    We went on a trip to the beach 3 weeks before he proposed, and I wanted to go walking alone with FI every night… lol. We had gone with his cousins.

     

    ETA: of course he didn’t propose then, but yeah I was like “HEY let’s be all romantic and stuff” haha

    No offense, but setting up your version of what a perfect proposal scenario is takes away from his version of a perfect proposal scenario.  Let him do his thing.  You likely aren’t going to be able to control the proposal so you should let go and enjoy it, whatever way he has planned.

     

    After all, when he does pop the question, you know it’s going to be perfect, even if it’s a way you’ve never imagined.

    @Fleur.De.Lis:  I getchya.  I just hink that since it is going to be perfect any way he does it, you’re putting too much effort into “swaying it” by setting up a scenario.

     

    I really could go for a slurpee right now, lol!!

    I can’t even think about it (yeah right…I’ve thought about every way it could be done).  I have given up on trying to guess when or where it could be because I don’t want to get my hopes up and be disappointed.  Plus, I already know the ring I’m getting so I would like there to be a LITTLE bit of surprise

    @Fleur.De.Lis:  My sister and I always get slurpees together.  I miss her.  Boooo for moving so far away from family just because you grew up!

    SO and I ran a Half Marathon in Disney World this month and we spent a few days in Disney World while we were there.  The week before the trip,I thought to myself… hey SO, this could be nice- I love Disney World and that would be a magical place to propose!! It would have been a great opportunity, but I guess SO has something else in mind… hopefully soon… lol

    I don’t think it’s crazy. He might feel it’s serendipity, it doesn’t have to interfere with his plans. I accidentally CHANGED THE moment to what we now agree is a BETTER moment.

    He told me later he had planned to propose on this bridge but I was so taken with a temple we were visiting I didn’t want to leave, I was just bowled over by how magical the buildings and the gardens were. I was also getting tired and saying I might want to just stay there until it was time to go home. He realized that if we went to the bridge I might be tired/less excited and no way it was going to live up to to the majesty of what we were experiencing at that moment, so he went for it there! 😀

    He took what I was so excited about and changed the plan for that, so it can happen. (I didn’t do it intentionally, but I did “set up” the moment without realizing it and he was happy to change his plan to what was so obviously opportune and perfect.)

    I’ve got so many idealized situations in my head and they all revolve around Christmas and snow. If either of those elements are incorporated into the proposal (which one definitely will be since he said it’ll happen at the end of December) then I will be one happy girl.

    Um, YES. There’s this park/beach that we often go to stroll and every time I’m there I think of what a perfect proposal spot it would be. We’re going on a trip for our 5-year-anniversary in a couple of weeks and it’s going to take all my power to NOT spend the whole thing anxious for a proposal. And then I keep thinking if it doesn’t happen on the trip, we’re going to see The Lion King a few days later and that a night dressed up and out on the town would also make a great proposal… If he misses that, there’s always Christmas, and if he misses that, there’s New Year’s… if he misses THAT, there’s Valentine’s Day… if he misses that, there’s my birthday. And I refuse to let myself think past then because FOR THE LOVE OF GOD YOU HAVE SO MANY CHANCES BETWEEN NOW AND FEBRUARY TO JUST DO IT ALREADY.

    To a degree I feel like I’m doing the oposite!  Trying to let HIM plan the event, since I figure he will only propose if he’s planned the weekend.  I’m doing a lot of, “so, have anything in mind you want to do next weekend…???”

     

    Ha ha, too funny.

    @Fleur.De.Lis:  We were on vacation in Japan and we visited a unesco site called Ten-Ryuji Zen temple. We went there right after seeing a really film-worthy bamboo grove nearby (also super romantic) and it was amazing. You can explore the entire temple complex and gardens, including hanging out in the tatami rooms. It’s so relaxing and atmospheric, even when there’s people around it doesn’t stop being gorgeous. Here are some pro pictures of the area to give you an idea, it’s was seriously the most magical place on Earth if you ask me.

    The funny thing is that the temple wasn’t even on our to do list originally, we just saw it on the way to something else and decided to check it out.
