My momma picked my BF up to take him to get my car, while I said at the house. This morning my momma told me that he asked her if it is really bothering me that he hadn’t proposed….
She said no, but that she knew I was ready. And my BF told her that he felt funny proposing with out a ring…
I have a moissanite picked out but I don’t want to order it untill we r engaged. I told him he could use a “place holder” ring.
Any other ideas that may make him feel more comfertable not proposing with THE ring?!

Welcome to the bee! You’ll find a lot of great advice here. 🙂
I’ve read a lot of posts where an expensive ring cannot be afforded, so they get a cheap one and upgrade later. In others, the guy and girl split the price of the ring. Maybe he would be open to some of these ideas?

I’m all for splitting the cost – maye even splitting the costs of both a ring for you and his wedding band. In the mean time, go find a simple ‘place holder’ ring if you can and let him know about it, or maybe your mom has a family ring you can use in the meantime?

How old are you both and how long have you been dating? Does he speak openly about marriage or does it seem to be a one-sided conversation? Not trying to be negative- just looking for a bit more information!

I am going to just hand my wish list over to him so he can order the ring… I just wont be able to change my mind anymore!
