We have been talking about being engaged by the end of the year (I am hoping for Sept/Oct) for a few months now. We went to dinner last week and were talking about our future…he mentioned that I should email him some pics of rings I like and he would do ‘everything else’. He said that he wants it (the proposal) to be a suprise.
Of course the first thing I do when we get home is email him some e-ring pics (yes, I have a folder in my computer devoted to ring pics I like). That was Sunday night…he has not even mentioned receiving the email…I know he checks it everyday so he got it for sure. Is he just keeping quiet because of the suprise element he is going for? I figured he would have at least said something! So today I had too much time on my hands and I sent him a reply email that said ‘Sz 7’. Too much??
I know he is on the same page as me regarding timeline and I know he won’t make me wait longer. I should not be letting ‘when he buys the ring’ worry me…why am I so damn anxious!! Thanks for listening Bees!!!
One of the pics I sent him of my dream ring (mine won’t be quite this huge though!)

Heh. It gets the to the best of us. 🙂 The 1st time I sent my guy a ring email I was anxious for like 3 weeks afterwards. For whatever reason I wanted acknowledgement that he had got it, input perhaps, you know, his thoughts on the ring, anything. Then one day I woke up and I wasn’t thinking about it anymore. I think it’s just a natural response to something exciting. Kinda like waiting for a Christmas present. Someone asks you what you want, you tell them, then get excited about receiving it for the next couple weeks even though Christmas won’t come for a few more months. 🙂
By The Way, Gorgeous ring! 🙂

My finace did this but it was in prep for our overseas trip, 6 months away. I spent 6 months wondering had he, hadnt he?
It IS to maintain the element of surprise so I wouldnt push the issue 🙂

The ball is in his court now – you’ve done all you can and now it is up to him to research. Might be a reason why he hasn’t brought it up again, might be devising a plan to get you one of the rings you suggested!
Too much information overload will only confuse his decision making so let him use what youve sent him, and mention it again to him in a few more weeks when he should have come up with his thoughts.

Definitely in his court- sending you easy waiting vibes!

Size 7 was too much, yeah.
Othwerwise nevermind! He clearly said surprise, so keep wondering, just don’t ask, talk, mention it again.

I dn’t think Size 7 was necessarily too much. That’s really useful information!
But saying anything else before a few months has passed would be.

A quick update to this post…SO and I are making dinner tonight and he says to me out of the blue…’you were supposed to be doing research for me and you still haven’t gotten around to it’…I asked what he was talking about….he says ‘it has something to do with our future’….I ask if he is talking about the e-ring pics…he says ‘yes’….I told him I sent them to him weeks ago (july 31st to be exact). WELL…I guess I did’nt realize that when we moved into our new house back in Jan that he changed his email address since we bundled our tv internet ect. (I have had no reason to email him since then since we live together). HE NEVER GOT THE DAMN PICS! I knew it was odd that he never mentioned the pics!!! So of course I email him the pics immediately after we finish dinner and he is now upstairs checking his email to make sure he got it. UGH..EPIC WAITING FAIL! I am glad he mentioned it….he has probably been thinking it was no big deal to me this whole time! At least now I am SURE he knows exactly what I want

@misskittykakes: oh lord lol. too funny! although you realize you’re now “the friend” right? As in… every waiting girl who gives her bf a hint that she’s not sure he received and wants to push it just a bit farther will now remember “that friend who sent the ring pics and he didn’t get them because he’d changed his email! so i should probably just check to be sure….” haha.

@CorgiTales:You are sooo right lol! I should have asked him about the email the day after I sent it!!!
