My SO asked me to make a wishlist for my birthday (we always make wishlist.com lists for gift giving occasions) and I totally put an engagement ring on it. It was mixed along side of other stuff, but there it was (I didn’t get it! booo!!).. Also, I work in the wedding industry (as a photographer) and whenever I come home from a shoot and he asks me how work was I always mention a thing or two I would have done differently. I’m pretty sure he’s oblivious to that being any kind of a hint though. lol.

I very obviously look at wedding sites in front of him and mention it all the time. 

I am not a very subtle person by nature Laughing it’s probably making my wait longer but I can’t help myself!

I also preface any wedding related question that I want to ask him with “can I ask you a question?” and a little smile. It’s our little joke now…

1.  He mentions all the time what we can put on a wedding registry. 

2.  He talks about my engagement ring. (Funny because he has it GRRR lol)

3.  He’s already fake proposed a couple of times

4. I’m not a very subtle person either so I just talk about it anyway

@katiebeary I’m with you I also am beginning to hate the term boyfriend (seriously we aren’t in high school or even college for that matter)  We are adults time to fix that problem!

@happy2bee: SO calls me his “partner” – if he knows the time for calling me his girlfriend is over then he TOTALLY needs to propose πŸ™‚

 We talk about marrige a lot but yesterday my Sweetheart came home and said “how is my bride to be?” My ears perked up!!! Does he know something I dont???!! I always look at wedding sites online in front of him so its no secret I am waiting and brainstorming! πŸ™‚

We are going on a cruise for my 30th bday in Jan, my friends think it will be then. I am secretly hoping its sooner.

I’m not very subtle.  I straight talk about it.  lol But in my defense he’s told me to start planning.  Before though I’d slip it into conversations about so and so getting engaged and what I’ve seen of good ‘ol facebook! 

@katiebeary:  My SO teases me now and instead of just calling me a pet name he adds “Mrs.” infront of it. ughhhhh.. haha

I’m not a very subtle person. I had several friends get engaged recently, and I always show him pictures of their rings and keep him up-to-date on their wedding planning. Then I’ll ask for his opinion. Then I’ll outright say that I can’t wait to plan our wedding! Haha. He just smiles and shakes his head at me. We’ve discussed possible venues, colors, large wedding vs. small wedding… yeah, I don’t do subtle hints well, haha.

Sometimes I’ll slip up and refer to him as my husband in conversation. He gets a laugh out of it. I can’t help that I already feel married to him. I think that just shows how good we are together and that we should be married πŸ˜€

On the other hand, when he’s talking about me to friends, especially if he knows I’m listening, he’ll refer to me as “wifey.” He knows it drives me crazy!

He’ll also make random references to “our wedding” in conversation. It’s funny. Last night we were grocery shopping and a box of tissues inspired a conversation about wedding colors. We spent 20 minutes trying to find an ideal example of a “peach” color. There we are, in the middle of Walmart at 11 at night, clutching tissue boxes in different colors, while he insisted that peach is orange/yellow, like the peach fruit, and I tried to explain that the color peach is more pinkish.

I guess we’re both terrible at dropping subtle hints!

I have tried to tell myself to stop thinking and wishing for it so much. But it is just soooo hard!!!

Ladies have you thought of what your dream proposal would be??? I have but its not like I can tell him…wish I could plant it in his brain Inception style! Wink
