I think “the signs” can be really different with every guy, depending on their personality.  I had an idea that the ring was already purchased and hiding somewhere in our apartment b/c my (then) boyfriend started getting really paranoid about locking up all of our windows before we left for work in the morning.  He wasn’t usually like that, so that was a big tip off for me.  Also, on the day that he ultimately proposed, he was barely eating anything.  Of course I just thought that he was feeling sick… but really it was the nerves πŸ™‚

HAHA – this totally depends…I’m extremely oblivious when it comes to certain things – and my husband is AWESOME at keeping secrets (which may not be a good thing, lol) – but I had NO signs WHATsoever…

i wish i had seen signs – but nope – completely oblivious!

i also think it depends on the guy. mine didn’t give me any signs. he did things to prepare for the proposal, and he did them right in front of me and i still had no clue. we went camping, and he was researching the perfect place to do it online. he’s kind of geeky, and he’s always researching places before we go, so he’ll tell me random things about places that we’ve never been, he’ll know the best places to go, and he’ll know the locations of the bathrooms. so of course that didn’t tip me off at all. and everything else was just normal, he asked me if i wanted to take a walk. we were camping in a beautiful park, that’s normal.

I wish I knew them also. My guy can hide secrets, sadly, so I’ll know nothing while I’m in limbo.

Check all that apply!

Has your boyfriend been starting conversations about “the future”, i.e. children, finances, jobs, etc.?

Has he talked about marriage specifically?

Is he talking about marriage more frequently, or has he stopped talking about it altogether?

Has he commented on your jewelery, asked for your ring size, or gazed excessively at your left hand?

Has he come up with excuses to take you jewelry shopping or explore your jewelry tastes?

Have his spending habits changed?

Has his behavior changed; has he displayed out of the ordinary nerves, secrecy, romantics, or other behaviors?

Is a significant date, whether holiday, outing, or anniversary, coming up?

Do you feel like you’ve discussed many of your potential marriage concerns and you’ve hit a calm period in your relationship? Sort of like a calm before the storm feeling?

 

Those are the symptoms of MPP (men planning proposals) as Dr. Minutiae know them. πŸ˜€

Oh, a proposal is definitely on the way!

*whispers And not just because I want one to be on the way for you!* πŸ˜›

Seriously though, it does sound like he’s gearing up for a proposal. Best of luck!

LMAO Dr. MINUTIAE: Got it down to a science huh?! you’re adorable!!! I don’t know if M has talked about any of that stuff or not because I cannot stop talking about it lol!! I asked him this morning if he thought I’d stop and he said nope (cause he says it’s all i talk about, which isn’t true) then I said well why’d you ask me to stop if you don’t expect me too, screw this let’s get married tomorrow and have a reception christmas day at home that would be awesome, don’t you think.  he said no, i don’t think that would be awesome… you want a wedding.  then i said it would be awesome because i’d be your wife and that’s all i care about.  and he just grinned…

@carebear: i’ve gone through some strange metamorphosis… i have ALWAYS wanted to be his wife but before i put a lot of emphasis on how i’d be his wife, small intimate romantic candle light, great centerpieces, even greater dress and tablescapes, etc.  now i could care less… i just want to share his last name… although a part of me is sad because my last name will be the same as his and his kids and my son’s will be different πŸ™ (my son has his dad’s last name)… but i think i’ll give my son the option of informally adopting m’s last name if he wants to sometimes… and just using both of his last names… sorry to go off on a tangent but i’ve been thinking of that lately…
