eeeeee888888:  Early congratulations. I knew my Fiance was going to propose and we went and looked at rings together. I feel like most women should have an idea that a proposal is coming because I think it’s important to discuss marriage before actually getting engaged.

I feel like the majority of women know a proposal is imminent when it happens.  So many couples pick out rings together and discuss marriage before the proposal happens (as they should), so the proposal day may be a surprise, but the fact that a proposal is happening isn’t really all that shocking.

I think nowadays most proposals are not really a surprise because:

1. Talking about marriage before getting engaged is an evidence of good communication in the relationship and that you both feel this way.

2. That’s it. I think this is a very modern way to plan the marriage. You get the ring that you 100% like and you already knew that you love each other and want to spend your lives together. I know I am getting engaged soon because I introduced the topic myself once we moved in together this September. We agreed that when the financial situation is better, he would get a ring and ask me. I don’t know much, just he confessed that the stone is already with the jeweler now, so I am really getting impatient now and lurking on weddingbee all Sunday! I bet that when your boyfriend finally proposes, you will still be surprised and moved. 🙂

Early congrats! It was the same way for us. I picked out my engagement ring in November 2015. It was a special order so it took a while to get in. But, Fiance did not end up proposing until April 2016 due to all of the planning/organizing he did (surprise engagement party after the proposal). Hopefully you don’t have to wait 6 months, but if you do, it will be worth it.
