And alghough he has already told me not to expect anything I can’t help hoping…
I gave him his valentine’s present a couple weeks ago because I bought tickets to a comedian and I needed to make sure he’d be home for it. His work lets him pick when he goes out of town. He is really excited about it and last week asked if I minded waiting to get my valentine’s present on that night. I said it was fine.
We went out Friday night with a bunch of friends and he changed it saying that was my gift. He paid for dinner, hotel room and all of our drinks. So he said not to expect anything. I don’t blame him, it was expensive!
Saturday we were talking about finances, he said he talked to his boss about letting him go out of town more often because he makes more money that way. His reason was because he wants to get married this year and have a nice wedding instead of just going to the JOP. I laughed at him at that point. I told him if he wants a nice wedding this year we need to start planning it like right now. He said he knows and that I will be proposed to soon.
So here’s me hoping that something will happen tomorrow or the night we go see the comedian. I don’t want to push him, but I’m just ready to be married to this man already!! Anyone else have a SO that told them not to expect anything but still hoping? I hate this boat…

I totally understand! I know my SO won’t propose on VDay, but I can’t help but hope that he will do it by the end of February. According to his timeline it should happen soon though.
It’s a great thing that you know it is coming soon!! Congrats and try to focus on how exciting it will be. That helps me stay calm even though I hate this boat too..:)

Ugh I’m in the same boat! SO says not to expect it, and I’m trying not to get my hopes up, but who wouldn’t get their hopes up on the one night romanticism is encouraged! lol Hang in there and enjoy the comedian at least! 🙂

Yes, mine has made it clear he will not do it when it is expected, so no holidays or birthdays, etc. Our anniversary is the day after valentine’s but I am trying not to expect anything. He did mention the long weekend coming up (we are in Ontario) next weekend so hopefully he is thinking that will be a good time? haha I don’t know. Just fantasizing now.

ugh, i know this boat. nowadays i’m luckily not so concerned about it. but i sometimes wish we could just get it over with. all this build up for… what exactly?
it’s odd to think a year ago tomorrow i was CONVINCED SO was going to propose. that seems like just yesterday! 2011 was gone in a blink.

@Megan316: Mine took me out on almost daily dates and “field trips” (which are sometimes dinner and sometimes trips to the grocery store) the two weeks before we got engaged. So when we went on a “field trip” the night we got engaged I didn’t realize anything was going on until we had been in the car for an hour. And I didn’t think it was a proposal until he pulled out the ring. I had been picturing him using the proposal as an excuse to fly out and visit me (I was doing an internship several states away for the summer) so I was completely caught off guard. Which is impressive because I knew he had the ring.
ETA: So basically, I think hes trying to throw you off, and while I don’t want you to get your hopes up, I don’t think those dates are completely off the table.

Sounds like plans are happening! But also, try not to expect it tomorrow might. I know with my SO, if he said it wasn’t happening, it wouldn’t be happening. I just don’t want you to her your hopes up for tomorrow 🙂

he hasnt told me not to expect anything but I feel as though I DEFINITELY shouldnt expect anything tomorrow…yet you cannnnnt help but to have that little lingering hope! you just cant. it will never go away until he gives us the ring lol. I feel you, really do. We had an amazing tonight out with friends tonight and I feel so close to him, I couldn’t imagine a better surprise than him asking me to marry him tomorrow. But….i have a very grave feeling that tomorrow wont be the day. keep your head uP 🙂

My Fiance made it seem like he was going to propose on Valentines day, dropping hints, making sure my nails were done (yes ladies, he does my nails) and then nothing, no proposal. Let me tell you I was not impressed. Two weeks later he totally cought me off guard and proposed when I least expected it. He said he wanted it to be special so that we could have our own day, one that we didn’t have to share with any other couples. His reasons were sweet but let me tell you I could have killed him on the morning of the 15th.
