I am currently a 22 yr old grad student that is planning on proposing EARLY this spring. The reason for my post is almost more of a poll. Here is my story: Basically I have saved up for the ring I am purchasing for the past year and a half. This past month I finally took the plunge and made my purchase (the ring as being made as we speak). I was planning to propose on the Spring Break that we are going on together (alone) the first week of March. She has NO clue that I am proposing because she thinks I''m completely broke or at least a poor college student (which I was because my money was all going into saving for this ring). So now that I have the ring in my possession its gonna sit in a safety deposit box for a couple months and I am fine with that... actually its killing me. My question is to you ladies- If you had no idea your guy was going to propose would you rather him wait a few extra months for the romantic proposal in the Dominican on the Beach (which is the reason I planned the trip in the first place) or sooner yet less romantic setting say for New Years which will be nothing special because we will just be at my parents visiting.
