That’s great news! Does he want to propose in front of the parents cause it’s something he wants or because he thinks that it’s something YOU want? If he thinks that is something you want and that isn’t exactly the case, I see nothing wrong with finding out and slipping that in at some point. Don’t get me wrong, we shouldn’t dictate our proposals. But at the end of the day he wants to do right by you, so, I see nothing wrong with helping him if that’s the case. ๐Ÿ™‚ 

Here’s to hoping it happens WAY before summer hits. Like….now…or now….what about now? ๐Ÿ™‚

@Reign14:Lol, I’m the same! I had a 6-8 month period of being fuming, then we got the ring and now I’m quite content to wait a few years! I’m sure I’ll get back to raging fury in a wee bit ๐Ÿ˜›

@Reign14: But I don’t really know what I want, so I figure I’ll just leave it up to him. If he wants family to share the moment, so be it. I have no idea how i’ll feel or react in any situation :/


You posted this in my thread and I thought I’d comment on it in yours. ๐Ÿ™‚ In that case I totally see why you wouldn’t bring it up. I only really brought up the fact that I didn’t want friends and family there because I know me, I know how distracted I get by people I know and I would be worrying about what they thought, how they felt, if we were being too intimate or not intimate enough, and I certainly didn’t want to be hit with performance anxiety mid-proposal. Based on my personality, I knew 100% that I didn’t want them there and that I wouldn’t enjoy myself as much as I could if they were there.

If you aren’t sure where you stand, I could see not saying anything. Who knows, you may be surprised and you love it! I also think it’s healthy that you’re ok with waiting to. Getting engaged is a huge step and not something to be approached blindly. If it doesn’t feel right at this exact moment, it doesn’t feel right. It’s really mature of you to recognize that and not force it anyways.

That’s great news! And before the summer gives him plenty of time to still make it a surprise. At least you both know where you stand in the relationship and where it’s headed. And yeah trying not to think about it is hard. My Boyfriend or Best Friend told me it’d be this year and sometimes I wish he hadn’t because now I’m always on semi- pending engagement alert even if I don’t mean to be. Try to enjoy every day as it comes though.
