I’m sorry. I think that I would have a SERIOUS talk with him. and before you leave. Otherwise, you will have a horrid trip, because you will be mad at him the whole time. I really hope it works out for you. Maybe he is just trying to surprise you?

I dont know what to say… you dont want him to feel like he HAS to so I wouldnt want to bring it up too much. On the other hand I understand your disapointment. I try to go into everything with the additude “If I expect somthing I will just get disapointed” so I try not to expect or anticipate anything from anyone (including FI) You should still look forward to your vaca with him, Im sure it will be wonderful. Keep your head up girl, it will be your turn soon enough!

not to get your hopes up… but…

I went through this with my fiance.  So many times I thought he was going to propose and he didn’t.  We looked at rings.  Months later.  (short version) we booked a photographer for what I mistook as engagement photos.  When I talked to him and he said no, that they weren’t epics.  I cancelled the session.  I was fuming and he let me fume.  I rebooked the session with the expectation that it was just nice couples pics for our parents.  And he surprised me with a prosposal.  It was so romantic and now captured forever in pics. 

Let it unfold.  Its so hard not to get wrapped up in it all.  Let him be the man and plan it.
