- Wedding: April 2014 - Rebar
As i was looking at posts other bees have posted about timelines and what not! i was wondering how many of you know the exact date or perhaps time when SO will propose?!
If you do know, has SO told you straight out or have they just filled you with many clues and you have put all signs together?!
My SO cant keep a secret at all lol and i am sure one of these days he will spill the beans on when he will propose. But i honestly want it to be a surprise! I am not asking any questions at all bc i am afraid he will just not be able to contain himself and tell me.
Any bees in this situation?!

@katherin788: I’m glad you want it to be a surprise! Too many brides spoil it for themselves. Where’s the fun in knowing, right? 😉
The idea of the perfect proposal is not about how or when or where or how much. It’s about the fact that he wants to show you that he loves you with all his heart and wants to spend the rest of his life with you.
All the best and I hope your bloke can keep his mouth shut until the time comes!

@katherin788: wish I was in store for a bit more of a surprise but when SO and I started plannin our vaca, I started seeing it coming. Our vaca is in 2 weeks and thats all I know! but leading up to now we have window shopped for rings (also dont know all the details of the final ring but some) and he is also a little obvious and had made me buy a new dress, hair done and nails done! I was only planning on getting my nails done and usually he dosnt care and leaves my prettying up to me!!!!!

My SO lives in another country half way across the world, and I will be visiting him in a few months for about a week. He has been talking about getting engaged for some time now and we have planned a timeline for the next 2 years of our lives, which includes getting married. So i’m pretty sure we will be getting engaged sometime in that week that I go visit him. He even told me a couple of ways he would propose lol. However he does it, I’m sure I will be both surprised and excited!

@katherin788: All I know that my SO is going to propose before Febuary .So it could very well be next month or January, im hoping it is next month lol. He very well knows I love December becuase of all the Christmas decorations that are going to be up but maybe he wont since he thinks I will be expecting it. That is as far as I got, so I do not know the exact date or month but it is happening soon! [;

I knew that Fiance was going to be proposing soon after we went ring shopping. He kept it on top of his refrigerator in plain view, so I knew it was sized and ready. He asked me on a Friday night. That morning, my mom had suggested I go get my nails done. Good tip!

I have a very strong feeling it will be in the next few days just by piecing little things SO has said. I think he will want to do it before thanksgiving so we can announce to our families on Thursday.

@katherin788: I knew exactly when it would happen! My SO wanted my opinion on the ring he had been eyeing online, so he sowed it to me and ordered it the very next day. He then went out of town for two weeks to work. The ring arrived the day before he came home and he picked it up at the Fedex depot the morning he arrived. I know my SO and I know he can’t keep a secret worth shit so I was 100% positive that I would be engaged that day. I was right…the ring was on my finger less than 20 mins after I got home from work!!

I’ve been told definitely Q1/Q2 2014. Awesome. Thanks for narrowing it down, buddy.
We tease each other back and forth. I ask him for hints, he comes up with the most ridiculous things. I tell him that a ring would solve whatever ails me (I had a bad flu a couple of weeks back – I’d heard the best cure is something sparkly on your left hand, etc.)
I really don’t want to know. I do like playing the game though.

@katherin788: UGH he will not tell me when he is planning on doing it! He wants it to be a total surprise. Which I want it to be a total surprise as well… I just want it to HAPPEN! I want to marry the bloke! 🙂

@katherin788: My now Fiance told me point blank what day he would ask, but that was because I was very involved in the entire process (at his request) and because he was nervous and I don’t really like surprises that much. He wanted to ask before the holidays and was having a tough time figuring out a day because we’ve been so busy, so he asked if it would work and I said it would. And then he requested I not schedule anything else for that day so he could ask. Lol!
@ksus07: I think knowing is ok as long as SO is fine with letting you know ahead of time. If you’re actively searching through all their stuff or emails or something then that doesn’t seem OK to me. . . but if he/she wants you to know ahead of time then I think thats cool.

I knew it was happening in the fall, but that was it. That said, I snooped (oops) and was almost certain it was going to happen at some point during a weekend away to Vermont – luckily, I was right! Looking back, I wish I hadn’t known it was coming at all, though.
