    I don’t know if there is a “norm” for this. My guy bought the ring at the end of Aug, got it in early Sept, and proposed in late Oct. Often times I hear it burns a “hole” in guys’ pockets and they propose right away. Other guys I’ve heard wait a year+! When do YOU think he’ll propose?

    i think it depends on the guy. my fi had the ring (not from the store, he just had to ask his mom for it b/c it’s a family ring) for 2 days before he proposed. actually more like a day and a half.

    @krissy that is such a long wait!

    My FH had it for about two weeks…I didn’t know though! He said once it was even in his pocket and he was considering proposal that night but waited two more days since I was having a stressful day that day…he made an excuse to run down to his car and hide it!

    well my partner had my ring made my uncle who lives over in NZ and he was faxing and calling him for a few months before he was actually flying over to see the family, the night after they flew in and we went over to my mums place to see them (and when my uncle gave him the ring) it was the next day that he took me out onto the Jetty were we first sat and talk for like 4hrs *gets all teary eyed*

    took my guy less than 60 seconds because he got the call that the ring was ready, i told him to get is **** down there asap and as soon as i walked thru his front door he sat me down and put that baby on my finger

    ive heard of some guys holding onto the ring for months – i would rather strip wallpaper off the walls with my eyelids than wait that long!

    Yeah, it totally depends on his personality. Fiance and I went ring shopping together and I was there when he bought the ring but we had to send it to get resized. He told me that he wanted the actual proposal to be a surprise, so he would NOT tell me when the ring was ready. He gave the jeweler his cell phone number instead of our home number so that I wouldn’t know when they called to say the ring is ready.

    He actually proposed the very night he went back to get the ring. Later on he told me that on his way to the jeweler he was thinking about the perfect proposal and how much time he’d need to plan it out, maybe weeks or even months, but then after he had the ring he got really antsy and just HAD to do it, and on his drive home he got inspired and came up with the proposal, and so we got engaged that very same night. I was certainly not expecting it so soon after the ring was bought!

    My husband had the ring for two weeks before we proposed. But I don’t think there’s a set guideline we can tell you, unfortunately 🙁

    Just enjoy the anticipation for now, and keep us posted 🙂

    Haha. I know exactely what you mean by him calling you into a room or using a serious tone. I jumped at that too! For a while then nothing happened and I got over it then one day is called me into a room WITH a serious voice and I didn’t see it coming! I was completely surprised for being so obsessed a few weeks earlier.

    my fiance had my ring for 2 months… he wanted to go to wine country to propose and I just didn’t get it and had to keep postponing for work. Finally when I got up there, he proposed!  Be patient (as hard as it is!) – I’m sure your soon to be Fiance just wants to find the right time.
