    We’ve already shopped for the ring, so I know it’s coming!  I want to be surprised, but I think I’ll know when it’s happening… he’s pretty bad at keeping a secret!

    @MrsWe:  Nope. It won’t be a surprise since I’m helping select the ring. I really don’t need a proposal. I don’t like getting emotional. I’m weird that way.

    I picked it doesn’t matter, but I know how much it matters to him, so yeah I’d like it to be a surprise because I know how happy he’ll be. I’m just excited to be engaged. I do like that I have a pretty narrow timeframe but it will still be a surprise :).

    I love surprises ๐Ÿ˜€ but if for whatever reason he didn’t feel confident arranging something then I’d be happy to just have a talk then get a ring sort of deal lol ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yes, I want it to be a surprise only because I want the moment to be especially special. He wants that too. Not a surprise in the, “oh wow, I never considered marriage with you before” kind of way–we are both definitely in agreement on our future and have talked about it a lot. But the actual “event”, yes. Just to be special and romantic. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I think at this point a little surprise would be nice, but is not necessary.  Since our ring is taking SO LONG I know that as soon as he gets it, he will propose shortly after.  He said he wants to do an official proposal so we have a nice story to tell, so I think I’ll probably know as soon as he starts whatever it is he plans.  But I’m sure I’ll love it regardless.

    I was surprised and thats how I wanted it. He knew I liked round brilliant diamonds, but I didn’t help pick out a ring and we didn’t go shopping together. I had no idea it was going to happen that night.

    I used to dream of being surprised, but I sort of feel like it’s too late for that. After almost 6 years I think the element of surprise is long gone. I’m pretty much hoping for and anticipating it everyday. I’ll just be happy when it happens ๐Ÿ™‚

    I picked out my ring, (showed him the link, told him my size), we planned on Spring 2011 to get engaged – and yet the proposal was still a surprise.  I like how it all went!

    Speaking from the other side, I knew when he was planning on proposing. I knew what my ring looked like. Did knowing and not being entirely suprised take anything away from how special, romantic and wonderful the proposal was? Not in the least Smile

    I couldn’t really care less if he makes an effort to surprise me or not.  I know that I don’t want anything big and ostentatious, or anything public.  A geeky puzzle or something like that might be fun, but again, not needed; I just want him to do it.  I read a story about a guy who proposed to his fiance by tossing the ring box to her while they were eating TV dinners and watching some show, and that seemed great to me!
