Men can be stupid.

Apologize, get on with it. I have a huge ego and apologizing for me is the hardest thing. Just swallow your pride, explain how you are just at the end of your rope.

Go online, pick out rings you like and email them to him. Go to the store alone or with a friend and try on rings and find your size. Do the legwork for him, then let him choose. If he still makes excuses, I think he’s more than just “too busy”.

I don’t understand why you threw such a tantrum.  You’re getting married soon, you just had an engagement party, he has the money for the ring, and he said that he will ask you to marry him.  To me, it makes sense that he’s been really busy and hasn’t had a chance to get your ring yet with all the effort and time that goes in to planning a wedding.  Is it a little strange to do things backwards like this?  Yes.  But it’s obviously going to happen.  Relax.

Yikes! That tantrum was probably not the best way to go about things…

Why exactly are you upset? No ring? No get down on one knee proposal?

To me it sounds like he probably thinks those things arent all that important since you’ve already had an engagement party and started planning. If it is to you, I agree with pharmy – apologise, talk to him about the importance of it to you and go from there. And then do the legwork for him 🙂

Good luck x
