My FI proposed just over four months ago. I wrote a small post about it here. Long story short, the proposal was not really romantic, he asked if I wanted to marry him, I said yes and that was it – no ring, no romantic things to say etc. I could not find a ring I wanted for about a month, then we had to wait for the holidays and work got into way, but finally he has the ring now.
I jokingly asked him if he would do a “real” proposal when he gives me the ring and he actually agreed. So, we talked about it and he wants to do something special and romantic. The problem is that he’s extremely busy at work now, working weekends and nights, so there was no time for romance.
I just want my ring already!!! He asked me yesterday if I wanted to wait for him to do something nice or if I just wanted to have the ring and I chose to wait, but… Oh, it’s been 4 months already and I still don’t have a ring on my finger.
Just wanted to vent here 🙂

Don’t feel too bad! I’ve been married (registry civil wedding) for 5 months and we haven’t gotten round to buying engagement or wedding rings yet!
We’re doing the whole “reception party” thing in November tho so I’m hoping by then we’ll have found something.
I think at the end of the day, when you’ve found someone you love and want to share your life with, you have the rest of your lives to look forward to rings and things so whats waiting a lil longer gonna harm? 😉

@kelmac: Not going crazy yet, but getting there 🙂
@Claire_2010: I know 🙂 Honestly, if we decided not to buy me a ring then I’d be totally fine with that as well. I actually was seriously considering only getting a wedding band, but FI wanted me to have a ring. So, now I know there’s a ring, I know he has it, but the waiting is killing me 🙂

Don’t feel bad! I know exactly how you feel. My fiance and I got engaged 1/1/09, he proposed while on my bed, as the ball dropped. Nothing fancy, but of course I said yes and he was super ecstatic and so was I! But get this…I waited 2 years for my actual ring!!!! He of course got me a fake, a cz sterling silver ring to hold me over. Reason being was because he wasn’t working and couldn’t find a job at the time, so he was strapped for money. Any money he did get was to pay for gas to come and see me because we were long distance, about an hr away from each other.
But now, I have my ring, and I couldnt be happier! We’re getting married this December, and I know it’s hard waiting for it! But try and be patient and wait for that moment. Either way, if he re-proposes romantically, I guarantee that you’ll remember the first time he asked you, better, than the time he re-proposed. My fiance re-proposed when he gave me my ring, but I still liked the original proposal better because it was genuine, and it was THE TIME. 🙂 So that’s something to think about haha
