Nope.  I feel like he should do it.  I don’t know why, maybe I’m a little old fashioned but it wouldn’t feel right  if I proposed to him.  Keep us posted if you decide to propose to him and welcome!  🙂

I think it depends on the man. Traditionally, yes, it’s the man’s position to be the one to extend the proposal, but if he’s not the type to be emasculated by something like that, I don’t see a problem with it. Every couple’s different, and you see that kind of thing on sitcoms all the time. I guess if it feels right, it might not be a bad idea.

I would definitely put some feelers out before doing anything because if you two have been ring shopping and he’s thinking about marriage and a proposal of his own (which it definitely sounds like he is), he may have something wonderful already planned. He may think you’re expecting a proposal on your anniversary, but who knows if he has something planned for some time sooner than that so it will truly be a surprise. My point is, he may have something planned already that he’s really looking forward to, but if you go ahead with a proposal of your own, you may be robbing him of an opportunity he’s really excited about.

I haven’t and don’t plan on doing it.  I’ve just always envisioned being proposed to.. not the other way around.  I think my SO would prefer it that way as well.  However, I don’t think that there’s anything at all wrong with you proposing to your guy.  I say go for it if you’re both ready!  I’d love to hear details afterwards.  :o)

ETA: I actually just asked my SO what he would think if I proposed & he said that he would like it.. that it would make him feel really special and it would be different.  BUT.. he would still propose to me shortly afterwards & our engagement wouldn’t be “official” until then.  LoL.
