So we originally had a 6 month timeline which changed to before summer (so five-ish months) but last night we were talking about something unrelated and he accidentally let it slip he had plans to do it Monday (tomorrow) but now he’s not because he accidentally told me. He’s bummed because he told all his family and friends and we were supposed to go celebrate tomorrow night but now we aren’t. I was being good about not bringing it up and it still ended up ruined. He said it won’t be that long and it’s just being postponed but I’m worried it won’t happen because he won’t do it unless it’s a surprise but he can’t keep his trap shut about it. He even told me while I was at work the other day, he kept getting the ring out and practicing what he was going to say.. it’s so cute but SO frustrating lol. Still, I’m trying to not be that naggy but it’s harder knowing it was so close and now it’s not happening for a while.

@Monicaab: Poor Guy!!!! I wouldnt be too upset or annoyed, just avoid the subject over the next few days/weeks and change the subject super quick if you think he might slip up. Give him time to plan and get ready! At least you know that it is right around the corner! Since he can’t keep a secret, its bound to happen soon, haha. Hang in there 🙂

He probably told you he was planning it for tomorrow to throw you off…I doubt he ruined his own surprise by bringing it up on his own lol

@Monicaab: I think your SO should join the Shut-it-up pact 😉
I’m sorry, that’s such a bummer. I’d be upset, too… but the good news is that you know he is ready! Hopefully you won’t have to wait much longer. It’s possible that, since he said he can’t do it now, he might still do it anyway, or else really soon. He might think you won’t expect it now. Either way, try not to get your hopes up, but I’ll be keeping my fingers crossed for you!

I don’t think he was throwing me off because he got really mad at himself for letting it slip and I know he almost mentioned it a couple times yesterday and I was like no please don’t. But then it came out later anyways. I think he’s more excited than I am lol

Awwwww that is so sweet! I would imagine his excitement and likelihood of letting it slip will mean he will want to propose soon rather than later, so hopefully it wont be too long now! x
