Haha! I know how you feel!! After we picked out the ring, and I knew it was in the house, I was the same way, but on a daily basis! He’d call me upstairs or something, and I’d check my hair and consider changing my outfit and he’d want help taking the trash out or something! I would laugh and just get excited for the next event! 

And TBH, the one night I didn’t expect it is the night he did it!

I did the same thing, and the suspense really is sort of fun.  There was one night when we were in the car leaving FH’s parents’ house, and he goes, “I have something for you.  It’s small, and metal.”  And I looked at him with eyes as big as dinner plates, and he was super confused and goes “what’s your deal?”  It was a beer bottle cap he had squished in half into a little taco, cause he knows I think it’s funny when he does that, lol.  Whoooooops.

I’ve been doing the same thing lately! A couple months ago he left a post-it note on our dresser with a bunch of ring specs written on it, so my mind started racing. We went to Chicago a couple weeks later and I was almost positive he was going to propose. Nope! I’ve had a couple other “this is it!” moments since then but no dice. My nails, hair, and makeup are pretty much always done whenever we leave the house, just in case haha. We’re going to Boston next week, so maybe then! We’ll see.

I loved reading your post. I feel like I have been disappointed lately because I know its coming and hasn’t yet. I am the worst at keeping secrets and can’t wait until I can tell everyone the good news. I think I need to just change my outlook and make it fun like you mentioned. What are great attitude you have!!

I love your attitude!! I’m going to try and adopt it while I wait for a proposal! Last night So asked me if I had any work to do in the evening today because he had a present for me. I got really excited and didn’t want to spoil the surprise so I didn’t ask any questions. He started giving me hints like it’ll take a little manual labor and it’ll fix the issue of the dog digging holes. I was pretty sure by that time that it wasn’t a proposal so I asked what it was and it turns out that he got some sod for us to lay in the yard to fix our grass hahahaha. I just had to laugh at myself lol.

wcky711 :  I absolutely LOVE your attitude about this! Most of us bees (including) myself make ourselves miserable with the waiting and anticipating. I am going to try to look at it in a more positive light, like you!

I’m so glad you posted!!! I have been getting bogged down with the anxiety and excitement of “is this it” only for it not to be the time yet.. Now, I’m going to try my absolute hardest to see it the way you do!! Thank you for your positive attitude bee!!

I am one bee who got a very fast proposal so I never had the “waiting period” really. (he told me from day 1 he was going to marry me)

However after he asked for ring size and details he said he had to do it early to not tip me off to the time.

I was 100% certain he was proposing this month, on his first visit to my country (LDR) and was picking nice places to take him so he could do it ๐Ÿ˜‚

He completely blindsided me and did it back in August the day after I met his family!!! I totally thought I had it all sussed out – we are both competitive too lol. He was so chuffed I had no idea. We had 2 flights across the US where he had the ring in his pocket!!
