SO and I found *the ring* on our sixth ring shopping expedition. It’s in his budget and it suits my idea of what he should spend, meaning he’s not trying to put more than $5,000 on my finger. (Does it make anyone else uncomfortable to know that you’re going to be wearing that much money on your finger???) It’s also a high quality diamond, which was important to us, small enough for me to feel comfortable with it (I’m sooo afraid I would smack a larger stone on things and end up damaging it) but large enough for him to be proud of…
Now I’m just waiting. And waiting. Aaaand WAITING. And he is loving every moment of me being annoyed with him. Because now that we’ve found *the ring* EVERYTHING is a secret. Which PISSES. ME. OFF!!
Are any of your SO’s acting like that? Acting like everything has to be a secret and thinking that every question you ask is some kind of strategy to pump them for information? Mine is and it’s sooo frustrating.
I really appreciate the fact that he wants to surprise me but I don’t think he realizes that I’d prefer not to ruin my surprise. Asking him who we’ll get to see when we go visit his family next month (as in which of his siblings will also come into town for the holiday) is NOT pumping him for engagement information! I just want to know who I’ll get to see!!! But it’s a secret. For whatever freakin’ reason. So annoying.

You know what would be fun?! Drive him crazy! Act as if you don’t care and don’t say anything hehe.

Ugh, I went through something similar after we picked out my ring. I just couldn’t stand the waiting and he seemed to really enjoy it. Although he swears he didn’t. I don’t have any great advice for dealing with it, but just wanted you to know you’re SO not alone!

Right there with you. My guy is LOVING that he is keeping me guessing and waiting. It’s annoying. But, in his words, “I’ll torture you with waiting now. You can torture me with wedding planning later.”
Hahaha… um… DEAL. 🙂

Yep, he just said yesterday something about my not knowing when it will happen. I wanted to smack him, but I couldn’t.LOL He’ll get it back when the wedding comes. All the info I don’t tell him…it’s busting loose and it’s all he’ll hear.LOL Not in a bad way, a way that’s funny!

I remember this phase!! It didn’t last long, only about 2 weeks but it was SO annoying!! Rings tend to be really hot and burn right through most fabric, especially pockets, so chances are good he will propose soon if he already has it!!

We’re on the same boat, I don’t understand why everything has to be so secretive to be “romantic”… I’m also divided between being happy that he cares enough to plan something special and mad that he’s torturing me so much!
