Perhaps you should at least alert him to the style of ring you like so that you minimize the possibility of being diappointed.

As for the proposal part, most men know that it is a big deal for us, and often make us wait while they figure out how to make it a wonderful experience for us. I knew mine was coming, and he put so much thought into making it great, I love him more for it and I cried anyway.

I feel you! SO and I will be getting engaged sometime this fall..and that’s all I know. The waiting game is driving me crazy!

In terms of the ring, SO really wanted to pick it out by himself so that it would be a total surprise. He (not surprisingly) doesn’t know much about rings or diamonds, so he asked me to show him (men are visual creatures) what I liked. I emailed him about 5-10 pictures off of Pinterest and other sites that I LOVED. I also sent him a couple of pictures to show him things I really, really didn’t like. He went ring shopping this past weekend, and although I have no idea what my ring will end up looking like, I’m confident that he took what I showed him to heart. He’s also so excited about the ring he picked out, so just seeing his reaction to buying it makes me even more certain that I’ll love it no matter what.

On the proposal end, I also want it to be a surprise and so does he. I know he has a plan, but I have no idea what it is. Like you, my only request was that it’s not done in public. And he has to ask/tell my dad beforehand. I’m sure that whatever he decides to do will be super sweet, so I’m not worried.

I think that just because you know it’s coming in the next few months does not guarantee you’ll know exactly when it’s going to happen. Don’t push for details (I know how hard that is) and just try to enjoy the next few months! I bet you will be surprised AND you’ll love your ring!
