Why can’t otherwise intelligent men understand that you can’t put the toothpaste back in the tube?

Your job is to do nothing.  He knows you want him to propose and he plans on it.

My DH’s goofy toothpaste moment was when we were driving and saw a poster for an upcoming bridal fair.  Out of nowhere, he said:  we should go to that.

Uh, what?  We should go to a what?  For what reason?

To clarify, he and his ex ran an event planning business, so he’s totally comfortable at a bridal fair.

But, the point is, that’s when the toothpaste was squished out of the tube.  I told him exactly that. Fortunately, he understood and the propsal follwed shortly thereafter.

@AllieLaLa:  I think our guys bring it up when they already know its something they want to do.  And yes, they do not realize the anxiety it brings to us.  But perhaps they want some assurance that proposing is something you want. Just like us, I imagine our guys feel a little insecure about it all – especially since it all (mostly) falls on their shoulders. 

 Also, a friend of mine who has been married over ten years, tells me that the ring is a source of pride for her husband.  She wears her e-ring with her wedding ring, and her Darling Husband points to her e-ring at random moments stating “I bought that for you.”  He is proud of it.  I am sure that your guy wants to show you and be proud of that ring he bought you that represents his commitment and love for you.  (Though that source of pride is different for different guys, different couples). 

There is just no way he would bring up engagement if its not something that was already on his mind.  I do really believe he just wants some assurance that you are on board too!
