I need to vent, and this is the only place I can! My sister and best friend are jealous that I am waiting and they are not, and are not nice when I talk abt a pending engagement, so here I am! Here are my hints, what do you think? I am trying not to get excited, but it’s so much fun to think about!
My SO has been planning a surprise destination vacation for early October for months now. This past weekend he made a scavenger hunt of clues to tell me the destination- New Mexico Hot Air Balloon Fiesta! We have been together almost 4 years and I know that an engagement is coming (by the end of 2013 he says).
He recently transferred $10,000 out of savings into his checking, telling me it was to pay off the Last of his student loans.
He is going to his parents house alone this weekend while I attend a baby shower w my mom. They live far away, and he hasn’t visited them alone in years!
Today our balloon ride tickets arrived in the mail, I called to tell him and he said ‘the surprises just keep coming’.
Two weeks ago I accidentally saw he was looking at rings on his iPhone.
Why I don’t think it’ll happen on vacation: I don’t think he’ll have a ring that fast if he was still looking two weeks ago, $ the trip is expensive and we just bought a house, he isn’t acting stressed at all, he hasn’t told ANYONE he plans to propose (his family wld tell me), he still tells me by the end of 2013.
What do you all think? Is it coming on our trip? Or should I talk myself oft of thinking about it? I so badly want to be excited!

It may not be happening on your trip, but it could! October is still a couple weeks away. If not, it sounds like it’s coming soon.

I think it might happen!! but try not to think about it and just enjoy your trip.. your story sounds similar to mine, we were together for 2,5 years, he planned an amazing trip to mauritius and we just bought a house..so like you i wanted to be excited, but when we actually went on our holiday i just relaxed and enjoyed the whole thing..and it did happen!! he took me completely by surprise on that day though! he didn’t even shave, so i thought it is definitely not happening tonight.. and it did! he didn’t have a ring, he gave me a local tree bark ring from the hotel gift shop which was really sweet and i couldnt care less! we chose my ring together once we returned..hope it happens for you on your holiday! keep us posted!!

It does sound like he’s planning to propose. But don’t get too excited (even though Im new to post I’ve been read this board for months) many waiting bees have been devastated when they come home from a romantic vacation with out a ring. Remember that he took sooooooo much time and effort into this trip- be appreciative of what he is actualy doing vs what you want/think he is doing. He sounds lovely! And I do very much hope this is your magic moment! Remember to enjoy that special trip!

As positive and as exciting as it is, dont get TOO excited! This happened to me and I was convinced it was happening in July.. and it didnt, all of the signs were coincidences!! I was crushed!! Although it is so nice to be hopeful and excited, dont put yourself in the position for heartbreak here.. theres soooo many good signs here but he did say by the end of 2013… try to focus on that to keep things in perspective.
That said, I am so hoping it happens for you on vacay!! It would be beautiful 🙂 good luck!

I am so happy for you! A vacation and pending engagement! If your friend and sister just brings you negativity, just let it go and focus on your relationship, their time will come too.
I do not think and I don’t know if there will be a proposal when you guys go on vacation, but I think it’s really sweet that he is already looking at e-rings and mentioning “surprises”, but I really hope that you will enjoy your time off with your SO and don’t be sad if he doesn’t propose, be happy that he took you on that trip 😉

I hope so! But I read of so many ladies who have so many vacation signs and it doesn’t happen. I’m trying to takeeveryone’s advice and not get too excited, but I know I’ll be crushed if it doesn’t happen! Who takes a girl on a hot air balloon ride, mentions surprises and doesn’t propose!?
Has anyone experienced a vacation letdown? I don’t want him to see me disappointed if it doesn’t happen bc I know he spent so much timeand effort on the trip and I really am appreciative. How did you ladies handle it?
