So, we looked at rings in May and decided to have something custom made. After a few false starts we finally settled on a jeweler, got a quote, finalized the design and off they went. Now almost 6 weeks has passed (expected amount of time) and I’m getting really impatient.
My bf did mention he had a proposal plan in mind, and I told him if he wanted to he could propose without the ring. Well, now the 4th of July (my favorite holiday), our 2 yr anniversary and my birthday have all passed. Along with a few other nice potential proposal moments. I can only assume at this point he is waiting to have the ring in hand – which will be AT LEAST another week, possibly more if it’s not right the first time. Not to mention, I then have to wait for him to propose. I’m hopeful it will burn a whole in his pocket and he will do it soon after getting it.
Do you ladies think it is harder to wait once the ring has been ordered? Or if he has the ring in hand already? I feel so close – yet so far.

I imagine it’d be harder to wait knowing he has it. Can’t say for sure, because SO surely doesn’t have a ring for me… 🙂 Anyway – maybe he wants to do it on some idle Tuesday and not a special day? I made it pretty clear to SO that I didn’t want it to be a Holiday or anything of the sort. Some guys like doing it then, some don’t… maybe yours is one that doesn’t? It will come! Focus on the fact you’re going to spend your life with him and soon enough you will get to show off a ring that is totally yours!

Waiting is hard. I kept thinking FI would propose for a period of almost 4 months. Every time we went out I would look super good, family functions I was practically drooling for… He proposed sitting at home and it was perfect. I know its hard, but don’t stress. It will come.

I’m not sure if my BF has bought the ring yet but he has asked what I liked and size but that was months ago. It’s harder to wait knowing it’s coming so soon but seems so far away! If I knew it wouldn’t be until December or next year or something I would have an easier time not thinking about it so much but knowing it’s in the next month or two (he’s made comments about us being engaged by our anniversary in Sept) and having no idea when is hard! I also don’t want to know if he has the ring because that would make the wait even longer!

I’m sure that waiting when you know the ring is coming, or is HERE, must be SUPER HARD…I’m with Carpie, I’m not sure if he’s gotten my ring and I am on pins and needles!!
I do hope it burns a hole in his pocket, but evenmore I pray that you have a beautiful and memorable proposal…it’ll be worth the wait (hopefully we can all distract eachother until the BIG DAY!)

I think it was much easier when I didn’t think he had the ring. I found my ring by accident and knowing he has it, is making it much harder to wait. Especially when he keeps bringing up wedding ideas.
