Hey ladies. I know this question has been asked before but for some reason I am having trouble opening the posts…
How long after he bought the ring did your S.O. propose? I am antsy with anticipation. I found a printed out picture of a ring in the pocket of pants I was washing (I assure you, it was unintentional on his part leaving it there!) and our credit card bill makes it clear that such a purchase was made.
I know I sound impatient (I AM impatient )… but I feel like I’m waiting for Christmas.
Can’t wait to hear from everyone!

@jenger: As near as I can guess my FI had my ring about three weeks before asking the question. He ordered it six weeks before that.

He did it the same evening.

I’m not sure I think it was somewhere between 2-6 weeks. The proposal was not planned out at all. He had been carrying the ring around with him for awhile waiting for the right moment and then he finally couldn’t wait anymore. It wasn’t a super romantic elaborate proposal but it was really sweet that he was so excited and couldn’t wait for me to have the ring.

I think my FI had the ring about 4 weeks before he proposed. He wanted to do it right away, but had to think of something romantic for the proposal and have time to pull it off!
It was worth the wait though.

It’s crazy how excited I am. Even after having a house together there is just something different about the engagement!

@jenger: I think it was in the house for about 3 days. I know that it was ready on Thursday and he proposed that Saturday.
You’re right: it does feel different. That was definitely one of the happiest days ever. Awesome! I hope he pops the question soon!

That’s so exciting! Mine proposed on the beach, during a vacation we had been planning for a long time. He bought the ring in November and proposed in December.

he proposed 3 months after the ring was ordered, about 2-2.5 months after he actually had the ring in posession.

He had the ring for two and a half months! He was waiting to ask my dad’s permission. My parents live in Northern Ca and we live in Southern Ca….as soon as he asked my parents blessing he then told his dad and older sister (whom he is close to) and then his grandma. AND THEN lol he did it! XoXo

@jenger: we bought the ring together, waited almost 6 weeks for it to arrive. He picked it up in the morning and proposed that very evening!

@jenger: I feel your pain lol. Near as I can figure, my ring was ready in July but I have to wait til 2014! He’s superstitious about the year being 2013. He has bought me some beautiful rings to make up for the wait lol 🙂 Congratulations!!
