I didnt pick my ring out, he picked it out himself. I didnt know about the proposal but suspected because he was acting a bit shady. Since you are LD, it is easier for him to keep things from you so you never know. 

My guess is that you are planning on moving to where he lives so he could very well be ready to propose. πŸ™‚ Good luck!

@allyouneedislove:  Well you never know but it seems to me that he knows what you want and he is talking to his relatives about it is a good sign. Maybe he did have a long heart to heart talk on the phone since he is LD.  It may not happen this trip but if he is talking about it, it means it will happen soon. πŸ™‚

Some couples choose to design/pick a ring together, and some couples leave it up to the man to pick out the ring. If he is planning something, it’s much easier to keep it from you and pick out a ring since you are LD, as the PP said. That may be why you feel like you haven’t heard anything.

I’ll keep my fingers crossed for you!

I think Im like the only Bee who wants to leave it up to my SO to find my ring. That made me think before when I saw all the posts about ring window shopping too, I feel ya. But he has bought me jewelry before, and knows my distaste for yellow gold, knows my ring size( he bought me an opal silver  ring last Christmas) so I trust him to find the right one. Youre not alone to “wonder” but you have no reason to worry! Cool

I’ve asked my bf to go ring shopping together but he told me he’d rather do it alone. He’s pretty traditional so I’m not surprised although I wish he’d get a move on. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with couples ring shopping together and I think more and more people are deciding to do it this way. I mean she’s got to wear the ring her entire life so makes sense. My bf view is if you love me you will love whatever i choose for you and I’m sure I will πŸ™‚ I have to say though that once we were at  the mall and i asked my boyfriend to come into a jewellery store with me for a quick look and he did. We were only in there a few mins wanted to make it seems like it was a very “casual look” πŸ˜‰ but in those few mins I pointed out a few rings that i loved so he gets the idea of what i like

I am in your exact same boat minus the long distance. Have you dropped random hints of what you like? Has he seen your rings on pinterest? I think we give guys little credit, but they are scanning for ideas all the time. I told my SO that I want a surprise that I am basically a detective and WILL find out so I think that is why he doesn’t ask or we don’t go ring shopping etc. All hed have to do is take in one of your rings to compare sizes with. If I were you I would drop hints. ‘OMG that is such a gorgeous ring that girl has on, that is exactly something I would love’ or ‘my ring is a size 7, but it is too big on my I should maybe consider getting a 6.5 next time’ or ‘I think it is so adorable when families are involved in engagements’. I think dropping subtle hints will go so far especially with a guy who is a good listener. And your guy is probably just traditional and doesn’t want to spoil the surprise!
