I was reading some stories in the other boards about how people reacted/what they did/what they WISH they did when their SO proposed. They were all wonderful and romantic with a lot of people saying they completely spaced out in their head because they were so excited and overwhelmed!
Have you thought about how you may react when he asked THE question? It should be a natural reaction and you cant really plan it (crying, excited, laughing…) but you still think about it. Im actually WORRIED. I have an aderenal gland issue (your fight/fight gland) where big emotions are too much for me to handle. I actually shake (like Im cold) when I get really excited. Im worried Ill faint! AHHHHH!

He’s tricked me once (got down on one knee and asked me to go blender shopping with him), so I probably won’t take him seriously at first! Then I’ll probably cry and forget to say yes or something equally as derpy. Lol.

I wouldn’t worry about shaking–I’m sure your Fiance knows about your condition and will think it’s adorable and one of the many things he loves about you! I honestly was surprised at how I reacted because I DIDN’T cry or shake or anything! I was as cool as a cucumber, oddly enough: probably because I had gone beyond excitement over the proposal (I knew it was coming) and on to something better: excitement over the marriage!

Lol I worry about this too! I’m glad I’m not the only one! I’m sure I will cry and be a mess and I’m afraid I’m going to ask if he is sure which he will not be happy about lol! I’m also really worried that I will be disappointed by his proposal because he told me how he was going to propose to me but we broke up for 6 weeks so when we got back together it would have had him proposing like a month and a half later and we definitely weren’t ready. We went to Disney as a family and his plan was to say “I guess dreams really do come true here” not sure how he is going to top that and I could kill him for telling me!

haha I guess Im not the only one who thinks about this! You are all too cute 🙂
@RapunzelRapunzel: He knows about it, but could you imagine! :
Him: “Will you marry me?”
Me: ::falls over and passes out::
Him: “Soooo, is that a yes or no?”
I only thought of it after I was watching Say Yes to the Dress and the bride fainted because she was so overwhelmed that someone was buying her a 5000$ dress. I understand that feeling, I dont even like going out to dinner at red lobster and having hiim pay for it, hehe!

I thought I was going to cry like you see on TV, but I just kept saying “oh my god” and stared at him. I hardly remember any of it. You can’t plan it! It will be perfect because it will be you!

My first thought was not of my Fiance, but of that episode in How I Met Your Mother where Lily “proposes” to Marshall after she ended their previous engagement. My first words were (jokingly) “aren’t you going to tell me how pretty and smart I am?” Apparently, when under pressure, I turn into a bad comedian.
Seriously though, don’t worry about it! Your SO knows you love him, and anything you say that isn’t “no” or “let me think about it” is going to make him the happiest person in the world.

I didn’t think I would cry because I thought my excitement would take over. But I balled like a baby. The ugly cry. I’m sure it was hideous. But I was sooo happy! And I wish I remembered everything he said but I was so excited I just couldn’t think straight! And I didn’t even give him a chance to put the ring on my finger. I snatched it up and did it for him! Haha…patience has never been one of my best qualities!

@Follydust321: PS: i love lily and marshalls relationship. Its how me and my SO are…silly and can relate on every level, even guy things like crazy weird foods or girls things like shopping for new shoes :3
I think my SO will be happy with any reaction. Im not very good at accepting gifts. Im always like “you didnt have to this, its okay. I feel bad”. This, I want it! haha! Im not worried he will be upset or anything, Ijust dont wanna make a fool of myself hehe!

@awolfpaw: um my biggest fear as well is passing out completely when I realize it’s finally happening… or throwing up :/ i hope i don’t do that hahah but my nerves get the best of me sometimes! And he wonders why I HATE surprises lol!

I worry about this. All the time. Probably the only thing about me that he doesn’t understand. Hahaha.
When I’ve recieved big news in the past – brother injured in the war, sister pregnant, medical diagnosis from doctor, etc. – my reaction has generally been detachment. Usually: “Oh.” I don’t want that. 🙁 I want to cry or shake or stammer or something! I want that beautiful emotional moment! I’m really worried. ><

I worry about this too. I’m anxious alot and indecisive too. I worry that I’ll react under pressure despite the fact that I look forward to this. I worry that my inclination would be to tell him that I need time to think about it or that I wouldn’t be able to automatically spit out a Yes on the spot.
Yet, another part of me thinks that I proabably wouldn’t believe him at first and be like “Really….?” and then be all giddy.
Ugh…to–> anxiety and worry.
