1. Are you expecting a proposal soon, by when? I would say definitely not in 2015…probably not in 2016 and more than likely 2017.

2. How long have you been waiting? We’ve been together almost 5 years but only been “waiting” a few months.

3. Has engagement season been difficult for you? I don’t feel like there is much difference for me in “engagement season” vs. any other time of year. Both our families are REALLY good at just letting our relationship be what we want it to be so there is no nagging questions from them. It’s more random people and friends that we get it from and that’s any time of year.

4. What are you getting your partner for Christmas? So far I got him some blu bud headphones (cordless headphones that blu tooth to your music device) that he’s been wanting. I also want to get him a pair of “big and tall” pj pants in like a size XS if possible hahaha. He’s tall but thin so he doesn’t fit the “big” part…but all of his pj pants are high waters!

5. What do you want for X-mas? (Other than a ring LOL). I don’t really have anything I WANT for Christmas. He buys me a jar of almond rocha every Christmas (my favorite candy) so I know that’s coming haha. But…I will probably get some sort of pretty jewelry. I always like the jewelry he gets me so it will be a good present if that’s what I get. 🙂 I’m happy with anything!

6. Post a pic of the ring you want, and its stats if you know them! I like classic round solitaires that are around 1 carat. Not suuuper picky about the color specs as long as it’s a great cut..not too color sensitive so as long as it’s looks white I’m happy. I used to be dead set on the idea of a 4 prong ring…recently I’ve decided I like 6 prong a lot more. Really though…I think I’d be very happy with either as long as the prongs are small. I don’t like them being super noticeable.

About 2 1/2 years

3. Has engagement season been difficult for you?

Hmm, not really, especially becuase I know it’s coming soon (im like 85% sure it’ll happen by Xmas.) I also deactivated my facebook so I no longer have to see engagement announcements on my timeline HAH!

He’s been wanting a Bluetooth connected speaker. Maybe the Bose mini or a mini jambo.

So sorry this pic is huuuge, but I’m uploading from my iPad and can’t make it smaller 

 

This is the Verragio 117cu from the Parisian collection (that’s not the wedding band I want btw). It’ll have rose gold shoulders and a 1.25ct round forever brilliant moissanite.

1. Are you expecting a proposal soon, by when?

Not really soon, I hope before the end of 2015, either on my birthday or our anniversary. We’ve just started dating, but we ain’t spring chickens anymore, sooo…I won’t be able to patiently wait for too long, I’m afraid lol

 

2. How long have you been waiting?

Just a couple weeks.I knew this was it by our third date,and we started talking marriage, kids and future by then also,but I think it really got to me about 3 weeks ago.

 

3. Has engagement season been difficult for you?

When I got married the first time, I was just 21 and he didn’t ask me to marry him,I just told him I wanted to get married and he said ok.So I never had the whole waiting and engagement experience,also because at 21 we were the first ones to get married. I never experienced waiting during engagement season, so I’m a bit excited about it! I think it will be fun.I really want to experience it all this time, waiting frustration included lol

 

4. What are you getting your partner for Christmas?

I’m as broke as I could be, so probably handmade things.I’m thinking a pack of letters like those “open when” ones, handmade art and food.I love to cook, and he loves it when I cook for him because he says no one ever cooked for him before, other than his mother. 

5. What do you want for X-mas? (Other than a ring LOL).

Tattoos,makeup, clothes and shoes…basically I would love to go shopping crazy.

 

6. Post a pic of the ring you want, and its stats if you know them!

We went to tiffany and I fell in love with the soleste with the yellow diamond, but I’m not sure. ..I have a passion for gems, and I don’t want for him to spend all those money on a ring.I would probably love almost anything.I would love to get a moissy or a cultured gemstone, but he doesn’t seem to be too keen on that

1. Are you expecting a proposal soon, by when? Not anytime soon – SO just started looking into rings. I’ve shown him what I like, and he likes it too… but we just bought a house and adopted a dog, so I’m sure he’ll wait until he has more saved up.

2. How long have you been waiting? Just started “waiting” when I saw that he has searched out ring stuff online! 🙂

3. Has engagement season been difficult for you? Not yet, but then my facebook feed hasn’t exploded with new engagements yet. My SO’s best friend gets married after Christmas, so I’m sure I’ll feel extra sappy around then.

