Im trying not to get my hopes up….but too late. Ive been with my boyfriend for a little over a year. We have talked about marriage in its entirety and know that eventually we will be husband and wife. He says that the only reason we are not engaged yet is because he wants to save up for a nice ring. We’ve had a number of financial setbacks arise over the last few months amd he says his savings are now drained.
1) He asked me last month to remind him what my ring size was because he forgot
2) He keeps saying things like, “Are you sure you love me and wamt to marry me?”
3) He told me that he talked to some of his best guy friends about looking for a ring because im the one
4) He asked me to go on vacation with him at the end of this month to visit his family
5) He then called me out of the blue one day to say he wanted to drive to the beach a few days before meeting up with his family.
Do you think it will happen on vacation?? He seems very serious about not having the money (he wants to pay for the ring in full). I got a glimpse at his bank account and savings….there is definitely not enough for a ring. But is it still possible?? I feel like all the signs are there. Opinions please!!

Maybe he’s planning a ringless proposal? Or had a ring come to him/found a deal? If he’s as drained as you say I can’t imagine he would have gotten a ring unless he had a separate fund set up. That being said maybe he’s started the proposal planning process and just wants to do something sweet for you at the beach. Otherwise, as I stated above, perhaps he does have a proposal planned! Obviously we can’t tell you for sure here, but all of those things are a positive sign of a proposal to come whether on vacation or a little bit later! 🙂

The signs sound about right and you never know he might have had some money stashed somewhere so you wouldn’t find it. But just in case don’t get your hopes up too high. I wouldn’t want you to be disappointed if nothing happens. But I wish you good luck!

It kind of sounds to me like he might be planning it all out so you’ll be surprised later on…he very well could have it planned for your vacation but I personally think you shouldn’t get your hopes up too much!
I got my hopes up last summer because my SO was asking me all the questions about my ring, what I wanted, the size, etc. and told me to figure it out soon. AAaaand here we are nearly a year later. I knew at the time he didn’t have the money, but kept thinking that all the signs were pointing to yes.
In hindsight I think he was just planning well in advance so that when the time came closer, he wasn’t spoiling the surprise of when.
Lately, he has been bringing up the wedding details a lot more, and it’s definitely on his mind. I know we’re getting close, but after a year of waiting I’ve certainly learned not to get squirrelly over little signs, because you just really NEVER know when it’s coming!

Thanks. The only thing I can think of is if he decided to do a payment plan on a ring instead of paying for it in full like he originally wanted to. I just hate waiting because I know we both want it so badly. I almost wish he would just propose with a cheap stand-in ring so we can get the ball rolling. I keep telling him that we can elope so we dont have to stress about money, but he wants a nice wedding.
