    @jackndiane:

    I’m the one who brought up ring shopping this year, but my SO is the one who brought up marriage and engagement talk before me.  We’d gone to about 4 weddings, and every time, he’d make comments to me about what *our* wedding could be like.  He’s always the one who brought it up first.  Once I felt secure enough (he is THE ONE feeling), I told him I had seen this *amazing* ring I wanted to show him.  That’s how the looking at rings started.  We looked at many amazing rings and we both had a great time πŸ™‚  I know he ordered a ring….now I wait for the proposal (and it’s not easy!!)

    He suggested it.  My reaction was basically mouth –> floor.

    It was random in our case.  We were at the midnight  madness sale and saw a big sign that says 60% off at this jewlery store.  We browsed around and he asked me what kind of rings I like and I pointed it out and that was it.  We joked around and I didn’t think too much about it. πŸ™‚

    I asked him to go look at a ring I saw and liked.  He didn’t care, and I tried it on at the store for him, then got the saleslady to write down the SKU number and my ring size.  He kept that card in his wallet till he bought the ring!  Apparently, he laid the card on the counter and said, “I want that.” πŸ™‚

    I just bought up diamond shopping to my SO for sometime this summer.  He said we could go look I already have the diamond picked out.  Whether or not he buys it is up to him.  I plan on  leaving the room once I’m done looking at it and let him talk to th jeweler alone.

    you know, i don’t even remember because the first time we ever looked at rings, it wasn’t JUST to ring shop, i think we were in a mall and we just kind of made our way into the jewelry store. i think it was more of him grabbing my hand and going in. i know i have suggested looking a few times, but he has as well.

    I honestly don’t remember who brought it up. Doing it was a spur-of-the-moment thing, though. We took our daughter to a fish store/aquarium, and a jewellery store was by the same plaza.. he pulled up, and was like, “Why not?”

    When we first started talking about getting engaged, he wasn’t sure of what I wanted. He didn’t know much about the styles or really the prices either. So, he asked if I would go with him to look and give him ideas.

    He suggested it both times. He said he wanted to see what I liked and find out my opinion since he knows I’m very picky. But he has made a comment since that he kind of regrets it and wishes that he hadn’t. We had such a great time both times but I think he realized that’s when the proposal, engagement, and marriage REALLY got on the brain for me. So I begin to get antsy. And each passing holiday, etc. I would be so hurt.

    After dating for a year and a half he suggested that I start looking, which was all the encouragement I needed to get myself very quickly to the jewelry store πŸ™‚
