Hello, and welcome to the bee! 🙂

I was in your position in December: it was me and my guy’s 1 year anniversary…and he surprised me with a cruise! We had both been talking about getting engaged, so my family and friends…and even myself…thought for sure it would happen. It was perfect!

Unfortunately, I got my hopes up and when it didn’t happen, I cried after having way too many pina coladas. He told me he knew I was expecting it, but he just wasn’t ready yet, but that it would happen.

It didn’t happen, but it was still a great time! Try not to think about it. I know, it’s hard, but it’s best to focus on the vacation itself so you don’t get too disappointed! And now, my guy feels ready, has the ring, and is waiting for the perfect time to surprise me.

If it happens in Mexico, great! If not, at least you got to spend time with your man! If he’s not ready now, he might be ready in a few months: you just never know! 🙂

EDIT: I think it’s very important to have a serious conversation about marriage before you talk about getting engaged. Marriage is a big commitment and should be discussed openly, not implied! Maybe you should have a nice talk first and then go from there.

welcome- I wouldn’t get your hopes up about the vacation- he may not do it then- just stick to your principles and I hope he does it soon enough for you.

Try not to get your hopes up. My fiance was so set on surprising me that he purposely chose a random day, which resulted in my being disappointed after a lot of holidays and anniversaries. Just enjoy the vacation and don’t expect a proposal, the last thing you want is to ruin a great anniversary trip by being expectant the whole time, and then ending up crushed.

If you have discussed marriage and agree that it’s the next step for you, it will happen eventually! If you haven’t, well, you should probably have that serious conversation. Being surprised with an engagement ring isn’t really as romantic as the movies make it, especially if you’re not sure about how to answer!

@beachgirl5: Hey there.  I agree with the PPs.  Do not get your hopes, expect nothing but a good time in Mexico with your SO.  If it happens, great!  If not, then you will have not been expecting it so (hopefully) the diappointment will be minimal.  Best of luck!
