@southsun:  I am sorry! It seems so strange that he has had it for so long, but hasn’t done anything. I am happy you had your talk! At least you know now that he intends to propose and you have the amount of time you are willing to wait.

@southsun:  Sorry he’s been sitting on your ring! I hope he gets moving on it soon!

Possessing the ring is normally a good sign and who knows, maybe now you know about the ring he’s trying to throw you off? Either way, a proposal is on its way! x

Maybe I’m just crazy, but at that point, I would have found the ring and put it on myself. My SO would have come home from work and I would have just pointed to my finger and said, “Oh, we’re engaged now. Plan accordingly.”

A YEAR!? My SO wouldn’t DARE!!!!

I am so sorry it’s been so long :/ Even though you are exhausted, try talking to him again, maybe? Ask him why he is waiting so long to propose. Is there any other reason you can think for why he is waiting so long?

Things change, love. He says a year now, but he might move things up. ( I swear men change their minds more than women.) Keep your head up!

@southsun: Sorry to hear about your frustrations. I would probably react the same way as you, but then I tried to see it from his perspective. The situation is a little different with him sitting on the ring for a year because it’s an heirloom ring – he didn’t go out and buy the ring. Perhaps he got a hold of the ring before he was ready to propose and make that kind of commitment? Or he has stage fright, or he has been planning for a very specific day/event to propose. There are so many possible explanations for it. At least this new piece of information has helped you understand previous miscommunications and why he is acting differently.
