please please try not to get too bummed out if the ring box is still there! in the other thread all the ladies were saying to let him do it in his own time. you HAVE to. i know it’s hard. but just keep in mind that he probably has a plan in mind and getting upset might spoil your perfect proposal!!

also, you need to stop listening to this coworker. i think this is a major part of the problem!!! stop living and breathing the proposal, relax, and just let it happen.

Well, he might leave the box but take the ring?  Then your best bet is to just leave the box be!

It’s like Schrodinger’s Cat… it’s both there and not until you open the box, so why not just assume if the box is there, the ring isn’t?  

Just don’t look, because then you might make the ring suddenly appear or disappear…

Definitely stop listening to other people, get your mind off of the proposal and just relax.  You’re putting way too much into this and you need to just step away and take a break.  Watch a movie, or some garbage reality shows.  Buy a celeb tabloid and read it and laugh.  Just seriously take a break from worrying about this.

I think you should take a step back and see why you are placing all of your relationship security on the status of your ring.  I have a feeling this is displaced from something unrelated to your boyfriend.

Get a manicure! I love manicures. I tend to freak out as well and I would definitely not listen to the coworker. let your beau have this as a surprise for you. It sounds like he really wants it to be special for you. As the control freak that I am I would be freaking out too. After all I am the op in has waiting got you majorly pissed. Oddly enough after that vent I am over it and I am glad that I vented here instead of at him. It was perfect

You need to CHILLLAX Hun! That’s the only advice I can give! You are stressing too much, your blood pressure is probably sky high! Smile Don’t stage any ring box, he will find a way to make it happen! Go with the flow or drink a glass of reisling! That works for me, it helps calm your nerves! LOL

I agree with everybody you need to relax. It seems from your posts that he really wants to get engaged. Life sometimes has a different timing then what we would want…

Relax and have a great weekend!  Be happy for what you have with your BF.  Things don’t change dramatically just because he puts a ring on your finger!  Trust me… my FI and I have been together 3.5+ years and there is no difference in our relationship just because we are now engaged.  We love each other just as much as before, and we make each other happy… that’s what’s important.  If you guys are committed to each other and are happy, then you have a leg up on 50% of marriages out there!  🙂
