@dreamingofbling:Keep playing dumb. If a man doesn’t think he is going to surprise you then he keeps putting it off. Also, he doesn’t want to feel like all you care about is the proposal and the wedding. Welcome to the hive! I’m waiting, but I have stumbled across things and I know it should be happening soon!

@dreamingofbling:  Hi I am a fellow Aussie (impatient) waiter too! lol Ive been here about a month now and its been a great help knowing its not just me going bonkers! Def take Miss Tattoo’s advice – keep quiet and look for distractions! (I am in a very similar situation to you – knowing about the ring and such and the house but no bub just a puppy).  There are lots of threads here that talk about distracting yourself. 

If hes got the ring then it shouldnt be too far off – maybe hes just waiting for the right moment!  From what Ive learnt on here once they get the ring it burns a hole in their pocket!

Keep daydreaming on here and look at other wedding sites.  Im surprised your 2 month old isnt keeping you on your toes (good sleeper??)!!

Good luck and welcome to the Bee!!

I would keep browsing online. . .afterall, once you’re officially engaged, you’ll probably be needing a wedding band. ๐Ÿ˜‰ 

If he knows you’ve been around the wedding forums, he won’t suspect anything.

You have no idea when the ring will arrive or what he’s planning for the proposal.  Let him bask in his glory and plan the ultimately perfect proposal for you.  You definitely don’t want to hurt his man-pride, and if he finds out you know, he might be crushed.  I would keep on doing whatever it is that you’ve been doing with respect to engagements/weddings/planning/etc.

Plus, it sounds like you guys have probably talked about marriage since you have a baby and house together.  I’m sure you’ve discussed marriage and aren’t completely surprised. 

My SO and I have discussed the idea of me helping pick out my ring when it’s time.  I’ve promised myself, though, that if I am involved, I will in no way pester SO about the proposal.  He, too, has made it clear that he wants it to be very special for me, and I want to be able to give him his moment of glory when he proposes and sees the look on my face.  I know your case is a bit different, but I say don’t change a darn thing that you’re doing so he has no clue you know. 

Don’t ask and don’t tell.  It’s not like he’s going to come out and ask you, “Did you snoop around and find that I ordered your ring and am planning to propose?”  Lol.
