I guess I gave him a timeline. We were talking about my friend’s engagement and this happened:

Him: “What would you say if I proposed tomorrow?”

Me: “I’d ask you if you asked my dad yet… and it’s cheating to ask me what I’d say!”

Him: “What would you say if I hadn’t asked you in a year?”

Me: “Like a year from today we weren’t engaged yet? We would have had a discussion long before that about why you weren’t proposing.”

As we were going to bed I guess I was quiet and he asked why. I said he freaked me out with his question (I couldn’t put my finger on WHY it freaked me out, but it did). He said he just needed “parameters”. Oh geeky science nerd boyfriend. ๐Ÿ™‚

So there you go… sometime before next February. I’m guessing not before June, because A) he’s dropped hints about designing a ring and I know he hasn’t bought a stone yet and B) June is my BFF’s wedding and he knows I want to focus on helping her plan it. I’m guessing it will be around the anniversary of when we met (Sept 9) or our “official” anniversary, which isn’t til October.

I have a general idea but my SO has confused me recently. We’ve talked about getting engaged after our 2 1/2 years which is in November…we’ve also talked about doing it after I graduate which is supposed to be in December but may be next May instead. We’ve also talked about getting married in Jan, Feb, March, Sept, or Oct of 2015 lol so a general idea but not set by any means.

My SO is super serious about it being a surprise. He says “the wedding is more about the bride and the proposal is more about the groom” (as far as who’s in charge). I graduate in 3 years. He says I WILL be engaged while I’m in school. Technically it could be this year or 2 years from now! gah!

The latest we’d get married would be the summer I graduate

I haven’t really been given a time frame.. But my SO has told me that if he had the money, we’d be engaged already (we’ve had a few blows to our finances lately ๐Ÿ™ ). So if all goes according to plan and we can continue to build our savings, then hopefully I’ll be engaged by our anniversary next year, March 24. It’s so exciting!

No longer a Waiting Bee but our original timeline was supposed to be the latter half of 2012. However, when we found out that we were going to Vegas, he moved the timeline to February 2013. Fortunately for my sanity lol, he came through.

 

When he moved the timeline, I got really impatient there for awhile thinking that 2013 was going to take ages to roll around but honestly, the days flew by and next thing I know, we were going away. And even though I knew that he was going to propose during the trip, he still managed to suprise and it was very very romantic and special.

  • Wedding: September 2014

After a lot of pestering my OH gave me a timeline of “single digit months” that was in feb. He then said it will de definately after 3 months (just started a new job with probation period of 3 months) and he needs to save for the ring so i know it will be any time from June to November but he keeps mentioning August (I think this is a bluff because he keeps telling me he wants it to be a surprise) so i made a point of letting him know that i will be expecting it any time from August onwards so if he wanted to surprise me he must do it sooner lol. My plans may work but who knows hehe.

 

I should also mention that he has let me set a wedding date of 20th September 2014 =]

Does it count if when I asked he said “it hadn’t completely slipped my mind” and then “I have a plan”? Lol

He didn’t seem put out when I said about our anniversary in 2014 so I just have to try to keep quiet until then XD

 

Good luck to all the girls with more specific timeframes! <3

Last year I told him that I expected a proposal before he is finished his residency (June of this year) and we are on track for that.  We picked out and purchased a ring at the beginning of Feb, and the plan is to visit my parents who live 4-5 hours away in May so that he can speak with them first in person to get their “permission” (a tradition that I’m not in love with but seems to be important to him so I’m not openly opposing it).  So that will leave a little more than a month for the proposal window.  Having such a small window makes the “waiting” easier, but still gives him the freedom to surprise me with the specific “when” as he could do it right away or make me (cruelly, lol) wait until the end of the month.  Also he lets me cheat every now and then and wear the ring around the house – some people think this is silly and makes the proposal less special, but we both think its fun!

My SO told me he’ll propose by the end of October 2013! Either it will be on Halloween (the day we met) or he’s saying the end of October to throw me off and he’s going to propose sooner!

Either way, we’ve set a date for the beginning of June 2014. And I’m going to look at rings on Friday! He says He doesn’t want to come because he doesn’t want me to see him with the ring before he proposes (awwww)

The ring is bought and in his bureau drawer. I’m hoping sometime in the next month.

We had this convo in Mexico last year and he said we’ll be engaged by his 35th birthday which is at the beginning of September and whilst we’re on holiday in Dominican Republic, so fingers crossed ๐Ÿ™‚
