LESS focused, if that makes sense.

No, not at all. But he was extremely lovey dovey, attentive, and just generally a very happy camper.

Not so forgetful, but I started noticing that when we would relax on the couch or in bed together he would keep grabbing my left hand and would rub my fingers – he did this SEVERAL times in the span of a few weeks. He was super worried about getting the wrong size and later told me he would run into the bathroom (where he had the ring hidden) and try in on his pinky trying to gage my finger.
I didn’t have the heart to tell him that this whole scence was very obvious, and I knew excatly what he was doing 😉

Yes, he was acting SO different. He kept taking phone calls in the backyard for like an hour at a time. He was very sketchy!

He wasn’t acting different at all. I had no clue it was coming. Even the few seconds before when he was trying to figure out to do b/c there were people around us and he wanted it to be private (for my sake), he managed to figure it all out without me suspecting a thing.
