    I had no idea or inkling.  FI and I had discussions when we first started dating that he was completely against marriage.  He hated it.  He made it a point he never wanted to marry.  I shrugged it off.  I wasn’t looking for a partner to marry.  I just turned 21.  I was single for 3+ years so whatever!  Lo and behold, a little after our year anniversary, the little stinker proposed.

    Yes, we had talked about it.  I mean, he asked for my ring size, he asked me to marry him (he’d just say “marry me” when we were lying around about 50 times), I sent him what rings I liked.  We picked a day out.  All before he “officially” proposed (although I think it’s silly, because you’re already engaged if you pick a day out).  So I guess it can’t be a surprise when you already have a venue and a date.

    I voted for yes he had a ring, but we also talked about it.

    Yes…we picked out a ring, we talked about it, and I told him it needed to happen on our Disney vacation. He surprised me as to WHEN on vacation it happened though ๐Ÿ™‚

    I knew it was coming, but I didn’t know when exactly it would happen. I did not know he had a ring, although I had a suspicion because of him trying to be sneaky and looking at tracking numbers but really just drawing my attention to it because he was acting funny.

    I had an idea because he was working like crazy and so couldn’t make it on a trip to NYC that I was taking to see my father, and then at the last minute decided to take time off to come with me and insisted on going to spend a day in Manhattan with just the two of us… I dared to hope.. and it was true! He proposed in Central Park ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yup. I knew he had the ring because I’d been in the room when he ordered it and had picked it out, and I also knew he can’t wait to give me presents. Last year, he gave me my Christmas present the same day he bought it. So once he had it, I knew it’d be less than 24 hours.

    Right beforehand, he asked me if I wanted it “tonight or tomorrow” and I was impatient and told him I wanted it that night. Since he was about to bring me home, I knew it’d be in about 2 minutes. I was giggly and giddy all the way up the driveway, where he proposed (in the middle of a lightning storm!)

    I knew it was coming, but not the specific day. Basically, I knew he was getting a large bonus cheque at work and around the same time, he had taken me ring shopping. We were also leaving on vacation a few days later and assumed it was coming while we were on holidays. Finally, he’d been acting really weird and asking me questoons like “We are ready for this, right?” without really asking me what we might or might not be ready for. We had been dating for almost 4 years and were in our mid 30s…you’d better believe we were ready! lol

     

    I was right…he proposed on day 6 of vacation ๐Ÿ™‚

    We had both talked about marriage and knew we were going to at some point, but he is two years younger than me, and I thought he’d wait till he was a bit older (we started dating when he was 23 and I was 25).  And he was acting like he’d have to save for a while longer before he’d be able to buy a ring.  Little did I know, he’d had it for 2 months, and was waiting for the week before my birthday, and after his (aka, the one week where we are “only” a year apart).  So right after he turned 25, and while I was still 26, he proposed.  I never saw it coming then!

    Ours was kind of a mutual proposal, but we had no idea we wanted to get married until the day came. 

    We had relatives who had been out of town for years who got in touch with my grandma.  My grandma decided she was going to tell them I was engaged to this really nice boy . . . when we confronted her about it (jokingly) she told us we better not make a liar out of her.

    Soooo on the car ride home we decided we would get married.

    So romantic, I know.  But we are not romantic people to begin with.

    We had a trip planned to the Virgin Islands, so I completely expected him to propose while we were on vacation. Since he knew I was expecting it, he wanted to actually surprise me. While I was on a business trip to Chicago a few days before our vacation, he flew just for the night to surprise me and propose. So I knew it was coming soon, but was caught completely off-guard when he actually did it.

    I always hated the idea of getting engaged in two ways– a sporting event or on a holiday.  Just to mess with me, Fiance proposed on Christmas, knowing I’d say yes anyway.  I had a feeling he’d do something like that, but I was pretty caught off guard– the first thing I said was a very sarcastic “REALLY?!” and then, “YES!”

    I absolutely did! I had about a two week window that i was sure it would happen in, and my actual guess was only a day off.

    I had NO idea, we’d been together for 7 years at the point and knew marriage was in the future, but when we had our finances together and since they weren’t at the time, I didn’t think he saved thousands of dollars to buy me a ring, it was a total shocker.

    I had no idea!! I had emailed him rings I liked and 2 days prior to our engagement I asked him if he got my email while we were driving to dinner and he told me to stop wasting my time. I was so mad he would be so rude about it so I thought he was never going to do it. 2 days later we had a day of relaxing at home and it was perfect. He asked me if I knew because it just felt so perfect! We had Chinese food for lunch that day before he proposed and my fortune cookie said ” your love life will soon be happy and harmonious” it was meant to be!!
