Hi! I’m in the same situation that Miss Avacado was as of a few weeks ago, and I’m looking for advice. FH and I have set a date and are both busy planning our wedding, but he hasn’t officially proposed or put a ring on my finger yet because we’re in a VERY long distance relationship.
You can read about the issue on my blog (the first post on the page) in a new window and comment there (you don’t have to log in) or here.
I’m just wondering how not to risk feeling disappointed if there isn’t a "proper proposal" during the two day romantic getaway my FH is planning. If it’s not the right time for him, I don’t want the whole thing to be forced. The blog obviously explains what’s happening in a lot more detail, and I decided not to write it twice…lazy me.
Any advice would be great! Thanks!

Without reading the blog… I also set my date and booked the venue before there was a proposal. I found that by expecting him to propose only prolonged it. There were ample opportunities with fancy dinners, romantic weekends, etc… but he never did it. Until, finally on a Monday night — when I would least expect it — he popped the question. We talked about it later and he told me that he wanted me to be surprised, eventhough I knew it was coming — the only way to do that was to catch me off guard. So, I guess my advice is to STOP thinking about it. He will do it when he is ready and when you aren’t expecting it. You would be more disappointed if he did it just because you are expecting it!
