Today is my birthday and I know you should never “expect” anything but I guess I am one of those girls who is always “expecting” a proposal on a special occassion! All of my friends/family and his family keep sending me messages saying could this be the day! They are actually making my nerves worse! I need some advice on how to calm my nerves–like asap! (Normally I would drink a glass of wine but I am at work and that wouldn’t be a good idea)

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!! I say to relax and enjoy yourself. My birthday was nearly two months ago and I had the same jitters and I busied myself with a billion projects (and posting on here going could this be it?!) lol!!!! Relax, Relate, Release in the words of Whitley Gilbert!

Happy Birthday!! Try not to think of wedding stuff today. Focus on your birthday and celebrating it, aside from the engagement. I kept myself distracted by “window” shopping online. planning a birthday party, goofing off on facebook, and just making the day about me (and not us). Boy, that was a good day.

Happy Birthday! If I were you, I’d just figure your guy will try to throw you off and won’t propose on the obvious choice 🙂

When my now-fiance and I went to Costa Rica (as boyfriend/girlfriend) I was told by EVERYONE that it was going to be then. We had found a hotel that had a perfect view of the sunset and it would be the perfect time on our empty beach. After a few glasses of wine I realized that he was not planning on proposing and I broke into tears (I blame this on the wine!). I felt so bad for crying but I had put so much hope into this “perfect” proposal that I felt like I was hit by a truck.
I’m telling you this because I don’t want it to happen to you. Have a great birthday and celebrate it with the people who love you (including your super amazing boyfriend) if you are surprised it’ll be great, and if theres no ring – have just as great of a time. You don’t want today to be “the day” because you’d know about it. So find some dark chocolate and have fun today!
Good luck & let us know if he does ask!

Honestly, I hope that he does propose. But focus on your birthday. This may be the day he does, and this may be the day that you’re the girl on the beach bursting into tears. This is your day to have fun and enjoy your birthday. Freaking out about this “possibly” being the day will waste this day all together. If it is THE day, then it will just make it ALL the more better.

Happy Birthday! I agree with jellybean, try to focus on your birthday! Go get a cupcake at lunch or something like that! haha- chocolate always helps! But you don’t want to be disappointed on your birthday, so i know that it is impossible not to think about, but just try focusing on the things that you do have control over. Do you have plans for tonight? If you don’t maybe plan a happy hour after work or something. I hope he proposes today, but if he doesn’t, he probably just wants to make your e-day special and doesn’t want it to take over your birthday!

Happy Birthday! What a great day today is!!! Make it all about you! lovesthebear is absolutely right in that today is about YOU! It’s so great when people pamper you b/c you get your one day a year. If it happens to be the day of your engagement, then it will be…but in the meantime, just act as if it’s just another fabulous birthday all about you!

Happy Birthday! Relax and don’t expect a proposal- that way you won’t totally get your hopes up, and still can enjoy the day. Plus, if he does, it’ll be a major bonus. :p
