He probably will based on your post, but just try not to have expectations in case he decides to ask at a different time. Just try to enjoy the fact that you’ll be in Paris with him!

I agree with PP — signs seem to point to yes, but try not to overthink it (I know it’s hard!) because you want to have a good time in Paris no matter what. If you can put it out of your mind and just enjoy yourself, it will feel like a wonderful surprise if he does propose then, and if he doesn’t then you’ll just have an amazing time in Paris with the man you love! Win-win in my book 🙂 but I know that’s easier said than done!

I went to Paris a year ago knowing me and SO weren’t going to get engaged and I STILL cried (I’d had a lot of wine) the last night there when I knew for sure there would be no more chances for him to do it (in case he got carried away by the romance of the city).

So I am not going to tell you to not get your hopes up because I know it won’t really work. I will say TRY not to drive yourself crazy about it because really, there COULD be no more perfect place or time for a proposal- even an idiot could figure that out. So hopefully your SO is not an idiot WinkTongue Out

Soo exciting!!! I was in an almost identical position last year – we had gone ring shopping, Mr. W had asked my father for my hand in marriage, and both of our families had gotten together to celebrate Thanksgiving and it was a huge hit. We had booked a trip to NYC for New Years back in July, so everyone was telling me they thought Mr. W was going to propose on the trip. I assumed he would propose at midnight – how romantic, right? And I told a lot of people that I would LOVE for him to propose at the top of the Empire State Building. He did end up proposing on the trip, but not at the time I expected (he proposed mid-day on New Year’s day) or the place (he proposed in Central Park). Since your Boyfriend or Best Friend is acting really goofy, I would guess that he’s going to propose on the trip – but try to stay open-minded about it and let him surprise you! And def post pictures back here whether or not he does… I love Paris!! 

ETA: P.S., welcome to the ‘bee!!

@lulubee3:  fingers crossed for you!! Make sure you enjoy the vacation, not just wait for the ring. BUT ring or no ring, it will be an amazing vacation!!! As for it being cliche….Fiance told me he wouldn’t ever propose on a holiday because it was too cliche….guess when he asked, valentines Day!!! How much more cliche does it get than that???? Lol men!

It’s a tough one, it might be a decoy?  My friend went on a romantic weekend with her other half last year (we all knew a proposal was coming soon) and she ended up really upset when it didn’t happen.  A month or so later they went on a night away in a hotel, whilst driving he said to her can they just have a nice night and drop it with the proposal chat etc because it’s all she spoke about.  That night, at dinner…he popped the question!


My bff is in a similar situation at the moment.  We all know a proposal is soon and we’ve just booked a group (3 couples, all best friends) holiday to Ibiza in June.  I woke up in the middle of the night and texted our other friend saying I’m convinced it’ll be in Ibiza because we’ll all be there (which is kind of a thing in our group, having our pals at our engagement)…BUT I’ve just found out that they’re going on holiday to Paris in March.  Being the super soppy guy that he is we figure that’s where he’ll do it, but I’m torn as to whether it’s a decoy!


On a similar note, here is the CUTEST proposal ever!  A friend of a friend (lets call her Karen) went to Paris with her bf, utterly convinced he would propose & was so jumpy and excited about trying to second guess him…but he didn’t and she got upset.  A while later they went back to Paris, this time she didn’t think anything of it because they’d already been, right? WRONG!  SO they went to that famous bridge where people attach padlocks to show their love.  They had a padlock made, but he said to her that loads of people attach their padlocks there, why don’t they go somewhere nice and attach theirs…then it will be their own special place.  So they head towards a nice park they’d spotted earlier in the holiday and they suggest putting their padlock by a massive tree (which had a fence around it).  As they get closer she gets kinda bummed because there’s already a padlock on it, he suggests she reads it and it says…”Karen, will you marry me?” and he’s bent down on one knee with a ring!!!  Altogether now….aaaaawww
