Oh, I know most of us want to be completely surprised by that special moment, but I want to hear your conspiracy theories, the suspicions, the gut feels you have on how your SO will do it.
In the past week, I’ve practically hear my boyfriend make mental notes on two things?
1) We’re both currently on a 90-day diet and were talking about what we’d want to indulge in for a day or two after the diet is all done. He asked what my favorite food to eat out was, I thought he was still talking about the after diet indulgence so I through out a nice carb-y bowl of Japanese Ramen. He didn’t seem satisfied with that option and asked the name of a fancy Asian fusion restaurant I ate some delicious crab at with friends a while back.
2) While passing by a florist, he has me confirm my favorite flowers as he recalled several years ago I said Tulips were my fav. I confirmed and also told him I loved white roses.
My hunch – a bouquet of flowers for me and a proposal at a fancy crab dinner

oooh. i have no clue how he’ll propose. all i know is that it won’t be at a restaurant, i’ve told him i didn’t want that and he said he didn’t either, or at a sporting event, i’m a HUGE sports fan – him not so much – but i told him that i didn’t want a proposal there either. so that leaves pretty much anything else

My SO is so sneaky and I know a year and a half ago… him and his two friends schemed for his friend to propose.. so I know hes got two guys to help him.. I have NO idea how he will do it.

No clue how my SO is going to propose..he is so unpredictable. First he mentioned something about taking me to some beach he heard about then he said something about reliving our first date valentines weekend…I don’t think he knows how he is going to propose! I just really hope its not in a public place and its somewhere private and special for just the two of us.

It’ll be either at home or at our favorite sushi restaurant (which is pretty empty most of the time). He MIGHT do it when we go to the dinner he gave me for Christmas (once we get around to it) but I doubt it because that’s not really a meaningful place to us like the sushi place or my apartment. He could do it at work since we met there, but there’s no way he would.

I would LOVE it to be at a gorgeous restaurant but I’m willing to bet it will be while we’re eating Taco Bell and watching Bat Masterson.

I’m half-hoping/ half-suspecting it will involve one of our animals. It likely won’t be anywhere “special” because I’ll totally know. I’d love it if he did it out at my ranch where my horse is, or tied it to my bunny, or had one of our kittens deliver it or something like that. I don’t know if he has any big creative plans or is just going to keep it simple.

When I was not engaged, I pictured getting engaged over a cup of coffee or some hot beverage in a mountain cabin when it was snowing outside. But.. we live(d) in Florida, and vacation in warm places. Woops!

I have absolutely no idea how we will do it. It doesn’t really matter to me where it happens as long as it happens. I didn’t get a proposal the first time I got married, so I just want a touch of sweetness and romance.

I forgot to add that I don’t want it to be a surprise. I HATE surprises! They make me so, so nervous and the fact that he won’t tell me ANYTHING about what he’s doing makes me really nervous.

Right now I think I’m past caring! As long as it’s just us two when he does it, it will be perfect.
He’s said that he wants to surprise me, and he’s the kind of guy who’d want to make it special. From my standpoint he’s had ample opportunity to do both!

@gingerlex: Im with ya..I just want him to do it already! 🙂
Boyfriend or Best Friend wants to suprise me..this I know.
He isnt over the top or super romantic..he is a rather mellow guy.
And although I’m at the point where Ill take a proposal anywhere, anyhow..I think my dream proposal would be while were ice skating (which I have been DYING to do lately and have let him know lol), on a vacation, or in front of my friends and family.
I predict it will be something low key, but I have no idea what he is planning!

I’m betting we’ll be alone, he’ll be adorably nervous, and the setting will be romantic. No clue on the details though! Maybe in B-More at the Inner Harbor, or on Halloween? No idea.

A tiny part of me would love for him to propose the day before I graduate college. He graduated from Ohio State in 2008, and I will be graduating in June. It is where we met, had our first date, and is in the city we both love. In my dream engagement, we’d go on a walk through OSU’s campus at night, and we’d take the “long walk” down the oval, where he would then propose to me under the stars. The “long walk” is an old tradition where if a couple walks down the length of the oval (the middle part of campus) and noone crosses their path, and the bells chime, the couple is supposed to get married and live happily ever after. So if he could figure out how to make sure the bell chimes with our alma mater AND have noone cross our path as we walk, it would be perfect!
I know that’s totally cheesy, but we are both buckeyes through and through, so I think it’d be a perfect way to propose!
But, who am I kidding, he could propose to me on a post it note Gray’s Anatomy style and I’d be super happy!

I am not sure how he’ll do it, and I’d love for it to be a surprise. One thing he does know, though, is that I don’t want a really public proposal where I’d feel embarrassed or pressured (though a restaurant would be fine as long as he doesnt make any loud embarrassing speeches). I DID, however, tell him that IF he wanted to do a big, public proposal, I would be thrilled if it were at a Red Sox game, as we are both huge fans.
