So my birthday is coming up on the 16th! My Boyfriend or Best Friend already has my gift. He wont even drop a hint to me about what it is! The other night I was spending some time with his mom and she gave me 2 hints, which were: It’s not going to cost him anything….right now. And it’s something that wil require team effort.
Now…A couple months back, BF’s Grandmother told him that if he ever wanted to get me the engagement ring of my dreams, and he couldn’t afford it, she would pay for it, and he could pay her back whenever. Hence the not costing anything RIGHT NOW. And, what marriage doesn’t require team effort, right?!??!
Am I totally crazy for thinking he might actualy propose on my birthday??? What does it sound like to you. Can you guys think of anything else it might be to put my mind at ease?!?

Well…with these hints, I’d think it was a proposal. BUT, it’s just a little more than a week until your birthday, so try to keep the anticipation in perspective, just in case it isn’t.
If it’s not a proposal though, let us know what it is, because I want to know what the hints are referring to.
Happy Early Birthday!

I also forgot to add that Boyfriend or Best Friend has said multiple times that he will NEVER propose on a special occassion or holiday. So that has me thrown off too…But that could also be his clever thinking, trying to make me think he wouldn’t be proposing on that day, just so it would be a complete surprise!

Well….. sure it could be. But think about how devastated you’re going to be if it’s not now. Just keep an open mind and try to convince yourself that’s not it! 😉

I was right there with you last month! I didn’t have as good “hints” regarding presents, but it’s natural to think that a special occasion may bring a proposal…and you may feel a little bit let-down if it doesn’t happen.
He’s said he wouldn’t do it on a special occasion, and yes that may be just to throw you off. On the other hand, if he does want it to be a complete surprise it would be best to try to be excited for his surprise while not expecting the proposal. He could have a really wonderful/elaborate surprise that is NOT a proposal and you don’t want to be too disappointed….he could propose to you the date *after* your birthday or something 🙂
