Holy run on sentence, Batman.

I don’t think it’s really odd or out of the norm that he has the ring already. I think it can be frustrating and annoying for us girls to have that knowledge. This is the reason I told my SO I didn’t want to know when he actually makes the purchase and I’m not going to look for it if he has it for any length of time before proposing. Impatience sometimes gets the best of us though! So I think you should relax and know that if he has the ring, it means he WILL ask at some point. I know it’s easier said than done, but just know you aren’t alone!

Run on sentence, indeed! 🙂

I don’t think it’s weird, per say – just ask him to clarify what he means. Is he saying his job is in jeopardy and he wants to ride out the storm? Is he soon up for a promotion and wants to wait and see if he gets it? Does he actually hate is job and wants to get a new one? Communication is key! Regardless of the proposal, as his partner, talk to him about what’s happening at work and hear him out. He may just need your support to get through a tough time before he is ready to pop the question. Don’t just assume what he means or assume it’s odd.

Frustrating that he has the ring and wont propose!! It must be driving you a little crazy!

Boys have some wonderful list of excuses they put in their heads ahead of proposing and I think sometimes you gotta let them get it out of the system before they propose. I would just keep quiet, take up a new hobby yourself and keep busy!
