It’s possible that he is trying to lower your expectations, so that he can surprise you. 🙂

What’s his/your idea of “big” b/c that makes a BIG difference.

Most guys I know try to be all sneaky sneaky and get us “down” so they can uplift us. No worries! He wants you to be extra surprised, that’s all

I actually did not want a “big” production out of the engagement. I liked having it be a personal moment between me and FI. We ended up having a good story but for us, it was more just getting engaged than getting a show.

Sorry it hasn’t happened yet, but it sounds like you’re making some good decisions as a couple.  Good luck!

yay on working together as a team and on agreeing to shop for the ring together.

I think ring shopping can be really upsetting for some men. Unlike what the diamond industry would have us believe, not everyone wants to spend the eqivalent of three months salary (or even one month’s worth) on an engagement ring. For example, my husband is working on selling his house, so he still has a morgage to pay on plus the cost of renovation supplies. So for him to buy an expensive ring would have been ridiculous! He bought me an 1/2 carat diamond and that was perfectly ok by me!

The fact that you are both budget conscious and willing to shop together is a very good thing!

@bluespurrs: i completely agree! if m were to spend 3 months salary on his ring i’d be afraid to wear it to be honest with you. i’d rather him pay my suv off or some of my stu loans. i am much more comfortable with a less expensive ring with a ton of meaning behind it.
