Oh, I totally knew.  My honey was trying so hard to throw me off track, bless his heart. We had gone ring shopping together, but he was trying to keep the date a secret.  Unfortunately, we’re both romantics and I was expecting the night of our first anniversary of being a couple to be the night.  Somehow I didn’t agonize over it all day (we were on vacation, you see).  But when it came to the point of my radars going off waiting for dessert, I excused myself to the restroom and talked myself down.  I started smiling when I saw the covered plate waiting for me when I got back, and giggled like crazy when I saw the box.  I didn’t stop laughing through a few tears for five minutes, and it was the best feeling I’ve ever had to this day.

I thought it would. I with shortnsunny in that Fiance tried so hard to throw me off but I knew it was coming, at least to some degree. I had seen my ring many times before because it was my grandmothers and I thought that surely all of this would lead up to a very anti-climatic proposal. Boy, was I wrong! I couldn’t control my crying when Fiance proposed. It was still very very magical.

Honestly, do many girls have NO idea its coming? I mean, if your in a serious relationship, everyone surely has SOME idea that its coming right?

My poor Fiance just couldn’t keep it a secret…he tried but wasn’t very good at it lol. I knew when he bought it and when he went to pick it up and which day he was going to propose, but you know…it was still fun and we are still engaged…so who cares???

Kind of – as in it wasn’t a surprise anymore.  It was still very exciting though and I was happy that I got to pick my own e-ring.

My Fiance is very bad at keeping secrets. We had talked about when we wanted to get married and had looked at rings together and picked out “the ring”. He actually made it a few weeks without telling me he bought the ring, but after he spilled the beans on that he had a hard time keeping his proposal plan a secret. I had a pretty good idea of how he was going to do it, but when the time came I started thinking maybe he had other plans, so I was a little surprised when he did it. Even though I knew it was coming I was still really excited and couldn’t stop smiling the whole night!

Unlike some of the previous posters, I was definitely surprised–and we went ring shopping together! However, we went ring shopping together, and I picked the ring out, months before he actually proposed. So, at first I was playing the guessing game–every time he acted out of the ordinary I thought “this is it!” But then I got tired of being wrong so I quit guessing lol. He actually totally surprised me when he did it and I loved it.

So even though I knew what ring I was getting, and was 90% sure I knew when he had gone to buy it, I was still surprised when he actually got down on one knee and popped the question.
