I think that women are wired to just ‘know’.
I woke up the day of and thought to myself "today is the day"
When getting dressed, I asked myself "now, what does a girl wear when she is about to be engaged?"
Did anyone else just have that gut feeling? And did you act shocked when it happenend (I acted surprised when he asked)

Yes, I did. MyFI was acting odd leading up to the day he asked me so i kinda knew somthing was up. But even though i knew it was coming i acted surpirsed/shocked, and i didnt expect how he asked so it was all good

Ha! I only knew because I had told the fiance I needed a year to plan a wedding, and if we wanted a summer 2009 wedding, he needed to propose when he got back from his R&R from Iraq in May 2008 (for those who don’t know, R&R is a 2 week break the Army gives deployed soldiers). He didn’t come home until Christmas Eve so I would have been going crazy to say the least! Plus I got to stare at my new ring and think about how when he came home for good we could get married!

I did. But thats because I saw my parent’s phone number on his cell phone a few days earlier… I knew it was coming- I just wasn’t sure when. Even though he was acting strange on the day of, I was still a little surprised when it happened.

- Wedding: August 2009 - Bernardo Winery
I totally knew it was coming… I kind of reget my intuition b/c I would have loved to have been completely surprised, but knowing helped me not be a raging biotch while I was waiting 🙂

Hmm … interesting question. Personally, I was taken completely by surprise, in spite of the fact that we’d been talking about it kind of vaguely for months. He was as shocked by it as I was, though. I think he decided that he was going to ask about 2 seconds ahead of time. I don’t think I breathed for awhile after that one.

we were at my cousin’s wedding, and even though i tried as hard as i could to avoid the bouquet, it fell right at my feet. then the mc (my brother in-law) said: wow, we’ll see what her boyfriend has to say about this!" and right there in front of everybody, my bf comes out to the dance floor, gets on one knee, and holds out a ring for me. he was so nervous, he actually forgot to ask and just knelt in front of me smiling.
being at a wedding, it was all caught on video and pictures.

I feel like I SHOULD have known, but I really didn’t…
– We went away for a long weekend a random week in November.
– As we were packing he was really indecisive about what to pack…and this man traveled for 85% of his last job..he’s an EXPERT at packing.
– On the way into the restaurant I went to hold his hand and he took a big step away..thinking I was reaching for his pocket. I thought he was being cranky.
But no…I was still VERY surprised when he proposed. While he was getting on one knee I thought his shoe was untied and asked what he was doing down there.

I just knew…its crazy so I made sure that my hair looked good just in case ( I was hoping ) someone took any photos of the proposal!

I kind of suspected it was for that day, but wasn’t entirely sure. I’m glad I was surprised!
Firefly062 – your story is hilarious!!!

I mistook my "gut feeling" last weekend! It really was a horrible rash that I got from a bathrobe at the resort we stayed in! I’m still itching and on benadryl for the last 3 days now.
But my true "gut feeling" says the official e is coming very soon. Very soon. 🙂

I had no idea. I thought I was getting a digital camera, not a ring! I hate to think back to how sloppy my hair was, that I was in my pajamas, and I did not have a bra on! I wish I had been more dressed up. But I like the fact that it was a surprise!

I was absolutely shocked. A few minutes before, I was doing the dishes that he was supposed to have done earlier and fuming. Then we sat down to watch a movie, and he sent me off on a scavenger hunt for a present he bought me. And when I found that pretty blue box, I was pretty sure he had gotten me the earrings I was craving, though I had no idea why…how wrong was I!!!

We agreed to get married and picked out the ring so it wasn’t a real full proposal and there was nothing to really know.
But when I met him I knew he was the one
