@Stranger516: Here’s how I would handle this situation so that you aren’t disappointed:
Don’t get your hopes up (I know this is hard because I am the exact same way!).
What I would do, is go over all the things you want to see. Get super stoked about the amazing architecture, funky clubs, cool people you meet, and other things that you are looking forward to on this trip. This way you are focused on what you will be doing, and not what might happen while you are over there 🙂
Do some research, find some cool things to do while you are there. This will also keep your mind of a potential proposal.
When you are there, just enjoy the moment. Try not to think about a proposal. Keep yourself focused on what you are doing in the moment and let things happen as they happen.
I know this won’t be easy, as you have been waiting a long time for this. But try to stay focused on how amazing it will be to be on vacation and to see all the amazing sites that Europe has to offer.
If he proposes, awesome! If not, well you are in Europe! Enjoy it as much as you can!
Everyone’s time comes when they lease expect it. This is usually how it happens.
Take my friend for instance: She has been with her man probably as long as you have been with your’s. She has had 3 kids with him, and they have lived together most of the 6 years or so they have been together.
She was upset after one of their anniversaries that he didn’t propose. She asked him about it and he shrugged it off, saying he didn’t need marriage to prove his love to her. She was disappointed to say the least.
Well, her sisters went on a trip. And when they came back, she went to the airport to pick them up. When she got home, BOOM! He proposed. Seem’s kind of random, right? That’s what sometimes happens, they propose when you aren’t expecting it. Which is a good play on their part, because then you are surprised 🙂
