I don’t know mine, but I do know that my ring will be delivered April 24, hopefully he won’t make me wait. How do you know yours?

sunflowerqueen:  …OK?

Why and how?  Did he tell you everything?  I didn’t know anything about mine, only that I requested he use my mom’s diamond per her offer.  It’s much better when you don’t see it coming.

sunflowerqueen:  My FI tried to surprise me and I ruined it by wanting to stay home, and then I kind of realized he was going to propose and started crying, it was a mess. But then after we both smiled, laughed, and talked about how much we loved each other, and you know what? It was perfect. I’m just glad I get to marry him. Proposal haven’t always been this grand gesture thing. It’s about two people deciding to spend their lives together. 🙂

Something always goes wrong… Trust me you will be surprised when it comes down to it, you don’t know HOW he’s going to do it! It’s not just about the ring!<br />

sunflowerqueen:  it could still be a surprise. Heck I knew mine had the ring, we picked it out together, picked it up from the store together, he left it on the dresser for over a month, then put it in his drawer (killing me with anticipation, mind you). Every time we went to dinner, on a date, walk in the park, etc, I thought it was going to be “the moment”. Uh..no…he did it so unexpectedly at home. 

You know. Just act like it’s nothing. I’ve heard of men having the ring and not proposing for months and months. Hang in there. This is HIS PART of the wedding he gets to plan without you. Let him have this. Be happy with every moment with him and live life like normal.

sunflowerqueen:  don’t even worry, you’ll still be surprised when it happens! something similar happened to me… FI and I share a dropbox account and he asked me to log in to look at something (can’t even remember what now) and I accidently saw a photo of the ring, which was supposed to be a surprise. He also gave me waaaay too many hints about when he was planning to propose so I kind of figured it out on my own. However, when it came down to the moment, even though I knew his plan, it was still lovely and I was somewhat surprised just because I was so caught up in the hike we were on. Keep us updated!

I began finding hints around the house that my bf was about to propose about a month before he actually did. I actually had a sneaking suspicion that he was going to propose on the day that he did, but I never said anything to him. In the end, it didn’t matter how long I’d known it was coming. I was still surprised in the moment, and the proposal wasnt any less romantic just because I knew it might be happening.

I could tell something was up weeks before my FI proposed and, the day he did it, I 99.9% knew it was going to happen. I can read him like a book for first graders.  But when he got down on one knee and pulled out the ring, I still felt shocked and surprised.  I even asked “Are you serious?” about 10 times before saying yes.  I know what you mean about feeling bad that you figured out yet another surprise, but don’t worry.  My FI didn’t care at all when I admitted later that I knew it was coming.  We were both just so excited to be engaged!
