@peonyinlove:  AHHH!!! This is so exciting!! It definitely sounds like you’ll have some brand new jewelry by Christmas πŸ˜‰

My SO has never asked me but I have told him that I’ll be disappointed if he just hands me the box/puts no thought into the proposal or asks me when I’ve just woken up and look gross with unwashed hair and bad breath! I also told him that I want him to bend down when he asks me but other than that he has free rein to do whatever. (Geez, I sound demanding!)

I know he would never ask me in a public way (like on a jumbotron at a game or something) so I’m assuming it’ll be a private proposal.

@peonyinlove:  Will you see each other at all during the long distance period?

I bet that that time away from you will really have him reflecting on how special your relationship is and make him that much more determined to propose!!

I definitely am right there with you on being too shy for a public proposal. Even a proposal in like a restaurant would be pretty mortifying to me (although I always have enjoyed seeing them occur!)

Ooh, that is exciting! Congrats πŸ™‚ How do you feel about public proposals versus private ones? I ask because I think sometimes guys think public = better and I know i would not be happy about a public proposal! Someone I work with recently proposed to his fiancee by taking her out for drinks overlooking the water and had a plane fly by with the proposal written on a banner behind it.

@peonyinlove:  Oh crap. This just made me think about a couple things that happened this week and now I’m wondering…

My cousin (who I’m very close to) mentioned that she asked my boyfriend for his phone number. She kind of caught herself so I asked why and she said it was because I was in the middle of a mini-family crisis and it was “just in case”. That doesn’t make a ton of sense, but I let it go. Then the next day the same cousin was asking me how I’d like to be proposed to and was paying very specific attention and responding to things that “seemed do-able”. 

I wondering if they’re plotting something!

@MexiPino:  This sounds so incredibly promising as well! I bet they think they’re so sneaky haha!

@peonyinlove:  Have you already picked out rings? Maybe it’ll be coming before he leaves!! πŸ™‚

He hasn’t really asked, because I think we both want it to be a surprise for me. There aren’t any big events until his birthday in July, so it could really be anywhere anytime.

I told him flat out that if he pretends to die and then proposes then there will be a real death, lol.
