@ArmyBeee:  I’m not quick on the uptake with stuff like that.  Like I did not know some guys were into me until they flat out said something or tried to kiss me.  I know that my husband wanted to propose/get married, but I had no idea the night he did it.  Even though he was acting like a weird freak.  Haha.

My Fiance opened up his laptop in front of me and his email was open – including an emailfrom a ring designer. He immediately jumped to move it to trash, and stared ranting about spam. Bit of a giveaway! I haven’t had to the heart to tell him that I knew it was coming.

 

He did keep asking me “hypothetically” what ring I’d like, and things like that. Plus he has a habit of fiddling with my hands when we’re cuddled up together on the couch – except he started fiddling with my ring finger. It was his way of working out what size ring to get – I never usually wear rings. Must have worked, the ring fits perfectly!

@ArmyBeee:  the proposal date wasn’t a surprise for me so no, my SO wasn’t acting strange before.  since i knew the general idea of when it was, i would tell him my plans so he wouldn’t have to ask.  when the proposal didn’t happen the weekend i thought it might, i knew it was going to be the next weekend, and it was.

For over two years, on every ‘special occasion’, I expected him to ask.  He did not.  2-3 times a year, I would have a major break-down & ask why he didn’t want to marry me…didn’t he really love me…yadda yadda yadda.  LOL  The last time this happened was the morning after Valentine’s Day.  We went out for a lovely meal & a movie.  And it didn’t happen.  As he was going off to work the next morning, I started blubbering once AGAIN.  Told a girlfriend about it, and she said: “You’re an ***hole.”  She’s right.  I totally was.  LOL  I was convinced that I blew it.  After 6 years together, he SURELY had put up with enough, and would be hitting the road soon.  *happy sigh*  I was wrong.

 

 

We went up to Washington State to visit my sister the last week in March.  It happened.  Total surprise!  (to both me AND my sis)  Turns out he had been looking at rings for THREE YEARS, and had been carrying ‘the one’ around in his pocket for about 3 weeks.  So happy I didn’t scare him off!  LOL  I truly had no idea.  That’s what I get for not being nosy, I guess.  hehe

@ArmyBeee:  We had been dating for shortly over 5 years when he proposed on Christmas Eve 2011. We both knew for a few years that we were definitely going to end up getting married at some point and the whole nine yards so the proposal in general wasn’t a surprise, but the thing is that I work at my dad’s jewelry store so I knew which ring was mine and I knew the day that it disappeared out of the case. (LOL!) I think he held onto it for about a month or so. Like a lot of other ladies, I expected it to happen just about every special occasion, especially for our anniversary the month prior to it happening. I was so happy when we finally did. We’ll be getting married on our 7 year ‘anniversary’ this Nov. πŸ™‚ He didn’t do any “little things” out of the ordinary that made me know it was coming. He had tons of boxes inside of boxes, and in the last one was a little note to meet him in another room & it had tons of rose petals in it. When I walked into the room he had our song playing, petals on the floor, and all the candles lit. πŸ™‚

@ArmyBeee:  I had NO idea what so ever. And I must say, I’m a very nosey, detail oriented person! I know and remember every little detail of every little thing and I was so un-godly caught off guard and baffled. Somehow, he was REALLY good at being secretive about it!

@katrinamlee:  Even though I was fairly sure a proposal was coming I told myself not to hang all my hopes on it – I didn’t want to be disappointed if it didn’t happen. Probably a good thing because the proposal didn’t happen until several months after I spotters the email. Fiance took me on a surprise trip to Sydney for my birthday. We went out to a lovely restaurant with an amazing view of Sydney Harbour, and he had a quite noticeable ring box shaped lump in his pocket. So I thought it was pretty likely to happen…

 

Nope, the evening passed and nothing. Thank god I didnt make a scene though. The next day we went for a walk in the botanical gardens, and while we were sittinI on the grass in a secluded place he proposed! Turns out he had chickened out the night before because there were too many people aroun and he was scared I’d say no.Bless!

mine did. he would ask things like if i was sure i wanted to be with him forever and if i really loved him. he even went as far as sitting me down literally a day before he proposed and told me he wish he could propose now but wanted to wait a bit longer until he saved more. i kinda suspected but just figured he was hoping i wouldn’t ditch him before we finally got engaged (we’ve been together almost 8 years). 

right before he asked me he started acting super lovey and mushy and then he did it. very surprised! don’t worry about wondering when it will happen… let it happen. it’s the best!

@ArmyBeee:  Definitely don’t hope for/expect it.  It nearly killed me.  LOL  If you know that it is eventually going to happen, just go with it.  As hard as that may be.  *sigh*  

@aliciaspinnet:  Yeah.  My Fiance kinda did the same.  Although NOW I see that there were signs.  The major one was him WANTING to have pictures taken (my sis was behind the camera).  After 6+ years together, I have maybe 5 photos of him.  LOL  Totally a Giant Red Flag.  But I was enjoying the hike (sort of), loving the scenery.  Why would he ask THERE?  He told me that he was afraid I had noticed the box in his pocket.  And also would wonder why he had to take his vaping supply box on the plane, rather than in his checked bag.  Turns out there was a lovely little piece of bling in there!  hehe
