Hi everyone, I’m so excited to be on this board! I read a lot of similar stories and they were great, but I’m bursting with excitement and I need to share my own.
We’ve been living together for a few years now, and I gave him the info to get the ring I want about a year ago. He’s limited my expectations the whole time so I wouldn’t be disappointed, like telling me before our vacation that it wouldn’t be then, and letting me know he doesn’t have the money together yet.
But last night my mom was digging around for the info on the ring I want, trying to be slick but totally not at all. I realized he’s ready to go for it! I spoke to a friend of mine after and she confirmed it (which is fine, I already knew).
I know he doesn’t have the ring yet, and I’m going to a jewelry store today to pick out the cut I want (already picked the setting) so I can tell my mom. Apparently he “wants to go all out” for the proposal, whatever that means, and make sure it’s totally different from anything I’d expect. I don’t know when or where but I’m thinking probably in the next 1-2 months and I can’t wait!
I’m not at all disappointed that I know, honestly it saves me a couple months of frustration. I actually said to my mom a couple of days ago that I thought I should just buy my own ring, lol.
Just reading other people’s engagement stories on here is making me cry, I can’t even imagine how much I’ll cry when it actually happens!

Thanks guys! I have a little predicament becuase I relized I don’t want the ring I sent him a year ago for when the time came (simple band online). I think I want to pick it out with him, or at least go shopping with him and then he can pick it out. What do you think?
PS Full disclosure, I’ve been trying rings at lunchtime for the past few days and it is the most fun activity EVER!

Yes! I went ring shopping with my bf a few days ago and he finally bought it!!! Once again as usual I was indecisive and couldnt decide which one I loved but decided to go with the one my bf picked up for me which i absolutely love. He knows me so well now and which styles I like !!
Definitely go with him together and try on as many as you can!!
I’m in the same boat as you, I think it’ll happen within 1-2 months. Exciting times ahead, yay!!! CONGRATULATIONS!! 🙂
