DO NOT GET EXCITED!!!!

Seriously, far better to be happily surprised, even by plans that don’t involve a ring, than disappointed over something that you knew probably wasn’t going to happen anyway. 

I would say he’s probably saved up to take you out to a nice dinner or something, planning on getting flowers etc. From what I’ve heard, guys tend to get almost a little stand-offish when they’re about to propose, because they don’t want to spoil the surprise. So it’s not going to happen. Probably. 

(fingers crossed anyway!)

@LadyBlackheart:  Instead of being excited about a maybe happening maybe not proposal, just be happy that he loves you so much! 🙂 Shift your focus for the time being, and jsut try to calm down. 😀

Take a deep breath, and go in assuming it’s not going to happen.

(I totally think it will though… Good luck!)

@LadyBlackheart:  We had our first anniversary a few weeks ago, and I was absolutely certain that it wouldn’t happen. Like, 99.99% sure it wouldn’t happen. But I still had a tiny bit of hope! But actually, because I didn’t think it would happen, I wasn’t disappointed when it didn’t, and we had a lovely day being together and celebrating our love together. Just focus on that bit, and don’t think about proposals or anything.

Oh my gosh, I know what you mean about being more affectionate and whatnot. It’s so hard not to read more into it! I think part of it is that if you’ve talked about your future and feel secure in your relationship, your guy has all the same warm fuzzies you get but without an outlet like we have here. Try to focus less on a proposal and just keep things going so awesome between the two of you!

He is probably gazing at you because he is remembering how it al started off… after all it’s your 1 year anniversary.

Enjoy your first anniversary celebrations without marring it with the possible disappointment from no getting a proposal.

I hope you enjoy the time together!

@LadyBlackheart:  Pro Tip: next time he looks at you lovingly, jsut assume you have a booger peeping out. 😛
