@sugar_biscuit:  Well, if you 100% know you want the ring you’ve already found, don’t mention it.  That way he knows you still really want that one and at the same time, you don’t have to feel the pressure of wondering if you should mention it or not!!  Good luck!!

@sugar_biscuit:  Well, I think you can rest easy knowing you were pretty vocal about which ring you want.  I say still talk about your future and excitement about it, still be as chatty as you normally would be.  Just don’t mention the ring, assuming he knows what you want and has the info on it.  If he said he’s working on it, take that for what he said and just be happy and chat away!!

@sugar_biscuit:  Leave it be.  He has all the info on the ring you love.  I’m also very Type A.  So I know if I *love* something, there’s no doubt my SO knows.  I’m very vocal about everything.  It sounds like you might be similar.  In that case, there’s no way he could be in the dark about your feelings for that ring!  He’ll either buy it, or one he likes better.  If he brings up shopping, then do what you’d like (check it out to see if there’s one you love more, or tell him no, you’ve found your love, you don’t want to look at others!) 

The proposal is imminent.  Enjoy.  It could be any moment.  🙂

Great advice from the other Bees…

I’d say let it ride… and let him take the lead.

Maybe he’ll get you the other Ring as a surprise… and Propose on the Vacation.

Or maybe he’ll be sticking with the Original Plan, and go shopping together.

Either way, go with the flow.

BUT do be honest with him… if you guys go Ring Shopping, and you don’t see anything you love as much, he needs to know that.

Besides, I also find that when you shop together, there is a new dynamic that comes into play…

When I shopped alone, I thought I wanted a particular style

When I went shopping with Mr TTR, he had his thoughts on the matter, and input in regards to Budget etc.

In the end we didn’t end up with the very first ring I fell in love with…

We got something entirely different, that I must admit I LOVE TONS MORE

Lol, because it was a decision we made together, we now often call it OUR ERING… as it truly represents BOTH of us

And I couldn’t be happier !!

@sugar_biscuit:  I would bring it up – this isn’t the 1950s and you’re supposed to be a team, not waiting for your man to take the lead in buying you something that YOU’LL have to wear forever 😉
