    Holidays are approaching…and so are a ridiculous number of proposals ;). Lots of guys wait until the holidays. So I recommend you wait until January 2nd. If still no proposal, then ask him what’s up.

    You don’t need a ring to be engaged, nor do you need an announcement.  He asked, you said yes, you’re engaged. Maybe he feels awkward because he considers you already engaged and you’re not seeing eye-to-eye because you’re waiting for the ring to make it “official.” Maybe he doesn’t want to make a big deal of things right before the holidays when so many couples get engaged.  Maybe he’s having second thoughts because you’ve been moping over not having a ring, or maybe he can’t afford the ring he wants to give you and he feels ashamed.  You’re going to have to ask him.

    My husband bought the ring 6 months before he proposed (I didn’t know it though, the whole thing was a surprise)…. he proposed on New Years.
