HI! Im new to the bee and also waiting now 🙂
Just last weekend we were out to dinner/drinks celebrating my new promotion at work and he was acting very nervous, so he rushed off to the bathroom but it took him a while. When he got back, i was worried that he was okay. But instead he spilled the beans to me. He told me he’s been trying so hard for me to not find out, but he had bought and ordered a ring online. Next week he’ll be away for work trip, and he knows that its getting delivered to our apartment in the mail the same day he leaves for his trip. He was really disapointed that he had to tell me, cause he knew i was going to find out anyway when I saw the package and had to sign for it. I was so super excited and happy though!
I haven’t told a single person yet of the news and him spilling the beans. I want it to still be a secret until he actually does it. I still want to be surprised of how he does it. But Im so secretly excited now! He’s got the ring! I just wanted to share with some fellow bees of the news atleast!
I believe its coming today in the mail when I get home from work! Eek! I will need my extra will power!

I waited for nearly a year – he had the ring that long, said he was waiting for the perfect moment. We had already been friends for 8 years, dating for 5! Wow I waited a long time.

@Blissfu1: He did it! it took him one day, not even. As soon as he got the ring within hours he proposed to me! I believe though that from when he shopped, picked it out and ordered it- it took him a few months.

I have to wait too! I wanted to be engaged before my BF moved in and he wanted to get engaged afterward… He came up with the compromise of buying the ring before he moved in to “show me his intentions” and then get engaged after living together for a little while. I think he’s already bought the ring, since he mentioned something about engraving and that is listed as an option on the ring…. not sure, but expect sometime between this November and May (6 months).

My Fiance told me (at his sisters’ surprise birthday/surprise ‘I’m pregnant’ party,lol) that he was going to go ring shopping next day, as it was Massachusetts tax-free weekend. I also knew we were going to be going away in mid-September. I thought he might give it to me sooner, as he is terrible at keeping secrets. However, the little bugger made me wait almost a month.. even after he told me he asked my parents permission to marry me. So, it was worth the wait, but a hell of along month!
Congrats and good luck!

My husband couldn’t contain himself when he bought my ring — told me the very same afternoon, but made me wait THREE MONTHS to give it to me! It was such torture, but worth the wait for the perfect proposal he planned 🙂

I am waiting! Im literally counting down the days!
SO gave me a diamond a couple of weeks ago and I went to choose a setting with my mum (as SO had to go away with work). Ring is locked away at my parents house and boyf hasn’t even seen it! He doesn’t get home until the end of Oct and even then I don’t know if he’ll give it to me straight away or make me wait!
Also, he considers us engaged even though there’s no ring or proposal! To me it doesn’t seem real and he’s not even here!
Im not sure if I’m engaged or waiting! I bit of both I guess!

I’ve been waiting for my ring since June.
My boyfriend and I went sapphire hunting in montana back in June and it took until September for them to heat treat the stones and send them back and now there’s been another hiccup and we won’t be able to have it cut until December at the soonest.
I am going absolutely insane. I don’t know how I’m going to make it until December – I don’t even care about the ring at this point, I just want to be engaged!

I’m waiting too. My ring should be ready in 5 weeks, but I don’t think I will be getting a proposal till after Christmas. It is a very exciting time! Let us know when you end up getting your ring!!

@Buttercupmcgee: Yes! My boyfriend (now fiance, yay!) and I went ring shopping together in early September. I thought we were just going to look, but I found something I really loved. He agreed to go ahead with the financing process, and the center diamond was placed in the jewelry store’s vault. We were told it could take up to 8 weeks to receive the finished ring. In the back of my mind I knew I’d probably be waiting a while, but it was so difficult!
He just proposed on Tuesday (11-13), and after he did it he confessed that he had the ring for a few weeks! I couldn’t believe it! He even told me he’d smuggled it into the apartment one day while I was home (we’ve been living together for almost two years) … And I had no idea. Haha.
Hopefully your wait will be over soon! Keep us posted! 🙂
