I am. I’m fairly certain it will happen on our anniversary in mid-March. Going crazy waiting until then πŸ™‚

treebyariver :  I am with you! I’m getting married this October but I’ve had no official proposal yet, and I don’t have my ring. Sounds crazy right? It’s not completely crazy…we’re having a pop up vow exchange so nobody except for our parents know just yet. 

Although, there was a unofficial proposal if I can call it that? I told my BF that since he technically never proposed, I couldn’t call him my fiance yet. So, in our apartment, he immediately got down on one knee and asked me to marry him (still no ring). I said yes. And then he said, “Good…now don’t ever call me your boyfriend again.” It was too cute! xoxo

I’m not sure it is an any minute now for me, but I am so ready for it, I know things work a little differently in the US, I am a UK bee πŸ™‚ – but I know there will be no picking a ring together or deciding on when to or roughly when to get engaged. I know every element will be a surprise…unless I begin to twig on and suspect it is coming.

We are going on a 2 week trip to the states in September but I don’t think it will be this year, his sibling is due to get married next year and he such a thoughtful person that I feel he may want to wait until they are marries so as not to take any limelight away.

I have given myself a timeline of by the end of next year (hopefully) – this hasnt been discussed with him but if it comes to the end of next year and no proposal then I will have a talk πŸ™‚ I am mid 20’s so happy for now.

Good luck Bee’s

I currently am. He’s been dropping hints left and right, and I’m certain it is going to happen in the next 1-2 months. Although he’s been hinting, he is also still very sneaky and loves big surprises. So even though I know it’s coming, I know I’ll still somehow be thrown off guard.smile

That’s not a UK/US thing though, just personal preference.

zzar45 :  I agree ultimately it is personal preference but it does appear to be that it’s a more popular way of doing things in the US, picking a ring together/ deciding when to be engaged etc. 

I really hope what I said wasn’t taken offence to I wasn’t trying to suggest that either way is better πŸ™‚ it was just a comment based on what I had seen here on the Bee.

vintagegirl13 :  I’m not offended, i’m in the UK and deciding/picking the ring together is not uncommon here at all, which is why I was highlighting that it isn’t a UK/US thing.

Mine isn’t EXACTLY any moment now, as I know he still wants to ask my parents for their blessing first and hasn’t had the time to do it/won’t have the time in the next few weeks because of work. But he has the ring, he has mentioned multiple times that he has a plan all in place (he told my best friends about it and they confirmed that it was a good one, haha), and we both want it to happen soon, so I know it’ll be in the next month or two, perhaps near our anniversary in early August! I’m so eagerly anticipating it now that a month or two feels like FOREVER, but I know that that’s silly and that it’ll fly by. I am enjoying the excitement, though, and savoring the last little bits of our relationship as boyfriend and girlfriend before it happens.

zzar45 :  Oh I know you werent taking offence, I meant in general that I hoped people didn’t think I was discrediting one way or another.

Well I have no idea on the statistics here or in the US, but based on people I know around me/ engagements I know of there wasn’t any joint decision making on the ring but that obviously doesnt mean to say people don’t or shouldn’t πŸ™‚

Any time after Friday 23rd June for me. I have some exams on and asked him not to propose until after that, but any time after is fair game! He already has the ring too so it really could happen as early as next week! So exciting!Β

bluecutie00 :  This is really confusing??? If he got down on one knee and asked you to marry him and you said yes, then you’re engaged…..how is this not a proposal?? And you even have your wedding date set for October, that actually makes you engaged AF. 

Lol maybe I’m just old and fossilized but I wasn’t aware there were degrees of being engaged.

zzar45 :  My DH picked out my ring with our daughters, but couples choosing &/ or designing a ring together is pretty common here (Southwest Ontario, Canada)
