I know right now I’m not the best judge at all, as I believe that everything SO does out of the ordinary is a possible proposal.
SO is a very patient guy, he also likes to think about now, as tomorrow is too far away yet. He also doesn’t thinks a lot about my clothes or is interested in my outfit planning.
On Saturday we’re going to the beach for a week. SO’s parents happen to have a house at the same city where I spent my teenage years, and SO knows how important that city is to me.
And he’s literally ALL THE TIME telling me how excited he is to arrive, for us to be there on our own, etc. He’s been asking me to write down all the things I want to do, to see, to eat, and he’s planning everything (when he just goes with the flow without thinking much about it).
AND he is been asking me for weeks if I had already planned what I was going to wear and things like that.
This unusual behaviour is just making me to go crazy and think that he is planning to propose there. (How romantic would it be if he proposes at the city where I became the woman I am?)
Rationally, I know he won’t. I know he will, at the earliest, propose after his brother gets married on September. I know it’s not fair to tell everybody we’re engaged just before his brother’s wedding. (But in my dreams, we can keep it a secret until October!)
I know I will be expecting a proposal that is not goint to happen… But I can’t help it!

@skinnypinkmartini: I felt like that at one point, but felt CRAZY because there was no WAY DH was going to propose SO quickly (like 1.5 years)
So I called a friend and was like “Talk me down! I KNOW it’s not going to happen!”
…And it TOTALLY did!

@skinnypinkmartini: Something I don’t understand. Why is it bad to get engaged before the brother’s wedding? I think as long as your BF doesn’t propose AT the wedding/reception, then you’re totally fine to get engaged before the wedding.
That’s just my two cents though. But it does sound promising that your SO will propose during your vacation! But just in case, try to put it out of your mind and focus on just enjoying the beach with your SO 🙂

Eeeeeee!!! I’m excited just thinking about it. I say plan, just in case, but of course have a great time either way!!!

I think that it is good to dream but don’t let it get the best of you. Do not fixate on a specific place and time for a proposal tho.
I was talking to a friend who is recently married and has designed and is now building their home. She told me that she tries her best not to get excited over anything at all… I think that is sad.
I say… dream on!

@LadyBlackheart: I don’t know. I know it sounds silly, but it made sense in my mind thou. Like, somehow, telling everybody that we’re engaged may “shadow” the last month of their engagement. (Now it sounds EVEN sillier!)
@BrandNewBride: I’ve talked to my BFF and she’s super excited but of course tells me that I should think he is about to propose everytime he does something unusual.
@stephee: That’s what I plan to do! It’s my favourite place in Spain, and I know we will have a great time even if there’s no proposal.
@tiff-tiff-tiff: I’m a dreamer, I can’t help it 🙂 But of course I’m trying not to let those dreams get into my relationship, which is great at the moment!
Thanks girls for the support! Let’s see what happens, although after writing it here I felt relieved! Happens or not, I will be happy to spend a week with my man!
