now that he knows what ring you like all you can do is keep quiet because if he has a plan you could ruin it, it sounds like he was just a little lost on the ring search now I bet he is planning for it to be a perfect suprise and you would hate yourself if you ruin it for him. my situation isnt like yours we havent picked a ring yet and he isnt going to be getting it before October for financial reasons but waiting is still not easy

your welcome, they dont need to know the exact ring you want but I know having ideas of what their gfs like makes their life a little easier when it comes to ring shopping, the important part for my bf is that it is a ring I love since I will be wearing it for the rest of my life so I am picking a few settings I like and giving him options for diamond shapes and he will go from there

the last time my boyfriend and I got into a fight over getting a ring was because he told me I was the reason he hadnt got a ring because I kept changing my mind about what I wanted and he wasoverwhelmed with all the choices so since then I am looking on my own for awhile and when it gets closer to October I will give him my final choices so there is no more fights about it. In his mind it is about showing that he can provide for me so I get how its stressful for them to get everything just right

Believe me, I know how frustrating it can be! I dated my Fiance 8 years on the dot before he proposed. When he finally did though, it was all worth it. I’m sure it will be here in no time! I wish I knew weddingbee existed before I was engaged… I’m sure I would have been on the waiting boards! Welcome 🙂

@OmigoshesGrrrl: I dont want to know exactly what I am getting but he knows nothing about rings he has only gotten me a few necklaces and a pair of diamond stud earings which  picking them out didnt matter as much because he doesnt expect me to wear them everyday for the rest of my life. he just wants to know the style of bands I like which involved me trying some on in a store to know what is comfortable because I never wear rings I told him I like round, princess,and cushion cut so he is picking that all on his own. when we had a fight the last time he said its important because he wants our future kids to look at it when we are gone and know thats how much their dad loved their mom so the ring has to be just right. he was nervous when we first talked about getting engaged because he was so lost on the ring thing and the last thing I want is him having a panic attack because he is so lost on the ring search if that makes sense

I thought it was sweet too so I couldnt aruge with him after that, he has his moments where he is so sweet and then there are other times where he can just be a cranky pain in the butt lol I felt bad for not realizing they have waiting stress too, things have been alot better since it all came out in the last waiting fight
