Okay bees, SO and I have had many discussions about getting married, and we decided to do it August 2016. Which is great, however, this last week SO has said he would like to get married end of this year beginning of next year! Which is great also.
I have also told SO until I have the ring on my finger I am not prepared to start planning and paying deposits etc.
Now normally on special occasions I get my hopes up for the proposal, and it’s his birthday this week so I know it won’t happen then.
Just curious if any bees actually got engaged on their SO’s birthday, it seems that many get engaged on their own birthdays, but proposals on SO’s birthday doesn’t seem a ‘common’ thing!

Actually, Fi proposed to me on his birthday. He had his best friend contact me under the guise to help get SO to a specific restaurant/lounge for a surprise party that was actually a surprise engagement party.
When the day came, the NY area had a huge blizzard, so FI took me to a special place in the local mountains early in the morning (I looked so bad lol) and proposed to me there with snow falling around us.
It turned out beautifully and extra surprising since it was all about getting ME to the restaurant and then dragging me out of bed to go to the mountain on a cold winter morning lol. The only reason I actually agreed to go in that weather was because it was his birthday haha.

Nouna_: LOL! Oh, sounds perfect 😀 I’ve only ever heard of another story before yours on proposals on their birthday.
I’m not expecting it as he’s having a hard time with the fact he’s turning 30! Can’t help but giggle, but won’t be laughing when it’s me that’s for sure LOL!

I got engaged on my FI birthday on March 15. We were on a partybus going to party in NYC with all of our close family and friends. Best day so far. Good luck with everything!

thefuturemrswindowcleaner: a friend of mine just got engaged on her SO’a bday bc they planned a weekend beach trip and that’s when he wanted to do it. She LOVED it!! She knew a proposal was coming but wasn’t thinking it’d be that weekend, turns out it was 🙂

What a fabulous way to catch someone off guard! Plus it’s their day but they are making it about the two of you, very cute.

I got engaged right after we celebrated his birthday with dinner. That evening was our only time alone before my family was showing up the next day… So he went for it so we could share the good news with everyone when we saw them.

My son and his wife got engaged on his birthday, and I thought it was sweet. She didn’t do the “ring on my finger” threat though. I think she just loved my son and wasn’t thinking that extortion was very romantic.

ann.reid.9277: Um, it’s not exactly ‘extortion’ to want an official engagement before putting down money on deposits. I’d say it’s sensible and practical!

thefuturemrswindowcleaner: My friend just got engaged two days ago for HIS birthday. He said the only thing he wanted for his bday was for her to be his wife. It was adorable.

thefuturemrswindowcleaner: I got engaged on HIS birthday. His 30th to be exact. We were at our cabin preparing for a party I was throwing for him, waiting for friends and family to arrive when he surprised me and popped the question.
I was so consumed with hosting and celebrating him, I never saw it coming. Needless to say, we had a lot to celebrate!
