I wanted to share this with all of you because my friends think we are rushing. We knew after the first date that we were going to get married. He bought an e-ring after 3 weeks, but after “letting me see a picture” I confessed I didnt know if I would love it because Id never tried them on etc. So we went together and found the most perfect amazing one of a kind setting. Its been 4 months now and I love him more than anything. I know its fast but it doesnt feel rushed. We have been doing the whole his house for a week my house for a week now since the 2nd week we were togheter and I wouldnt have it any other way.
He said we would get engaged fall of 2012. Apparently my perfect setting came at a price. But last night he bought the diamond for my setting! We went together and looked at diamonds and he bought one on the spot!
Is it wrong of me to hope that the engagement comes sooner than he has planned? I mean he has all of the components?! He said he wanted to have them mostly paid off before giving them to me, which I respect, but doesnt mean I dont want it!
I dont want to jinx anything but as soon as he does ask I will post the pic of my setting! I cant wait to share!

Some people just know. Fiance and I have been together for 8 years (7 when he proposed) so for us it took a long time before we were both ready to commit to marriage. Well, him more-so than me, but I still took several years. But it sounds like you and your guy feel like you’re both ready.

There’s nothing wrong with being excited. And yes, it is very quick BUT you said yourself it isn’t happening till fall of next year. Which means you would have been together for almost a year and a half at that point. That’s not exactly crazy. Maybe this part came sooner than it does for most people, but you’re still taking your time for the rest. Maybe your friends haven’t considered that yet. Lots of people get engaged close to the 2 year mark and no one gets their panties in a bunch about that. 🙂 But it is very exciting. Sometimes, when you know, you know. It’s great that you’re both on the same page.

My Fiance bought the diamond and separately as well. He left the order confirmation for the diamond up and I saw it in October…he didn’t propose until June the following year.

Thats sounds really promising, and yes, I am sure if things come together he will propose to you before fall next year, exciting progress (and yes it is ok to be excited!)

How exciting for you guys!! I definitely think you can know quickly – Mr. PB and I have been together coming up on 5 years now, but we were talking about getting married at 3 months in. And if you’re not actually getting engaged for a while, there’s time for your friends to warm up to the idea. Once they realize this isn’t impulsive they should be more supportive. And if not, that’s what we’re here for!
Looking forward to seeing your ring when you have it on your hand 🙂
