I have been anticipating a proposal at each major event this whole year, and recently I have been worried that SO will propose on my Birthday (it is 2 weeks away) since I will be 25. He has been putting money on a ring, and by know I guess that it is paid off and sized.
I am ready for him to ask, but was hesitant that it would be on my birthday, because it is very traditional and we are not. So we were making dinner last night, and he mentioned that he really didn’t know what to get me for my birthday. I said “it really isn’t that hard. just do it already”. He looked at me like he didn’t know what I was talking about, and after feigning confusion for a while he said “I’m not going to propose on your birthday”. He explained that he thinks it would be too obvious and isn’t something he would do (thinks it’s a bit tacky – though I know for many others it is not. Just for us). He is very particular and a perfectionist, and went on to explain that when he does it he needs to be sure of what he’s saying and it has to all be “laid out”. This is very sweet and I got all excited. The problem is he takes so long to do things because they have to be perfect! So it could take awhile before he has everything “ready”.
Now I just need to cultivate some patience.

Hope he dosen’t make you wait too long!!! Everyone’s diffferent, but I too don’t want a birthday proposal (my b-day is jan 9…hoping it happens before then!) I just want the proposal to be it’s own special day. Good luck to you…sounds like you have a really sweet SO!

my birthday is in 4 weeks!
i would love a proposal before the end of the year but i know the chances of that are slim to none. so i keep telling myself that it will be before the end of 2012, haha.
i, too, think birthday/holiday/anniversary proposals are tacky. I feel bad for my guy, because we have my birthday, our anniversary, and christmas all in the same month! so far every year i have had to tell him to relax and that i don’t expect one big crazy present after another.
good luck waiting! have fun painting your nails a new color every day or something lol

I can’t bring myself to be selective about when my SO proposes, because just the act of hiim doing it will be a miracle in itself! So I won’t be picky! It can be Christmas, Easter, his birthday, my birthday, or any other day. My birthday is the 14th and he is planning a trip (that was a suprise until he and some friends spilled the beans)! I will not complain at all if he does it, but I’m also OK if he doesn’t, as long as it happens soon!

I actually really wanted a Christmas proposal, but he did it before 🙂

My birthday is in early January so cannot wait until then – of course SO is more than welcome to propose before then, hehe 😀

Well my birthday was fanstastic. Seriously, the best birthday I have had in a very long time. I am glad he didn’t do it on the day, so I could focus on enjoying the time with my family and friends.
Anyway, it has been almost 6 months since I took him to the store to show him the ring I fell in love with, and still no proposal. He made it clear it won’t happen when I’m expecting it, which means no birthdays or holidays or our anniversary (in Feb). The problem is we are in holiday season! I don’t want to wait until march or later! And I set a deadline for myself that if we weren’t engaged by our 6th year anniversary (middle of Feb) then I would have to seriously talk with him about how this waiting has been affecting me and the stress it is putting on our relationship. This is supposed to be a fun and care free time, but knowing he has been paying the ring off but has shown no signs of proposing soon is making it hard for me to be care free.
I am very much done with being his girlfriend and would like to be him Fiance now. I want to be his wife. I can’t understand why this is taking him so long. He has made it clear many times he wants to be with me forever and that he doesn’t want to go anywhere or be with anyone, so come on already!
