My boyfriend has had a ring in his sock drawer since the beginning of January. Needless to say, 6 1/2 months later, I’m VERY anxious. My mom and stepdad are also anxious, my stepdad says in a joking way, “He should ask her, so this wedding doesn’t mess up my golf schedule next year!” They own a jewelry store, the ring is from them.
We’re going to a MN Twins game next Wednesday, I’ve never been to Target Field. We’re both very excited to go, we’ve had the tickets for about 2 months. I have a feeling, because I’ve been telling him every day how excited I am to go to the game, that he may propose there. He said he’s waiting for the right time.
Buuuuut, if it doesn’t happen, I will be in tears. For sure. We’ve been together for 3 1/2 years, we’ve lived together for that whole time, almost. We have a great relationship, it feels weird calling him my boyfriend, he’s so special to me, “boyfriend” seems silly and juvenile.
It’s tough! My heart goes out to all the girls in great relationships with great guys, and are waiting! 🙂

@MissMoscato: Don’t ruin a great date night! Go without any expectations of a proposal, just go and have a great time. If he proposes then it’s just that more of an added bonus! Good luck!

Don’t ruin your night. Have a great time with your SO! I know that it’s hard being a waiting bee and trying to keep sane! As of this week my SO has the ring purchased and it’s being sized. So by the weekend or early next week he will have it in his possession. That’s about all I will know. But I’m soooo anxious to see what he will come up with for the proposal and just to be engaged to my best friend. **sending engagement vibes your way** Hopefully we aren’t waiting much longer. Good Luck!

I really don’t know how so many of you can handle KNOWING that your SO has the ring! I’ve read so many comments about the ring in the sock drawer just waiting to be worn. HOW DO YOU HANDLE IT????? All I’m aware of are a few ring websites that SO visited and I’m losing my mind!! haha. You guys have much more willpower than I do. I think I would just start wearing it one day.
Hang in there. It’s bound to happen soon. If not, then seriously, just start wearing it..

I understand where you’re coming from! I knew my FI got the diamond in November, and we had a rough plan that we would be engaged by the end of the summer. Every time we would go out, I would be expecting something! I ended up ruining a lot of nice evenings for myself. It’s really hard, but try not to focus on the possibility of a proposal. What I would do is the second I would realize those thoughts were creeping into my mind, I would tell myself to stop thinking them, it’s not going to happen. He did end up surprising me with a proposal–we live in two different states right now, and he surprised me by coming home and setting up a proposal.
Good luck! I hope he does propose soon :-).

I hope it happen at the game…but try not to be too disapointed if it dosen’t. I can’t imagine how hard it would be to know my SO had the ring!! I know my SO does not have a ring yet and I am anxious all the time! Good luck…and let us know what happens!

Good luck! It’s hard, but just enjoy the game and the night out. It will happen at the right time and will be great. He’s had it since January, I’d be going crazy right now so hang in there and I hope it comes soon 🙂

Thanks for all the encouraging words, Wedding Bee always calms my nerves! Last night, my boyfriend and I watched “Up” and we were talking after and I asked him if he was going to take me to Paradise Falls someday, he said, “I think we’re already in Paradise Falls. It can only get better from here, right?!” I love him. I’ll give you an update if it happens this week! 🙂

I don’t know if my SO looks at rings online. He never really brings up engagements – if I do at all, he gets aggravated and references his answers from the last time that I asked about it (even if it’s been weeks or months since I last brought it up). I don’t know if he has a ring, if he plans to propose anytime in the next year, the next few years, etc. It’s very much an ‘if’ and we’ve been together for 3 years. 3 years and still an ‘if.’
I understand it must be difficult waiting: but you have concrete proof that he’s going to propose. It’s not an ‘if,’ but it’s a matter of ‘when’ now. Even if it doesn’t happen at this ball game, you know it’s going to and probably soon (any vacations or special landmarks coming up?). Try to find some comfort in the fact that you KNOW it’s very, very likely going to happen – so many don’t get that opportunity!

The game came and went…no ring. We had a blast!
Next event…? Not sure. His birthday is September 11, perhaps then? I don’t know, I’m at a loss!

@KayDubs: That exact thing happened to a guy I know – he just texted one of his friends and was like, yeah, so she found the ring, she’s wearing it.
@MissMoscato: hope it’s soon, but he sounds like a great guy either way 🙂
