It’s a toughy our guys know how to keep us on our toes….I knew my Fi had bought the ring..I ws with him.  But he then made it a point to bring the ring back saying it wasn’t the right time….I was infuriated and scared and sad all at the same time.  But, one day on his day of work he went and picked a completely different ring and proposed that day.  It was a complete and udder surprise and I never saw it coming.  Another plus is what he picked out was just absolutely perfect and beat out the ring we had picked together.

Enjoy the ride! My boyfriend and I have been dating for 10 months and while we’ve talked extensively about actually getting married, I know he won’t propose for at least a few more months. I am totally, totally okay with that since we’ve been dating for less than a year and since I know this is for real, there’s no real rush to get married (except for the fact we’re moving to a new city next August!).

Good luck!  But try not to get your hopes too high–I feel like so many things can sound wedding related when you’ve been thinking about it.  I was trying to guess my bday present this year and I threw out the words “tuxedo kitten” (because I really want one) and he said “tuxedo is close.” So started thinking maybe it was a ring because there might be some tuxedos at the wedding.  Turns out it was a cool jacket–not a tux or a ring for that matter. lol.  I do love the jacket btw. 

Anyway, I don’t know what she could be describing.  A yellow purse?  (I’m reaching, I know)  Good luck!!  I hope she is trying to throw you off…

He could be saying that stuff to throw you off!! I mean why would he go shopping with his mom if it was nothing that important and why now when Christmas is so far away!

Sounds like he might just be trying to throw you off, esp if he knows you might be trying to get a few hints!!  Hope its the present you are hoping for!! πŸ™‚

I second a vote for a yellow purse. Or, he’s just messing with you πŸ™‚ I know it is so hard to wait, but at least you know its coming! And until you get the ring (and after!!) we’re here to commiserate!

we are also at 10 months of dating and he wants to wait until eh is moved in to get the ring , which he is moving in end of this month and we already talked about getting the ring for end of november , waiting is soooo frustrating but he has allowed me to go ahead and start planning so that helps me a lot plus the awesome ladies on wedding bee of course .good luck and maybe he is trying to throw you off so it would be a suprise..

Just be patient.  I agree with LovestheBear… my FI made a comment back around our 2 year mark that made me think he was going to propose on my 30th birthday.  He didn’t and I was really upset.  So enjoy the ride like another poster said.  And hopefully you won’t wait 3 years and 2 months to get a ring like I did.

Arrggg I so know these arbitrary “hints” they think it’s so funny and cute… lol just shrug your shoulders and tell him you’re getting him something sexy and skimpy and it will be a gift for both of you on christmas. and if he doesn’t propose get him a g string with a santa hat!! if he does well, get the same for you πŸ˜€

I say just let whatever happens, happens. I’m sorry he doesn’t want anymore kids. My SO has a 10yr old son, but still wants to have them with me, preferably yesterday.LOL. We’ve also been together officially about 10 months.

Good luck with everything.
