Hi bees. My man got me a gorgeous morganite ring that I’ve been eyeing up. How do I know? Well, he’s not one for details and about a month ago he suddenly asked me EVERY detail about this ring..then later that night when I was daydreaming about it again, I went to the etsy page and it was suddenly sold. Plus, a few days later he asked me to send an email for him and I saw a receipt in his inbox. Like really? Maybe hide it? But still…I’m not trying to be obvious and say that I know…but I’m DYING to know why he has it and hasn’t asked me yet. I’m trying to be as patient as possible…thinking maybe he will ask around our anniversary next month. But I’m also in an Irish Band and played a TON of shows over St. Patrick’s Day weekend and thought he would ask then, since he once made a comment that asking me at one of my shows would be great. I was pretty devastated when he didn’t ask during that time. I’m trying to not let the cat out of the bag, but it’s eating me alive.
What do I do?? What would you do if you were me?

IncredibleShrinkingBride: ahh its so tough my FI and i customized my ring and when it was ready we had to both make sure it looked good. So as we were picking it up we looked at wedding bands for him and he found one that he loved so we bought it. Welll we went home and he wore his ring the entire time but had my ring too. So the next day we woke up and he was admiring his ring and i was complaining that i dont have a ring yet then he asked if i wanted to wear mine i said well yeah, he then asked me to marry him it was totally like us and it wasnt romantic but it was memorable in a funny unoficial way, it worked for us but either way it could have been more exciting if i wasnt nagging haha so be patient!

IncredibleShrinkingBride: I found out my FI had my ring because I accidently saw a picture of it on his phone- come to find out he had it a month before I found out! He was planning on doing it on vacation in June, or when we got our puppy in April. Once I knew he had it, I thought I’d be more patient- WRONG. I wanted to see it again and again! He knew I knew he had it, so he was impatient for me to have it as well. He asked me a week after I found out he had it. All I have to say is try and be patient, it SUCKS but he must have something special planned!

All you can do is try and be patient. Don’t push him. If he’s bought the ring then you know it’s coming!! He will propose when he’s ready.
My SO has my ring too. He’s had it for about a month. I’m dying with anticipation too!!!

Thanks ladies. I know I need to wait. I think that’s what’s driving me nuts the most. Like normally, I’d talk to HIM about situations where I needed to chill out…he’s obviously the patient one. I, on the other hand, am thinking about how we’ll pay for a wedding, when we’ll have it, etc. I mean there are a ton of things that get affected once we’re engaged like my braces. I have pretty severe TMJ and will need to wear upper braces for a year..so right now I’m basically RACING to get them because I’m going to be 33 this year and I want kids so I can’t fathom a very long engagement – but DON’T want to get married with braces. I know it seems stupid, but those little things like that are numerous. Like I don’t even want to book a vacation this summer until I know whether or not we’ll be financing a wedding in the next 12 months! I mean, it seems pretty feasible that we would, if he has the ring..so I’ve held off. But when he mentions the beach, it’s hard to bite my tongue.
Uuugh…This man better hurry up already. 😛

IncredibleShrinkingBride: First of all, advanced congrats! This is so exciting! I’m actually in the same boat…I found out from my sister that my BF has already purchased the ring and since then it’s been very difficult to act as I do normally. I get tempted to lead into conversations that would, could, lead to that proposal. But I figure, it’s not just a proposal for me…it’s for the both of us. I’ve been with my guy for six years and we knew we were going to get married after a couple of months together. I figure, he’s been thinking about a proposal just as long as I have…and I know he would be devestated if his surprised was ruined. So I’ve gotta wait patiently. And so do you! Enjoy this moment of waiting…it’ll happen soon! Keep us posted!
