Fingers crossed for you, how exciting!  I had to click through to read because for a second I thought you might be one of my best friends who I know is getting engaged on Friday – her boyfriend of 2.5 years told her best friends to get some help with planning his proposal 🙂

My boyfriend proposed at his Birthday dinner back in 2012. I was TOTALLY and UTTERLY surprised and speechless!!  I kept wondering why he was making such a big deal out of his 42nd birthday and making sure all his friends (even some co-workers) and family were there….Now i know why. We are getting married in a small simple ceremony November 1st of this year.

Congratulations! Maybe?! As exciting as this is, my only advice is – don’t assume it’s going to happen! You’re going to start planning the details and script in your head but letting the moment happen as HE plans it will make it all the better! Whether it’s on the 19th or on a random Tuesday in October, the love of your life will make it a moment to remember.

A friend of mine was SURE her boyfriend (now husband) was going to propose on a holiday, and ended up crying at the end of the night when it didn’t happen. The random weekend it DID happen, she cried from happiness and realized it was so much better than any of the times she expected it before.

So if it happens on Friday, congratulations! If it happens later on, I’ll congratulate you then, too!

If you want it to happen, I do hope it happens for you, but I would also be prepared for the possibility that he might be getting you a promise ring for your 2 year anniversary.

Generally, if you’ve been in a long distance relationship and haven’t yet lived together, it seems a bit fast for an engagement. But I don’t know you and your SO, so it certainly could be the case that he’s ready to propose.

loveofmylifemay2015:  How exciting! I feel like my SO might be proposing on my birthday, 4th of oct. We have been together for 4 years and talking about marriage a bit lately. He was asking me REALLY weird questions last night, and mentioned he had a surprise for my birthday, saying it was an experience and a present.. also asking if I would usually prefer to do ‘things’ at home or out, and if we were out how many ppl would i like around?! weird, and very suss!! lol. All the best for your (potential) engagement!! can’t wait to hear the details 😀 but yeah I too are excited but not completely excited that it’s definitely a proposal juuuusstt yet…

Don’t get too excited! He would need to know your ring size to order the ring, which could take weeks to come in. At least in my experience!

I agree with everyone else. Don’t get your hopes up too high just on case. Like TheGridMonster said it could be for a promise ring and as cls9q mentioned it does take a few weeks after rings are ordered before they come in. 

In saying that I’m excited for you and hoping for the best!!

I know my BF has a ring on order just not sure when he will pick it up so I’m sitting on the edge of my seat every time we go anywhere together!!

loveofmylifemay2015:  Congrats! I hope it comes together as you hope, although as others have said, I’d warn you against getting ypur hopes up. My BF also asked for my ring size after we moved in together. That was five months ago…

I think my proposal is coming in October. We have a mini vacation planned, and he keeps saying how much fun October will be. And when we were booking our trip, he kept pushing for the more expensive waterfront hotels because, in his words, they were “more romantic.”
