Now that I’ve known for a little over a month that he’s ready and preparing to propose, I’m pretty sure he let the exact timeline slip last night. The wait seems so much easier (albeit even more slowly moving) now!
We have an upcoming vacation in mid-June to the Bahamas. Last night he said something along the lines of, “during our celebration cruise…” I said, “oh? What are we celebrating?” His eyes got so big! He replied with, “Oh…you know, the end of the school year…you having the week off…” Scrambling! Busted!
So, I have a new countdown now. I’ve been counting the 67 remaining days before vacation…but now I’m just excited to know that we will be engaged within 67 days!
Commence 67 days of completely lacking concentration….

Might it be the first day of vacation? Good luck, so exciting!

Woo hoo!!! Good for you!!! He might be proposing before then, but that sounds like a genuine slip, not just something he said to throw you off (mine has done that… said “maybe your boss will be more likely to give you time off if you tell him your boyfriend might be proposing on that trip” when he was slightly drunk. I think he’ll be proposing before that though, from all other signs.)

@squeak: Yeah, when you know them as well as we do, you can tell when it’s a genuine “oh crap!” moment. haha. A drunken slip would be very endearing. Isn’t it almost painstaking, though?! Could be tomorrow, could be in two months….it’s killing me!

@aprilmay68: boy are we in the same boat! (LITERALLY) My Bahamas cruise countdown is 45 DAYS!!! We are going memorial day weekend, I know he has the ring, so I am wondering what he is waiting for. Last night I asked him if he wanted to make a reservation at the steakhouse on the boat and what day he wanted to do it, he said its up to me (I was hoping he would have a specific date in mind to celebrate, but no luck!) good luck to you!!!

🙂 It’s coming soon!! I wonder if it will be during the cruise or before? Since he said celebration that might mean his going to propose before. So exciting!!

Ahh! so exciting, congrats! 67 days will fly by, but I also have a feeling he might propose before the trip just because he let it slip and probably doesn’t want you counting every second during the vacation waiting for him to get down on one knee and propose (you know you would! ) My SO knows I’m a super detective so I know he’s going to purposely throw me off…our sweet men just want us to be surprised!
