…that my BF asked my dad for permission to marry me! He asked him about a month ago and it’s driving me crazy!! Every time he starts acting a little weird or asks me what I want to go in a couple days (he’s not really a planner, more of a take things as they come type of person) I think “hmmm maybe he’s going to ask…” We never have the same day off and we happen to have Sunday off together so he asked me if I wanted to go on a hike in the afternoon if its nice out. Its a wonderful idea, however all I can think about is if this is going to be it. I have no idea if he has a ring but I at least know that with asking my dad he took a huge step in the right direction. Ughhh waiting is hard enough and now knowing that I’m that much closer makes it harder!! I just don’t want to get my hopes up and be disappointed is all!

I know what you mean! My guy talked to my parents months ago (at the end of May) and no ring yet!! “But I agree with vistagirl- now you know to be prepared. Try to play it cool- he may just start planning events every once in a while to throw you off.
But I hope he proposes soon! Keep us updated.

@peaches13:My mom is a blabbermouth, too! My guy didn’t ask my dad, but he did tell my mom about it and asked her to help him to get my ring size! I actually kind of wish I didn’t know when it was going to happen, but my guy has been away for 7 weeks in military and is coming home in a couple weeks for only 7 days before he deploys for 10 months! He already bought the ring, so I KNOW it’s gunna happen somewhere in those 7 days and I really wish I didn’t know! I don’t wanna have to lie to him and pretend to be surprised, but he’d be crushed otherwise

That’s a huge step that he asked your dad. Awesome. Excited for you!
God I can’t even imagine how much that amps up the anticipation…like knowing the ring is in the house. My head would be spinning.

Ah! That’s fabulous news that he asked you dad! Not to drive you more crazy, but I found out after the fact that my FI asked my family permission and got the ring 3 MONTHS before he actually asked me… so glad I didn’t know! I would have gone nuts!!

I would LOVE IT if I knew that my b/f asked my dad, are you kidding me?!?!? It would be such a relief and a huge burden would be lifted off my shoulders. It would tell me that a proposal isn’t too far off and I wouldn’t have to be sitting here waiting and wondering when my b/f would get his arse in gear!

I am super happy that he took the step to ask my dad, don’t get me wrong! It has taken away my worries that he wasn’t going to ask for another 3 years or something. But I am worried it won’t happen as soon as I wish. I have a feeling it won’t happen til around Thanksgiving/Christmas time but who knows. That’s what bothers me. I have no control over when it will happen. But that’s the fun in it right? I guess it just ups my anticipation THAT much more. I just have to keep reminding myself not to worry about it and enjoy the relationship for what it is right now. I have a great man who treats me wonderfully and now I know for sure he is serious about marriage which is of course a HUGE step. I guess for now I will just make sure I have my camera and look at least half way decent wherever we go =)

Not to make you completely defeated but my FI asked my parents in December and proposed in April. He wanted it to be perfect and waited for the right moment.
Luckily I did not know!!! My heart goes out to you – I don’t know what I would do if I had known.

@NEYbee: On the flip side, I was engaged within a week of my now FI talking to my dad. Depends on your guy and his patience level, I guess. And even though I knew it was coming, it was still special–and he still managed to surprise me!
