@glamvicious:  So your poor boyfriend has gone through all the trouble of putting this all together to surprise you, and all he gets in return is “pretend ecstatic”. Good job.

@honestly:  +1  Although I guess she also likes the “cost of the ring and the size”….

@honestly:  would you cut the sarcasm if she planned to be open and expressed the depth of her disappointment to him? She was only sharing her actual feelings with us. I think that she is going to pretend to be estatic so she doesn’t hurt his feelings.

@tiff-tiff-tiff:  Yes, I get that she doesn’t want to hurt his feelings. Of course. But… I guess I just think she misses out on the actual surprise itself. I mean, how awesome would it be to just not be expecting it and then have it happen? And it’s not like she found out by accident, either – she had to “break [her] sister down” to know. I would kick myself so hard as it is if I accidentally found out about my surprise engagement/party/anything. Hmm.

@honestly:  well… some folks doesn’t like surprises. She wanted to know, so she investigated. Big deal.

First and foremost CONGRATULATIONS on your upcoming Engagement

That said, I GET YOUR POSITION… it sucks when people make decisions based on THEIR WISHES / NEEDS and not those for whom the person they are giving the Gift / Party for

And that sucks…

Obviously “making a show of it” is very important to your BF… probably because as you say, its been a long time coming… so now somehow he feels by making a show, he’s compensating for the timing

Uh no

Some of us still aren’t crazy about Surprises…

He’s getting Engaged to you… he should have taken that FACT about you into consideration (and the word is CONSIDERATION)

That said, you’ll get thru it.  Because the fact will be it will be short term pain (a few hours) for long term gain

Sad to hear that as far as you know they’ll be none of your peeps along to share the event with… at least that would have made it soooo much better !!

— — —

The other Bees who see your post as being ungrateful etc, clearly have issues with being able to read the words as they are written.  You said nothing bad or hateful against your BF, you merely were stating your frustration at knowing what is going down, and HOW it will unfold.  And that is fair.

Otherwise this would be a crazy giddy “He’s got the ring” post.

CONGRATULATIONS!!! Hopefully when it comes you’ll enjoy yourselves and the party and who’s there/not there won’t bother you too much. Happy planning!

@glamvicious:  My wants are my wants? What about his wants? You know that this is supposed to be for both of you, right? 

Well, hopefully when you got engaged a month ago you were nicer.

@glamvicious:  Would it be inappropriate to ask your sister to bring a couple of your girlfriends? I’m sure the ship can accomodate a couple more people and that way you’ll have more than one person who is around your age.
