    Personally, I don’t think anything of it. It sounds promising, but he may know that you’re expecting a proposal, so he might propose before the trip, or even after you get home. I’m dating my so long distance for 2 1/2 years, but no proposal yet. His nephew even asked after 1 year of dating in front of my so “are you proposing?” He said no, but everyone was thinking that as he held a jewelry box and was on one knee; it ended up being a bracelet. My situation is that he bought the ring and is now trying to get financially ready for a wedding in about 1 1/2 years. I’m going to school for medical coding and I’ll graduate in June, so he wants to do it then.

    naiade :  Mmmmm could be or it could be nothing, try not to get your hopes up. Have a fab trip and a great birthday and hopefully he will propose, but if he doesn’t please don’t let it ruin the whole trip.

    I think the nails is a positive sign but keep an open mind and enjoy the celebrations. Let’s us know if anything happens and keep an open mind.

    Hubs and I went on vacation. I was hopeful it would happen over the trip. He sat me down a week before we left and told me that he wants to pay off one more student loan before he buys my ring.

    I cried. I was pretty bummed.

    So needless to say it was a total surprise when he popped the question in my favorite place in the whole world!

    TBH, I’m glad he did that. Or else it wouldn’t have been as fun. I usually figure things out, so it was nice that he caught me completely off guard.

    MsBeer :  I agree with MsBeer. I think it looks promising, but like you said, you could be just zoning in on those little details because you’re wanting it so bad. I voted “yes” but would reiterate MsBeer’s point that IF it doesn’t happen, don’t let it ruin your birthday or trip!

    I think it sounds positive but you have to decide to enjoy your trip either way and not be upset and let it ruin the trip if he doesn’t. When I was waiting I let my expectations ruin too many occasions that would have been otherwise awesome. So be excited, but don’t get your hopes too high and enjoy yourself regardless!

    It could be signs or it could be absolutely nothing.

    I almost hate these posts because 9/10 of them end up being nothing and then the bee comes back posting about how terrible their trip was or they come back after the guy proposes two months later and complains that the proposal wasn’t good enough going all “Why didn’t he just propose on the trip?!?!” 

    I know waiting sucks but it almost gives girls false spidey senses and they start to turn everything nice their guy does into a “sign.” Just enoy being with your SO and have a good trip.

    That sounds REALLY promising! If it isn’t his plan, he sure knows how to lead a girl on, haha!

    princessg56 :  I just wanted to comment because I saw you’re in school in medical coding 😊 I graduated January 2016. Been working in the field for a year and a half now. I love it!

    Awesome! I just wanted to let you know that it does sound really promising, but you never know. My so was gonna propose this year, but had a pay cut and then moved to a cheaper place. So he’s gonna propose in June, so I think it’ll be soon.
