dashingdaisy:  We don’t visit my Dad often so when we would I would wonder if he asked then, he never did and it got me a little down at the time. Turns out he just called my dad up and asked the day before he proposed!

My Fiance asked my dad in December and proposed the following July… We have been talking about marriage for about 6 months before he asked my dad πŸ™‚

The same day! DH took my dad to lunch, and then proposed that evening.

Funny enough we had a Christmas party to go to that night, so I’d been out all day running errands and finding something for DH to wear. I’d called him to see what he was doing for lunch, and he told me he’d already made plans to eat with my dad (nothing unusual, they’re close, and do it all the time). I was peeved he didn’t invite me, but picked up my own lunch. Turns out the reason he didn’t invite me was that he was tellin my dad about the proposal for that night.

dashingdaisy:  Two days. He had received the ring (ordered from etsy) and was planning to propose on Thanksgiving. I assume a lot of guy ask and then buy the ring, so that might change things. 

Also, technically, my sister’s boyfriend asked our permission (me and dad- mom passed away) for her hand when he came to talk about knocking her up. My nephew is 2 and half and there’s no ring in sight… so asking permission doesn’t really mean it’s coming soon if your boyfriend is kind of dumb. πŸ˜›

dashingdaisy:  Fiance told my dad he would propose 6-8 months after they had their man-to-man talk, and he ended up proposing 6 WEEKS after instead. So you never know!

One week later my Fiance proposed πŸ™‚ My dad works a super stressful/time consuming job, so he called him to ask. He told me it was the most nerve racking experience of his life hahah

dashingdaisy:  My husband never asked permission.  I thought it was antiquated thing, and told him he can ask me himself.  But I would say that most likely if he were to really ask, he would have proposed quickly there after.

One hour.  He didn’t think they could keep it a secret.

Ha, good question. I’ve been wondering the same. I know he spoke to my parents at Christmas, and we’ve just hit April and I remain ‘patiently’ waiting…!
