I’m new here but have been “Bee stalking” for a few weeks now. It’s great to know that I’m not crazy for having these anxious feelings about getting engaged, even though I feel like I’m going to lose it if I have to wait a day longer!!!!
My SO and I have decided that we’re getting married next June (which is only 8 months away). We are having a very small ceremony in one of our favorite cities in our favorite park…very simple but so us. I’m freaking out because he won’t tell me anything whatsoever about when/how he plans on proposing. He just says he wants it to be very special and a surprise but AAAHHH!!! Every time I ask him if he’s planned anything he just says “not yet” or “it’ll be very soon”. He also is being very mysterious (his words) because he doesn’t want me knowing anything.
I know it’s going to be soon, but he keeps saying things which make me wonder when. First, he asked his parents a few weeks ago what they thought about us getting engaged soon. Then he thought we should dress up as a bride and groom for our Halloween party. He’s even going as far to get a new tux. He also keeps mentioning how he can’t wait for the party. He’s also telling me that it could be longer than I think it might be. So now I’m confused. Maybe he’s just trying to throw me off. He is being very mysterious. If the topic comes up he jumps to another conversation and just smiles. I know he’s been looking at rings for several months now but I have no idea if he has one yet. He’s so good at keeping all of this a secret and I know it’ll be worth the wait. But I feel like I’m going to explode any minute now or go crazy trying not to!!!!
Sorry this was so long. I feel much better now sharing my feelings instead of keeping them locked away.

Oh, girlie!! About two months ago, I believe I probably wrote a VERY similar post. lol. It sounds like he is definitely trying to throw you off and keep you in suspense. Which, in the long run, is a good thing! I got so confused and frustrated when my FI did it to me especially because I KNEW he had the ring and I knew the proposal could happen any day. I couldn’t wait to finally have him pop the question. However, looking back on it now, I am so glad I was kept in suspense for a while. It made it all the more special 😀
Good luck to you! For your sake, I hope he proposes sooner rather than later 🙂

Well welcome to the ‘Bee! (Or thanks for coming out of hiding!) – be sure to add your name to the waiting list.
It sounds like your guy is moving on plans. I have gotten too much information about my proposal- both on purpose and by accident. Now I’m a little disappointed that I’ve been so nosey and my guy has spilled so much. Even though it’s killer to wait, you will be so surprised and happy when he does ask. Maybe he’ll ask on Halloween??

Welcome! How exciting! Hmm… sounds like he might have a “trick” up his sleeve for Halloween… har har har

@MapleMoose: It would be great if he did have a “trick” up his sleeve for Halloween. I think it’s so cute that he’s putting so much detail into our bride and groom costumes. There will be about 30 of our closest friends at the party, so I don’t know if the lack of privacy will deter him or not…we will see!!! If not, at least I know it’ll be sometime before June!!!
@PinkBubbleGum: Even though I can’t wait until he’s down on one knee, I’m very glad that I don’t know any of the details. All I know is that he knows my ring size. Other than that, I’m totally clueless and really wouldn’t want it any other way even though it’s so hard to not want to know every little detail.
