I actually did this!  (kind of)  When Fiance proposed, I was all stunned and incoherent for several minutes, and then when I reached for the ring, he was like, “you have to say yes first.”  And I smirked and said, “hmm, can I think about it?” and he said, “fine, but you can’t have the ring.”  And then I grabbed it and said “yes!” (which he knew I would), but I felt like after waiting all that time, he could handle a little teasing.  It’s so US, because we’re always joking around and he knew I was so excited for him to finally propose.

@gocubbies: Definitely jumping on the “smacking” bandwagon…it’s like I dragged a life sized Dumbo into the room on a leash, geez

Yeah I’m kind of with CaitMarae — your boyfriend might think it’s funny, but to me my Boyfriend or Best Friend asking me to be his wife is going to be a HUGE deal. Even if it’s taken him almost 7 years and I’ve been pretty frustrated for the last two. It’s still a really special important moment, and for me I’m just not sure I’d want it marred by “pretending” to think about it just to get him back for not being ready when I was.

It’s just not the story I’d want to tell to family, friends, grandkids: “Well, I was pretty mad waiting for the ring so when he finally proposed I pretended to think about it.”

We’re all different though, so if it works for you…

i’m not sure it would be a good idea to go that route. you never know how somebody’s going to react in a situation like this, no matter what their usual behavior is! it would be awful for it to spoil the moment for which you’ve been so anxiously waiting.

if you’re really set on teasing him about it, maybe wait until after the proposal and acceptance and all that to do a, “wait, but…” sort of joke. or afterward say, “oh, i almost was going to say [insert your faux-no statement here]!” with a smile. he can still think it’s funny after the fact!
