My first board post here! 🙂 I know that the proposal is coming soon (hopefully this month, latest by early October), but I always can’t help myself from “jokingly” prodding him with questions regarding it once in a while. I should really join the “Shut It Up Pact” lol.
Yesterday, after joking about it together, he suddenly goes, “You know what, next time you ask me about your ring/proposal/what’s happening, I’m going to tell you the truth. And you’re going to ruin the surprise for yourself.”
We both start laughing about it but then he says, “No, seriously, I think I’m going to do that. If you ask me if I’m going to propose to you today, or something, I will tell you everything.” And I’m like Noooo! Cause obviously, I want to be surprised, but I want to know at the same time! Sigh. I’m too inquisitive for my own good.
Anyone else have a hard time not talking about it? Has anyone ruined a proposal for being too curious / asking too many questions? XD

Well, I know for sure that my proposal is coming Thanksgiving weekend, and I don’t talk about it! I feel at ease about it, and although I don’t know the exact details, I’m not stressed. I know it’s going to be fantastic!
Just chill. 🙂 You know it’s going to be next month…just enjoy the excitement of it and let him surprise you! Yes, you will be surprised, even though you know it’s coming, because you don’t know how exactly he’s going to do it!
It’s all good.

Thanks for responding and for the reminder. I really should just not worry about it and be patient for the surprise. I have a bit of a reputation of ruining surprises (unknowingly), but he’s definitely good at it when it’s something big hehe 🙂

I have 11 days. Haha. I know a ton about my proposal. I’m still super excited and I know that I won’t be blind-sided.

That is pretty cute of him! You need to not ask anymore bc then it will be a surprise. Easier said than done, I know! But if I were you I would do a countdown for the end of October where he can see you crossing the days off, but you don’t ask him etc. That way it will be obvious that you are wating and that you are being impatient.
I drop hints frequently, but don’t nag. I was putting our grocery list in his iphone and I stumbled by a note titled ‘rings something’ and I was so afraid I was going to spoil the surprise that I wrote the grocery list on a piece of paper bc I didn’t want to tempt myself or spoil anything.
Good luck and I am sure you will be engaged before you know it!
