@Impatiently waiting: I don’t think I could ever do something like that during my proposal, but it is kind of funny.

@Impatiently waiting: bahaha I have been considering this lately too. I’m soooo over the waiting and the silence. I would feel better if we could at least talk about it but it’s like I want to discuss abortion or something. It’s so taboo to him I could smack him. I feel ya!

My SO said to me last night while we were walking out dog “Gee after all this anticipation and everything, it’d be hilarious if when I finally ask you, you said “eeeeeeh… okay” I laughed, but I’m bursting at the seems already so I doubt that will happen, lol.

@Impatiently waiting: Hahah! That is so, so hilarious. If I could get a grip and contain myself and think rationally when it happens, I’d LOVE to do that.. but I’ll probably be so excited I wouldn’t even be able to 🙂

@Impatiently waiting: I’m sure it’s all in good fun but in all honesty, I could never do something like that nor would my Fiance find it funny. He actually would be pretty pissed. 

I was “waiting” for years (together for more than 5, waiting for more than 2) so when he finally proposed, I was so freakin’ excited that all I did was scream “yes” over and over again. I was pretty bitter during my “waiting” period and the thought of making him sweat a bit did cross my mind but then I thought about all the effort he would be putting into the proposal (I knew that he wanted to plan something special) and I realized that telling him that I would have to think about it (even if I was just joking) would really hurt him and potentially ruin our engagement. 

This is just my opinion though.

@UpstateCait: AGREE. I totally got sick of waiting, it was frustrating and it hurt my feelings. But that doesn’t ever ever mean that I would do something on purpose to hurt my FI’s feelings.

It’s not his fault if he isn’t in the same place as you, relationship-wise and he shouldn’t be punished for it. It seems like a kind of immature thing to do.
