Bee2Be21 :  Congrats girl!!!! Keep us updated!!! Even if it’s not an engagement, it’s a super sweet gesture, and I hope you really enjoy your trip!!!! Try not to spend the whole time wondering when he’ll propose, you’ll want to be present for your vacation, with or without the ring. 

 

I’m still waiting but one of my best friend’s boyfriend proposed recently on a trip, and we called it weeks beforehand. She spent her first several days worried about whether he would or wouldn’t do it. Enjoy yourself and have fun on your secret vacation. โ˜บ๏ธโ˜บ๏ธ

Wel, l hope it works out just as you want dear OP, but do beware of handing over so much power.

I don’t like that you  have been ‘waiting ‘, he hasn’t, he bought the ring and ( to me incomprehensibly) did that hanging on to it thing despite your evident desire to have it. Now he decides where and when – or even if- and even instructs you when to take time off and organise your passport.

Presumably you are OK with your passive role, but do take care it doesn’t go too far.

What a sweet man! I hope the trip is everything you want it to be… and more!!! Have the most wonderful time ๐Ÿ™‚

I had a similar experience; we normally organise holidays together (me doing most of the organising) but earlier this year he asked me for a few days in July that I could take off work. He ended up planning a lovely trip to Florence, where he then proposed. It was incredibly thoughtful and sweet (although now I know he can do such a good job at organising holidays, I won’t let him off so easily next time we plan one!!!)

EEEK! This is so exciting!! Im crossing everything for you, but as you say its a really sweet gesture regardless! Sounds like a lovely man you have there! 

I can sort of sympathize, my FH proposed on a trip away and about a week before i accidentally saw that he had the ring, before that i had had no idea at all! To be honest once we got set off on the trip i was so excited about the trip that i didnt even think about it or if it would happen and it was a lovely surprise! 

Have a fab time!

Well of course I had no intention to insult you , l just feared for you that’s all. ‘Tradition ‘ is rarely a friend to women , enshrining , as it usually does,  men’s agency and women’s lack thereof. 

Of course l wish you happy, these pps being outraged etc on your behalf have missed the point. I don’t believe you did miss it.
