I have a question for the engaged (or married): What were the subtle hints that your fiance or husband did that made you suspect an engagement would be near? Did he suddently become more responsible and help out around the house more? Was he sweeter, more affectionate, or um… did he want you in the bedroom more (if you know I mean )? Lol. Did he clean himself up more often (get a hair cut, or shave even though he didn’t really need to)?
What were the things he did that you shrugged off as just silly behaviour on his part at the time, but actually ended up becoming something much bigger (engagement)? I’ve read online about ‘signs your b/f is going to propose’, but every man is different.

Every man is different. Nobody in my group of friends had any clue their guy was going to propose when he did. Looking back, we didn’t see any tell tale signs either.

Lol mine was not subtle. First, he became a total cheap-wad… which is 100% NOT how he normally is. Suddenly date night was subway and the park instead of dinner out and a movie. He started ranting about the price of bread… it was kind of hilarious 🙂 But, he knew I didn’t want him to finance a ring and he had a certain type of ring he wanted to buy me…. so he seriously cut costs and saved a ton to buy the ring in 3 mo.

No real “signs” here either – we had previously discussed our timeline, and he proposed within the time frame we decided together would be best for us to get engaged. He got nervous about five minutes before he proposed, but I don’t think that’s the kind of “sign” you’re hoping for. 🙂
How does your boyfriend normally act about surprises, gifts, etc.? His own actions will probably be similar – like emtheartist said, every guy is different!

Well, lately he’s become more responsible (we live together). Usually I have to ask him for help with the dishes, but lately he’s been getting off his arse and doing it himself. I’m home before he is after work, so I make dinner and usually clean up (which I don’t mind. He wakes up at 5:30am and drives an hour to and from work, so I’m happy to do it). But lately he’s been cleaning up on his own without me prompting him.
I dunno, he’s just been acting funny lately. Being sweeter, antsy at night after work (usually he plops himself down on the couch after work and for the rest of the night until bedtime).
Obviously all these things could mean nothing at all. But for the second time in two months, he had a meeting in town and didn’t have to get up as early as he usually does. His place of work is an hour away… Why are they having a meeting in our home town??? Weird.
