It does sound possible! Do you know if he’s received the ring? I would try to tell yourself its not happening until New Years, just to alleviate any potential disappointment if it doesn’t happen (I know, easier said than done). But it does sound like its happening soon regardless! You’ll probably be a fiancee before 2019!

My FH was also super lovey dovey the few days before.  It was super cute.  It does sound possible!  But just try to go in and focus on enjoying the lights rather than panicking if he has to tie his shoe, lol.

WasabiWithYou :  if it makes you feel any better, my boyfriend did the same thing to me. He proposed nearly 2 months later. Honestly the anticipation killed me, and I’m pretty sure my coworkers nearly killed him. But it made the proposal itself absolutely special and wonderful in a different way.

WasabiWithYou :  oh girl, I know that all too well. The night before he proposed I was being dramatic and told him he was never going to propose and we would never have a legitimate (dog child) family 😂 

im sure he won’t be able to hang onto it much longer. My boyfriend told me he was going to do it sooner but everything that he wanted kept falling through. Maybe the same is the case for you two! 

 

Best of luck and update us when he dose propose!

I would ask after the 4th. Give him the chance to do it then without stealing his thunder. If that special day passes then I think its fair to have a “check in” conversation.

Something like “hey, i know you want it to be special and I really appreciate how much you care about this for us. Im just having a hard time because I expected the proposal to happen pretty quickly after we got the ring. A lot of special times have passed and Im starting to get really stressed and anxious everytime I think it “could” happen. Can you give me a timeframe of when you expect it to happen so I can feel better about it? Also know that waiting is making me super anxious so I really hope it wont be too long :)”

Keep it positive and light hearted. You guys are going to get there soon and this will all seem like nothing in hindsight.

For the few days that are in it – wait until after your Birtday.
