ok so you all probably read my previous post about my bf and i, its still up if you didn’t read it yet. Anyways would it be pressuring if i told my bf my ring size?? ….i was curious today about what my ring size is because i never knew exactly so i was walking around walmart and tried on some fake rings..found out a 6 is perfect ..7 could fit but kinda slides a tad so im thinking a 6 is better since snug but not tight. So after i was thinking hmm should i tell him to make it easier on him?..i mean our whole relationship he has been saying when we are 5 years we will get engaged(which is in february!)…,then this year says not this year but soon…sooo im hoping if he means not this year for real…early next year..im hoping:)! He said other day we would probably be having kids within 4 years and he knows i want to be married for 2-3 years first..when i was questioning him what he meant he like “…there is no time line we will get engaged when i feel the time is right”..so i dropped it.
I did tell him that if or when he proposes i want him to video tape it like he did when he gave me my necklace. Lol it was soo romantic it was christmas he wrapped my necklace in a bunch of boxes so it ended up in this huge box so im like wtf?…till got to this tiny box…i was like shaking cause i thought that was “the” day(he knew i thought thatlol).my face was priceless lol!! even though it wasn’t what i thought i still loved it and was super shocked because he said 3 years for a necklace or earrings and it was only 2 1/2 years. so hoping he is alittle early on the engagement too:)
Would it be pressuring if i say “just say you know if or when u go ring shopping my ring size is 6”.?????

I don’t know what happened in the other thread, but I wouldn’t try to control it at all. Rings can be sized if it’s not the right size…or he can ask or figure it out on his own.

@truelove25: I’ve said my ring size casually to my SO 🙂 The holidays are coming up and there’s going to be a lot of engagement ring commercials. Maybe when you’re watching TV, and after one airs, you could tease him and say- ‘so my ring size is ___ in case you were wondering,’ then laugh and grin teasingly 🙂
Are you sure your ring size is a 6 though? Have you thought about going to a jeweler and having them size you professionally? I thought I was a size 6 too until I went to a jeweler, and found out I am a 5.75.

@truelove25: Most rings come in size 7 and it’s not uncommon to need to have your ring sized after the proposal. I would keep quiet about the ring size. If he wants to know, he’ll figure it out or ask. But I also think it’s a good idea to bring up your prior convo about getting engaged by your 5th annviersary so you can find out if that is still the plan before getting your heart set on that date a D Day.

I’m sorry, but I wouldn’t be with someone who couldn’t talk to me openly about OUR future together. Are you kidding me? He’ll propose when HE thinks the time is right? It doesn’t have to be when YOU think it’s right, but it should be when you BOTH think it’s right. Don’t be pushy and annoying, but having a conversation about it and getting a timeline should be easy enough to do. Has the 5 year timeline already passed?
Also – men can figure out ring sizes on their own. They’ve been doing it for centuries now.

@truelove25: If he wants to know he’ll figure it out. Maybe he’ll be as “subtle” as my SO was…
He asked to see my right hand ring…analyzes it for a while… looks at the stamps on the inside and ask what they mean (10K = 10 karat gold, 2 = 2 tone gold, G= duh, gold lol) and he’s like “There’s no size in here?” I said no so he tries it on his pinky! LOL I know he was gauging the size….

@chic_and_fabulous: +1. I thought I was a 5.5…..I’m a 4.25. Make sure before you drop any hints, 3 rezises were a pain in the butt!

@ValerieBee03: Ha! Mine was ever-so-subtle as well. He certainly thought he was, which was very cute… Almost as if they can barely contain their little “secret”. Makes me smile thinking about it.
My sister (at his direction) was asked to give me a simple, silver ring as an early birthday present. It was supposed to be too small, so I was forced to tell her my ring size. He didn’t want to have to ask me directly. I obviously caught on, but it was a cute attempt at being sneaky.

@truelove25: you seem to be overthinking his actions a little, but to answer your question: no, do not tell him anything.

@truelove25: Men have been figuring out what their girlfriends’ ring sizes are for decades. I wouldn’t worry about it. Leave a ring you like to wear out and he’ll find it or he’ll ask someone. Personally, my SO & I were having dinner with my newly married friend when I admired her ring & she took it off for me to try on and it was a perfect fit. She said “You wear 8.5? You mean all these years I could have been borrowing your cool rings?! Dammit!” lol So the man heard that and now knows my ring size.

I don’t know why you don’t just talk to him about it. It’s been 5 years… how long is it going to take him to know if he’s ready? Geez. I wouldn’t put up with that!

I told FI my ring size. I said….”for when the time comes, I’m a 4.75 ;)”
I see most women don’t like that, but it worked for us

actually…since you girls are saying how your guy figured it out …maybe! he already knows??.. :)last year he took my ring off that i wear on my left hand, ring finger randomly and started to see which finger it fit on his…the year before we were at his sisters she laid her rings on coffee table beside us so she could wash dishes..i was looking at them and he says “which is the engagement ring..and the wedding band?”.i looked at him like your dumb seriously you don’t know lol and i tried it on as well..so maybe she did that on purpose because she knew i would want to look and try it on?

@memo: you think the fake jewlery sizes are accurate? ..a 6 was snug but not tight i could still easily take it off and put it on..a 7 was just right but felt like it would slip off my finger a tad.

My husband and I were looking at his (then future) wedding ring and he goes, “Oh, they only come in size increments of five.” I was clicking through them and goes, “I’d need to special order one if I wanted one.” He asked why and I told him that my size was a 4 and they didn’t.
I was just rambling casually and told him my ring size. I thought nothing of it.
