I’m in a situation where my S.O. sort of misunderstood some innocent jokes from mutual friends and got frustrated and ended up spilling the beans on his plans to propose “in the next couple months”, along with some basic details. I don’t know whether he planned things out of frustration, or if they were already planned. We since have had a conversation and I told him that there is no rush (although I wouldn’t object if he followed his plan) and we’re better than ever.
My question to all you ladies is: Did your man spill the beans about proposing, for whatever reason? If so, did he give you a timeline? Did he end up following that timeline after the beans were spilt?
I’d love to hear all your stories!

Me and my guy were officially engaged after two months of dating. But unofficially pretty much the first weekend we spent together so there wasn’t a proposal as such. We just knew straight away that we wanted to spend the rest of our lives together. My proposal story is very much non existent. I picked my ring out on ebay and sent him a link on facebook! But we are happy and getting married in just over two months. I think I drove it slightly more than him in the beginning but now he can’t wait and already has me saved in his phone with his last name. Its adorable. When you know, you know. There’s no hesitation. Just pure elation.

Actually my FI didn’t tell anyone about it because he knew that if he told my parents they would never be able to keep it a secret. Afterward he told his sister, her husband and their two teenage boys, but swore them to secrecy until he could tell his mother. She was down there for an entire weekend, but somehow they kept it a secret. He was really big on the secrecy part, in part because he didn’t know exactly when he would propose. Guess it was a surprise for everyone!

FI actually spilled the beans about how he was planning to propose but he didn’t have a stand in ring at that moment… So he made a new timeline and he stuck with it. He would have made it sooner but as it worked out my sister got engaged the very next morning and we didn’t want to step on any toes.

chevaldame: I had absolutely NO IDEA!
FI had previously been so completely against remarriage and i’d finally come to a kind of acceptance about this when he surprised me with a proposal…. honestly, I was so shocked I nearly passed out lol

chevaldame: He kept hinting that he had the ring. It was so obnoxious lol, especially when we’d get mail from our insurance company. He’d say “oh this may or may not be your ring insurance”. Also, few days before he proposed, he kept telling me that if I needed my eyebrows waxed, nails done, or a new outfit, to get it done before my bday dinner because “you want to look your best for this night. You’ll be getting a big surprise”

chevaldame: Mine didn’t, and it was a complete surprise (well, not in the sense that we knew we would get married and a proposal was on the cards within the next 2 years, but it was a complete surprise in terms of the timing; I was expecting it to be at least 4 months later on our big summer trip).
However, we chose to ‘upgrade’ my ring and have a replica made, and he presented me with it on a trip to London. I knew he had the ring, and knew he would be giving it to me at some point (and possibly that weekend), but it was still a surprise when he did, and despite the fact we were already engaged I cried lol.
Basically what I’m saying is that even if you know he’s going to propose, it can still be a surprise.

He did indeed. I knew he was going to propose (we were already in the midst of planning the wedding, he just hadn’t gotten the ring yet) and I THOUGHT he was going to try to keep it a secret about what day but basically, he was WAY too excited and pretty much told me everything. It happened just when he’d said. Afterwards, he showed me this huge long planning chart he had about it. It was hysterical. He was just so so so eager. I wasn’t upset, but mostly because it was never going to be a real surprise anyhow, we had decided to get married together.

chevaldame: i knew it was one of 2 weekends about 1.5 months before. i didn’t know how he was going to do it but i knew when. the proposal was still perfect and i wouldn’t change a thing.
