He’s acting kind of weird – not too weird, but he’s just been saying things tonight that he’s never said.
We’re going to have the ring made tomorrow (and the plan is that he’ll hold onto it until he wants to propse). When he came home, he said “tomorrow’s the day, you better be ready (know which ring I want). It could happen tomorrow, it could even happen without a ring, it could happen TONIGHT. You never know.”
And he’s randomly said “you never know” a few times tonight when we weren’t even talking about the ring or anything wedding-related.
He RARELY gets into proposal talk unless I bring it up, so this is kind of out of character. Maybe it’s just because we’re going tomorrow?
In any case, I’m super excited to get the ring made – and tonight’s been fun 🙂

@lumos: Well that certainly sounds promising to me! If my Boyfriend or Best Friend said those things, I would DEFINTELY think a proposal is right around the corner!
Keep us posted!

@CarolinaCola: I will!
@MissPeanutButter: Totally! (One would hope, haha)
He said something else that was a bit funny – I was semi-stressing about having to make a final decision about which ring I want and wondering if I should have tried on more, and instead of talking about rings like I was, he said “well, I’m excited about our present, and our future” in a kind of joking tone – But, I wonder if he just wanted to end the conversation with something that’d make me smile so he could just get to bed.
He says he has an early dentist appointment tomorrow before we meet to go to the jeweler, but when I asked if he wanted company since tomorrow’s my day off and he has to go back to work after (I thought it’d be nice to squeeze in some extra time in the morning), he insisted that I sleep in and he said another strange and out of context thing: “it’ll be good”. What’ll be good? Kind of weird for him to say that on my behalf about sleeping in, no?
Aljfoeaijfelakjfoeaikjfaeiodchkeniukejh!! – Momentary excitement.
Not getting my hope up..

@lumos: AHHH good luck!! I hope everything works out as you’re imagining it! I’m having a similar situation, only my SO is talking Saturday. He keeps running mysterious “errands” that he won’t elaborate on and then today, out of the blue, he said don’t plan anything for Saturday. We’re doing something. When I ask what, he says, “I can’t tell you.” And his eyes get all darty, lol. I’m simultaneously super happy and really depressed, because soon after he has to go away on a work trip again. Sigh! I don’t want his work situation to ruin a perfectly wonderful moment, but it’s really hard not to think about! lumos, keep us updated!

Ahhh that is so exciting. I was in the same boat just less than two weeks ago. Seems like he is up to something (from my experience, guys aren’t very good at hiding things :)) good luck and keep us posted!

@LizLemon: That DOES sound suspicious! I’m excited for you!!
@grapefruitlove: I remember reading about you getting engaged! – Do you think you’ll post your proposal story?
I also realized another suspicious thing just now: up until tonight, he’s always said that he’d hold onto the ring for a while, and that he’d likely propose in the Winter (and he sometimes specified with “Christmas”) – he’s never said the kinds of things he’s said tonight, and he also knows I tend to get excited about things so he’s usually really careful not to say something that’ll get my hopes up…
… I really wanted to insert an “Eeeeeeee!!” there, but *ahem* hopes are not up. Nope. No way.

@lumos: so, to give you a bit of a back story…we looked at rings last DECEMBER (he had a very good idea of what I wanted and it was a simple style). But then- nothing! I was so confused as to why we had even bothered to look at rings if there were no plans to get engaged soon. So I spent some time being a bit frustrated but then I decided to forget about it because I would drive myself crazy. I knew we would eventually get engaged but I just figured he had changed his mind about the timing of it all (I knew he was extremely stressed at work, too).
Anyway, we decided to go on a last minute spontaneous trip and I picked Vegas. I definitely did not think he was going to propose there as my family is pretty traditional and I thought they’d be around maybe after the proposal or something. So we had an amazing time in Vegas and did all this really semi-romantic random stuff (his suggestions, which is not normal)- things like a gondola ride and going to see the sharks (I love sharks)…on one of the nights we were out cause Benny Benassi was going to be DJing..it was like 11 pm and I asked the bartender what time he was going to be on and they said 1 am so I was just like can we go upstairs please (we were staying at the Cosmopolitan which is absolutely gorgeous btw)- I was really tired and wanted to just come back later…so we are hanging out on our balcony (they upgraded us to a suite :)) and I saw an ad for a wedding chapel so I started joking around about how we should just get married in Vegas…and he reached into his pocket and was like if we are going to get married you are going to need this…then he asked me and there were tears, etc, etc,
I nearly died! turns out he had the ring in his pocket for like two days but could never find the right moment. I was so happy he did not do it on the gondola ride (that is just not us at all- picture lots of people staring at you while you are on a boat in a hotel with an italian man wailing romantic love songs). Also, he had called my parents ahead of time so they already knew it was coming.
That’s my long story, per your special request 🙂

@grapefruitlove: I love it!
Good thing you gave him the right moment!
I wonder if I should just plan a trip for us – they’re always really special and it may be inspirational/motivational for him to get a move-on 😛 haha
Thanks for sharing your proposal story with me – Congratulations!
