LOL awesome idea but if he is anything like my SO he probably has his own plan. But hey creating lots of romantic energy in the relationship can’t hurt  🙂

I definitely tried that with my Fiance. In the end, he suggested a wonderfully romantic date (boating and picnicing under the stars), so I saw it coming a mile away because he’s not the type to suggest things like that. Your SO will propose when he’s ready, I have no doubt!

Your guy has his own plan… It will come when he is ready

I’ve done this before but sometimes it can leave you disappointed when they fail to seize the opportunity. My SO and I went to Jamaica after about two years of dating (it was actually the month of our 2 year anniversary). I couldn’t help but let my mind get carried away and was a bit disappointed when it didn’t happen. Now we have been dating for over 3 years and I know it is coming soon. We have had a trip planned for my birthday and have moved it back multiple times for various reasons (my b.day was July 15th and we are going on the 8th of this month). I was sort of happy the last time we moved it back because I thought it would give him more time to propose to get the ring and propose to me on our trip. We will see what happens.

I don’t think that he will take an opportunity that you create. Let him go with his own plan. From what Fiance told me, he has been thinking about how to propose to me long before he ever actually thought about rings. He will create the perfect scenario for you.

Also, like PP said, sometimes you set yourself up for disappointment for that. I know that I went on a trip with my then boyfriend, and at every opportunity that I thought he could propose I was jumpy and I always ended up being disappointed. It didn’t make for a very fun vacation. I know it’s hard but try to enjoy the time that you have right now. Good luck!
