Has anyone proposed back to their partner after they proposed to you? It's something I've always loved the idea of and am strongly considering, but the exact circumstances of my relationship are making me hesitate. I would love some inspiration from anyone who has done this!
For anyone curious about my specific thoughts & situation (long post, my apologies)...
I know a few people who have double proposed, but in every instance both partners wanted to wear an engagement ring. My partner is clear in that he doesn't want a ring, although he has expressed interest in a nice watch for the wedding itself.
On top of that, his proposal was very casual—no knee drop, a discussion after he asked, no ring (we'll be picking one together, at some point). Very much what I wanted, and very much our style. Any proposal I do would be casual and private.
I'm considering writing him a short story (I write fiction as a hobby), and/or getting him a watch now. I'm leaning toward the story--I worry about offending him by buying a watch before we've picked my engagement ring. We haven’t picked a date or looked at venues yet, so proposing back in the next month, before we really start planning, feels ideal--so I would be writing on a deadline, haha!
Or…I could not propose back at all! Wanting a double proposal is definitely more important to me than it is to him, and I'm a bit worried he'll find it silly since we are using his proposal as the engagement date. Input greatly appreciated
