Hey all you Bees!
I’ve heard that a sign of an iminent proposal is him making you feel extra special, i.e. buying you “just because” flowers, buying you dinner, getting you small gifts, etc. I wanted to know how many women experience(d) this relatively soon before they were proposed to.
My guy has (in the past week or two) gotten me “just because” flowers, asked me out to lunch twice, offered to buy me things I like at the local spring fair, and the like. He also said that if it was nice at the beach today, he would have woken me up early to drive to the beach an hour away to look for glass floats that were recently hidden on the beach. If you find one, you enter a drawing for a nice weekend getaway and get to keep the float.
I know he’s not cheating, so I guess my other question is whether you think this sounds like a proposal is iminent.

Very suspicious. Sounds like he might be up to something! I had no idea anything was going on the day we got engaged. I think he was trying really hard to hide it.

chevaldame: My FI wasn’t too out of the ordinary except he was more generous in bed in the lead up!!! 😛 Wish that had continued lol…
But those look like great signs OP!!! Enjoy the excitement but keep your suspicions to yourself (and don’t forget to take care of those nails!!)

I didn’t notice any changes at all. It was only probably 30mins before hand at dinner that he suddenly seemed super weird and more like we were on a first date and he was overly smiley and strange hahaha.

Lol. I didn’t really catch on at all – which is weird, considering we had discussed it and I knew it was going to happen sometime. Looking back on it, he was super cuddly and happy to get the stuff from tall cabinets for me – like any thing I needed help with? Heck yes, he can do that! Haha! He also completely arranged a date night (which at the time I thought was super adorable but had no idea. Still. I was so oblivious). Once we got to the light show that he thought I’d like so we should totally go (plus…I LOVE Christmas lights. so much. so I was super distracted by pretty lights) he was INSISTENT we go by the bridge. Still no idea, lol. But yes, he acted quite strange now that I think about it, but really – it wasn’t anything that I immediately associated a proposal.

My Fi was a bit more romantic before the proposal, taking me out for fancy meals, helping out round the house. It’s definitely possible and great either way!

His behavior towards me did not change at all leading up to the proposal. Same old, same old.
I say enjoy the extra attention, but not necessarily sit around expecting a proposal because of it. That is just setting yourself up for disappointment if nothing happens, and then you’ll be upset for no good reason.

My FI was pretty much the opposite for the week leading up to the proposal!
He made rude comments about marriage in general, he would change the radio station if an ad for a jewelry store came on, he was pretty much a jerk. Mostly because he didn’t want me to suspect anything.
While we were getting ready to go to the New Year’s party that he proposed at, I got super upset and almost stared crying, And I yelled at him. I told him basically that he was an asshole for making me feel bad for being excited to spend my life with him. We were engaged approximately seven hours later. And I felt like a gigantic douche bag.

What in the absolute hell is Weddingbee doing to my posts? 🙁 Won’t let me post and then posts a completely separate reply on every other post than the one I wanted to reply to. *sigh*

gillykat824: I was wondering if you confused two posts :p

It sounds a little suspicious to me! But then again, maybe he just wants to spice things up a little? Either way, it’s sweet. I’m waiting for an engagement myself and though I already know that he’s bought a ring (I was told by my sister so technically I’m not supposed to know), I don’t see too much of a difference in my bf’s weirdness. He took me out to fro-yo the day he bought the ring…and I felt like he was acting a little funny, but I think it was just because he was trying not to seem so suspicious. To each his own, I guess. Keep us in the loop!
