Definitely not wrong for being annoyed.

I’ve been with my boyfriend for almost 9 years, lived together for 3 and he just left today for a 5 month long stint in Florida for work. I really hoped he would propose before he left, but that didn’t happen. 

Have you both talked about it? My boyfriend won’t give me a timeline because he doesn’t want me to figure anything out.

No, you are not wrong to be annoyed.

Has he stated what are his reasons to wait for proposing? Could it be monetary issues? Have you discussed any timeline, i.e. is he willing to marry you next year, in five years or when?

He could have monetary issues about other things than the ring, do you know if he wants to have a large wedding? Or maybe he wants to be sure that he can provide for his family, although IMHO you are already a family. Or maybe, regardless of your opinion, he wants to give you the best, i.e. an expensive ring.

I do agree with you, it doesn’t matter how expensive the ring is, it is the thought behind that counts.
