I dunno. While there is always that romantic dream of my guy sweeping me off my feet by surprise with some magical, romantic moment for a proposal, in reality, I’m just looking forward to the day when we decide to spend the rest of our lives together. Plus, surprises tend to trigger anxiety issues for me, so it’s perhaps better not to have a surprise. . .for me. I totally understand that others don’t feel this way in the slightest. I just try to focus on the sweetness of the committment being made.

I don’t know then it will happen exactly, but it’s going to be before July 4th! We picked out the ring a week ago and decided that it would be awesome to announce it when our families are already scheduled to be together at an upcoming dinner. (I told him I could wait, but he was so excited he said he won’t want to keep it a secret after he pops the question.) I have no idea when he plans to do it or how…just that it’s very soon!

I’m not sure but I have a June-August time frame! But Girlfriend said not any day I would expect like my birthday or the day we moved in together which are both in July. She’s way better at keeping secrets than I am.

I guessed that it would be at a particular place while we were on vacation, and when he told me that I’d guessed correctly, we said “whatever” to the surprise and got engaged that night instead of waiting for the vacation or making him pick a different day. We walked downtown so he could get the ring from his office, and then he found a pretty spot in the city and proposed. It was still just as amazing as if it had been a surprise!

It’s been about two weeks since my boyfriend ordered the ring (I saw the screenshot of the confirmation page when we were looking at memes on his phone lol) so I’m expecting mine this weekend! (:

I had a feeling that he was going to propose on NYE.  There were lots and lots of highly romantic moments that would have been perfect for proposing.  I got all nervous, but it didn’t happen.  Then, after we got back from a fireworks show, came back to our hotel, enjoyed a glass of champagne, changed into our pjs, and I was already in bed, he walked around to my side of the bed and went on one knee and proposed at like 3am.  It was very casual, yet completely adorable… so you never know.  Even when guys seem predictable (my husband gave me so many clues), they may still surprise you

My SO has given me a two month window (this coming August/September) of when he will propose. I also know what my ring will look like and I know he has it so I’m in the same boat! And while it might not be a total surprise to me, for us it’s more about what he is going to say and the fact we are making that commitment to each other that will make the moment very touching. Plus he has said he wants to plan a “big” proposal since he didn’t have to stress about the ring, which considering he is rather private makes me really excited to see what he is going to do.

I’m not worried about not being surprised he’s proposing because the how and the whole experience will be exciting. Plus this way you have the ability to make sure you look your best too! But if you really want to be totally surprised tell him that but then you might have to wait even longer and let’s be honest waiting is kinda a pain!

I’m so surprised that so many ladies want to know the details about their proposal.

greybee:  I didn’t particularly want to know! Since we’re approaching almost 2 years together, I thought it was time for a conversation since I could tell he wasn’t thinking marriage. I just wanted to know how he was feeling — no pressure, no ultimatums.  So I brought it up…and boy was I wrong. I learned he was planning to propose in July. And I also learned that he can’t keep a secret, lol.  He was happy to have my input on the ring, but other than that I don’t know how it’s going to happen. 🙂

anonp:  My Fiance, my mom and I were at the gym working out together in July 2015. He took the time to talk to my mom while I was away for a moment and showed her the picture of the ring. She was so excited that she told me the date which was thanksgiving that same year. He found out I knew a month prior to the proposal so he had to change it a bit, two days after the holiday. He proposed at the Griffith observatory, which I told him to have it. More in the lines of at night full of stars…..so romantic 😍 he listened to me. He’s such a great guy

I know a rough timeline because I have a daughter and I told him that he can’t move in unless he proposes.  I want that level of commitment before him moving in since it would be devastating if things ended. She’s extremely emotional and gets super attached…but I digress.

I helped with designing the ring and telling him what I liked, because I have very specific taste in jewelry and he knows nothing about jewlery. Otherwise, he’s done it all on his own and is keeping it all a secret. I *think* he has the ring. He’s not sneaky at all and kept giving it away when he’d go to meet with the jeweler. That hasn’t happened again in over a month though, which is why I think he has the ring. He knows I want to be surprised and he hasn’t even mentioned the proposal since his last trip to the jeweler. Eeekk! I’m getting super excited! He’s supposed to move in in less than 3 weeks, so I’m really starting to get excited wondering what he has planned!
