Okay, so I’ve been reading this board for months now since my boyfriend and I started to seriously talk about getting engaged and buying a ring, etc. We have been together for 4 years as of May and we have always been super honest and open with each other about our plans for the future.
A few months ago we went ring shopping together and he had me trying on various rings, I liked one or two but nothing made me super excited. Then this passed Sunday we went to the jewellery store again and I saw one particular style and I suddenly got super nervous and jittery. The sales woman was so nice and helped me put on the ring and such, and my boyfriend cool as always, said “We’re going to go take a walk and talk about it.” My heart started racing because he always casually brushes things off and doesn’t continue to talk about it, especially when it comes to rings. He then shoos me back to the car and I see him walking back WITH A BAG! He bought the ring!!!!!
Of course now he’s going to torture me even more with waiting, but we talked about it and he’s really glad we weren’t super traditional and I helped him pick it out; he knows I’m the one who’s going to be wearing it for the rest of my life so you see how awesome he is 🙂
Now for the WORST PART, the ring needed to be sized, it was about a 1/4 size too small so I wondered if he was going to send it away to get it sized but he quickly muttered “It won’t be back soon enough…” So he has a plan and it’s KILLLING MEEEE!!
Ok, rant over. I had to tell someone he’s basically banned me from saying anything to anyone before he proposes but I know he has the ring and it’s the worst/best thing ever! 😛

welcome to the forums as well – perhaps joining the waiting list will make the wait a little more bearable?
