*waves*! Hi everyone! I’ve been poking around here for a while; you ladies are so helpful! Little bit of background…
My Boyfriend or Best Friend and I have been together for 2 1/2 years. We bought a house together last summer, and we’re both around 27 years old. Now we’re both very open about marriage talk. A couple weekends ago the following conversation took place:
Him: “You know what we could do tomorrow? I could take you ring shopping.”
Me: “Aw, you don’t want to do that…”
Him: “I do. I mean, we could wait, but it will just take me just much longer for me to ask you…”
So needness to say, we went 🙂 Tried on a lot of beautiful rings, but I’ve been trying very hard not to bring it up again since.
Now, this happened with my friend and her Boyfriend or Best Friend. They went shopping, tried on a bunch, got super excited… and two years later, still no ring.
So Bees, should I be excited or try not to get my hopes up? Has this happened to anyone else?

I wish I could say, “Yes! This is it!”, but unfortunately there isn’t any way of knowing. I certainly hope this means you guys will be engaged soon though!

i’ve heard it both ways on this site… 1. you go ring shopping and engagement quickly follows, or 2. you go ring shopping and then, nothing.
i think it is ia good sign he didn’t want to wait to go shopping, maybe now he won’t want to wait to propose!
best of luck

@BP2Be: I’d be excited, but I wouldn’t get my hopes up cause I don’t like to be dissapointed. Enjoy the moment.

You know him best… is he a logical planner or a bit more creative and unpredictable? It sounds like your life circumstances are pretty perfect for getting engaged, and him bringing up ring shopping is a very good sign! Plus you guys buying a house together shows he’s not afraid to commit.
Good luck! I hope its soon.
