@Buttercupmcgee:  I am in the exact same boat! I sent SO some ring options and he let slip that he actually bought one on friday (online).  I know they’re making it a bit custom for me so that should take about 2 weeks, plus a few days shipping…and I am totally freaking out! Can’t wait!!!

Welcome to my life. All we have to do is get my grandmothers ring sized and then, DEAR GOD…. Sometimes it feels the waiting is going to kill you. Don’t worry, it will happen, and when it does, you will never forget it. 🙂

I had been “waiting” for about a year and a half. But from the time he got the ring until the time he proposed, it was a little over a month. It didn’t help that he kept going out of the country for business unexpectedly…

My bf put my e-ring on LAYAWAY three days ago (we want to have it paid for so it’s not another thing to worry about during the wedding planning stages).

He says that he wants us to go visit his parents the week after Thanksgiving, so I let him know that since we so rarely see them, we should be engaged by then so I can show off my ring. 

So I’m fully expecting to be engaged sometime in early November, if we follow my timeline.

My Fiance waited a week and a half and threw me off by saying he ordered it when he got it in store.  I think he wanted to wait long enough that I wouldn’t expect it but not to long that he would give it away.  I even told him he was only alowde to hold onto it for 2 weeks max, I just don’t see the point of waiting.  Some people say waiting for the perfect proposal is ok but isn’t any proposal perfect just because he is asking to spend the rest of his life with you?

My SO and I ordered the ring just 3 days ago and im already so freaking excited!

I know it will take about 2-3 weeks to make and arrive here so im still a bit away but I really hope once it arrives it wont take very long for the actual proposal!!

I’m in the same boat too! My SO let it slip that he had the ring bought after I was playing with his phone and his dad texted that the jewler called double checking my size!! I don’t know when it will actually be in his possession, but its paid for, and I’m thinking it will be a month or so before the proposal. EEEK!

I have been waiting for 6 weeks now! But I know he wont propose anytime soon because he gave me a little hint that he will do it around when we move in to our new apartment. It’s still under renovation until the end of September 🙁 It’s killing me to wait! Especially when I asked about the ring and he said “the ring is so beautiful as you are…” And he won’t even let me have a peek. I desperately in need of a time machine! But I’m glad that I’m not alone 🙂
