I would just apologize and try to move forward. I think the waiting-for-the-ring phase can make anyone a little crazy and on edge, and when reminders are thrown around it doesn’t so much make you excited as it makes you anxious! 

It sounds like you guys just had one of those nights that you’ll laugh about once you’re actually engaged. I’m so sorry you’re feeling bad about it. You guys clearly care about each other, it’s just so tough when you’re constantly WAITING for something to happen and you both want to be surprised and also want to know that SOMETHING is happening towards the end goal. 

I’d just start with an apology for your part in it escalating and try to let things simmer down. Bleh, I hate when weekends start on a stressful note. I hope it gets better!!

Uh oh! Apologize to him without rehashing any of the fight. And try to forget about it.

Why do you need a proposal when you’ve already basically told him what you think he’s supposed to do? Sounds like you’ve already made the decision to get married and you just want some big fairy tale proposal that you can tell your friends about. I don’t get it and I can’t say I blame him for getting mad at you. A guy who wants to get married doesn’t need to be nagged for a proposal.

You didn’t ruin it, but you should back off a little. Since you’re still feeling bad about it, you should apologize and tell him you totally trust him and don’t want to talk about it anymore. Then you have to follow though. I’m sure your proposal will be totally magical, you just have to let it happen!
