No proposal!…I knew not to get my hopes up but it was soooo hard not too….but i held it together the whole trip and had a great time. Now that im home its all sinking in it would have been the perfect place to get engaged at, #depressed….and i have a million friends calling me asking if “anything happened” on my trip….ugh…back to reality

That sucks!!! 🙁 I know how it feels to go on vacation thinking it “might” happen, but it doesn’t. Last year my (then) boyfriend and I planned a vacation to China and I told him to not propose to me there because I worried that my ring would be stolen. He told ok, and that he HAD thought about proposing there. Then I was like, “f-ck.” I changed my mind super fast after he said that and the entire time we were in China (10 days) I kept looking over my shoulder hoping that he was getting down on one knee. It would have been perfect at the Great Wall and I even asked him then, “Did you bring anything cute and special and sparkly?” But he reminded me that I’d told him not to. I was so dumb!!!! But he ended up doing it on vacation to Niagara Falls. Loved it!
Don’t get too down. Eventually it will happen. Try to be patient. I know that’s the hardest thing to do and hear. Patience… patience.

Ugh, that sucks! I’m sorry, I know how disappointing that would be. It doesn’t help when everyone else in your life was expecting you to come back engaged. At least you were able to hold it together and enjoy your vacation!
I’m terrified of this happening to me. I don’t think I’d be able to hide my disappointment and it would ruin a lot of things. I’m 100% sure (most days) that I have 13 days until my SO proposes. There are just too many clues/hints/signs that are indicative of the impending proposal. However, I have off days where I start worrying that I’m completely wrong and he’s not going to propose.
I don’t have much advice other than to remember why you love him and positive things about your relationship. Waiting can be really difficult and frustrating especially when you expect it to happen and it doesn’t. *Hugs*

Aw that really does suck! I know me and my SO have been going to really nice places, like places he doesn’t normally take me and they are all suprise weekend trips and I’m always like OMG he’s going to do it and then he doesn’t. It just SUCKS! ..HUGS!!
The worst was we went to a couples weekend getaway and 3 people who were in our group of couples that we met got engaged in the same weekend and when I came home the FIRST Thing my mom said to me was ” ARE YOU ENGAGED” and when I told her no she said ” Ohh well I read online that is the place that most couples get engaged” Thanks MOM!

I know that kind of disappointment! I’m the type of person where my emotions just SIT on my face, so I can’t hide them very well!
I’m really sorry it didn’t happen this time, but I’ll keep you in my thoughts. Hopefully it will happen for you soon!

I’m sorry to hear it. I know how it feels. I’m going on a mini-vacation (long weekend) tomorrow until Sunday. I am 99% sure my SO *won’t* be proposing, but there’s always that little bit of hope that he’s got some surprise planned that he managed to hide from me! When I get home on Sunday, I’m sure I’ll update everyone that I am still ring-free as well 🙁

I’m sorry, I know how it feels 🙁 I have a trip this weekend and another next month – both would be great for a proposal but I don’t think it will happen at either. Just going to try my best to put it out of my mind. I think in the future us waiting bees should set up something nice like a spa day for AFTER our trips…that way if we start to feel down we can pamper ourselves a little and maybe get our minds off what didn’t happen.

ooo a spa day is a great idea, gives us something to look forward too! I told my SO you know i had 5 people ask me if i got a ring on our vacation and he laughed and said why would they have that idea!….ummm what a jerk idk maybe the fact that weve been together almost 3 yrs, you call me your wife, weve looked at rings 3 times, and i remember him telling me on new years that his resolution was to make an honest women out of me…hmmmm….I think im setting a ultimatium in my head he has till i graduate nursing school to propose or im moving on with my life and my new career! Which is June 2013…im 31 yrs old i dont have much more time to keep waiting.
