So my SO was saying that he still has to ask my father for his permission/blessing/whatever. Would that imply that he already has a ring and would then be ready to propose ASAP? Or do some guys wait until after they talk to the father to buy a ring, meaning that I’d still have to wait a bit before we are engaged? I kind of assumed that the guy asks the dad relatively close to when he plans on proposing, but I’ve realized that I have absolutely no basis for that assumption….
So what kind of wait should I expect once he talks to my dad?

It really depends on his plans. Mine bought the ring, asked my dad 2 months later, then proposed 2 weeks after that. It’ll happen soon enough, at least he’s ready to ask so he should be planning to do it somewhat soon.

My SO told me that he isn’t going to talk to my dad until it is close because my dad will tell my mom and my mom will spill the beans. I think he wants to have the ring in hand to show my dad. But I know he won’t let me know when he talks to my dad so I won’t know it’s coming. He is super sneaky. I would say it isn’t going to be too long before you get the bling!! Good luck and I hope it is soon.
