Were you correct when (if) you suspected when they would propose?

Yup.  I guessed the exact day, lol.  The only thing I guessed wrong on was the location.

steelmagnolia92 :  So my fiance and I had one of those pretty instant “this is the one” kind of connections (i never believed in it until it happened to me)

We went away for a weekend around 6 months for my bday and I told my friend “oh gosh I hope he doesnt propose yet. I never told him what I would want in a ring”. I didnt really think he was going to, but for some reason it popped in my head.

That weekend he did not propose but he did drink a little too much in the hotel and confessed he wanted to propose ASAP but he was waiting until around a year so we didnt look crazy and wreckless. I fully agreed and he did propose on the weekend of our one year anniversary 🙂

I had no clue when he would actually propose! We’d had the ring for a little while, so I knew it was happening in the near future. I thought it would be around or on my birthday next month. My FH didn’t act any differently leading up to it or that same day he did it. I still can’t believe it was a total surprise.

We had the ring already and I had an idea and was suspicious about it being on this particular weekend. He had said he booked tickets for us to go to this garden, randomly for a Sunday of the weekend. That felt like a very stereotypical and ideal place to propose. But he took me by surprise and proposed Friday night. He said the tickets was to throw me off thinking I was going to propose that day. We ended up taking a few engagement photos on Sunday at the garden he booked tickets for.

Yes, I correctly predicted the day, location, and manner in which he proposed. And despite having almost no input in the ring, I correctly predicted the style of ring as well. We know each other too well, and my fiance is bad at keeping secrets from me (he accidentally dropped way too many hints, lol).

Yes.  But we had been talking about rings for a bit and picked out one.  I think if I hadn’t been a part of picking the ring I wouldn’t have had an idea because my husband is usually pretty quiet about things like that.

Sure was! I tried not to get my hopes up, but under the circumstances, I felt it pretty likely. He did, however, unintentially throw me off with his behavior. He was SUPER happy all week and not stressed out. Told me how much he loved me every second of every day, like I kid you not. It was the day after my birthday that he proposed and that whole week he was so excited that “it (is your) birthday”.

We went on a staycation at a bed and breakfast in town and he left the dishes and hows a bit of a mess. That seems little, but I thought to myself, he would never do that if he was about to propose. He later brought that up that he meant to clean up and have it nice for when we came back, but was too hyper! I knew it lol Mainly, he was just too chill, so I kind of convinced myself it wasn’t happening at the last minute which I think was good.

It was perfect in every way even though I was expecting it!

Yes, but we had gone ring shopping together, I knew he had picked up the ring, and we had a huge vacation planned to visit his family abroad. I was wrong about which day/activity though. He had mentioned this sunrise hike quite a few times, but he proposed the day before at an oasis/waterfall. I’m really glad he proposed when/where he did, because the hike was brutal. I figured it would be one of those two days though, because those were the only days we were really alone throughout the trip.

But there was a moment the week prior where he handed his dad his phone to take a photo of us and then put his hand in his pocket and I was like OMG is this the moment?!?

No he actually proposed sooner than I expected! We’d picked out a ring (online) and the rest I left to him but I didn’t expect it for a long while after that. I think from picking the ring to proposing was around a month and a half maybe? 

This is such an exciting time! Try not to overthink it and just go with the flow! I’m so glad I didn’t expect it to happen when it did. I think I would have had all kinds of feelings if I’d known and maybe wouldn’t have been able to sleep the night before haha! 

Good luck and enjoy!
