Sounds like we are about on the same timeline bee (ring purchased end of December 18) and I agree it’s hard waiting! Why spend all of this money on a ring to have it kept in the box??? Makes so sense to me! Lol. Unfortunately for me, there aren’t any big life events happening in the near future, so if he is waiting for that I’ll be waiting until September. But I’ve already told him many times that he could propose on the couch on a Tuesday night and I’d be madly in love with the story. He wants something more special. Keep us updated if anything changes!

It seems as though you have a couple of options: 

1. You propose to him

2. You ask him about timelines 

3. You wait. 

All that being said, I was in the same boat.

My now fiance and I talked about it and he explained that this was a big moment for him too, something that he had thought about since we first met (he’d never told me that before, pretty special to hear). He said that it was a once in a lifetime moment for us and he wanted to get it right. He had plenty of other opportunities too, but in the end he did it within the timeline we set and in the way that he wanted. It all worked out. Keep your chin up Bee, it’s hard to wait, but it’s worth it!

If he’s got the ring, it’s going to happen. Maybe he’s just trying to plan it all out for the right moment. I’d say just chill out and wait. But if it’s really worrying you, ask him 🙂

Looks like I am a bit late to the party. You are probably happily engaged by now haha. Sailing on the same boat here now. Looked at a few model rings together 2 months ago. He told me 4 weeks ago he made a deposit to have a custom ring made. No news from then. I am embarrassed to ask about a timeline. The wait is hard indeed

I’m in the same boat here, too. My SO has had the ring for 4 months now and no proposal yet. His sister recently got engaged to her partner and they’ve been together less time than we have. I think he has a timeline in his head but I don’t want to pressure him as that will push it further back but the wait is hard knowing that we have the ring!
