I had a slight hunch that he would propose on our one year anniversary in Hawaii. Nothing else would compare after that, so I was hoping he would make the most of it! My mum had more of a hunch I did though, I was trying to calm myself down so I wouldnt be disappointed if it didn’t happen!

The hunch was right!

Only because you asked, I will try to help you not get your hopes up too high. As you have told it, that conversation may actually hint that he is not planning to propose this weekend. If he was actually planning on proposing on Saturday, I would guess that he would be a bit more subtle. If he is wanting to keep it a surprise, it might be a little too obvious of him to so overtly discuss proposals and wedding ideas with you. I would be more suspicious if he got suddenly quiet or secretive about his ideas…

I am in a similar boat. My SO and I are leaving for a romantic vacation on Friday, and I have a pretty good hunch that he is going to do it sometime over our trip. He is not a very good liar, so when he jokes about how far off his deadline to propose is and jokingly torments me with comments about how many more months it will be, he is not very convincing. I have an instinctive feeling that a proposal is going to be much, much sooner. However, I do not want to spend the whole vacation anxiously anticipating it, especially since I am not totally certain that it is going to happen. If he doesn’t do it then, if my own hunch is wrong, I don’t want the beauty of our time together to be tainted or overshadowed by disappointment. So in a similar way I am trying very hard not to get my hopes up too high!

Yay! Your exams will be over! Good luck on your last exam for Saturday. Enjoy the freedom of not feeling like you have to study and have a wonderful time eating and drinking with that fantastic boyfriend of yours.

If a proposal is coming soon, this might be the last “end of exams” celebration you have together as boyfriend/girlfriend – savor it!
