Also agree..he’s messing with you! If I told my fiance I would hate a certain something he already planned to surprise me , his face would turn white. He would totally blow it and ask me what we can do to change or alter it. He’s smiling b/c he’s got you thinking the wrong thing!! 😉

Sounds like he’s pulling your leg (and knows exactly how to do it, too). 🙂

I agree with all the PP, it sounds like he is just pulling your leg and teasing you because you have told him not to do this. Try not to worry!

I agree with PP, he’s messing with you – I actually DID figure out FI’s original proposal plan (he told me later) and he completely faked me out and acted like he wasn’t going to propose for another six months. He wanted to be extra special and unexpected, so he came up with something else.

I think he’s just taking some evil glee in throwing you off the trail 😉

Sounds like he’s just messing around with you. This is serious enough for you that he probably knows and is just trying to throw you off. Keep us updated with how it goes, I bet it’ll be wonderful!
ETA: Most guys don’t want you to know how they’re going to propose. If he’s smiling in a guilty way like that he probably (almost definitely) will not propose that way. I’m pretty much positive mine has the ring and yet he always says “what ring? there’s no ring!” or something of the sorts. He hasn’t ONCE given in to having gotten it. Guys don’t like to spoil their big surprises!

Thank you guys so much… I know this post is ridiculous but I’m really shy….And I have reallllly bad anxiety. I was nervous you guys might be like “get over it..just be happy he is proposing” but everyone was so supportive. honestly, I would never actually say no… But I might resent him after the fact. Regardless, I’m confident all will be ok no matter what happens. Thanks everyone!

If he had been planning to propose at the game and you told him it would be the worst possible thing he could ever do, he would not be smiling… in any way. Trust me.
So, relax! I bet you WILL get the special and private proposal you’re wishing for!

I had the same thing happen to me…I really wanted it to be private. About 15 minutes before it happened I realized it was going to be kinda public (about 10 strangers around) and started FREAKING OUT. I felt like I was having a panic attack. It was not pretty. But then it happened and I couldn’t care less that there were other people around. It’s all about you and your SO, forget the other people!
Just in case it does happen, try not to stress! It means you get to spend the rest of your life together!

i think there are worse ways and why cant the proposal also be about him as well if thats what he wants?

Serously, what is it with Cardinals fans dreaming of proposing on the jumbotron? Even my grandfather thought it was cool.

@eloping: it can, we are saying the proposal should be about the couple -not one party or the other- as an analogy to the OP’s anxiety…it’s like having your SO propose to you in a spider museum when you have arachnophobia or like your SO taking you to a romantically candle lit underground tunnel when you are claustrophobic.
OR, like my SO taking me to a public forum of 500 people where I am to give a seminar on why I have nearly 800 posts on a wedding website when I am not even engaged and then proposing, when I have a fear of public speaking 🙂 lol

I know a girl who got proposed to while she was pooping. Seriously. He burst in on her and held out the ring and bellowed “LETS DO THIS!!!”
Proposals can be wacky and not what you pictured lol, but it DOES sound like he’s just fooling with you. But if you ever get worried about his proposal method, just remember, at least you probably won’t be mid-poop.

I think hes just messing with you, but Fiance says that if he does do it this way after you have told him not too, then that he doesnt really know you. We both agree that its more special when its private.
Keep us updated of what happens!
@bearlove: wow I would be mad if I got a proposal like that!
