Just thinking back on a convo my SO and i had earlier this year. We were talking about us and the future and he tells me a few weeks before our babyshower in March he took one of my rings out my jewelry case for sizing and went looking at rings. He did pick a ring and was to go back and pay for it until we got in a HUGE blowout over him inviting two of his exes to the shower. He said he changed his mind and didnt go back because of the fight and I made him mad. I never said anything mean or hurtful I just let him know i felt it was unacceptable and i wouldnt enjoy such an intimate celebration with them in attendance. Im grateful, however that he didnt get the ring because he had been telling me for a while he had a big surprise for me at our babyshower. I wouldve said yes of course, (no matter where he proposed) but in the end he understood mmy argument about the guests and he apologized for telling me about the surprise that didnt happen lol. Oh well. Maybe next time. Anybody else found out of a proposal that didnt happen???

I haven’t but that would make me cringe too. At least he came around and saw things from your point of view.

SO and I broke up for 6 weeks in January, we had a big trip planned for Disney in April with his kids and mine that we had been planning for months and we were going no matter what! We got back together in march and started therapy after the trip. He confessed that before the break up he was planning on proposing in Disney. Guess I shouldn’t have pushed so hard 🙁 oh well I’m sure his proposal he has planned now will be great too 🙂

While it’s cringeworthy, it’s worth speaking your mind sometimes. I would’ve been pissed if my SO invited his ex-girlfriends to such an intimate celebration so I don’t blame you for going off at him.

My SO was planning on proposing when we went to Mackinac Island in may… But my sister got engaged that same day, and he hadn’t actually purchased the ring… Basically he pointed out the spot he was going to, but it would have been to much to have just heard about my sister, and waiting on a ring, he postponed and now we are waiting for the heirloom diamond to be reset. So much better then the first option, even if I am waiting longer… 😉
