Yup! We bought my rings together early last week and I’m just waiting for the e-ring to be sized! I will be the one to pick it up, but after that he just has to ask! I don’t even need any fancy proposal. The waiting is killing me!

If you dont’ know how he is going to ask, how are you supposed to think of a cute way of saying yes?

Cute way to say yes? No idea….

My answer was “of course.” I knew he had the ring and I was stressing about how to answer too.

What a gorgeous, classic-looking set – it looks like my great-grandmother’s from the 1930s! So timeless and romantic! 

When my partner proposes, I’m going to propose right back to him – maybe you could try something like that?

Either way, congrats!!

I would definitely play this by ear. I wouldn’t try to think of a “cute way to say yes”, but just sit back and wait for the proposal. Let it all happen naturally.

i thought i’d try to find a cute way of saying yes too (as we had already picked out and put a deposit on the ring so i was in limbo just waiting) but when he did propose all my ideas went out the window and i still turned into a complete, utter, blubbering, crying mess. so my adivce – dont plan. just let it naturally happen! lol and congrats to your pre-engagement

I am in the same situation. We went to the ring store together, he said he would buy the ring, and now I wait..

There is an entire “Waiting” section on these boards 😉  It’s amazing how many of us are in the same boat!  We’ve formed a nice support group, open to the public 😉  Welcome!

We went and bought my ring about 6 month before we got engaged and i was the one who went and picked it up when it got in store. I gave it to him and said do what you will with it! For the first little bit everytime we went out for dinner i was like, ooh is it going to happen, but it enver did. And then finally, after he had been away working for about 6 weeks the night after he got home we went for a drive, and he took me up to a beautiful lookout that shows the whole bay area of where we live and simply asked me. The waiting part of it sucked, but it did build it up to make it even more special. I think these days its so much more common to be ‘engaged to be engaged’. And for a funny, special way to say it back, maybe you could learn a sentence in another language, like I love you and of course i will marry you! And when he looks confused, just say, of course silly!

I know a girl who made the word “yes” out of carboard and put it in a ring box so that when her FI proposed she could open her ring box and the little ‘yes’ popped out on a spring
