@Buttercupmcgee:  Yup! I gave a few options of ones that I liked online, and knew when it came. I waited a couple of months before the real proposal (with a tipsy “you want to marry me, right???” in our friend’s pool in between). The waiting is rough, but having the surprise is awesome!!! Congrats to you, and I can’t wait to hear how he proposes!!!

In September I got home from work one day to find a letter in the mail from the jewelers we had been to looking for rings. We were planning a trip out of town that weekend so I started freaking out!! 

Technically I only had to wait like a day but it was so hard because I was trying to calm myself down and talk myself into being ok if he didn’t actually propose on our weekend away! 

It’s such a fun exciting time!! Early congrats!!

I had to wait a pretty long time, he wanted to do it on a trip we were going on and the trip got delayed so he didn’t for a long time.

About 2 months ago I picked the ring I really want. We ordered it together about a month later and it was delivered 3 weeks ago to his house! – We ordered the ring online so I don’t know what it actually looks like in real life! We don’t live together and he won’t let me see the ring until he propose! Ugh the wait is killing me!! I have no idea when it’s going to be and he’s being very secretive about it. I’m very excited, I’m sure you are too ๐Ÿ™‚

I have been waiting 3 weeks, we went ring shoping together on a Saturday and the ring i wanted was 30% off and the special was ending that day so we bought it there and then. It needed to be resized and she said it would be ready to pick up on the wednesday. I fully expected him to propose that weekend but it didn’t happen then, or the following weekend…. But i’m pretty sure tonight is the night! He had a date planned for us on Saturday night but let me know yesterday that he had to reschedule it for Friday night, won’t tell me where we are going and this is 100% out of character for him so that along with a few other clues is telling me tonight is the night i’m getting engaged. EEEEK! Excitement overload! Nails are painted and ready, now i just have to figure out waht to wear! ๐Ÿ™‚

My Fiance let me know a long time ago he had a ring.  He was planning on proposing in Sept, but due to life circumstances, we are getting married in Sept instead.  Since we haven’t had a traditional proposal or engagement, I am not getting my ring until the weddin ceremony.

Boyfriend or Best Friend just bought the ring the other day! He told me, but we agreed not to get engaged until March or April (IDK the exact date) but he is leaving it in his home country (we go to school together in the US but he is from Latin America) so that he doesn’t pop the question early! It’s funny, I feel more confident about our decision to get married than I did before I knew he bought the ring. I would think the anxiety of whether we were doing the right hting or not would increase after knowing he bought the ring. Oh well! Guess I’m just weird!

I waited I think … 6 months for him to propose, but I wasn’t even really thinking about it. getting engaged was the last thing on my mind when he did propose.
