Fiance had the ring and had planned a time. His best advice to all men is f*** the time just do it whenever it feels right. Mine was at 5 am and I nearly hit him for waking me up, then I saw the ring lol. I dont think it needs to be any big event just when he feels comfortable and not have the additional stress behind him. Just let him be and just make yourself available to it. Have a camera in your purse for pictures afterwards too.

TRY AND FORGET!!

It’s hard, but I wish I had. I didn’t even really have any clues, I just had a feeling it was coming. I walked up to my aparment one day after work and just had that feeling that he was going to be inside and do it, and what do you know? It was obviously still amazing, but I wish I hadn’t had the feeling.

So please don’t try and spend every day wondering! I PROMISE, once you are engaged, you don’t care how long you waited. You KNOW it’s coming, so just try and forget and don’t think about it at all! Find osmething to keep you busy, whether it’s a hobby, books, movies, exercising, etc. And please don’t come up with some elaborate dream proposal because you will probably end up disappointed!

It’s hard to do but you just need to be patient! I know it’s not easy, but take this time to relax and really enjoy this ending stage of your relationship. I knew my rings were purchased and although it took several weeks for him to propose afterwards, I ruined the time for me… and a bit for him too, I think. My biggest regret regarding the proposal was not appreciating the relationship for where it was at and the significance of it coming to an end (and entering into new engagement territory). I would honestly not even bring it up again and try your hardest to not even think about it directly.

@kerri13:  Thank god Fiance didnt wait till the whale watching tour. He ended up being sea sick the entire time. Dream proposal just a bad idea all together. He could have popped out of nowhere while I was doing dishes and youd still be happy.

I ruined any chance of my Fiance proposing romantically. Best advice- seriously forget about it. I couldn’t. My proposal, though I’m glad it happened, is the most lame boring story ever. You don’t want that. Find someone to talk to about it, other than him.

Try not to think about it.  Trust me.  I was in your postition exactly 4 weeks ago.  My now Fiance was acting very suspiciously and I was pretty sure he bought a ring.  Then I figured out when he would probably propose (just out of logic) and at first it was torture!

But then I got busy with work and stuff that the time flew by very quickly and before I knew it he actually proposed!  The time passes by much much faster when you are not thinking about it.  But if you sit there spending your time just thinking about it, then the time is going to pass painfully slow and you will drive yourself insane!!!

Try to busy yourself with a bunch of things to do.  Don’t talk to people about how you think he is going to propose at the time you think he will.  Just try and focus on other things, and before you know it, it will happen and it will all feel like a dream. And you won’t even remember how long you had to wait or how painful it was at times.  You’ll just be happy you did wait 🙂
