Alas, I was soooo certain I was getting a holiday proposal, but a week or so before found out all his hints were misleading. I must admit I didn’t handle it well, and became slightly depressed for a little while, which made my SO tell me I just got the day wrong and to not expect anything for NYE, Valentines Day, his b-day, and my b-day, all coming up in the next few months.
However, he did say he liked the idea of proposing on our 1 year anniversary this April. I don’t know if it’s a for certain thing, but him telling me it’ll happen next year leaves me feeling more confident than ever.
I hope to all the ladies here that if you didn’t get what you wanted for xmas that you at least have a timeframe (makes the anxiety of waiting much easier!) Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday and best of luck to all those wishing for a NYE proposal!
PS! *I absolutlely LOVE my xmas gift although it wasn’t the ring!* ^_____^
Keep posting all your wonderful proposal stories and congrats to all those who are newly engaged!!!

If you’ve talked about getting engaged and you know its going to happen this upcoming year, I would try to leave it alone. My good friend got very upset when her boyfriend didn’t propose over the holidays (he felt it was very cliche and not as special) and it eventually led to their separation. She found out shortly after they had broken up that he was planning on a special “random weekend” that would completely surprise her.
If you’ve spoken with him about it, and you know its coming, he could just be misleading you so that you are completely surprised. Try not to press the issue and I hope that it is very special for you!

I know how you feel and I’m so sorry. I will say that you should indeed be happy that you have a timeline. I don’t have one of those and to me a timeline would be as good as the actual proposal.
He could very well be trying to throw you off track. Sort of sounds that way to me….

I am glad you have a timeline whether it is for real or he is using it to throw you off. I find timelines a lot easier to deal with than just a blind “it will happen, be patient” response. Good luck and keep us posted.
