Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend! I’ve got some weird things that need some explaination:
So… It’s Saturday. J went to ‘work’ this morning. Hmm. Of all the jobs he’s ever had not ONCE has he ever gone into work on a Saturday morning at 8:30am. I know there are some job sites that he’s working on in town here, but again, he has never worked on a Saturday. Last night he told me that he had to visit a couple of these job sites. Do you think it was a cover for something else? When he told me, I just looked at him like… WTF? Why?
He will be home by 12noon today. After that we’re going across the border to do some shopping, have some dinner, and go on a haunted tour of Old Fort Niagara (LOVE haunted places!!!). The tour was my idea. The shopping and dinner was his. For the women who are engagedmarried already: Did your guy propose at a place that YOU planned to go to? Just curious.
I dunno. He’s just been acting a little strange: A little more lovey dovey at night when we go to bed (snuggling more), and again this morning, rather than yelling from the door, “Be back in a bit!”, he came into the kitchen and gave me a big smooch, lol. Odd.
What’s your opinion? Again, for the engagedmarried women: Did your guy act weird in the days or hours leading up to the proposal? If so, what was he doing?

Mine only acted weird in the five minutes leading up to it. But he’s VERY level headed and not a very emotional person, so he honestly didn’t really get nervous or emotional about the proposal until it was actually happening.
If your guy is more of an emotional type, it’s certainly possible he would be acting differently.
Based on the number of posts like yours I’ve seen over my months on weddingbee though, my (unsolicited) advice would be to look forward to spending the day with him – not expecting a proposal. Too often I’ve seen posts where poor waiting bees are so focused on wanting the proposal that they admit they didn’t enjoy what would have otherwise been an awesome day together! Easier said than done though, right? 🙂

Definetly. I’m really looking forward to checking out this haunted fort!! A proposal would be a bonus, but I’ve learned not to get my hopes up for every little thing. It was hard to do at first, but I just taught myself to think: “Nah, don’t be silly.”

I agree with DDW that it’s good to enjoy the event even if it doesn’t happen. My husband wasn’t acting weird leading up to the proposal so I didn’t really know.

He didn’t act weird at all, because it wasn’t a surprise proposal. We discussed it together and it just happened. I wouldn’t get your hopes up too much, just in case it doesn’t happen, but that tour sounds awesome! I hope you have a good time, regardless. 🙂

I’m not engaged yet so I can’t offer you any insight, but I am keeping my fingers crossed! It does sound very promising, but just enjoy all the extra special romantic gestures on their own merit instead of reading too much into them, lol. Please come back and give us an update on the haunted tour because I’d love to do something like that, it sounds like so much fun!

Hmm that IS very suspicious! My FI didnt act differently at all, except for the fact that he was adamant about signing for a package that was going to be arriving at our door(he told me it was something for his mom lol)…I was like, “Ok I get it dude, you wanna sign for it sheesh!” hahaha!! Whatever is going on it sounds like youve got a great guy and a fun night ahead of you!! Good luck let us know if anything *sparkly* makes an appearance!

Ooh I hope its something sparkly. But try not to read too much in it just in case. Goodluck tonight sounds like fun!

My family decided to go camping (I’m the camping lover, not him), and that’s where my hubby proposed. I think it was nice that he went with my interest, and it was more of a surprise b/c he wasn’t planning an elaborate trip, or asking to go camping which I know he doesn’t love as much as I do. (well didn’t love, it’s growing on him!).

I hope its something good!!! My guy was all nervous through out dinner and wasnt acting like himself all day so maybe it could be time!! You’ll have to let us know!

My advice: if you over-analyze everything, you’re going to drive yourself crazy!
Enjoy your day and his increased affections regardless of whether or not he proposes. 🙂

Nothing happened 🙁 But the tour was still pretty cool. It was more for kids and it was really entertaining. Oh well.

Well, he could be gearing up to have these haunted tours and other things leading up to the big day for Halloween, throwing you off the scent!LOL. You never know. 🙂
I do admit, you are one brave lady. I wanted to do a haunted tour in Savannah, but I was too chicken.LOL

Days no, hours YES! We were vacationing in Hawaii and the whole time had been very relaxed. He waited a couple days into our vaca so I wasn’t expecting it. We were eating and he was rushing me like crazy!! I wanted to stop in all these shops and he was like NO NO NO I want to go sit on the beach. have some coronas and watch the sunset. I had no idea why he was so insistant to be there before sunset or why he HAD to do it that day. Turns out he just wanted to propose to me on the beach during the sunset, lol.
