Hey ladies my SO recently told me he put a deposit on a ring and
I think he is planning a christmas proposal in front of his family 🙂
What about you?
When do you think a proposal is coming?
Are you excited, nervous? I tell ya, waiting sure is exhausting.
I have been excited, fustrated, calm, trying to be calm, super excited,happy LOL, well if not anything else ,waiting certainly is entertaining.

SO has been hinting about something on his phone that I’m not allowed to see, He says that I will be able to see his phone in a couple of weeks (my Birthday is tomorrow and then of course Christmas is in 19 days) so I’m anxiously awaiting Christmas! lol

I would love a Christmas proposal, but that will never happen! SO is not one to do what is expected of him, or what others think makes sense. He’ll propose at the most random time, who knows maybe it will be Christmas day… NBA season is back and thats always a big day in our house! 😉

Hi! I don’t know exactly when but I know it’ll be sometime in the next couple months. He keeps saying “I was looking at rings this week” and we’ve half planned the wedding already. Though I told him I wanted to get through the next month of crazy family travel.
I’m very excited, I’ve been excited since I was knocked upside the head by a good friend and recognized that he’s perfect for me. I keep focusing on the ‘next things’. I was on work travel, then Thanksgiving, now is Christmas arrangements. Maybe that can help for you? I really like wrapping presents so I’ve been taking time every day for that. Plus, I’ve been lurking around here and started posting! Not sure if this will help keeping me calm or not though 🙂

IDK exactly when it will be, but yesterday he asked me a couple questions about our future, and said we need to find my real ring size. The way he said it I know it’s coming soon! Squee! Probably not until next year, though. But hey, next year is less than a month away!

I think my proposal’s coming sometime in the next two weeks! Due to my SO’s inability to keep secrets from me, I know he has a ring (somewhere in our apt…eek!). He surprised me with a Christmas trip to Disney that he secretly planned and we leave next week. I’m trying not to get my hopes up but it’s pretty obvious that’s when he’ll ask. I’m really excited but anxious. I’m trying not to let him know that I think it’s coming but it’s so hard to act normal when he talks about our trip. Thank goodness for this waiting board and you lovely bees for keeping me sane all these months!

@Adeshewa: It took us a few months to get our act together, but once we did, things have been flying. I don’t mean too fast, it’s perfect for me and him, but so many changes. I try not to focus on the little stuff, and get the big things out of the way.

I don’t dare tempt fate by voting, lol.

I voted “sometime in the next two years”, even though most of the time i feel like its somewhere between “I have no clue” and “never”.
The short answer is that I have absolutely no clue. And honestly, if it takes another 2 years for him to propose to me I can’t promise I will say ‘yes’ or that his life won’t be a living hell up to that point

I voted for 6 months. As soon as we get jobs we’ll be officially on engagement watch. Hopefully it won’t take us much longer to get them.

I know it will definitely be sometime in the next few weeks, around Christmas or New Years. The ring is hidden in our house and I know it’s before the end of 2011. The question is just whether it’s before Christmas, under the tree at Christmas or after that. I doubt he would do anything in front of my family, that’s completely unlike us and I would imagine it’s somehow private. I’m guessing in my stocking Christmas morning maybe, if I had to take a guess!
