Dream proposal: As an introverted person, I would love something private and romantic, vacation would be ideal.
Nightmare: Restaurant/public proposal with a “secret” photographer would be mortifying for me.

nikke2bee : OMG the secret photographer- I told my boyfriend heck no to that one! There’s plenty of time for an engagement shoot later- I want the proposal to be just between us.

Can I be added as well?
I probably won’t be engaged for another 3 weeks, but my dream proposal would be him handing me the keys to a beat up old pickup truck with the ring on the keychain or in the glove box. He’s been teaching me to drive a stick and we love gravel/off roading. We also do a lot of car repairs together, so the truck would be a great project for us.
We also met doing quiz bowl in high school, and we just recently won a $250 cash prize for our bar room trivia, so when they actually present us the cash would be great too. We’re low-key people, so I wouldn’t expect him to do it publicly.

There won’t be an updated waiting list until the 20th of this month. I was restructured out of my job and laid off this week. I have tech an iPad at home but no access to a computer and the computer I was using was my work one. I will be buying a computer on the 20th. And can update at that point for every one.
If you need me to step down as list keeper I understand. Otherwise please continue on with your updating of requests to be added and removed.

DaniGirl03 : oh no Dani! That’s awful. I’m so sorry. Do you need any help with maintaining the list in the meantime to make it easier when you get a computer? Let me know and if I can I will gladly assist.

catthebee37 : no honestly it’s pretty straight forward. I have a system that works pretty well. For whatever idiotic reason the shareholders came up with they decided not to have a dedicated salesperson. My sales target for last year was 1 million and I did 1.3 mil. Target this year was 1.2 mil and I was on track to do 1.7 mil. I get a good severance and all my bonus and commissions it just came out of nowhere and when my computer died a couple years ago I just got in the habit of using my work one and didn’t replace it.

Sorry to hear that you have been made redundant Dani, what a horrible shock. I hope you are ok and that things work themselves out. X

Hi can I please be added to the list?
My Boyfriend or Best Friend put deposit down on my gorgeous custom ring yesterday so I guess I am now officially waiting! He is such a wee dear.. ☺️
So weird that it all now just feels so normal, something that I always worried just wouldn’t happen for me. He has made it so easy.

Congrats to those off the list! My dream proposal is having SO propose while we are in Italy next month, particularly the night we are in the Tuscan countryside. I’m 99% certain this is what SO is planning anyway, so about 6 weeks to go!! Not that I’m counting or anything.

dreamer925 : I’m doing okay. It kind of came out of nowhere wasn’t expecting it at all. I’ve already got one interview in salesbut not my field. I flipped my LinkedIn to actively looking and had a message 5 minutes later.
I’ve got a bachelors of commerce and 18 years of experience in my field. So I’m very employable, and shouldn’t have much for issues finding a new challenge.

DaniGirl03 : Aw man, I went through that last year. Luckily I had an inkling that it was coming, so I had already started looking and I recieved a wonderful severance (7mos). So I interviewed anywhere I could but also enjoyed a month at the lake house!
Good luck to you! It sounds like you will be just fine!
