I know I’m taking the fun out of it, but I’m trying to figure out when the FH will propose…I have a strong feeling he has already bought the ring. I am convinced that men propose only on trips or weekend getaways as opposed to places closer to home…every one of my married girlfriends got engaged on a trip or getaway (except one, her husband proposed on her birthday).
I’m curious to see if my suspicion is true … because we don’t have any trips planned in the near future!!! Grrr.

I think how the proposal occurs is really dependent on your BF and your relationship. My FI asked me at home after we had a nice dinner one night. I was sitting on the couch and trying to get him to put his plate away from dinner! Haha…but when it happened it was a surprise and it was just the two of us. We are a pretty laid-back, casual couple, so I wouldn’t have wanted it to happen any other way 🙂

My FI proposed on a Wednesday after dinner while we were sitting on the couch watching the Travel Channel. Completely out of the blue and I had no idea.

He proposed while we were cuddling on the couch at home, lol! It was so sweet and intimate… and so “us”.

Mine proposed on a trip to Mexico that I suggested for my 25th birthday. He didn’t plan a trip to propose… he just took advantage of one I already had planned 🙂

Home! Though I’m a tad jealous of you ladies who got deluxe proposals at exotic locations, I wouldn’t take my guy’s proposal for anything. 🙂

I told him he couldn’t propose until I had graduated school. He proposed about 15 minutes after we got to my apt after post graduation dinner with my family. He said he planned on doing it the next day but he couldn’t wait. He mimicked the scene from Love Actually with the cards–I guess we talked about it on our first date.

My FI proposed on a trip home to see my parents in front of our town waterfalls. He did it then because he wanted to ask my parents permission in person first (we live about 9 hours from my parents).

In an IHOP parking lot… and it was perfect. There was so much feeling and emotion and he just couldn’t wait any longer. I cried, he teared up and it was the sweetest thing ever!

Mine took me away for my birthday one weekend and proposed then. Everyone else suspected and I did too (due to a few clues) but mostly tried not to think about it since he’d told me it wouldn’t happen until 2009 (this was Nov 08). I know lots of people who have been proposed to/gotten engaged at home though 🙂

Wow! I am enjoying reading these proposal stories and am actually shocked at how many of you got engaged at “home”!! It does seem romantic just to do it in “the moment”… So … it could happen any day now then?!? 🙂 Exciting!!!!
Keep ’em coming 🙂
