My SO and I have been dating two years and will soon go on one of he biggest trips of our lives to Europe. Everyone around me is so convinced he is going to propose but I refuse to get into my head. I try to politely say well we shall see and they are like NO have your hair done, make up done, nails done, etc because he is going to do it. So when I get back and it didn’t happen I’m trying to figure out how to tell them like ummm told you. My SO likes surprises and so I’m sure a trip would be too predictable. How do I tell people to just relax and go with the flow without seeming negative?

I would just smile and say “who knows?” and if no proposal came and people asked you when you can back, just “who knew?” 🙂

Best thing is to be prepared if he does but I agree don’t get your hopes up. My Darling Husband and I took an amazing trip to Peru and I was soooo sure he was going to propose on the trip but he didn’t and instead proposed a month later at home lol. I also know another couple that went in the once of a lifetime trip tour of Asia where she was expecting a proposal and he didn’t! Moral of the story is not all men have good timing lol so just make sure you prep just in case it does happen but don’t get upset if it doesn’t. If the two of you have discussed a larger commitment and future together then it will happen when it happens. Both of the men in my stories said that they didn’t want to propose when it felt expected…*facepalm*

Like PP said, not all men thinking about planning and timing as well as we do..they miss a lot of good opportunities sometimes. 😂 Just respectfully tell people that you don’t want to get your hopes up and you are just looking forward to a fun trip. If they keep pressing after that, then they are starting to nag about it.

So many bees get their hopes up and end up not enjoying romantic trips. I say why not treat yourself and look amazing on this trip? If he proposes, great. If not, you’re going to look so great in your vacation photos. Win win!

Concentrate on enjoyment of the trip. I’ve been on romantic trips where it didn’t happen. If you’re doing your nails or hair then do it for you rather than the expectation. Enjoy it and if it happens celebrate and if not you won’t be too disappointed.
