The other night my Boyfriend or Best Friend asked me for my ring size…for my “wedding” ring finger – which he still needs to realize is the left ring finger, lol.
He and I have been talking about our future tons. We know we both want the same things and want to share our life together. In a past long term relationship I was close to the point of engagement where he took me to look at rings but I don’t remember my exact ring size because it was an odd one. So, I told my Boyfriend or Best Friend my guesstimate but didn’t know for sure and that I could find out…
I don’t want to get too involved in the whole thing as I’d like to be surprised (I rarely am and just want a few nice surprises in life!) Soo..I’m wondering if I should back off and wait until he may ask again or go ahead and get it measured and let him know? I don’t want it to impede a proposal but I also want it to happen at it’s own pace…
Any advice from those that have been in or are in a similar situation – or just what you think would be best to do?

Go get it measured and let him know, he asked for the size and cant do anything until he has it.
It would be one thing if you randomly told him the size, but hes asked for it, so go for it!

We went and got measured for rings together. It was a fun day, and hasn’t impeded proposal progress at all.

Your ring size is not the time to play coy and be passive aggressive. Just go get it measured! He asked. Answering a question he asked is not pressuring him! It will cost money and possibly damage the setting (depending on the style) if he gets the wrong size because you weren’t sure and didn’t want to get your finger sized!

I think you should go get it sized – either on your own, and let him know when he asks again or when you tell him what you did that day, or both go together and make it part of a fun day. Almost congratulations, yay!

Get that finger sized. If he didn’t want to know, he wouldn’t have asked.
It will be great to be surprised with a ring that fits!!

there’s a lot of size charts online, so don’t hesitate to measure and let him know ^^

Months ago my boyfriend asked what size my finger was…obviously for prep in case he ever decides to buy me a ring. He suggested we check out a jewelry store and, like a dumbass, I quickly said “I wear a 5 1/2” back to him. D’oh! Still kicking myself for that…
I think you should take him with to the jewelry store to get your finger sized…maybe you’ll have the opportunity to point out a couple of settings you like while you’re there! 🙂

Thanks for the feedback — I went and just got it measured 🙂 Hopefully 4.5 won’t be too small if I gain weight in future!
I definitely didn’t want to be passive aggressive …and it was just a question he asked so it didn’t hurt to answer!
That is a good idea to have gone together to possibly look at some styles. I suppose I don’t want to be the one suggesting that though since you know you don’t want to rush a man!..otherwise I would have done that if he asked!
I’m nervous he may just pick something without me asking but I’m on the fence about being surprised with something he likes and let it grow on me or trying to tell him what I’d like and be content with that.

@linssi: It is exciting! Congrats 🙂 I thought about using a size chart online too but those usually call for string or paper to measure..but be careful if you do that because those bend more and may not be as accurate as a metal measuring from a jeweler..

Lady! Get your but down to the jewelers and find out the size, then update us when the proposal happens! Hurray! Xo

@AmourParfait: Yeah, I wouldn’t have the balls to pull off the “Let’s look at rings while I’m getting my finger sized,” either. Kinda bold, but I bet there’s someone out there who has accomplished it smooth as buttah!
I hear ya on being nervous about what he picks out – from the hints I’m getting from my bf, it will be a surprise if/when he proposes, and I won’t be able to have input on the ring. Unless I leave some hints lying around… (LOL)
