Who is hoping/waiting for an October proposal?? I know that I am (very wishfully) hoping. I know he has the ring all picked out/ordered, and I am going up to visit him for Columbus Day, so maybe it will happen then. More than likely though, I think he’s going to surprise me for my birthday at the end of the month!
Anyone else with me?!

@Hope_To_Be_MrsLovebug: I have a tentative “by anniversary”-ish timeline! Early October!

I’d love to be proposed to in October, because he’s acting so excited since he spoke to my dad for his blessing, but it will probably still be Thanksgiving weekend in November when we go up to the mountains.

I am hoping he’ll propose on our 6 year anniversary (Oct 27), but I’m not sure if he’s going to make me wait ’till closer to Christmas/NYE

I HOPE so. But I have a feeling he may wait until our family trip to Napa Valley in November. Good luck!

I think it’ll happen in October. My timeline was “by the end of summer” which finished already lol. Ring should be hitting the setters hands in a few days I think, let’s see

me I think! My boyfriend asked my dad this weekend, and he’s openly looking at rings on the internet and reading about diamonds while sitting next to me on the couch on his computer – and keeps telling me how hard it is to get an appt at the jeweler I like – who has an appointment-only showroom (they are a kinda annoying place, but have only conflict free gems and all recycled metals and he knows that’s important to me). So, depending on if he picks a pre-made ring or does some special order, I HOPE it’s October!

I hope so but am not sure. My timeline is ‘soon’, but he spent months planning a surprise destination vacation for me the first week in Oct, so I’m hopeful that’s it! He recently told me the destination (my dad is sick so I wanted to leave contact info w mom just incase). We are going to the Albuqeurque ht air balloon festival… How perfect would that be!?
dont want to get my hopes up, but WHO spends months planning a surprise vacation to ride hot air balloons and doesn’t propose!? Never know though, men don’t get it sometimes…. Ha!

I think it will be October. Although who knows really. This past Sunday SO admitted to be in the “moment” and ready however the ring was tony beside him. When he did go get it, the “moment” didn’t return. So I really have no clue anymore lol

@love108: Ahh yay! That would be such a romantic anniversary surprise :]
@Torrid: Haha yeah. Mine may not happen until November either…But we can always hope, right?!
@stargazer102706: That would be so sweet. I am sure you are ready for it to happen and he is too, so he will make it perfect whenever it does finally happen.
@Meant2Bee: Good luck to you too! I am starting to think the birthday surprise may be out now, because he literally told me he CANNOT come down and not to get my hopes up..So I guess we’ll see…I know for a fact he’s purchased the ring though!
@Quackadoo: Haha I LOVE your screenname! And yes, the end of summer is definitely here…Good luck!
@boardersarita: Ahh! How exciting! Do you prefer custom-made or the pre-made rings? Have you shown him what you like, or is he surprising you?!
@Sa7208: Hot air balloons?! hmm…I smell a proposal definitely coming your way in the near future! And I LOVE hot air balloon proposals. They are so romantic.
@Lulume: I’m confused…What does your SO mean by “The Moment”? So he has the ring but is just waiting for the right time to propose now??

I’m also waiting on October… I think! He has the ring and he says he has a plan. We talk about it very openly and I keep saying is “is it soon?’ and he says “yes, VERY soon.” But I don’t think our ideas of “very soon” are the same! He’s had the ring 3 weeks, and has been saying that the whole time. Oh well, it’s a much needed lesson in patience!
@Sa7208: The hot air balloon fest sounds so perfect! That has to be it 🙂

Quick poll for the October hopefulls:
Is it harder to look at the calendar and think “It could be this weekend!” or harder when you know there’s a reason it *won’t* be this weekend?
I.e. One weekend in October we are going to a family birthday party and another we are going to a wedding. I don’t think he’d want to steal anyone else’s thunder. So I think I’ll be a little sad when I know there isn’t a chance of a proposal that week, but on the other hand I’ll be able to relax!
