So we have the thread about hints that we waitingbees drop for our men, but how about the hints our men may be dropping for us? Has your man done anything to hint to you the ring might be coming?
I know with my guy he won’t propose until he has a job (just finishing his PhD now), but he has dropped what I consider to be pretty decent hints.
At one point he said “Some day I’m going to give you the surprise of your life.”
Then, about a month ago, we were watching The Hangover, and at the beginning when Ed Helms’ character is talking about his relationship and how he’s going to propose and says “we’ve been together for three years, it’s time” or something like that, my guy gave me a couple pokes in my side with a goofy smile on his face. 🙂

Aww! That’s cute 🙂
My guy and I didn’t “hint” anything. We are both pretty honest, blunt people…we talked about engagement and marriage since the beginning and set time frames.

LOL! I always remember that part of the Hangover. I don’t have a lot of hints because my SO wants it to be a complete surprise. Ugh! But here are some:
– Playing with my fingers and rings
– Knowing a lot about jewelry (all of a sudden)
– Being overly sweet and understanding
– He randomly comments on women’s rings in movies (he never does this)
– Taking the lead on our Hawaii vacation in a few months (he never really likes to plan these things)
– Joking about the proposal (he thinks it’s funny if he proposes in a random place, like Burger King! Not funny)
– Talking (but not that often) about future kids, house, etc.
– Changing the subject everytime I try to bring up engagement (he really wants to surprise me)
– Just being very giggly and sneaky (changing the subject) everytime I bring up engagement
– Asking a ton of questions about my SO and I
– Mom telling me I should start planning a wedding
– Parents being overly attentive to what’s going on in my relationship

yeah boy does that some times and will randomly be like “Oh did you hear Carrie Underwood got married last week” —- uhm since when did you become so interested in celebrity weddings? or “Did you hear about the old spice dude, he did a proposal for someone” — or “so n so went on this honeymoon, what would you think about that” or “oh yeah she was asking me what kind of ring youd want so we were talking about the best place to find it”
and his family friend, flat out “so have you guys decided on the date yet?”
Just a lot of little random stuff, and I enjoy it 😉

i cant believe im posting this, but my fiance started watching say yes to the dress and ASKING if we could watch it on occasion, about a 6 weeks before he proposed. he wasn’t shy about it either and even told a few friends he was watching it. he would say things like ‘i hope blondeee doesn’t want a pnina!” it was really funny.

He asked my ring size a couple of months ago.
Although a couple of weeks ago we talked about possible wedding plans. We’re a pretty open couple and it’s easy to talk with him about it. We both know one day we want to be married to each other.

hehe @blondee! How cute!
Mine doesn’t really drop hints… but he often says “I cant wait to spend the rest of my life with you” and when we talk about marriage we will often talk about what kind of wedding we will have and it gets to a certain point and he just looks over and smiles at me.

Very cute hints!
I wish my guy was a little more open about talking about some of these things. Who knows, maybe he will be as we get closer to the actual question. Of course, I try my hardest not to bring up wedding stuff too often. 🙂

@Andromeda6- My boyfriend told me once he was going to propose at Burger King with an onion ring…haha. I don’t like Burger king and often call it nasty king, so I would HATE that. Many other things you said are common with me too.
My boyfriend is pretty open about it and we talk about it a lot. He makes different comments all the time so I’m pretty sure it’s coming soon. His hints are not very subtle.

Mine BF is a shocker. He jokes around if I change the channel on the TV or something and says “that’s another 6 months until I propose…”. I know he’s only joking though!
He’s already asked if we can somehow fit his car into our wedding, it’s his dreamcar that he got this year and I think he really just wants a professional looking photo of it.
I know it’s happening soon, and he knows I know, so we do talk about it a lot. He is currently researching rings but he doesn’t me to know when he’s got one or about to propose, so I do my best to drop hints and try to ask questions that will give me some sort of clue. I hate suprises!

We were not engaged, we had barely started discussing what we’d like for our hypothetical wedding – marriage had not been discussed… Anyway we were at a wedding once and started talking with a guy we barely knew and he started telling this guy that we were planning on getting married on a DW – the guy actually thought we were engaged, and DH didn’t correct him…

@Andromeda6: OMG that’s so funny yours joked about proposing in Burger King. My SO and I shopped, designed and purchased the ring together but I told him I want a real proposal – surprise and all. He’s response “okay – how about the McD’s drive thru? – it will be unique, I bet no one has ever got proposed to there before” Needless to say, he got the death stare and I warned him I would say NO if he tried to pull that!
I don’t have any hints other than the ring is in, we’ll have it in hand Sunday and then it could be any time.

A few days ago he was joking that when he goes on his trip he’s going to bring me back a fake diamond and I wouldn’t know the difference.
I was like “I’m getting everything you get me now appraised, I dont trust you” He thought this was so funny.
But in the back of my mind I was think at least he’s thinking about it right?

We went ring shopping 3 years ago (talk about waiting! ugh!).
July 4th weekend he took me to have my finger measured.
A few days after that, he told me I wasn’t allowed to check the mail for the next month.
I was trying to put his underwear away when folding laundry last weekend, and he told me to “keep out of that drawer.”
He took me to a super fancy dinner last night at one of his professor’s restaurants. He was being super sweet and holding my hand and gazing into my eyes. I thought it was going to happen, but he said “this is a very important week for us.” So, maybe I’m getting a week-long proposal. Thursdays are our date nights, so I’m thinking between now and next Thursday.

We talk about it fairly openly, but yes he does drop hints as well;
– Playing with my rings and fingers all the time
– Commenting on other women’s rings
– We went to a jewellery shop last weekend to have the watch I gave him as a birthday present resized, and while we were waiting he was looking at the rings and said “Look at all the nice stuff they have in here!”
– Talking about our future all the time
– And two days ago he said the sweetest thing, “Why would anyone not want to marry you?”
