I kinda hope he proposes at Disneyland 🙂 that’s where we met for the first time and we’re both season pass holders so we’ve spent A LOT of time there together. I really don’t want a public proposal but I would totally be ok with him proposing in front of the castle during a photo op haha. I love to look at people’s proposal pics and I hope he remembers that. At this point though, whatever he decides will be perfect!

I know it won’t be somewhere with a lot of people around, for sure. We go on a lot of scenic hikes together, so it might be somewhere like that. And I bet he’ll say a little paragraph about our life together, because he’s very eloquent and vocal about his feelings.

I do not know when or where my SO will propose but I do know that we will, for the most part, be alone. I have expressed how I wanted it to be just us. I don’t want parents or friends to be around so that way we can share some special time alone afterwards. He agreed that he wanted to do the same. It is for the most part because I really think that it will be a outdoors proposal. I know he is going to talk to my dad and get down on one knee. I really think that he will say a few short words about how much he loves me and then say those magical four words.

@emmrr3:  I think it will probably be simple and private. We’ve spent a lot of time on the beach (we currently live about 2 miles from the beach, often go down to San Diego and have taken a few trips up the coast), so I’m guessing it might happen there. He has always been kind of an introvert and spent a lot of time alone while in college/grad school- both of which were right on the ocean, so he knows a lot of off-the-beaten path beach places and has shared some with me. That would be super romantic! 

He’s fairly traditional, so I think he’ll get down on one knee. He’s written a couple poems for me and music plays a huge part in our relationship, so those things might come into play. 

Personally, I’d like it to happen in private but followed with seeing our friends or my mom’s side of the family soon after. So maybe the night before a holiday? Or maybe he could do it before a planned surprise dinner? I don’t know! I’m sure whatever he plans (and he knows it should be PLANNED and not when I’m lounging in my pjs!) will be great. 🙂

I’ve told him that I don’t want anything public, I want it to be just us. I sort of hope that he’ll hand me the ring and simply say “Yes”. Since I already proposed to him, I think it would be really cute. 

I know he has a plan, because he told me that I can’t ask, because it’s going to be a surprise. It doesn’t matter that I don’t like surprises apparently. LOL It was actually an amusing conversation.

@emmrr3:  oh there are lots of things from that period he could get inspiration from! That sounds really cool. My BF seems to have great ideas but it seems like he has a hard time actually making things happen the way he envisioned haha. He loves to be the center of attention. I’m much more shy but for some reason I just REALLY want that moment to be photographed. I have no idea whether or not he’s started planning. I don’t think he’s going to propose for another 6 months or so, so he definitely has time 🙂

I honestly have no clue how he’ll propose. Ideally it will just be the two of us and no one else around

At this point, I have no idea, but if I were to guess I’d say either our 3 year anniversary on July 21 just us two, or at our family and friends baby shower on August 3. It sort of depends when he gets the ring back from the jeweler.

Any way he does it, I just hope he makes it a surprise and special, especially since I have a rough estimate of when it’s coming!

I think it’ll be fairly public, or at least privately within a public setting. He’s a showy guy and knows I love drama, so I think he’s going to try and make a big scene. I already warned him it can’t be TOO over-the-top – no baseball stadiums or gigantic public situations. But he’s having fun torturing me with when/how/where/etc. so I’m sure it’ll be awesome. He’s never let me down in the romance department yet (:

I’d rather it be in private because I’m an awkard, easily embarassed person. On the other hand my SO is very open and just recently asked me to live with him while we were having a casual conversation with his mother.

I can see my boyfriend either being extremely romantic, or doing something ridiculous in a very public setting. I can also see him going ‘How ’bout it?’. He’s always surprising me.

So I’d rather it be private, I’d want to be doing something kind of fun like hiking or skating, but I’ll leave it allll up to him.

Ive asked for it to be private. Im imagining our pup will be involved (swoon). My fantasy is that breakfast in bed happens along with it…. But he never ever wakes up before me lol.

I honestly have no idea. I’ve tried to envision it for a long time, and I’ve got nothing. My bf is a fairly shy person (somewhat) so I don’t see it being this elaborate public event. He also is a very spontaneous person, so I’m pretty sure it’ll be a sweet, simple proposal which is fine by me.

Well I’m cheating because I already know. He’s not “getting down on one knee” proposing. He’s just going to give me the ring and then we have a fun day/night planned full of activities. Not sure what he’ll say when he presents me with it. Could be as simple as “Here you go” lol