4. What are you getting your partner for Christmas? I have no sweet clue. (Yes I’m aware that it’s December 3rd). Something he won’t buy for himself.

5. What do you want for X-mas? (Other than a ring LOL). Nicer dishes and cutlery, a vaccuum, a nice shower curtain, and a throw for the bed. Can you tell we just moved in?? 

6. Post a pic of the ring you want, and its stats if you know them! I’m not sure how to link, but here is a link to the ring I’ve fallen in love with. (Although to me it is quite pricey. A smaller diamond with similiar stats would be fine!)

1. Are you expecting a proposal soon, by when?

I hope so. He likes to trick me though.  He’s accidentially left hints on nights that he’s had a few drinks lol.

2. How long have you been waiting? 2 years now but really this last year I’ve been a little more anxious.

3. Has engagement season been difficult for you? It’s starting to be. Everytime I hear about an engagement now I get very excited for them but deep down I’m secretly jealous lol. 

4. What are getting your partner for Christmas? He leaves me broke his birthday is next week and then Christmas is around the corner. He loves ANYTHING hunting related. Probably something with that.

5. What do you want for Xmas? (other than a ring LOL). A new pair of cowgirl boots.

6. Post a pic of the ring you want, and its stats if you know them!

I don’t know much about it other than I LOVE IT!!

  • Wedding: October 2015

1. Are you expecting a proposal soon, by when?  Hopefully by Christmas or shortly after!!! We picked out a diamond last monday and he bought it and the ring that day!! It’ll take about 3 weeks to make but they said it should probably be done before Christmas

2. How long have you been waiting?

About a year, we’ve been together for 3.  We picked out a ring style a while ago and he was trying to pick out a diamond on his own but decided he really wanted my opinion.

3. Has engagement season been difficult for you?  No, not really.  Summer was worse because I figured he would have done it then

4. What are you getting your partner for Christmas?  A few little things and also a trip

5. What do you want for X-mas? (Other than a ring LOL).  He already gave me my present, a new snowmobile, so I could use it as much as possible this winter

6. Post a pic of the ring you want, and its stats if you know them!

We ordered a 1.52 ct diamond, which looks like a nice size on my finger (size 4.75) and a tacori setting 2578.  I can’t wait!  I think another bee has the same or similar ring

1. Are you expecting a proposal soon, by when?<br /><br />Not yet. My best guess is that it’ll happen closer to the end of 2015 at the very earliest, with 2016 being more likely.

2. How long have you been waiting?<br /><br />While I am not actively waiting on a proposal, I have been hoping for one since last year. We have been together for a bit over 2.5 years, but we are both quite young, which makes things go somewhat slower for us than others, at least on paper.

3. Has engagement season been difficult for you?<br /><br />Not yet, but I haven’t seen any proposals for a while. The ring commercials are annoying, but it bothers me more when I see women around my age (I am 20) get engaged and married, especially if she hasn’t been with her SO for as long as DBF and I have been a couple. Then again, I am sure their circumstances are much different than mine and DBF’s (as far as I know, most of those engagements and marriages involve babies or military committments).

4. What are you getting your partner for Christmas?<br /><br />A Game of Thrones jacket from ther official HBO store. I am also making him a model of a boat. 😀

5. What do you want for X-mas? (Other than a ring LOL).<br /><br />I told DBF that I want whatever jewelry he wants to give me and can give me. I say “can” because we are both students, and he only works from May to October, so money is tight for him.

6. Post a pic of the ring you want, and its stats if you know them!<br /><br />Do I have to pick only one? XD

1. Are you expecting a proposal soon, by when? I think so! I’m hoping within a month or two… 

2. How long have you been waiting? about a year, but it’s taken on a surprising intensity since about August

3. Has engagement season been difficult for you? Sort of. It feels as if everyone is getting engaged… 

4. What are you getting your partner for Christmas? I have a few suprises planned.

5. What do you want for X-mas? (Other than a ring LOL). Honestly, we aren’t big on gift giving during the holidays. We give each other little things all year round 🙂

6. Post a pic of the ring you want, and its stats if you know them! I don’t even care. We are so broke – between the two of us we owe, like, half a million dollars in student loans. So $$ for a ring is both a drop in the bucket as well as money that could definitely be spent more wisely elsewhere. Not a situation I would recommend.
