You respond by saying: “Fiance, this is not at all funny.” Then tell him why it isn’t funny and why you are upset at it. He may just need someone to tell him to shut up. I think he is excited about it, but the way he is doing it is super dumb.

I think Hollywood and romance movies have ruined engagements for everyone. They set up these expectations and norms that the guy is supposed to totally surprise her with some elaborate proposal, or at least a surprise proposal, and THAT is what is causing all the guessing and waiting and disappointments surrounding engagements. If people would let go of the idea that the proposal is supposed to be some big to-do and especially let go of the whole Surprise! aspect of it, it wouldn’t be so painful on women.

I was thinking the same thing! I thought it was the norm to be surprised by a proposal but I guess it isn’t like that anymore!
