Of indifference, excitement, and nervousness. My SO turned 30 last week and I’ve been crazy busy with my own projects and planning over the last month for his big day that I hadn’t really thought about the whens and how we’d get engaged. Well, that’s all over with. Now all that’s left is a wedding we’re attending in 2 weeks, my birthday in May and our anniversary in June. Kinda wishing I still had his birthday to plan for because it was nice being so distracted I didn’t have a chance to get nervous. Suddenly it was like BAM! What if he proposed at the wedding? BAM! What if he proposed on my birthday? BAM! What if he proposed on our anniversary? BAM! Remember the lady at Kay’s said they were having a special event on May 11th?
And it’s not a “I don’t think he’s going to propose” or a “He’s not doing it soon enough” or “He won’t do it right” nervousness. It’s just nervousness. Straight up. And it just happened the second he left today. It’s such a big thing. And while I don’t have a dream proposal I am curious as to how he’ll decide to do it (he can be suprisingly creative). Part of me wonders if it’s the universe sending me some predictive vibes or maybe my hormones are out of whack this evening. 🙂
To the married ladies: Did you guys get any vibes shortly before it happened?
To the waiting ladies: Are you guys predicting any spring/early summer proposals? And if you are, do you hope that it happens a certain way or anything you hope he doesn’t do for the proposal?

I had no clue it was going to happen- I honestly did not know it was going to happen until I went through his pockets and felt the ring box. I had that same nervousness when I finally realized he was ready and just waiting to get the money for the ring. It died down after a while and turned into anxiousness to get engaged.

I’m predicting a proposal early summer. SO said he was going to propose sometime this summer but he likes to throw me off so I think it’s going to be late spring/early summer sometime.
All I requested of him is that when proposed that none of our family is involved. I want it to just be us and our special moment and he agreed to that. Other than that I’m not worried. =)

I’m in the anticipation stage too. He and I went to the jeweler on Saturday where I was sized and he put down a deposit. I told him he couldn’t ask me until after grad school was done, which is May 5. Now I can’t stop thinking about when he’ll do it!! I created such a window that was relieving before (I don’t have to think about it until May!), but now that it’s close, I feel like I won’t stop thinking about it between now and the end of June (by which time he’ll likely have proposed)… I feel like my anticipation about it will ruin the surprise because I know when to expect it! Luckily, he’s really great at surprising me, so I hope he puts a lot of effort into this surprise and is able to throw me off!
