Well we where supposed to go ring shopping yesterday but………When we where leaving the house he hadnt said anything so I asked “hey babe, did you still want to stop by the jewelry store” He looked at me irritated and said “um NO that place is an all day trip…no” I tried my best not to let myself have a bad attitude but it kinda killed me inside. Am I overreacting. Holy cow he was so into looking at rings last weekend and yesterday it was gone. I had waited all week and not mentioned anything about engagements or rings or anything. We are supposed to go to Vegas for the weekend and I had my hopes up again. His mom mentioned yesterday that his sis will be here for two and a half weeks at the end of June. She tells him “Hey, lets get this show on the road”. He just laughed. I know she wishes that we’d get married while his sis is here. She only comes into town every couple of years. I wanted to ask if he’d want to do that….But I didnt have the guts. I was doing good not thinking about any of it and this whole ring thing kinda put me in a depression. UGH. Thoughts please bees.

Try not to let depression win! I’ve been through that same exact scenario. My guy said to me. “When I come up for my visit, lets get this ring shopping thing out of the way.” He gets here and just like that he disregarded the whole thing. He later tells me to send him photos of 4 different styles of rings and my ring size. So, technically we never went ring shopping. But, that was a very frustrating day. I hid my true feelings and disappointment as well. They really don’t have a clue sometimes.
On the flip side of things, I am anticipating what his pick is going to be! Maybe that could be an option for you as well, send him photos of what you want and your ring size. My guy did tell me that he preferred to shop alone <rolling eyes>

That really sucks, sorry to hear 🙁
I keep telling myself…. it’s going to happen sooner or later so try not to rush or worry about it!
It’s hard not to want it RIGHT NOW. Patience is a virtue, I am discovering. It sure isn’t easy.
I am trying to let him take his time, but it’s starting to get incredibly frustrating!!

I’m so sorry to hear your dissapointment. You know actions speak louder than words so if he has a habit of telling you something and not doing it then I would just stop taking him seriously about ring shopping until he’s the one initiating the trip to the jewelry shop. This should not have to be a stressful event.

I agree with KIKI82. Besides, ummm it does NOT take all day to ring shop..I went to several different stores and it took 2 hours TOPS. Sorry he is being a brat!! Hopefully he will be taking you (for real) very very soon! Have fun in Vegas (let me know how chilly it is..Ill be going at the end of the month) and try not to let “engagement brain” take over!!

Thanks Girlies…wow I cannot believe how friggin depressed I am today. UGH. He’s a very “follow through” guy so its weird….and it was his idea…I havent mentioned anything about weddings/engagements since our “talk” at the begining of Jan. He just seemed to be in a pissy mood…and then I got us lost going to Ikea rofl…I felt really bad for like a minute! Then I was like…um no…he deserves it! Wrong I know! lol. Its just so unlike him. We didnt argue or anything…it was just a really weird day. Especially since I dont want to pick out the ring…I dont want to know anything about it. Ive mentioned it. But he wanted me to look anyway. ugh…hes confusing me.
I’ll let you know Fuschia! I hope you get your bling there, girl! 😉
