@Bunnbunn: I just have to say how similar our situations are! My SO and I have been together 9 years as of January, been together since 16, and I am waiting, waiting, waiting. He too, has been telling me not to look at any bank statements, etc, so I can only assume he has purchased the ring. But what is he waiting for?! Today we went out for a walk with our dog, it was snowing and just beautiful, I kept thinking it was going to happen…but it didn’t! Gaaah! 

I’m doing my best not to bring it up because I do want it to be somewhat of a surprise, but I sure am getting impatient!

I think that all signs (for both os us) are pointing towards yes! But we just need to be patient…though I am so sick of telling myself that!

@Bunnbunn:  I’ll make you feel better…

Months before he actually proposed, I found a folder from a jeweler with appraisals and pictures of my mother’s pear diamond out of her ring (we had discussed using it).  It was on my radar, and I was just waaaaaiiitttttiiiinnnngggg…

I went so far as to go onto my FI’s facebook messges where I saw a convo with a friend about how it was “happening soon” and we did have a trip planned a few weeks later.  That’s when it happened, too.

I would NEVER tell him that!!!!  The waiting period makes women CRAZY!!!  I have NEVER been distrustful with him before that time and now I’m a bit ashamed of it!  I like to consider that I wasn’t in my right mind, though!!! Sealed

Hang in there it will happen. I am keeping my fingers crossed it happens when you go away on your trip. Reading this seems like you are pretty darn close to being engaged. I wish you the best and if it doesn’t happen when you want it will happen when you least expect it. Good luck and keep us posted!! Laughing
