I was so curious how this would go all night… anxiously awaiting your update OP!

 

And I think it’s cute that you’re “proposing to him to propose.”  I’ve read your posts before and I remember he thought he was going to propose after your graduation or something?  But said you looked tired.  He sounds so nervous, so maybe this will just take the pressure off a bit!

 

It’s not my style, but I don’t think it’s a bad idea either 🙂

@mockblock:  + 1,000. If he wanted to do it, he would. Who wants to marry someone who nags and tries to force them into a life long commitment? I can see why guys run for the hills.

I have to ask– are you 100% POSITIVE he does have a ring..and isn’t just telling you he does to make you feel better? It would be awful for you to go through all this trouble just to have him say “Oh oops, I don’t really have a ring to propose to you with”. Sorry, I just had to ask! But regardless, good luck and let us know how it goes!!

I think some guys genuinely are afraid as fk to propose.  He may be one of them – for a multitude of reasons.  One of my besties proposed to her guy because he had gone through a terrible divorce and was afraid to propose again.  He said yes!  They married last year and are very happy!

Who cares how at happens, as long as both people in the relationship WANT it to happen!

I love this idea!! I cannot wait to hear what happened!

To everyone who thinks it is wrong or strange, the fact that he will still be proposing and he said he wouldnt mind a proposal means something…. its all situational and this one is awesome and totally appropriate!

I’m with many other PPs on this. While I’m not a Waiting Bee, I do understand what you are going through having to wait. But this is just kind of odd. I’m totally all for girls proposing to their SO. But from what understand, you’re not proposing. You’re asking him to propose to you on a certain night, which is saying “I’m ready for you to propose to me now”. But, he already knows that. I just feel like in this situation, he would have proposed if he was ready to already. He already knows you want him to propose so I don’t understand exactly what the purpose of your special night is? I’m confused, I guess. But I do sincerely hope you get what you want and I wish you the best o luck!

Lord love a duck; he’s right. It is 2013! You go get ’em! When my Fiance and I got engaged, it was a two-way-street too. People give you some funny looks because we went about it differently, but at the end of the day, we did it how we wanted to. And we’re happy about it; our engagement reflects us. Who cares about the wet blankets?

@AdriannaJean:  i dont think the issue here with some of the pps is that shes proposing to him. thats pretty much a common thing nowadays. its moreso how shes going about it. proposing when he should propose? it all just screams pushy and desperate to me. telling him ideas on how to ask was bad enough.
