Just wanted to share my good news. I had suspected my SO bought and ring and this has been confirmed, through him. I think he was trying for a Christmas or New Years proposal but it hasn’t shipped yet! I am not remotely disappointed, there’s been drama with multiple family members and friends lately that has not put me in the mood for celebrating anyway, so i am happy to continue waiting til the right moment. We have this epic weekend planned in a few weeks involving staying in a hotel in a quaint, neat ocean town, running a race the next morning in another ocean town and then visiting a castle that day, would be a great opportunity but I’m not getting my hopes up as I’ve been warned he is not going to do it when I expect it! Anyway, hope everyone else is hanging in there! We survived Christmas!! I am okay with waiting some more 🙂

Lol, he isn’t the only guy who left things too late…
It is a fairly common issue… Men who don’t understand the whole ring buying process
Even many a ring at a chain Jewellery Store has to be Ordered in or sent out to be sized
This often surprises those who procrastinate
In they think they can just walk in a store see it, buy it, and bring it home the same day
I am sure there are a lot of Christmas, New Years, and Valentines Proposals that get postponed / delayed this way
EDIT TO ADD – The GOOD NEWS of course in all of this is that your Ring & Proposal are coming … the Getaway Weekend sounds perfect for it to happen during.
