So, he knows I wanted a proposal in the snow, he wants one in the sunshine! My SO is very stubborn!
When reading the ‘when do you want your proposal’ post yesterday, a few comments made me laugh, and SO came in from the bathroom to see what I was laughing about. I explained, and he asked what others were saying (He initiated, which is good as i’m trying to follow Mr Bees pact). I told him about people wanting a proposal at christmas, and added that it isn’t something I would want – he replied ‘good, because you’re not going to get it!’, I added I wouldn’t want it on my birthday either (early Jan), and he said ‘good, you won’t be getting that either!’. I then said I’d happily settle for our 8 year anniversary though (mid January) to which he didn’t respond.
I don’t think this was him getting pissed off, so what do you think… An anniversary proposal? I’m not getting my hopes up anyway, just found this a bit strange…

Hm… That’s a tough one. I tend to not say anything when someone has guessed what I’m thinking of, which is really counterintuitive, because obviously they’re going to know they guessed right, but I guess I’m not the brightest bulb in the tanning bed. Maybe your SO does that, too. Anyway, he definitely could be trying to throw you off…but I’m not sure how. Could he have gone silent to make you THINK it’ll be your anniversary and he’s actually planning a Christmas/birthday proposal? Or another day altogether? What I’m saying is, IDK girlfriend. Haha.
But I know how you feel about trying to not get your hopes up for the anniversary proposal. This past year, I told my now-fiance that I did not want any gifts (which was a damn lie. I wanted a ring!) and I thought I was giving him a grand opportunity to surprise me with the ultimate gift. But no, that’s not how he saw it. He saw it as “Oh, she really doesn’t want anything.” So I bought him a really nice engraved necklace and I got nothing. I was really disappointed but I didn’t let him know that I was. I finally got my proposal about three and a half months later, though.
Blah. Sorry for the supah long response. Can’t wait to read your proposal story when it happens, though!!

Oooh yes very tough indeed. Maybe he was testing the waters of when exactly a proposal would catch you out? If you told him you don’t want it on your birthday or Christmas, he might think you actually do. But now you’ve said you would like it for your anniversary, he may think it’s not going to be a surprise if you expect it.
Completely puzzling I know, my best bet is not to focus too much on an occassion, he may very well ask in between, on a random date to make it special. Good luck 🙂
