Been there.

I really thought it was gunna happen on our 5 year anniversary. He made SUCH a big deal about our date I thought for sure he was gonna propose. I was REALLY far off though, cuz I didn’t even get a card that year. He was just really excited about dinner…

Men can be so dumb sometimes.

This thread makes me happy and sad lol.

I like giggling at some of your stories and others i just feel for, i can totally imagine building up my hopes and then trying to not burst out crying in front of him!

I havent had any of these moments yet. I have thought “this is a perfect time to propose” or “that would be a great spot” or whatever but never had that OMG IS THIS GONNA HAPPEN?!

as we get closer, i am sure i will start to have those and i dont know if i will be able to hold it together lol.

We are going on a quick vacation next weekend and I am really trying to NOT get my hopes up… I could have a great proposal story in a week or a great let down story.


fingers are crossed… 4.5 years in, ring is at the jewelers (not sure how long it takes to complete)

I was sure my FI was going to propose on a long weekend away last december, EVERYONE was telling me how it was such a romantic place and he would defintiely propose.. then he invited his 2 male friends to come along last minute and it went down hill from there.. I was so disspointed and it was the worst going into work afterwards with everyone expecting a ring!!

He did actually propse about 5 months later on holiday in Hawaii, which I was actually so shocked about.. i learnt my lesson from the previous disspointment that it wasnt worth the upset and he would do it when he felt right.. I was so chilled and relaxed when he proposed all i could say was ‘are you serious’ even though he was their on one knee with a ring!

redheadbee77 :   our 2nd anniversary. We booked a hotel, went to a nice restaurant, he was asking me about where I wanted to get married. The month before our anniversary, he took me to pick out my ring. We saw a couple getting married at the hotel we were staying at and he was telling me stuff like “You’re going to have to start thinking about our wedding soon!” I thought this is it!!!! I had my nails done and everything. Then nothing. I was pretty upset. Turns out he was still planning and making everything just perfect, and planning on proposing the next month!!
