by amc80 » Jul 15, 2010 I've noticed that a lot of you gals know the exact month/week/date of your impending proposal...or at least try to know Aren't you concerned about the element of surprise? My bf has told me now that the ring is picked out, I won't know when he buys it (or starts the process of getting it made, for that matter). And I'm okay with that. I mean I'd like to know if it's going to be in one year versus 3 years, but other than that, I'd like to be surprised. Which is odd for me, because I'm a total planner. I think just know that it is going to happen is enough, I don't need to know when. Am I in the minority here?
