For those of you who haven''t been reading the last page or two of my "If You Got To Choose" thread, things seem to be moving very quickly towards me being engaged, and I thought I turn it into a bit of a game for everyone.


The highlights, in chronological order (starting from Wednesday):

--he''s asked me if I like champagne
--he''s asked if he "needs to ask my parents for permission"
--telling me he was originally going to propose on my birthday (the 12th), but then I messed it up!
--telling me he had an even better idea for a proposal and would make it more special
--telling me that he''s told his parents we''ll be engaged "imminently"

Also, know that on April 1st (no trick
) we''re flying out to the US for 2 1/2 weeks to see my family and friends, so that''s *probably* the outside date....I''d be surprised if he wanted to fly with the ring in his pocket, but who knows?

So! Place your bets. What day do you think he will propose?

Before Monday the 23rd of March. So 9 or less days. Since I said 10 days or less yesterday and all.

And I'm holding firm at $0.50.


ETA: do I have to be more specific?

Meh, you could be as specific or non-specific as you want. Just figured it'd be fun to turn it into a game!


I would like him to do it tonight, but I'm not sure if he will do it this weekend since he's working both this morning/early afternoon and tomorrow again, same hours. Plus we're supposed to go out to a blues club tonight with some friends for my birthday....but he knows I'm not 100% set on going, so...dunno.

Wow, this is awesome. It seems as if some men can find it a very difficult occasion, with nerves stretched so tight, it is very easy for the girl to upset them!
My DH remembers the proposal as 'I thought you were going to say no! You took so long to answer? What was the problem?'
I didn't mean for it to be that way... I wasn't sure if he was serious or not, and didn't respond immediately because I didn't want to look like a fool!


It's going to be great Gwendolyn, I hope you're soaking up the atmosphere in this special 'count-down' time!!

Tonight. And I like my suggestion (from elsewhere) but I wouldn''t do it just in case it scares him off.

You know, this is such a lovely change from him being a MIW, to you actually being a LIW. I am just so so so excited for you my dear!!!!

Thanks for the dust, Trill!

Haha, oh dear, Lara, that doesn''t sound like especially romantic memories he has of the proposal! But it does make sense if he was all stressed about it and you didn''t respond the way he thought you would. Just watch, that sort of thing will happen with J and me--I don''t seem to have this engagement thing down very well.


As for the countdown, I am absolutely enjoying it! It''s not often things are a surprise for me, so this is really fun and exciting for me.

Aww, Gwen, how exciting!! I''m so glad you feel ready for this step. You don''t think he''ll wait to ask your parents in person (if indeed you told him he needed to ask them?) I think that would be pretty special - proposing while you''re near your friends and family. Either way, it''ll be soon! Hooray!!


(And, Freke, you''re not kidding about not sleeping. Go to bed, young lady!!)

Yes'm!!!

And yes, that means I'm still awake. Ugh. This is why I shouldn't be allowed to take naps in the middle of the day!!!

Going to bed now (to read a book and decompress) so I can fall asleep quicker!!!!! And good morning East Coasters!!!!

I vote March 18, because 18 is twice my lucky number and this is plan #2.

I''m going to say April 3rd. I''m betting he''ll do it with some sort of familial involvement/surprise. I am saying this because my engagement happened on the trip to visit my family overseas in February. Also, I''ll bet a dollar.

I want to say March 30. Because it''s before you guys fly out, plus that''s when I get back and if you get engaged then, I can congratulate you right away (and you know that''s important, right???
)

ooh this is so exciting! I loved the lead up to my engagement. It was brilliant! I''d say that he''ll do it before you fly home so that you can tell everyone.

I''m going to guess the day before you leave for the U.S.

I just have to say that I am so, SO excited for you, Gwen! Things have just been going really well for you with the job and finally getting to live with him intead of having a LDR--I think getting engaged and getting to spend 2.5 weeks here with your family is just icing on the cake! Yay for you, Gwen!!
