I don’t know how or exactly when he will do it, but we’ve kind of agreed that it will be on my birthday (5th December!)
there are three reasons for this: firstly, i LOVE december and the whole christmas season and told him years ago that my dream proposal would be surrounded by fairy lights and christmas trees and with festive music in the background… secondly, my birthday is my absolute FAVOURITE day of the year… thirdly, December is an expensive month and to split my birthday, Christmas AND an engagement over three separate days in that month would bankrupt him haha!
is it bad that I know the day? Is it going to take the magic out of the moment, or will it make it all the more exciting? I do love surprises and there would still be a lot of surprise involved because I don’t know how or exactly when, but this is just the perfect day for it…
what do you bees thnk?

i know some people don’t like knowing, but i think it would be amazing.
think about it – you know to get a manicure the day before, pick out an amazing outift, get your hair done, have your phone/camera charged.
you could ALSO make plans with friends for the day after on ‘birthday’ pretenses and arrive rockin’ that ring!
all that AND presents on the same day?! amazing.

@GreatGatsby90: Hey we have the same birthday! 🙂
Anyway, I can absolutely relate to what you are feeling. I “know” mine is coming in the next 3 weeks, and can narrow it down due to which days we mutually have off work, so I’m positive I will know by the time the day rolls around that today/tomorrow etc. is THE day.
Like others said, it’s cool in a way because you will both be anticipating this awesome event together, and you can be prepared (my nightmare is being proposed to when I am not ready for pictures, etc.)

First thing I thought: OMG HOW DO YOU KNOWW!!!!!?? This is so exciting. Does it make you more nervous knowing when it’s coming? I think it’s up to him.. I know my SO would DIE if I knew exactly what day. I told him I had an inkling when and he wanted to know whatmy guess was…but I refused because I said, then YOU’LL change your plan if I’m right!!! (I’m a Dec. girl too! 🙂 )

@GreatGatsby90: Nope not yet, boyfriend hinted that we might be going out of town I will just pack a nice dess or some of my nicer outfits just in case!
You must be so excited. Since it’s going to be your birthday, if you are planning on getting together with friends you have a built in mini engagment party of sorts!
I know this waiting part is hard but just try and relax this just think – these are the last few months you’ll ever be anyone’s girlfriend again! Enjoy this time and congratulations!
