I’m new here, been lurking (and drooling, and scheming…) for awhile. SO and I have been together for almost 4 years, living together for 3.5, and we went from the “hey, maybe after everything we’ve been through, we should think about getting engaged” stage to the “we are seriously ring shopping” stage VERY quickly…maybe 2 months? So my ring-to-be (I know what it is exactly!) is getting sized and set with C&C moissanite as we speak, and they said 1-2 weeks until SO can pick it up. Since we have done everything together, he says he’ll do the (surprise) proposal very soon after he gets it. The last few days are killing me! I had to share, how are you/did you deal with the (albiet short) wait?

Well, I got quite excited when we bought the ring and it got delivered in December, but it’s not on my finger yet. Hope you get it soon!

Distract yourself, go out with friends, clean your house, read that book youve been meaning to read. Give him some space to scheme and plan.

i was slightly crazy in that time, he picked it up on the 23rd December and proposed on the 19th January, i was chomping at the bit, but I did summer semester at uni and that distracted me a little bit

I know… waiting is fun hey!! Hopefully he doesnt make you wait too long. My Fiance and I have our venue booked for this Septmber and I still dont have my ring *Humph!* He told me I had to wait for the grass to be green. I hope hes just trying to thow me off, but if he doesnt do it soon…I’m going out to pick up a case of green spray paint and ”treat” the lawn!
Good luck – you’re not alone 🙂

We picked up my ring in late Jan and he didn’t propose until mid march last year. it was KILLING me waiting for it and I kept bugging him about it….I think I put a bit too much pressure on him…he really wanted to go over the top with his surprise, but I ended up kinda ruining it. Guess guys don’t quite understandthe anticipation of waiting for that ring!!!!
My advice: give him space, let him do it exactly as he wants to because the last thing he wants is to disappoint you! It will make it even more special when you finally get it!
