Well it certainly seems like you and your SO are on a great track moving foward and it sounds like it could happen for you in the very near future! 🙂 i think thats great and def something t be happy about! (not that i’m saying i think you aren’t!) 

what exactly is a “placeholder ring” I think i get what you mean, like a less expensive ring and then you would upgrade once your SO has the money to do so?.. i’m just curious how inexpensice a placeholder would be.. ?… But maybe he’ll just surprise you anyway! 

Dont let your friend hurt your feelings… all of us waiting bees are in the same boat you are! there’s a big difference between discusing what you both want in the future and then making it a reality! Its a great thing that you know where you both stand and that you want the same things!

I agree with killerqueen13.. Don’t let your friends bring you down. Big difference between discusing and having lol.

  Good luck atleast it’s super close!

I have a place holder ring… It wasn’t cheap though but my dream ring costs a bit more. I was happy I got the “placeholder” because I was tired of waiting. When we upgrade, I will put my placeholder aside for my son so when he finds the love of his life, he can propose to her with it. This way, I am engaged, we are starting a nice tradition in our family and I AM NO LONGER WAITNG!

@scarlet_letter:  Congrats on moving forward with the place holder ring.  If that works for you guys financially and you both are on the same page, why not!

I totally feel you on the friend thing too.  I have one close friend that hurt my feeling last week because hse said she thinks that he’s not the marrying type and he’s just telling me stuff to keep me around.  Then tells me she doesn’t get why we are planning some things out already (we want destination so we’ve been doing preliminary research).  Everyone does their relationship differently and I had to explain to her that the way she rushed in to moving in with her now DH, had a baby then got engaged was not the way i’d ever do things but that was her way so who am I to say anything if it makes them happy.  She kinda shut up after that.  maybe just remind this friend, whom I’m sure has your best interests at heart that you guys wanna do things your way and you aren’t about to spoil your BF’s moment being totally practical! hehe
