awww! poor you, that’s funny and sad at the same time. I think I would do something similar! 😛 and ruin my own proposal. I always ask him where we are going and why whenever we go out. I just need to let him do his thing 🙂 At least you’re married now! 🙂

mggBoyles:  I guess I’m a little confused as to why him buying a ring meant that he had to start acting differently and stop eating lunch with you. I know that’s not the point of the post, but it bothers me. I feel like he brought “your crazy” on himself lol

IzzyBear:  lol he definitely brought it on himself but the poor guy was probably A. nervous and B. trying not to give anything away.

I didn’t ruin my proposal, per se, but I feel like an idiot looking back because I had my one and only waiting meltdown exactly 1 week before he proposed, so I get it. 

He was already planning it, but pretended he hadn’t even looked at rings yet to throw me off. He managed to calm me down without blurting out the news…

i wouldn’t say i ruined it. but I knew the proposal date 2 weeks before the actualy proposal.  Darling Husband was tired of me keep asking him when. 

We agreed we were getting married and when, but he wanted to “propose” before we officially planned anything. I told him I wouldn’t book vendors until I had a ring. Turns out, I still had to wait another 3 weeks for the ring.  The week before he asked if I was ok with a proposal without a ring of which I was completely ok.

mggBoyles:  gotcha. It cracks me up when people act all funny about things because they’re afraid to give away something. It’s like, dude if you just acted normal I wouldn’t have noticed anything. Haha.

I have a friend with a pretty similar story.   Her then SO bought the ring and hid it in an old video game collector’s edition box (big enough to easily hide the ring box in.)  She hadn’t paid attention to it for MONTHS and then ended up picking it up while cleaning with him in the room.  He was freaked she was going to find it.  She didn’t (kind of oblivious to the idea) but she did pick up on him being nervous/afraid.  He moved the ring to another location she didn’t look in, and similar happened a week later. 

They ended up having a fight because he wouldn’t tell her what was wrong, and both took the day off work to cool down.  He ended up purposing that day (still his cute, original idea) and they both laughed at the reason for the fight after the purposal. 

Even my Darling Husband got realy weird the night of our purposal.  Plans started changing the day before and I was suspcious, and then he told me to go down to the car prior to him, which is unusual (as he was retrieving the ring)   It has to be hard to have really great news for your best friend (which my Darling Husband was by the time we got engaged), and trying not to spoil the surprise.  It might just be easier to withdraw a bit trying not to spoil the surprise.

mggBoyles:  My friend was with his girlfriend on a vacation in California. He was going to propose to her on top of some great overlook with the Pacific Ocean below. On the drive up all she did was complain…why are we driving to the middle of no where…I hate this music, why do we always listen to your music. She is doing her best to pick a fight with him. 

She is very lucky he was madly in love with her. Because he still proposed, LOL, and she felt sooooo bad!!
