@FutureMrs.browneyes:  Yah, my groom did that too.  He asked both of my parents right before…. b/c he knew they’d let it slip.  He was worried b/c he couldn’t get ahold of my mom.  She called him back and he looked at the phone and was like… oh that’s weird, this is not even an Indiana phone number…weird.  I did have a bit of a clue- I just assumed I was looking too into something (not that I EVER do that…lol).  We went to Smokey Mt. National Park and he found exactly the spot he wanted to do it (he had this somehow planned out… using his childhood memory as a resource lol).  When we got out i did see a box in his pocket… but shhhhh I’ll never tell him that!!!!  I was sooo excited, and still thought i was looking too into everything…. and then… the moment!!!!  I wanted to jump up and down but we were on a slippery creek-bed.

hehehe, you sound like me. I had been waiting 9 years for my boyfriend to put a ring on it. For the longest time we were talking about getting married, having kids, living together, the whole sha-bang, but the ring never came till earlier this week. Now everything is starting to come together. Good things happen for those who wait ๐Ÿ™‚ 

Good luck with everything!!!

He def sounds like a man with a plan!!! Let’s face it this is one of the few things in life we let our men have complete control over, so they like to relish in it!! I owuld def recomment MR.Bee’s Pact in the meantime! And just enjoy the suspense! Sometimes I worry that the waiting and guessing will be more exciting that the reality!!

Goodness, this sounds EXACTLY like my story!!!  He finally proposed in November (on our 6 year anniversary) and I went through the same bouts of getting some hints, then waiting, waiting, waiting… then letting the stress of waiting spill out, and then getting more information than I wanted (I wanted it to be a total surprise yet I didn’t want to wait – never a great combo haha) – which then made me cry even more, just like you!!!  It was in total about a year and a half of the ups and downs of waiting until he popped the question, but he dropped the same little hints to me like your bf seems to be doing.  I really wonder just how fun that is for them, to watch us fight the urge to show JUST how excited we are that he’s bringing anything remotely related up!!  Though there was reason it took a year and a half; I relocated back home (several states away) due to a family emergency, started fresh without him for several months, he moved in with me without a job (couldn’t make any progress in the job market being so far away) and was unemployed for three months, AND we took advantage of the housing market and purchased a new home in May… I wouldn’t count on waiting so long in your position! ๐Ÿ™‚  

Anyway, I totally feel for you and your anticipation ๐Ÿ™‚  To me it sounds like he does have the ring already, but you should definitely try tell yourself otherwise!!!  My best advice is to not drive yourself nuts assuming he has it and then get your hopes up any time you do anything slightly out of the ordinary.  It’s so hard to be patient enough, I remember hearing about a new couple who got engaged pretty much every month – which didn’t do either of us any favors.  I’m excited to hear your story, stay strong while you wait!! ๐Ÿ™‚

Ok, try not to think about when and how because the best part of him popping the question is that he gets to actually “pop” the question! It will be even more of a memorable moment if you are completely suprised when he asks you! If your constantly watching his every move it will be even more difficult for him to suprise you. My advice would be to find something else to focus on for now to keep your mind off it for a bit, and start saving some extra cash if and when you can be a step ahead weddings add up fast! Be happy you both seem to be in the same boat about where you want to be in the future that’s great! Hope I helped and good luck!!

He def has a plan so just start thinking of other things. My Fiance and I went to look at rings randomly and just left it at that. Little did I know he went back the very next week and bought it, but he didn’t want to purpose to me until the entire ring and diamond was paid completely off…he even picked out my wedding band for me. It took him roughly 5 months to pay it off and I never knew about it.

I’d also like to note that his best friend went ring shopping as well and knew he was wanting to purpose to his Fiance, but he had this elaborate plan to do it in the summer and Kaitlyn (his FI) was getting antsy (they had been dating for 8 years!) so he ended up doing it early. He was a little disappointed that he didn’t get to do his first plan, but he didn’t want Kaitlyn to get upset when I got engaged before her. (She really is cool and its a long story, but I don’t want to give the impression that she would throw a fit if I got engaged before her, but she would’ve been disappointed).

I was with my FH for 4.5 years when we moved in together and I told him that I wouldn’t give my apartment notice of me leaving without having a ring. He told me that things will happen when they are supposed to. The whole past year I was at his house all the time and wasted money keeping my apartment. I moved into his house and two weeks later he proposed. I guess he had to show me that he will make the decision and will not be forced.  He proposed on February 1st and come to find out he had the ring since before Thanksgiving.

I say just let the man do what he pleases. You definitely don’t want to mess up a proposal so just relax and it will happen when it is supposed to.
