So over the holidays my sister got engaged as well as my SO’s brother.
My SO’s mother took my aside and we had a heart to heart for an hour. She wanted to make sure I didnt feel discouraged and that my time will come soon. I played it off like I was not discouraged and told her again that we were interested in a house on the market and the closing date is in March 2016 and that I will not move in with her son unless we are engaged or married. My SO’s mother agreed with me and told me to tell him this. I told her I had been telling him this for over a year and a half now and I vowed to myself not to bring our engagement up anymore.
The next morning my SO’s mother pulled me aside and said my SO’s father will be talking to my SO to encourage him to propose on valentines day. We’ve been together for over 4 years. I’m hopeful it will happen but it’s anybody’s guess. Come March 2016, if we aren’t engaged, I guess I will be moving in to the house by myself. I hope this doesn’t happen.
Anyone else hoping for a Valentines Day engagement?

It’s cool that SO’s parents are on your side. I hope your proposal comes soon. What have been his thoughts on marriage thus far?
Back in October, my SO said that he would be proposing to me within 3-4 months. Well, four months is up on V-Day, so while I’m not necessarily hoping for a V-Day proposal, it might happen… He does have the ring, and that knowledge is making me waaaaaaaay too amxious.

A Valentine’s Day proposal would be nice, but not in the cards for me (I don’t think). BF, I, and the rest of his family are all taking a huge trip out to New Orleans in April (so I can meet the cousins/extended family), and I’m thinking it’ll probably happen then. Then again, he says he’s going to do his best to make sure it’s a total surprise, so who knows, lol.
So great that his folks are on your side! I just hope he doesn’t feel too ganged up on, lol. But from the sound of it, it’s coming up!

Soooo not happening for me. My SO has always been anti-V-Day. We always go out to dinner, and reservations have already been made, but he doesn’t see the point of professing love on only one day of the year. He calls it a “made-up holiday” lol. Your chances sound much better though, and it’s great that you are so close with his family. It would be interesting to know how he feels about marriage like Owl said.

I’m hoping to be engaged by the end of this month (my SO is planning a little getaway), so if that doesn’t happen I think I’ll be dropping some serious VDay hints lol 😜

That’s very sweet that his parents are looking out for you. You’re buying a house together. Hopefully, your guy is smart enough to propose in a timely fashion without his parents pushing him.

Yes! I am very fortunate to have my SO’s parents on my side. My SO has said many times that he would like to marry me and that before me, he thought he would never get married. Your SO already has the ring? That would be very nerve exciting and racking! How do you know he has it already? 🙂
This huge trip sounds as though it might be the perfect time to pop the question! It’s nice that he is trying to make it a huge surprise for you!! I’m hoping my SO doesnt feel too ganged up on either. He doesn’t know I was speaking to his mom about our engagement so I’m hoping he will be comfortable with having an honest conversation with his parents. We will see :).
How surprising would it be if your SO proposed on V-day? It’s nice that you still go out for dinner but I can see why he would label the day as a “made-up holiday”. Is he an all around romantic? How long have you been together?
Oou! Your chances sound good! I’m excited for you!! A litle getaway would be a perfect time for a proposal! 🙂 Good luck!!
Yes, I’m very thankful for his parents! I’m crossing my fingers that he does it on his own too without being pushed by his parents!

My girlfriend wants our date to just be our date. I’d love a v-day proposal but she is the type to not want to do it when everyone else is doing it. lol oh well

I might be! My boyfriend and I currently live in different states. Although we spent the holidays together, and will be together for the next week, the timing wasn’t quite right since he was in the middle of buying a house and we both agreed that he should wait until after closing before purchasing a ring. He has since officially closed on the house, but I now have a major cold and feel like crap, so I don’t think it will be happening this week. Since Valentine’s Day happens to be a long weekend, that will be the next time we see each other so I am thinking it might happen then!
I think a February proposal is looking good for you! So exciting!

My SO and I have a trip booked the weekend before Valentines day as we have his children over the Valentines day weekend.
I’m not expecting a proposal and he has already told me it won’t happen then however there always is that slight hope that it will happen! That is half the fun of waiting though!

i hope mine comes a lot sooner! No way that I am patient enough to wait till mid February! We’ve been together 6years and both families are pushing for it. He bought the ring Christmas Day from a relative who has a jewlery business. I got to try rings on and chose two that I liked. He made the final choice and it’s now sitting in the dresser. He knows how impatient I am, and it’s not like it would be a total surprise so I’m waiting for it to (hopefully) be any day!

Your future in laws are so cute! And it’s lovely that they must really want you in the family (as long as they aren’t *too* pushy with him haha) <3
Not hoping for a Valentine’s proposal myself – bf is very against holiday proposals, I was more expecting him to not have an opinion on something like that at all.
I think they’re lovely though and I’m sure it’ll be amazing if you do get one! 🙂
