I know what you mean! My guy talked to my parents months ago (at the end of May) and no ring yet!! “But I agree with vistagirl- now you know to be prepared. Try to play it cool- he may just start planning events every once in a while to throw you off.

But I hope he proposes soon! Keep us updated.

@peaches13:My mom is a blabbermouth, too! My guy didn’t ask my dad, but he did tell my mom about it and asked her to help him to get my ring size! I actually kind of wish I didn’t know when it was going to happen, but my guy has been away for 7 weeks in military and is coming home in a couple weeks for only 7 days before he deploys for 10 months! He already bought the ring, so I KNOW it’s gunna happen somewhere in those 7 days and I really wish I didn’t know! I don’t wanna have to lie to him and pretend to be surprised, but he’d be crushed otherwise Frown

That’s a huge step that he asked your dad. Awesome. Excited for you!
God I can’t even imagine how much that amps up the anticipation…like knowing the ring is in the house. My head would be spinning.

Ah! That’s fabulous news that he asked you dad! Not to drive you more crazy, but I found out after the fact that my Fiance asked my family permission and got the ring 3 MONTHS before he actually asked me… so glad I didn’t know! I would have gone nuts!!

I would LOVE IT if I knew that my b/f asked my dad, are you kidding me?!?!? It would be such a relief and a huge burden would be lifted off my shoulders. It would tell me that a proposal isn’t too far off and I wouldn’t have to be sitting here waiting and wondering when my b/f would get his arse in gear!

GVD.

Not to make you completely defeated but my Fiance asked my parents in December and proposed in April. He wanted it to be perfect and waited for the right moment.

Luckily I did not know!!! My heart goes out to you – I don’t know what I would do if I had known.

@NEYbee: On the flip side, I was engaged within a week of my now Fiance talking to my dad.  Depends on your guy and his patience level, I guess.  And even though I knew it was coming, it was still special–and he still managed to surprise me!
