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! 😀

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!

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!

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.
