I just thought this would be fun to hear what all the bee’s think about this topic. My SO and I have been together for 5 years on Valentine’s Day 2015 (cliche I know) and even though I’m ready I know I won’t be getting a proposal anytime soon. I know SO has a dream of having all his ducks in a perfect little row first and his savings account is growing towards buying a home before a ring which I’m fine with waiting, I love him so much.
If you could take a stab at the year, month or day (depending on where you are in the waiting process) what would your guess be as to when your SO will propose?
I’ll go first!
My guess would be because I know how my sweeties thinking goes. He has a hard time doing “romantic” but he goes all out with it on dates like Valentines Day, my birthday and holidays and completely makes up for it (hence why he asked me to be his girlfriend on Valentine’s Day 2010) . He and I both know that he couldn’t plan a random romantic evening of any kind (if he wanted to propose on a random day that had no other significance) without me knowing something was up. My guess is that he will propose on Valentine’s Day. Definitely not this coming one as he is still hurding in those pesky little ducks of his. The hopeful side of me would say that it could happen on Valentine’s Day of 2016 but the more likely date I’m guessing could be Valentine’s Day of 2017 for our 7th anniversary. 2/14/17 I will be 26 a month away from 27 and he will be 29. Still keeping my fingers crossed for 2/14/16 though!!
I know we can’t be mind readers and know these kinds of things…but I think it’s a fun thing to think about! Might be fun to look back on too and see how close (or how completely off) we all really are!
Also…this is my very first post and I’m strangely excited about it!!

I hope he does it sooner than you think!
I think my boyfried will propose on either Christmas day 2014 or 12th Jan 2015 as that is out first date anniversary and plus I know he has the ring (found the receipt!) but he could wait longer as he has told me that he wants to surprise me with the proposal as I already know what ring he has brought as we chose it together.

mrs.akjp: hehe this is kind of fun!
SO is still playing with his little ducks, too lol. He told me if he gets his xmas bonus then we would most likely buy a ring! BUT he technically isnt eligible for a xmas bonus until after he has been with the company 1 year and it will only be 9 months!! So they *could* but probbaly wont!
So if no xmas proposal – i would say 2016 or 2017 in may on our anniversary. I have a feeling he would do it a few days before on like a random tuesday so i wouldnt suspect anything haha. I would imagine at disneyland. We are season pass holders and its a special place for us 🙂

mrs.akjp: Well.. my ring is in the works now and will probably be completed sometime in January. If i had to guess I could only give a range. His bday is in Feb and mine in March, he will be 30 so it’s a big deal and I think we’ll be on a trip then. My guess: Feb after the 4th to March before the 6th. If not that range then definitely before May. Summation: No idea when it’ll happen 😉

oh i like this!!!!!
My SO has been talking about me being his ‘lil fiance’ for quite some time, he had money for the rings i tried on [w/out him] and he kept the card and the name of the ring and size etc, then unfortunately his Mother took it all away from him because she cant even support herself, so he told me the truth and was sooo disheartened by it 🙁 hes saving again now and hes likes to joke with the idea of proposing at a baseball game [ we both love sports] cuz it would be a on a big screen and embarass the shit outta me [ dont like the center of attention thing lol] I told him i would prefer something a bit more private and intimate…and we dont even know when we officially starting dating so lol..so im hoping hes going to propose this upcoming september [ cuz thats around-ish when we started dating i think] and my birthdays sept 27 so that would be a lovely bday gift! 😀

@Amerie27: I completely understand what you mean! I am sooo not a fan of being the center of attention. I hope that when the time does come he makes it a private thing. He also doesn’t like being the center of attention so that makes me feel a little better….the thing I worry about is family. I feel like he would enjoy doing it in front of family and I almost find that worse than something at a baseball game for some reason.
My plan is to mention no family nonchalantly sometime just so that he knows where I stand on that!

mrs.akjp: we have been dating longer than you… By about a week! I have ABSOLUTELY no clue when we are going to get engaged, other than it will be sometime in 2015. He has hinted “springtime,” but there is a lot that covers… Plus, spring could also entirely be a ruse. I know he hasn’t got the ring yet (we’ve tried on a bunch in person together) because he wants to see it in person before plunking down his money, and the nearest jewellery stores are at least a 1.5 hour drive away, if not a 2.5 hour drive (for the better quality/independent, custom stores). I’m very much looking forward to it – because I love good surprises, and I know he is going to have to work very hard to keep this one a surprise!

mrs.akjp: lol jus nonchalantly, no hunny
i would be the same way though, i would like it just to be the two of us!
My sister and her H, they were in Rome and they did a small hike to a really beautiful view and when she turned around he was kneeling already crying lol, so cute! I was in australia but i got the phone call at 3am! 🙂

I’m not sure of an exact date. My SO is doing the whole ducks thing as well. If I had to guess, I would have to say possibly sometime in 2015. I’m trying not to get my hopes up, but it’s hard thinking that every little trip we go on will end in a proposal. I don’t think he has a ring yet, but we have gone to try on rings and he knows what I like. So, the wait continues! Good luck to all 🙂

As soon as possible would be awesome 🙂
but in all seriousness, he asked me what I wanted for Christmas and I showed him an engagement ring that I was in love with and he asked me “what size?” i don’t think that’s enough time for a ring but here’s to wishful thinking!

mrs.akjp: lol i love the pesky ducks!
I’m going completely random here but his horoscopes said 14th December 2014. Lol here’s to wishful thinking! And its been promised before 2015 so you never know. I will read horoscopes every day for the rest of my life if he does lol.

My boyfriend has been saying “the beginning of next year” – our 5 year anniversary is January 31st, so that would be my guess if he were going for a specific date.
I should really quit guessing though. It’s driving me nuts.

I don’t really know, as we’ve basically just started dating,but from the talks we’ve had so far, it might be next year,either for my birthday in august, or our anniversary in September. I know this is it for me,so it’s gonna be when he wants to do it, but..I’d really prefer for it to be sooner rather than later lol.Given my age and the fact that we want children,I’d love to be married in 2016.

Well, we will be together for 8.5 years — tomorrow!! BUT I know that it isn’t coming anytime soon. (I am actually having a timeline talk with him tonight). I am HOPING for a 2015 engagement so that we can get married in 2016 (which would be our 10 year anniversary). We shall see though….
