UGH, this is tricky bee! I’m in a slightly similar spot in that I’m semi-convinced that my OH will propose on my birthday trip in Feb, to the point that I’ll be a little heartbroken if he doesn’t. I’m trying to talk myself out of it but it’s hard! I don’t have the faintest clue if he has the ring though! 

How did you find out about your ring?

anonbee30202 :  Oh my gosh that’s so exciting!!!!! I totally agree, it would be amazing if he proposed on your trip. Not sure what advice I have to offer, I’d be really excited if I were in your position too! 

Good luck, and please keep us updated either way. I’d love to know what happens ๐Ÿ™‚

My husband waited 6 months after picking up the ring. It was 100% worth it. His proposal was amazing and absolutely perfect. If he’s waiting, he has a reason. Trust that it is worth it!

Aww bee, I’m sorry! 

My Fiance waited 4 months to propose after having the ring, so I get it!

Just knowing that he has it and is planning to propose is great, though!! The proposal is soooo worth the wait!

Mine Fiance had the ring for 8 months before asking me. Haha it’s worth the wait. A few months is nothing in the big scheme of forever just remember your end goal

My SO is coming up to a year with the ring…seriously! I hope your wait isn’t even half of that time! I too found out accidentally that he had the ring. I know it will be worth the wait, but it has been hard. Good luck to you bee!

anonbee30202 :  My Fiance had the ring for 7 months before proposing, and showed me the ring when he first got it in (just the setting, the stone was somewhat of a surprise), so it was hard to not bring it up in conversation with him and nag him about it, since I knew, and he obviously knew that I knew. I know how tough it can be, but just try to stay positive and keep yourself busy. It will be worth the wait!

Hey! Awww I completely understand!!! My SO asked for my ring size TWO YEARS AGO!!! Every holiday, every birthday, every anniversary, everytime he bends down to tie his shoe lace, my heart skips a beat and i think he will propose! The worst was when he took me to Italy for my birthday, and he booked a presidential suite. He grabbed my hand and walked me towards the balcony door, and i could see a small box on a table on the balcony through the balcony curtain. I thought ‘this is it, this is the moment…’ turns out it was just a fancy ashtray HAHAHA!! Anyway its so hard not to get angry or resentful right??

i spoke to a friend who gave me some brilliant advice. She said ‘you know hes planning to propose right? so he has a reason he hasnt proposed yet. so dont ruin the special times in the present by worrying about the future’ it was the best advice i got!! And our relationship is wonderful and happy ๐Ÿ™‚

I know its hard, but focus on the happy times and what you love about him. I really hope it happens for you soon, he has the ring so now its just a matter of the right time ๐Ÿ™‚ Keep us updated!!

anonbee30202 :  Just be patient. My Fiance bought the ring in April of 2015, proposed January of 2016. Good things come to those who wait.

anonbee30202 :  LOL we dated for 7 years before he proposed. Knowing he had the ring for 6 months was nothing.

But seriously in 50 years it isn’t going to matter at all if he held onto the ring for a little extra time.

anonbee30202 :  Totally understand the disappointment and small feelings of bitterness. At least you know he has the ring! I can’t even get confirmation of that on my end so I feel further than ever from it…
