Getting engaged after less than a year of dating is very quick – I really wouldn’t worry.  Much more than a year at your age and yes, I think you would be right to raise questions, but for now, it’s still early days.

At your ages I would slow your roll, it hasn’t even been a year! And you moved in after a month of dating so I would stop rushing things and really get to know each other.  

Slow down and just enjoy the relationship. What’s wrong with getting engaged next year?

I was with my husband 6 years before we got engaged. It sounds like he is totally on board since he has the ring and had plans to propose that got canceled. I wouldn’t worry at all. It’s coming! Don’t forget to enjoy life together right now while you are waiting for the next step. ☺️

@pumpkin56:  He already has the ring but it seems like COVID pushed the timeline back. I wouldn’t worry. Your proposal is near #patience

@pumpkin56: Like the other previous posters have said, It clearly seems like he’s going to propose! He wouldnt have bought the ring otherwise. I think he just wants to make the proposal “perfect” and maybe he doesnt think he can because everythings closed at the moment.

@pumpkin56:  I get it! My engagement was also delayed. Even though I know everything is ok and on track, I was still feeling super anxious about having to wait. During our conversations he spilled the beans and let me know when and where he planned to propose, but the trip wasn’t possible anymore because of COVID. Well, now the trip is back on because the place is back open. We leave in 2 days. I believe my SO is now planning something different since I know the original plan and he really wanted it to be a “surprise”. Now I am wishing I didnt know the original plan, because had I not known I think he would be proposing this weekend. However, I’m glad I still talked to him about my anxious feelings. It’s always better to communicate but don’t push too hard for too many details like I did.. I wouldn’t worry too much because he’s clearly going to propose if he has the ring. Just give it some time. Try to concentrate on you and what makes you happy. Let him figure out how to woo you.

He shouldn’t propose till August anyway. DH and I decided you need to know each other for all 4 seasons first. So he proposed on our one year dating anniversary! Perfect timing for us

Agree with PP: You’ve been together less than a year, he has a ring… it seems like things are ahead of schedule.
