@katherin788:  aww, sorry girl! If it makes you feel any better, I’m in the same boat but probably a tad bit worse. My SO told me to expect a Christmas proposal, we picked out a ring, and then, last weekend at the lake, he told me that he wants to move the date back. His reasoning…he felt like he didn’t know my family well enough 🙁 I was so excited to get engaged but now I’m not sure when he’ll ask…he didn’t even leave me with a new timeline but I’m sure it’s not soon. Also, your guy could be trying to throw you off! Guys are sneaky like that sometimes. Keep your chin up, be happy for the holidays and hopefully you get it!

@katherin788:  He could still be throwing you off, so I wouldn’t be too quick to throw a holiday engagement out the window. Or perhpas it will be a Valentine’s Day one? At least you know he is serious and making a huge effort to make it special and wonderful for you.

@katherin788:  my SO said “sweetie, I have something to say…I planned on proposing on Christmas Day but I’m just not ready to do so until I get to know your family a little more…” And literally said nothing else about a time line. So I to thought I’d be engaged in 2014 🙁 

Seriously, for you, I think you’re overthinking it. At least your guy has the ring already & he’s probably looking at other ones just to make sure he has gotten you the best possible one. I doubt he’s going to send the other one back. He’s really pulling your leg! AND, I’ve always heard that once a guy gets his hands on a ring, it damn near kills him to hold on to it! i bet he just wants to surprise the heck out of you & if not Thanksgiving or Christmas, there is always New Years Eve! :O

@katherin788:  That a long time! I hope it happens for you soon.

And just for the record–it doesn’t have to be a specific holiday. DH proposed to me on a Friday in September that holds no special meaning, was not near an anniversary or birthday, anything.

He also gave me a surprise weekend this last weekend that he had planned for 6 months. Sometimes there doesn’t have to be a big holiday or something like that in order to warrant a proposal or romantic getaway. I love those the best.

@katherin788:  I’m thinking a few things here!

1)  Maybe he said 4 months to throw you off.  Maybe you ARE still getting a holiday engagement!  He said ‘sometime in the next four months’; not ‘after 4 months more of waiting’.  I’m wondering if he said this JUST in case he does exchange the ring and it takes longer than he thought

2)  Congrats bee YOU ARE IN THE HOMESTRETCH!!  Hang in there as your wait is almsot over!  This is exciting!!

@katherin788:  In the next 4 months doesn’t preclude a holiday engagement dearie. I think you’re looking at it all wrong. My SO FI (omg!) told me that it would be “by the end of the year” and it happend soon after.

My fiance told me in the fall before our engagement that it wouldn’t be until the following spring or summer, and I know he put money on the ring (picked it out with him).  He kept saying he didn’t have it as the custom order was taking a long time.  That was all a lie though and he proposed on New Years- WAY before our time line.  He just wanted it to be a surprise

4 months is Valentine’s Day! So you might still make a holiday!
