Atleast he is looking thats always a good sign!! He might be trying to throw you off the trail. It sounds like it is coming maybe it won’t happen this year but 2010 is coming up!! I shouldn’t be putting ideas in your head I know how that can make it worse, but maybe he is planning to do it in the beginning of 2010.

I too think I may be hopeful too soon. He told me he bought a ring but he also said he wanted to be engaged before we went to my parents for Thanksgiving (we are leaving tomorrow after work).

I think the best thing to do is relax and not expect it. Obviously you’re going to think about it. I am assuming that (for me) it might not happen until after the new year, expecting it to happen only makes it worse for me atleast. He’ll do it when he is ready and found the perfect ring.

Hang in there. My FI and I started looking and talking about rings about a year before he proposed.  Just enjoy the daydreaming about all the possiblities of rings, dresses, proposal etc.  That’s what I did and it helped keep me happy in the meantime.

It won’t happen this year, but this year ends in 36 days!  So maybe it will be a New Years present!

Honestly, right now I’m going to suggest to you to just sit tight! We’re all around and trust us, some of us want to get off the list more than you can imagine… some of us are NOT subtle about it (crebre, I’m looking at you girl!) and that’s what works for them. If he says he’s not going to buy the ring this year, you have to take him at his word and trust that he’ll do it when he’s ready. Patience, young grasshopper…
