Weekday proposal here.  I wish it had been the weekend, so I wouldn’t have been stressed about work the next day…DH proposed the night before parent-teacher conferences!

He proposed on a Wednesday…We moved into our first apartment together (our first place we picked together, he had moved into prior). It was fun calling everyone to tell them because they were all at home, just making dinner and stuff.

I have specifically told my DP that her proposal needs to be during the weekend so we have time to enjoy ourselves 🙂

I’ll take a proposal any day of the week, Monday through Sunday!

Mine was a Thursday night, but it was sort of the weekend for me because I had classes Monday-Thursday.

Beggars can’t be choosers, but I would greatly prefer the weekend so I could have time to enjoy it and not worry about what I had to get done the next day.  I’m a studenthave usually have homework and reading and a proposal doesn’t really fit in to that!

I don’t think it makes a difference. If the man is going to propose, he’s going to do it when he feels ready/most comfortable, won’t he?

What if it’s a Monday night? Are you going to say no, just because you have a week ahead?

The important point here is getting engaged, right? Whether he (or you) does it on a weekday or weekend is not.

Mine was a Thursday night.  Because of how crazy busy our summer had been, in part because my job has me away for a week+ at a time most of the summer, that worked out the best for his planning.  I was super suprised, it was awesome, we got to celebrate plenty that night and who cares about having to go to work the next day – I was engaged! 😀

I honestly don’t remember if he proposed on a weekend or a weeknight. If I had to guess, I think it was a weeknight because he proposed right before we drove up to visit family for Christmas.

NO CARE WHATSOEVER! Just as long as he proposes.

My DH proposed on a Monday. Now, we were on a mini-vaca and had a few days after and including Monday off so it’s basically like a weekend. I remember when I was waiting I wanted a weekend but honestly, in the moment, you really don’t give a shit or notice what day it is. 🙂

@starryeye:  My fiance proposed on a weekday, but he also knew that I was super impatient about it. 😉
