It’s time for another installment of “How I (Almost) Ruined My Marriage Proposal”! This time, picture the ground is cold and you’re all bundled up in winter clothes. This story takes place before the Winter Holidays.

While we were sitting eating lunch one day, the boyfriend challenged me. He was making fun of me for ruining his first idea for the proposal by telling him what he was going to do (see Part 1). He was chuckling, and he said, “You know nothing about it now.”

Honestly, that statement was to me more than a statement… it was a challenge. So I closed my eyes and lightly “tapped” his brain. I saw snowflakes and ice (none of which were actually on the ground at that point, since it was a very mild winter, all things considered). I took those symbols I saw behind my eyelids to mean Yule and said, “Oh yeah? Happy Holidays.”

His response: “DAMNIT!”

Second attempt blown out of the water. Kaput.

Will I learn to keep my mouth shut for Part 3? Don’t count on it…

    LOL the joys of dating an intuitive, right?! Well, sounds like he challenged you, so serves him right hehehe!! I love these stories, so please don’t keep your mouth shut 🙂

    • Hilary says:

      Well, we’re quickly coming to the conclusion of this series, Amy, so stay tuned! (Spoiler Alert: I don’t keep my mouth shut, I think he’s sticking with the Part 3 plan I ruined)

  2. Bri Saussy says:

    So hilarious Hillary-I cannot wait until the next installation!

  3. Melanie says:

    I’ve very accurately intuited the failure of two or three big projects that were very dear to the boss’ heart, so he didn’t heed my advice. I felt like Cassandra in the Greek myth! But it doesn’t to over very well with the boss to say, “I told you so!” Especially not multiple times. :o)

    • Hilary says:

      Yes, Melanie, in that case the “I told you so’s” go without saying… otherwise it’s like salt in an open wound. At this point, I’ve learned to check with people by saying, “Do you want my read on this?” If the answer is yes, I go ahead and say what I’m intuiting. If no, well then, I’ll keep my mouth shut. Sometimes people just don’t want to hear… especially when something is dear to their heart!

    That’s so funny, Hilary! I’m looking forward for the next story!
    My intuition helped me to cushion unpleasant surprise when my now ex-boyfriend announced that he needs time-off, the day before I knew that it’s going to happen, so it took him by surprise when I said it was the best solution for both of us.

  5. Your poor boyfriend! LOL I wonder what would happen if you let him believe he surprised you:)

  6. Jessica says:

    Oh, that’s kinda funny! Poor guy! The third time’s the charm, though — I bet he won’t drop ANY hints or challenges!
