ouch! Not that often, but he’s done it once or twice and is fond of calling me Mrs. Hislastname, which makes me crazy! I tell him that next time he asks, there better be a ring (with a laugh and fake-mean eyes lol) and I told him he is not allowed to call me that until we are married. It’s super cute in a way bc at least you know they’re thinking about it, but man it is frustrating!

First of all, Welcome to the bee! Glad you decided to join! 🙂 Second, I would tell your boyfriend straight up to stop ‘fake proposing’. Let him know that the gig is getting old, and that you’re not interested in hypotheticals at this point in your relationship. Maybe he thinks it’s cute, and that he’s reassuring you about how he feels, but that would personally drive me insane! I would have a serious conversation with him about when you both envision taking that step together. Would you like to wait a while as well? Do you want to get engaged right now, or is it just that he’s putting these thoughts in your head, and it’s annoying becuase then you get your hopes up?

@NerdCampLove: Welcome welcome! 

Oh no! Sweetie I don’t know what to say to you but no, my bf does not and I’m very thankful for that. He assures me but never says “will you marry me?” because I’d slap him in a very painful place if he did that for no reason other than just to humor himself.

I wouldn’t like it at all if my boyfriend (now DH) “proposed” to me that often. To me, it kinda cheapens the actual moment and makes me think that if that happened to me, I would have been like “Are you serious this time? I can’t tell ..”

My fiance fake proposed twice.

The first time, we were out to a very nice dinner, and I was talking about how I spoke with my cousin that day about her upcoming wedding, and he goes, speaking of weddings, reaches for his pocket and starts to bend onto his knee and goes “nah, I’m just kidding.” I laughed and told him that was mean.

The second time, we were in our apartment, but it was basically the same thing. Based on my reaction (I was not laughing this time), it never happened again 🙂

But, when he did propose, as he was getting down on one knee, I said “What are you doing? Is this for real? You aren’t actually proposing are you? Is this a fake proposal?!”

Then I saw the ring and realized it wasn’t the fake one!

So, long story short, you aren’t alone in this. But I totally get how it gets old – and fast!
