Recently I had a dream of my SO proposing. Was just curious if anyone else has had this happen to them.
I mentioned parts of the dream to him just left out the proposal part..considering we’ve only been dating 1.5 years…Didn’t want to freak him out. Although hes already admitted to myself and my family that hes not going to propose till I move in with him.
The dream though honestly was amazing. We went somewhere on vacation together that had really nice weather at one peak and had nice snowy conditions at the other peak. We went skiing, and he pretended he was undoing his skis and got down on one knee and proposed…Too bad it was just a dream

i’ve had a couple of proposal dreams myself. i haven’t told my mister about them but i did tell my bestie. its always a little sad to wake up and realize it was only a dream. well, once i was glad to find it was only a dream since the ring was HIDEOUS. lol

I have had probably half a dozen of them…. Enough that in last night’s dream when SO was proposing, I asked him if it was a dream lol. They always feel so real to me, and it’s so disappointing when I wake up. Ugh.

When I was waiting I used to have dreams like this.
I would dream that he had proposed and we were telling friends/family, etc.
Then I woke up, realized it hadn’t happened and was all sad. 🙁
Now my brain has moved on to the wedding, all sorts of dumb things happening like showing up late or wearing the wrong dress. It never ends!!

I had a few very realistic dreams a few months ago. I looked up ‘ring’ and ‘engagement’ on dreammoods.com and the dream symbolism for both of these things are about a deep desire for more stability in a relationship (or something like that). At the time I was feeling unsure about where we were headed due to feeling like we never would be close to an engagement, so it made sense. Try the website and see if there is a deeper meaning to why you had the dream. I love dreammoods.com haha!

I recently had a dream about getting engaged.. (My first one actually so it was different). I have no idea where it was taking place but I know it was happening since my boyfriend was down on one knee and asking.. And I didn’t get to see a ring, only a ring box in my dream! Argh! I woke up shortly after. I couldn’t tell my boyfriend either because of the V-Day Challenge. Grr.. What a dream tease.

@waffles: I’ve had a few proposal dreams. The first one I ever had was entertaining, because it was very elaborate. We were at some banquet hall or something, dressed all fancy. He proposed, and then we had drinks. The funniest part was that when he proposed, a banner dropped and it said something along the lines of “your mom said I could!” haha I told my mom and she thought it was hilarious, because she’s always thought he was a great guy.
The second one I had, him and I were in a huge, empty, brand new house. I’m assuming we had just bought it in the dream or something. In the dream, he pulled out a ring box, opened it, and the box was empty. Then he was like “Just kidding!” and pulled out another box, it was also empty. The third one actually had a ring in it. I’m assuming that dream had something to do with my feeling worried at the time, about him not following through or something? That would explain the empty boxes and then finally following through/having a ring at the end.
The last dream I had, we were ring shopping. It felt sooo real.
Like a PP said, I also looked up the symbolism. I can’t remember now exactly how I was feeling when I had those dreams, but I’m sure they were around times where I was feeling uneasy about not being engaged yet.
They feel so real, I hate waking up from them. I remember the first one, I woke up smiling and told my SO. He laughed and called me a nerd, then asked if my mom didn’t like him anymore or something. 😛

Three days before my Fiance proposed, I actually dreamed that he had done it. We’d been together for 2.5 years by then and after 8 months, I was pretty much decided on he was my future husband. Then, the night before he proposed (so, Christmas Eve 2009) I had the same dream.
It felt surreal when he actually asked because I felt like it already had happened and I guess I gave him a look like, “seriously?”

One of my friend who I used to work with who is a boy, twittered today, that he had a dream of me nagging him to marry me and it was soooo scary that he woke up at 6 am. he and I actually got married both in some ethnic costume in his funny dream.

I just dreamt last night that SO proposed with an emerald cut diamond that was longer than my ring finger and I was sorta mad because we had never discussed rings before and he got me a real, flawless diamond (and I just want moissanite so I was mad at how much money he spent). Then inside that dream I woke up (so that part was a dream within a dream) and (this is still a dream) and we were in our house waking up in bed together and I mentioned to him that I dreamt he proposed, and he said, “Oh? What kind of diamond did I get you?” like he was asking for clues! And I said, “Um, emerald cut…but I was mad because we hadn’t discussed rings first. Because that’s not what I wanted.” He said, “Oh. Well do you want to discuss rings then?” And I just about died. I said, “Why, thinking of proposing?”
And he said: “Yeah…I mean, I know I should soon, I’m the one causing the hold-up.”
And then I woke up for real. I was SO MAD when I woke up!! If only he were that receptive IRL. Though I’ve been planning to talk to him and get a serious timeline out of him this weekend so maybe this dream was prophetic…haha, I wish.
