    I won’t propose to him. I feel like I shouldn’t have to do that, plus it’s a big deal to him to do the tradtional surprise proposal. So it’s a no for me 🙂

    My mom proposed to my dad and they’ve been married for 22 years now. My dad was Catholic and she was Mormon and when they first started dating she told him she wouldn’t marry outside her religion. So, 2 years later when she decided she wanted to be with him she didn’t expect he would propose because of what she said and he was about to be sent back to the US from England (he was in the military). So she proposed. And she’s pushed me to propose as well. Said if I know what I want I should go for it. My guy doesn’t feel the same. He’s expressed great discomfort over the idea of having it all taken away from him. Doesn’t mean I haven’t considered it though. 🙂

    I would have but he said that was his job. So I waited- he proposed this year.

    It’s funny, I had been thinking about it but thought he wouldn’t like it. It was kind of a, I know he’s going to do it, let’s just get on with it, kind of thing. A couple months ago we were watching The Office and Holly tries to propose to Michael, but Michael keeps cutting her off so he can do it. Fiance says that’s what he would have done, hehe. He did a great proposal though, so I’m glad I kept my mouth shut!

    If I did I know it would be over because it would show how little I know about him. 

    He is quite traditional in this sense and so am I, it would ruin it for us and he would be upset. It’s his thing and he wouldn’t like the feeling of being proposed to. 

    It all depends on the guy and how he would feel about it.

    I’m not against proposing to him, but I’d never thought about it just because we hadn’t really been together that long.

    My aunt proposed to my Uncle, they’re now happily married and expecting their first baby. I guess some guys just need a nudge in the right direction.
