So, C and I have a date, put down the deposit on the ceremony/reception site, got the invitations (still have to print them–but no rush), favors, centerpieces and my dress. We’re in the process of confirming with the photographer we chose… but still no ring.
I told him that a Christmastime proposal is my dream proposal, but he’s being so tight lipped he won’t even tell me how he knows my ring size! I know it’s coming at some point, obviously, but I’m finding myself getting antsy. I want to be able to tell everyone, I want it to be “official” and, to be honest, I want the new sparkly! I’m trying not to drive him nuts asking questions, but the closer it’s getting to Christmas, the harder it is!
Is anyone else out there getting antsy because they know it’s coming?

Waiting is the hardest part! It sounds like it’s coming really really soon (especially if you’re already done so much planning!) I’m sure if your Boyfriend or Best Friend is anything like mine, he wants it to be a surprise and so doesn’t want to give you any hints!
Just keep reminding yourself that it will happen and when it does, it will be worth waiting for!
Good luck and use WB as a vent so you don’t drive your Boyfriend or Best Friend (or yourself) crazy!

Um, yes! He’s been alot more open about it the last few days. It’s been a little bit startling, actually. We haven’t even gone ring shopping, so I know he’s sticking to his original timeline of February, but still! I want to start getting things done NOW!!!

@trailmix: oh yeah, he definitely wants to keep it a surprise! I’ve never known anyone who was so good at keeping secrets, though! 🙂
@KMSull: I know what you mean! That’s why I asked him about starting to plan before it’s “official”. I couldn’t wait to start planning, but I kind of needed to, too, considering we were already planning to get married next summer.
I think the hardest part is not asking him questions! I just want one hint. Just one. 🙂
Do you think it’s worse when your Boyfriend or Best Friend is as tightlipped as Fort Knox, or when your Boyfriend or Best Friend keeps teasing or leaving hints?

Same here. I exploded at him again today and he just looked at me like I was crazy and sighed. Poor him lol. I cant even wait the 3 or 4 weeks that I think it is.

Well… I got my hint. Careful what you wish for, I guess! I talked to him about it last night, and he said that to do it at Christmastime would put a serious crimp on things time-wise. He then hinted that it wouldn’t be until after our cruise (we’re going on a cruise on 1/2/10). Then he asked me why.
I couldn’t help it. I told him about how I love the warm fuzzies of the Christmas spirit and the decorations and how you don’t have that during the rest of the year. I said that even though I know whatever he does will be great, to have it follow the time I had really hoped for so closely would feel a little bit like a tease, or a slap in the face (ouch, but I was exhausted–the fatigue made me say it! We were in bed and I was starting to fall asleep at that point). 🙁
The truth is, though, it’s disappointing more because he’s known for a long time that my dream proposal is at Christmastime than because of having to wait longer. I know he has to do it in his own way and on his own time, and I really don’t mind waiting a little longer (after all, we’re already planning!). It just hurts that he knows how special Christmas is to me but isn’t going to do it. Is that horribly ungrateful? My family thinks it’s a red herring, but I really don’t think it is…

i think it’s a red herring too.. why would he wait after your cruise?! that’s literally a few weeks later.. would you be okay with him proposing without the ring?

I agree, there’s a good chance that he’s just trying to trick you so you’ll be surprised.
I was so antsy before Fiance proposed. We’re long distance, and he proposed on our last visit, but I didn’t think he was going to because of something he had said. So, literally right before he proposed I was complaining that I was going to have to tell my friends and family that nothing had happened…again. (They were all on engagement watch). That’s when he started smirking and got down on one knee! Yeah. Little bit embarrassing for me, but I was surprised!
I hope it happens soon for you!

I was rereading my old threads while looking for something and came across this one. I figured I’d give an update! You can read about the proposal here, which was on 12/23, but I wanted to write because after he proposed he told me something that explained his “hint”! The reason it would put a crunch on things time-wise is because he had ordered the ring too late. It came in on the 22nd, and he picked it up until the evening he proposed! He picked it up barely in time to meet me at home as if nothing was out of the ordinary. So, it turns out it actually wasn’t a red herring after all! But I’m glad it worked out anyway. 🙂
