I’m right there with you. I would go completely crazy and be pissed if my S/O paraded my ring in front of me. My ring is suppose to be coming in late April, but I’m not even sure if my S/O will propse then. Do you know why your S/O is teasing you like this? Have you guys discussed why the plan until vacation? I’m just curious to his reasoning for this. I totally understand about how time is standing still. I’ve known since March 9 and I feel like April 24th is a lifetime away. Isn’t it amazing how that works? lol

I’d let him know (remind him) how much that ring means and how it isn’t cool to dangle it in front of you like a carrot to a donkey.

I know what you mean. He asked me to help pick it out with him since I was the one to be wearing it the rest of my life. Which I was very happy he did. Then after it came in, we picked it up together and he left it sitting on top of the dresser for over a month. Ughhh..I thought I was dying. Then one day it was gone and we were going to the beach but nothing. When I came home I found he had just put it in his drawer. Another ugh. Of course I kept looking at it when he wasn’t home. Then one day I found printed out directions folded up in the ring box with it. I looked it up and it was to a beautiful waterfall location. So I got excited thinking he was going to take me there, I kept making my weekends free, to no avail. It happened when I least expected it and at home. It wasn’t over the top romantic but it was still perfect for us. Hang in there. Don’t expect it and it will happen.

not to sound mean… but wtf? he’s using the ring as a bargaining tool?! eff that.

My advice: act the least bit interested in the ring. and just keep on doing your thing.

So strange that he has it – yet taunts you with and hasn’t popped the question yet! My FI had it for 2wks before doing it – and everyone he tells is SHOCKED he could even wait that long. Usually it’s like they get it the day before!

1stLadyJackie:  I know a decent number of guys who had the ring and waited- because they wanted to propose on a specific day or on a trip etc, but they didn’t show the bling off all the time. They kept it quiet

That’s cruel…I’m sorry he’s teasing you, it’s not funny at all 🙁 Who wants to wear the ring during a drive just to give it back? When my FI brought my ring home he asked me if I wanted to see it. I said no. He wanted to make sure it fit so I looked the other way, stuck my hand out and he slipped it on–it fit perfectly–(insert goosebumps here lol) and he asked a couple more times if I wanted to see it and I finally caved (what girl wouldn’t!?) but after that he put it away and never taunted me with it at all. I can’t even imagine. Hugs!

Katie918:  Even though you’ve seen the ring – when he proposes – you’ll still be shocked! 🙂 Congrats to the both of you!!! And I’m glad he understands your feelings!

I don’t know what I would have done if I knew my hubs had the ring. He had it for 4 months. Technically he had it for 8 but it was on layaway for half of that. I definitely would have gone crazy!
