How did you figure out it would be on christmas? Did someone tell you, or are you just speculating bc you found the ring? I wouldnt blow the surprise by telling him you know. i would just let it happen and let your happiness for the moment masquerade as surprise.

DO NOT say a word!! Worst thing for a man’s ego is yelling them you know. I figured out that my Fiance was  proposing fifteen minutes before it happened and I Still was surprised with true feelings. Go with it, and don’t be upset if gee changes his mind and fires it another day. It will happen!! 🙂

Don’t let him know you know about it!!! And then enjoy it. Enjoy your private countdown, the certainty and it happening!

I agree with PP. Rest easy, and pretend like you don’t know! And even if you do know, there’s always a chance that it won’t happen until it actually does. You can tell him playfully afterwards though.

pretend like you never heard a thing. That person was just joking, you know nothing, carry on.

I agree with PP’s- pretend you don’t know. Chances are, even though you’re expecting it now, you will be so overcome with emotion that your sincere reaction may appear to be one of surprise anyway! Enjoy the moment and congratulations! Let your SO have this one- it’s important that he wants to surprise you.

My fiance made SOOOO many hints about proposing to me when he booked us a weekend trip away. I pretended to not pick up on anything but then he hinted even more! I was getting a little annoyed but in honesty I love that he’s so transparent. So I made sure I was dressed nicely and had my nails done and even though he hinted even a few minutes before popping the question I acted surprised. To be honest even when you know its coming its still a crazy moment that takes your breath away, and I totally geeked out and blabbered like an  idiot. He tells everyone how he managed to surprise me and I just smile to myself.

Congratulations in advance!

blonddie94:  Did you find a ring box? Or was the ring just sitting around without it being in a box?  Did you know there was a ring inside the box and you opened it and then found it?!! Naughty Naughty!!   Sorry, not helping………but just saying!! Lol 😉

I was told a few weeks before hand. And I told my Fiance because I’m the worlds worst liar. (I was so pissed at the family member who squeaked. She hates suprises apparently). He intentionally did something else. (I was also told all the details including when and how from the original proposal) But I still wouldn’t change what happened instead  


Im trying to say it’s your choice. I sat on it for a little but couldn’t keep pretending. It will be great no matter what you decide

blonddie94:  I pretty much figured out my proposal ahead of time as well, except I was a day off. Things started playing out but I kept talking myself out of it because I never figured he’d think to do something so simple but so special and perfect for us.

I still cried and was speechless the whole night. I don’t think I can tell you even half of what he said and my heart was beating so fast it was as if I had no idea it was coming. The best part? Seeing the look on his face all night “knowing” he’d pulled off the surprise. He was smiling more than me.

I made sure my nails were done, but my hair wasn’t how I’d have preferred (actually because I still thought it was going to be the next day), but whatever.. I say you let him have his moment. Girls get really caught up in proposals being all about them, but a lot of guys tend to care about it more than you would think.
