My husband had the ring in our storage locker for 6 months before he proposed, in a helicopter over niagra falls (:

Just wait it out

Why do you have to do anything or feel a certain way? Just let the guy propose when he feels the time is right. You know it’s coming. Why don’t you just enjoy the ride?

Use this time to start working on strengthening your relationship, and talking about the future.

And hang back and enjoy! At least you know it’s coming, you don’t really need to worry too much about the “when”

My FI is also a law student – and he waited three weeks to give me the ring. We didn’t have any special occasions coming up, he just was waiting for a good time. Relax. It’ll be perfect when it happens. Try and enjoy your last few days or weeks as a girlfriend.

I was with my SO when he bought my ring back in June. Some guys wait a little while between purchasing and proposing. I know I wouldn’t worry though, it will definitely happen!

I think the best thing for you to do is stop snooping through his stuff. He is not responsible for your snooping behavior. Why should he have to be “more careful with hiding it”? Shouldn’t you be more careful to respect his personal items and privacy? Oh, and since he’s not creative, it’s probably best that you stop hoping for some sort of creative proposal. That’s not who he is, so you are really only setting yourself up for disappointment. Getting rid of your proposal fantasies (however tame they may be) may save you a world of hurt. If you do a search on here, you will find lots of bees who are disappointed with their non-hollywood moment proposals. Don’t let yourself become one of them because you expected him to change his style just for a proposal. Keep reminding yourself that whatever will be, will be. A go with the flow attitude makes the whole experience a lot more enjoyable.

@FutureMrsKap:  I think she was confused about your interest in a creative proposal because of this apparently misleading line: The poor man (Bless his soul) doesn’t have a creative bone in his body so I’m hoping he went online to find some ideas.

@FutureMrsKap:  Alright, let’s just get this out of the way first:  guys are pretty dumb when it comes to the secretive parts of proposing.  My FI works in IT as a contractor for the government and is pretty darn smart when it comes to computers – but he managed to leave our shared desktop computer up on his Facebook messages 2 months before he proposed.  I saw the message he sent to my best friend asking her if a weekend would work for her to come for it.  That’s what he left our SHARED computer open on!

If it’s bothering you so badly, TELL HIM.  I felt a million times better when I told mine about what happened.  It took me 3 days to work up the nerve to tell him, but I’m so glad I did because he set my mind at ease and changed the date.

He’s planning something.  Chances are, he’s got a weekend worked out already or plans in place.  Just be patient, but you can talk to him about it if you need to.  The ring actually ends up not being all that important in the moment – as long as you don’t know the details you will still be surprised!
