Well, last night I had my first realistic one and it threw me for a bit of a loop. It was not nice to wake up from that and still think, for a split second, that I was engaged. 🙁 I don’t think an early shift at work helped!
On a funny note, I actually thought to myself (IN MY DREAM) “I have to get my name crossed off the list!” and I even knew what number I was on the waiting list in my sleep! lmao
So, make me feel less silly… anybody else have realistic waiting dreams?

I had a nightmare about a month before my fiance proposed…
We were at my parents’ house, and G. [who is now my fiance] came up to me wherever I was and said, “I have something important to talk to you about.” So I knew he was going to propose, and I was super excited…but then my family called from the kitchen and were like, “Peachacid, come outside! It’s important! Come now!” So I said to G something like, I’ll be right back. So I go out to the backyard where everyone is, and they’re all (and I mean like everyone in my family) standing in this semi circle and my brother is there with a ring box. And he’s like, “We’ve decided you’ll marry me because G. is never going to propose.” So G. hears this and walks away (apparently because he thought there was no chance) and I was like, um, WHAT THE FUCK???? I am not marrying my brother, that is messed up!!!! But my whole family was like, this is a great idea!!! The ring had pearls on it.
Man I woke up from that dream and I was like, WHAT??????? WHAT??????????

@peachacid: Not judging you, because I had a crazy one last night too. And not that dissimilar. Except that it was my roommate who proposed, not a family member. I just remember that in the dream I kept crying and saying that I wanted to marry my boyfriend, not my (female) roommate. The weirdest thing about it in the dream was that he was in in it, taking me to the surprise, but then got all upset with me!!
I think I need to cut back on caffeine before bed.

@Contented_J : & @peachacid: I haven’t had anything quite that strange, but I definitely know I’ve had dreams about engagements or weddings where nothing seems to be going right. I’m glad both of yours were just dreams and you weren’t forced to marry somebody seemingly random lol..

I’ve had dreams about SO proposing!! One night I woke up and thought it was true… then I realized I have no ring.

My guy told me he had a dream last night about getting the ring we designed back from Helzberg and that he planned this specific proposal…he wouldn’t tell me how the proposal went because he said it gave him an idea!

I had a dream he got me the wrong ring, so the next day I e-mailed him a link just to make sure. He already had the right ring and thought it was funny.

I JUST had a dream 2 nights ago! I’ve had one other one before and I hate them but love them. I like the crazy proposals my dreams create… at one point we were at a lake.. I think… but it sounded like the beach but there were no waves… talk about wild. hahah But then i hate them when it gets me all excited and happy and reality comes in and i’m like… OH. It was a dream. Cooooool.
Did you guys tell you SO’s about the dreams? I told mine about the one I just had but no more details then “it was a happy future dream” haha

Oh my god, I just came here to post about my engagement dream!
I could have sworn that just as I woke up, my boyfriend was standing beside my bed holding a sign that said “Will you marry me?”
It was really realistic and I was really confused when I got up, not knowing if it had actually happened.
Pretty certian now that it didn’t, kind of wish it had…

I’ve never had an engagment dream. It was nice though, The very first dream I’ve ever had with my SO was us getting married. It’s was odd because we were all on rollar skates but still it was nice.

@Batsygirl: Roller-durby wedding!
My first dream that involved my SO was our wedding too. The funny thing was that I always had my dream wedding planned out. missing everything but the groom. In my dreams i was never able to see him. In that dream, I don’t remember seeing anything at all but his face at the end of that isle.
My second dream was while we were on Vaca and I dreamed he popped the question at a construction site (significance, anyone?)

I consistently have dreams where he proposes, but with a really, REALLY ugly ring. Once it was a big plastic ring, and last night it had weird growths sticking out of it. In my dreams I’m always horrified but trying frantically not to let him know because he’s so pleased with himself. I always end up reconciling myself to wearing this thing for the rest of my life.
When I wake up I don’t know whether to be relieved or disappointed! Lol.

@peachacid: Hahahahha I’m sorry that is hysterical and I’m at work laughing lol so cute. We all need help lol!!!

Thanks guys, I feel slightly less crazy now. Especially for knowing that I’m not the only one who woke up and wasn’t quite sure if it had actually happened or not for a few seconds. *sigh* Hopefully everybody gets their real proposals soon so we can stop having such crazy dreams!
@MissPotato: I don’t really mean to laugh about the ugly ring, but I did. One of the first dreams I ever had where I was engaged involved SO giving me an eternity ring. That would be nice, but it had a bunch of rainbow coloured stones in it and just generally was not a nice ring lol.
