similar thread up but this one is more specific. i know when my bf is going to propose… on our trip to montreal.. but I dont know which day and how lol. Idk how i’ll react..
How did you guys react? Anyone not cry or get super suprised?
I admit that a part of me feels like I am not going to be surprised by the proposal because i know so much already, he doesn’t know how to plan surprises and tells me everything (I am very very very excited to marry him though, we are unoffically engaged atm). bf isn’t romantic and doesn’t plan things.. i do all that. He also doesn’t use resources to help him, so i doubt he’ll ask anyone to help with the proposal.. but he has written me cards before with VERY thoughtful words and he is an angel and the love of my life. I am guessing he will just hand me the ring in our hotel room and say some beautiful words (nothing wrong with that) 😛 Anyone guess how their SO would propose? anyone get it right?

I honestly think you won’t know how you’ll respond until it happens. For example, I’ve always been a very emotional, very romantic person. I cry at songs and TV ads (haha). I thought FOR SURE that I would bawl my eyes out when my Fiance proposed, and I even had no idea that he was going to do it on the trip as he’d convinced me he wouldn’t.
When I realized he was proposing, it was like my brain short-circuted. My remember screeching “Oh my gooooshhhhh!” and almost falling over, but I didn’t cry. I hugged him tightly and we laughed and he shakily put the ring on my finger, and then we laughed and hugged some more and got wet (we were standing right next to the ocean).
But yeah, I had no idea how he would propose….at all. I love what he decided to do!
I bet your proposal will be sweet and beautiful. Just let yourself feel and do what seems natural to you! Don’t put any expectations on your reactions. 🙂 Congrats on your engagement!

He proposed at the airport the minute he got off the plane after having been away for 6months with minimal opportunities for contact. I had dreamed of him doing it but never even considered it a viable option! When it happened my brain short-circuited and I don’t remember any of the beautiful things he said to me (neither does he) but I do know I said “okay” and not “yes” in typical foot in mouth fashion. I’m a very emotional person but also a very private person so it could have gone either way with me and bawling my eyes out but it turns out I just went into shock. No tears. Also inability to sleep that night
