It’s occured to me just how terribly clever it is for guys to let their ladies know that the proposal is coming soon™ and then drag it out for a little while. When else are we going to HAVE be completely agreeable to every little thing they suggest/ask us to do? Because, heaven forbid, we say ‘no’ and potentially ruin their masterfully thought out surprise proposal. 🙂
“Why yes, I would LOVE to go with you to Home Depot/Auto Zone/that crappy diner you love so much!”
Because it would be just like you to think it was super romantic to propose in front of a wall of wrenches/motor oil/keno machines…
“Of course I’ll help you with your laundry, Love!”
Because, maybe, sneaky fella that you are, you’ve hidden that ring in, um, a dirty sock…?
“I’ll definitely come shovel snow with you! No problem!”
Because this is most likely just a clever ruse on your part fo get me outside in the snow for a charming snow globe -esque propos…oh wait? we really are shoveling? Fine, hand me my gloves…
** This thread is for post-valentine’s day entertainment/humor purposes only. I apologize if you, indeed, found your ring in a dirty sock. 😉 **
Though I am slightly curious if anyone has tagged along with their guy somewhere you normally wouldn’t have simply because this proposal could have jumped out at you anywhere?

@HellaCooper: lol! I love those examples.
For me, I kept having ideas of when/how he might do it, but he still caught me off guard! It was at like 10am before we ate breakfast. Maybe I didn’t expect it because I was still waking up? lol

@HellaCooper: Lol and honestly it goes vice versa. Some of them say it will take a while and then surprise.
Either way, I understand what you are saying! It is driving me nuts. In my situation, his soon and my soon are different.

Hahahahahaha!! This is one of the reasons I chose a specific month for my upcoming proposal – I could stand a month of that kind of turmoil, but no longer! Plus, I’ve always imagined a fall proposal – blue skies, cool weather, leaves changing into every color.

He gave everything away even down to the day and STILL managed to surprise me. It’s a mix of his bad lying and my obliviousness.

coming soon™ hahahahah my SO is definitely using that…it really does exist.
He said one night “Let’s go for a walk” after I heard the infamous coming soon™ …..so I was like “Oh!!! Sure!!! Where to?” “The grocery store down the block”
I’m suspicious of everything he suggests now -_- it’s a TOTAL time buyer guys must all know about
