I wondered the same thing every time my guy mentioned things being tight or money or budgeting. Turns out, it was totally unrelated to any expensive jewelry purchases and was purely a coincidence that he started feeling more comfortable discussing his money around the same time we we were starting to look for a ring. Really. They were totally unrelated. Now, after he bought the ring he did complain a little about the cost, but so would I. 🙂 Jewelry is expensive. But the money had been saved for years before he met me.

Is there a chance he’s just feeling more comfortable talking about personal things like finances now that you’ve been together a little longer?

I mentioned to my SO that maybe he shouldnt be thinking about buying a new truck this past summer. And he said “What? Because i should be saving to buy you a ring? Bought and paid for!” 

Well i know he hadn’t bought it yet but still i guess he had managed to save the money he thought he would be spending.  We did have some unexpected cost then. But he is a saver soooo maye i shouldn’t comment lol.  Honesty i wouldnt be surpised if he had $10,000 saved. All he buys is beer and some food and he makes twice as much as me. 

That is suppose to be one of the signs he is thinking of making a large purchase.  But it is different for every guy in my opinion. Like i said…my SO is always saving money.

I agree with claireos.  It is really hard to tell if the guy is saving for himself or for the both of you.  Did he give you any other hints about saving for a future?  My bf has been talking about houses and real estate a lot.  And, there was an occasional talk of how expensive his coworkers spent on their wives rings.  So, I have a little hint that the penny pinching is for those purchases.  (Plus, my little sister told me that he asked her help with the ring shopping.)
