@Everdeen: I just started to realize that … I am giving up on trying to push it to be sooner. He says he has something planned in his head it is just the ring h has to purchase… So when that time comes I am sure it will be a great surprise, until then I just have to trust that he has it taken care of.

Corny but cute I guess…..LOL….

Yes Like the PP said I also have had to understand that the man wants to take pride in the propsal so it’s wise to try and back off a little bit which I have.

Although you did hear him say at the beginning of the video that she was ranting about wedding and being proposed to….sounds like an impatient waiting be to me….lol…. but that didn’t stop him.

@Everdeen: On our 4th date Darling Husband and I went to NYC. We got off of the train at Grand Central Station. We were walking through the main concourse giggling like you do when you first start dating and he said, “I’m going to marry you one day Ms.MyMaidenName” I laughed and remember thinking he was crazy.  He then said once he decided to marry me, he knew he would ask me in that same place. He had planned NYC for V-day and I made other plans, which postponed my proposal, but only by one week, when he finally convinced me to go to the city in the freezing cold. Men really do think these things out.

Maybe it’s my hormones today, but he planned this when he was 12…so it was whatever woman he wanted to propose to? Not tailored to this one specific woman?

Indeed, some men think the proposal through and through. ๐Ÿ™‚ Those men love details and giving her a great memory.

Exactly.  Just because they don’t express their feelings about anything, doesn’t mean they don’t think about it.  J had it all figured out in his awesome head of his.  He talked about it with his family.  His best friend.  I think I was the only person who was left in the dark (duh!).

Our SOs want things to be perfect as much as we want them to be.  It’s part of being in love.

The giant is a romantic. It’s important to him that I enjoy telling the story for the rest of my life. So, I’m not sure what it’ll be like but I’m sure I’ll like it. ๐Ÿ™‚

 

I’m not sure this is the kind of purposal I would like, but it’s cute and well planned. ๐Ÿ™‚ She seems to be enjoying herself.

Hmmm…I want to believe that my man is taking his time because the proposal is just THAT important to him. In my case, I think he’s just kind of lazy. LOL. Oh well, he has until September. That’s what was agreed upon and that is what I’m going with. I’d love if he would surprise me with an earlier proposal but I’m not going to hold my breath.

@Everdeen: Maybe so. I wasn’t a woman who thought of her wedding as a kid, so maybe that’s where I was coming from.LOL

I’m starting to realize more and appreciate that the proposal is very important to the guy as well. I never really thought of it until seeing these stories on WeddingBee.

Yesterday, a coworker of mine called one of her clients and she said usually this guy is very upbeat and happy, but for some reason he seemed down so she asked what was wrong and he told her he had planned on proposing to his gf, but  her mother found out and told her. I guess the mother was overly excited for her daughter and couldn’t contain it and told her  and I guess the daughter told him she knew (I don’t know why she would do that!) – but he was very upset about and said he didn’t know what to do anymore and if he should still go through with the proposal as planned or wait a while longer to propose. But he was very disappointed that she had found out – he really wanted to surprise her.

When she told me the story it put into perspective of what guys feel during this time. As much as our waiting time is filled with anxiety – guys go through the same thing when trying to make the proposal perfect.

@SeattleMolly: Agreed, mine wants to be able to tell people how he proposed and for me to be proud of it.
