I know it’s more difficult than anything right now to not think of a proposal, but try to just think of it as he wants to take you somewhere as a fun surprise! You have a great boyfriend who is trying to make things a mystery for you and probably doesn’t realize he’s torturing you by doing this when all that’s on your mind is a proposal! Just try to take it for what it’s worth and enjoy it!

My Boyfriend or Best Friend has been doing things like that, too–he had me reserve 2 dates in my calendar recently, but the first was a concert (which I discovered on my own) and I still don’t know what the sept date is for, but he seemed like it wasnt anything huge as there were tenative plans that came up for that same day and he said it wasn’t a big deal to miss our original plans.  He even once planned a night out for the 2 of us and surprised me when a bunch of our friends met us at the bar.  Apparently THEY all thought the surprise was for him to propose to me, too, but no dice 🙁  Just don’t get your hopes up too much, that way if he DOES propose, you will be more surprised! And if he doesnt, just enjoy the fact that you have such a caring boyfriend who wants to plan sweet things for you.  But 2Peas is right–boys dont realize how torturous doing these things are to us!! Just remember to keep it in a positive light and have fun–he would much rather marry someone who has fun when you guys go out rather than someone who mopes bc there was no ring ( i need to tell myself the same thing!!)

@jjilyeah: yeah, I know the surprise aspect is really important to some boys, mine in particular, and it sounds like yours, too.  My bf has said several times that he will have to be really good at making it a surprise.  I think that is exactly why they do these things.  They know this is the one part of the wedding besides the actual wedding that they are 100% in control of and they want to make their moment shine, not let it be dampened by a ruinied surprise. At the same time, boys think they are slicker than they are, so he might think he is being smooth but you see right thru it.  Good luck though, we are all rooting for you! Let us know how it turns out, ring or no ring! your’s is coming soon though, i can feel it!!
