I know this has been asked so so many times, but I am dying to know when he is going to pop the question. Asking me to look at rings I like and finding out my size was a total shock (even though we did plan to get engaged before the end of the year!). Going crazy wondering when it will happen! I don’t have any big events coming up…except my birthday next month. But why ask me for all this now if he isn’t going to ask soon? Maybe to budget?

From my time on the Bee, I’d say you never can tell.
My SO looked at rings, took me ‘shopping’ (just looked though), and he still hasn’t bought anything I don’t think – I’m about 90% sure of that.
We never talked numbers explicitly, but we both know how much the budget is and I know he has it. I think he’s just waiting because I keep fussing between Round Brilliant and Oval diamonds.
Good luck and I hope your SO gets something beautiful for you! x

Keeks: You really can’t tell. The first time my FI took me ring shopping was over a year before she actually proposed. It wasn’t lackadaisical “looking” either. We went into three specific stores, and she asked the jeweler to bring out specific styles that she had researched to see how they would look on me. The second time we went was about two months before I actually got a ring, but I know that she had been researching diamonds and crap the whole time. The second time was so I could basically approve the setting she choose before she picked a center RB and got it made 🙂
Some people move faster, some move slower. I would try not to worry about it too much so you don’t drive yourself CRAZY!!! I’m so glad that I wasn’t familiar with the term “waiting” and this site during that time because I would’ve tortured myself even more! Lol
