I agree with the light-hearted, but to-the-point comments back. He calls you his wife, you wave your finger and say, “But I’m NOT.” He talks about wifely duties (which I find rather offensive anyway), and you reply that you have no such things, as you are not a wife. In other words, make it clear that you are not comfortable with his pretending to have already done what he has not (proposed), but don’t be angry or nagging about it. He’s only had the ring a week, and he doesn’t know that you know, so I wouldn’t be so sure that he’s taunting you; he just seems a little too comfortable.

imjessjess :  Sorry if I sounded snarky. I still really don’t get why guys hold onto rings. Surely it makes more sense to give them soon after buying them. It’s not a surprise anyway because the female knows it’s coming especially if she was there while he was buying it. What’s the point in prolonging anxiety? Bee, I hope your special moment comes very soon!

imjessjess :  My husband held onto the ring for 6 months. The proposal was 100% perfect and completely us and absolutely worth the wait. He bought the ring in February and then proposed in July because he wanted to make it special and do it on a camping trip.

Maybe your boyfriend is planning something special that takes a little while to pull together or is season dependant or something. 50 years from now it’s seriously not going to matter if he proposes tomorrow or 6 months from now.

imjessjess :  He’s probably just waiting for a “special” moment. Try to relax.  He doesn’t even know that you know and a week is nothing.

Considering he doesn’t know you know he has the ring, I really don’t think he’s being cruel. I’m sure he’s just excited, as are you. He will propose when he’s ready and has planned it perfectly for you. Try not to become bitter with him. This is suppose to be happy time! Enjoy him and the holidays and try to forget about the ring. I know, easier said then done. But there’s no sense in stressing. It will happen when it happens! 🙂

I know I know. I will never understand  this , unless the would-be groom is getting cold feet, or likes  ‘ playful’  little power  games.  All this joking/teasing/taunting  and apparerntly waiting for special moments , l just don’t  get.
