My SO mentioned a ring for the first time the other day. My heart stopped I think. He asked “What would you do if I came over with a ring one day and got down on one knee?” I just laughed because I couldn’t say my real reaction, which would be to do a backflip. Haha. We are both older and previously married. I’m just excited to be with someone who can make me feel that love and excitement. It’s a wonderful thing.

It just so happened that my best friend at work at the time announced her engagement the day of my first date with SO. When we were telling each other about our days, I mentioned how I knew about her engagement and kept it a secret until she was finally ready to announce it at work that day…
…and he segued into asking me what kind of ring I like. On our first date. I know. Needless to say, he recognized his faux pas when he noticed the stricken look on my face and didn’t bring it up again for a while. 😛

SO mentioned a ring and how I would look good in a white dress after like 8 or 9 months of dating. Here we are 4.33 years into our relationship now, and he never talks about anything wedding or engagement related if he can help it, and still no ring haha. It sounds like your SO is planning something, though :). So cute ;]

- Wedding: July 2017 - Bristol zoo
We were dating for about 20 months when I asked if he ever thought about it… and he said yes… but he’s never bought it up himself and we’re coming up to 30 months now.

@Lavrosebride: I can’t really remember but voted after 1 year. We started talking about marriage before then but it was more hypothetical; it was at 3.5 years that we actually seriously said that WE wanted to get married, to each other, and felt ready for it. We started talking about rings maybe a year after that, and he proposed a year after that, after 5 years and 3 months together.
We weren’t in a position to get engaged at under a year, nor would we have wanted to, so I can’t imagine we’d have talked about something as specific as the ring at that point, though I could be wrong; it’s a LONG time ago lol

He mentioned “the ring” after 3 weeks of dating but that was before he lost his job, got health problems and medical expenses so not ring yet:(

We discussed marriage after about a year. We agreed that neither of us were interested but were happy to carry on in a permanent and committed relationship. Our next proper discussion about marriage was his proposal 17.5 years later when we both agreed that we were really interested in getting married. So we did. 3 weeks later!
I’m sure none of you will want to wait quite this long though!

Even though he didn’t mention the jewelry for a while, we’ve picked a name and godparents for our first child, so I know he’s serious, lol.
