Hello ladies. Im a newbee…although ive been a longtime lurker.
I thought seeing as I am still a waiting lady, I might as well just post on the waiting board about what happened yesterday.
So me and my wonderful BF have been talking some serious wedding and engagement stuff the last 3 months…he brings it up first all the time. We basically talk about something wedding-related evey day. So I am very much excited to know he is serious about us and that he wants us to be engaged just as much as I do.
Although we talk about it all the time, I dont have a day/month that I know my BF wants to propose. All he keeps saying is ” I make you a promise: before the end of this year you’ll be an engaged lady” =D which is soooo exciting. Im not presurring him at all. I trust him with my entire world, so I knew if he promised it, it will happen before the end of the year.
then yesterday happened…we were just hanging out at his house, and I quickly wanted to let our married couple friends know what the arrangements will be for the next evening (the 4 of us hang out alone once a week). So i took his phone and went into his email accoutn seeing as we usually correspond to them via HIS email account. And my eye caught sight of the last relpy he sent to this married couple. I opened it, because i was about to send them a message, and the last reply he sent her (my best friend) was saying: “Im thinking of proposing to her the week after we visited her parents, but keep it quiet. Maybe you should lead her astray and sometime mention something like Ive been thinking of proposing in November/December. I just dont know HOW to propose to her yet!”
AAAAAAAAAH!!! We visiting my parents the weekend of the 20th of July!!!!! That means he’s planning on proposing in about 2weeks time!!!
I feel kind of bad that I saw the message, and that I read it. But it was an honest mistake. As i wasnt “snooping”. I literally wanted to send that specific couple our plans for meeting them the next evening.
So…now…I know he’s planning on proposing within the next 2/3weeks. I dont know how to react. I want it to be a surprise and everything.
How do I react from now onwards? Talking about our engagement makes me anxious (in a good way) because whenever he says to me “by the end of this year…” Im thinking “yeah right…more like by the end of this month…” lol.
Have any of you done something similar? Or found out accidentally about his plans?
Sorry its so long

i guessed the date, but because it was our 3 year dating anniversary, he narrowed the timeframe down for me to the first half of this year and i figured out the significant events in that time, our dating anniversary was first (January 19th) and I was right 🙂

@Jacqui90: Its exciting…but also nerve wrecking…I feel like Im fake when we talk about the engagement. Now all of a sudden I have to act like I really do not know anything…lol. Difficult for a woman in general 😉

Congratulations! Just try to act normal, lol. It could cause trouble if he realizes you know. I don’t know if you can, but try to push it out of your mind. I HATE being disappointed, so I would tell myself that something might come up where he actually can’t propose until December. I’m weird though… o.o

@Sutaru: lol…Ive been doing that through the entire day, but whenever I find myself, my mind flashes the email I saw last night, and then I go all freaking out from the beginning. (>.<) eeek!!

@Miss_smiles: That’s SOO exciting! I can’t even imagine how I would hide knowing that information! I give you credit! haha. Just try to keep it out of your mind! Hey atleast you don’t know the exact day and how hes going to do it!
Good luck..keep us posted!!

Yes, it is a good thing you don’t know the exact day! And it was an honest mistake, but I wouldn’t let him know. This is the ‘guy’s only time’ to do something big!
My boyfriend always has the mindset of not to get excited about things to make sure you don’t get disappointed, so maybe try this? I know it’s ridiculously tough! I would be on cloud-9 if I knew a more specific time! I’m assuming within 6 months by the way my boyfriend is dropping hints.
YAY! Congratulations for the impending proposal!!

All i can say to this is : EEEEEEK!!!!!
OMG you must be so excited !!! I would be freaking out and had a permanent smile on my face 🙂
I so wish I was at that stage now LOL
My SO is at “looking for a ring” stage as he plans on proposing this year.
I kinda thought he had it narrowed two two rings 2 weeks ago because i saw pictures by mistake on his phone in front of him. But this week I caught him twice on lurking at web sites and quickly closing them up when I entered the room.
I was kinda worried because my last boyfriend did that cuz he was looking at XXX sites. So last night I asked him about how happy he is in our relationship and if he is pleased with our intimate life etc…. pretty much expressed my concern due to my past relationship. He laughed, called me a pain in the butt and said he was looking at rings because he hasn’t decided yet!
I started laughing and just cuddled 🙂

I accidentally snooped a few months ago. I was messing around on SO’s iPad and saw a few jewelry websites in his history when I went to type in an address. Oops! Haven’t seen anything since then…I think he’s figured out that I’m a super-sleuth.

First off..YAY! lol But yes, I had a feeling he was going to propose on our trip…but he convinced me that he was waiting to get up some more money for the ring…so that really thew me! So when he actually did it, I really was shocked
