I feel the same way re: being nervous!  It’s like as soon as I realized it was really REALLY going to happen I started feeling all weird and freaky.  I think (/know because one of my friends spilled the beans!!) that he is going to propose TONIGHT and I am sitting here at work freaking out and stomach all aflutter with anxiety.  How do you react to a proposal?!?  I feel like I will just say, “holy shit.” or something else semi-innapropriate.

I totally understand the nervousness! I’m not a crier in general and I always worried that my reaction to his proposal would be underwhelming. When he did propose, I realized that it was about to happen and I got so nervous I just kept playing with my phone until he was like, “hey, I kinda need your attention”. When he asked it was surreal and I said yes(!) and we hugged and kissed, but there was no screaming/crying/ passing out (no offence if this was someone eles’ reaction, it’s just not me). I asked him if he was upset that I didn’t cry or anything and he said he knew I wouldn’t because that’s just not who I am.

Good luck! I hope it works out perfectly Smile

I agree with your thoughts your reaction, I feel the same way! Im waiting and waiting and when you know its so close, its not a really surprise. I feel like when it happens it will be more of a sigh of relief than genuine delight.  which also makes me mordidly dread it.

Oh my gosh, girls! I feel the same way. I know he has the ring. I know it’s close. And rather than being excited, I’m nervous and I feel sort of weird.

Why do I feel this way?! I thought it would be the most exciting time ever..waiting for a proposal.  

@1stRosie:  +1!

I really think that these icky feelings might be because I’m expecting it. We did the whole picking a ring thing together and as happy as I am that he allowed me to pick my dream ring, I feel like the “Surprise! I’m proposing!” factor is totally gone.
