He's about to propose to me - How do I act surprised??

Ok a few months ago I made a cosmic order for my boyfriend to propose to me before the end of the year. It hasn't happened yet and I'm not seeing him tonight so obviously it will happen either tomorrow night or NYE as he's staying with me both these nights.

I don't want him to know his proposal was cosmically ordered so I'll have to act all surprised when he does it, even though I know what's about to happen!

Any tips on acting surprised when you're really not? I'm so excited grin

Enjoy this lovely part of your relationship Capella smile

Nice update Capella. I feel a bit mean for being rather scathing earlier blush.

Capella, good on you for updating. Many would NC and let it die. Brave.

That is a very dignified update.

Ruprekt Wed 02-Jan-13 20:11:56

Well done for coming back.

Now tell us other things you have cosmically ordered cos we are all fascinated.

Capella thanks for getting back. Was thinking of you.

GiveMeSomeSpace Wed 02-Jan-13 18:29:22

OP big respect for coming back with an update. I'm definitely not laughing at you. Well done!

DozyDuck Wed 02-Jan-13 18:23:30

What did he do that was special though? smile

BertieBotts Wed 02-Jan-13 17:42:48

That's a nice ending smile Glad to hear it all worked out as it should... and perhaps a lesson in careful what you wish for grin

CabbageLeaves Wed 02-Jan-13 17:39:22

Capella - good on you for returning to update. Perhaps cosmic ordering does have your best interests at heart

HellonHeels Wed 02-Jan-13 17:02:55

You know OP, I think the Universe understood your cosmic order and responded. You obviously weren't as committed to your order as you thought and the Universe heard your real feelings grin

tribpot Wed 02-Jan-13 16:58:06

Sounds like the universe gave you the right outcome, OP. Thanks for coming back to update us.

forgetmenots Wed 02-Jan-13 16:33:04

Not laughing at you, glad it worked out even though it didn't, iyswim!

No Fassbender, naked or otherwise, for me so I'm not sure the joke is on you OP smile

janey1234 Wed 02-Jan-13 16:21:35

ps definitely not laughing at you.

janey1234 Wed 02-Jan-13 16:21:20

Very impressed you came back. Maybe next year!

IslaValargeone Wed 02-Jan-13 16:17:35

Fair play to you Capella for returning with an update.
Nobody is laughing at you either, I really hope that you aren't too disappointed and that the relationship continues to make you happy and takes you to where you want it at a sensible pace.

MrsHoarder Wed 02-Jan-13 16:15:32

Well done for being brave enough to update, probably for the best, have a brew

AppleOgies Wed 02-Jan-13 16:13:55

We are not going to laugh... Enjoy your relationship and getting to know each other better. If he is the one , he will propose when he's ready without all this cosmic thingamajig!

OverlyYappyAlways Wed 02-Jan-13 16:11:34

Very brave, I would be very upset.

dequoisagitil Wed 02-Jan-13 16:07:55

Well done on being so brave as to update.

Aah, OP - very well done on the update smile

OverlyYappyAlways Wed 02-Jan-13 16:03:03

Fanjo you are making me giggle, I am not even drunk today, please stop it...ahem...

I would give the cosmic order another go, I know no-one believes me but I stared at a picture of wooden flooring for my house for 2 months, it turned up Christmas Eve, it's in the hall in its boxes, I have it though,that tells me staring at pictures and wishing works... I won't even tell you about the whole Bob thing...

Good move OP leave the bastard date a bit!
