Oh my gosh! He’s going to propose!

That is so amazing. You shouldn’t be stressing. Enjoy this time because he obviously wants to surprise you. I’m sure he is planning out a wonderful, romantic evening for the two of you and once you get the ring, you will be so happy. I know its hard, but just try not to stress about it. I personally think its a good idea he is keeping the ring at his work (especially if you are known to snoop!) Be excited about the surprise!

I have been there and no matter what you can’t do anything but wait!

Do you really want to snoop (I am a snooper too! but I asked myself that question and the answer was NO) so I didn’t and I am glad I didn’t!

Have fun – it will be worth the wait when it comes!!!!

So funny… I keep coming back to this board and reading such similar stories over and over again! It cracks me up that there are so many couples where the guy has the ring and knows the girl KNOWS about the ring and he still won’t give it up. If my guy had the ring (I believe he’s still shopping) and I knew he had the ring and HE knew I knew he had the ring…. I just couldn’t wait for it. Boys are just mean 🙂

My Fiance pretented he hadn’t gotten the ring – when in fact he had – because we designed it together.  He did me a huge service – I would have been FREAKIN OUT if I had known.

Just take a breath…  You know it’s going to happen now, so keep yourself busy and be happy!!!

You are stronger than me!  I snooped!  I’ve known the ring has been at the jewelry store for the last two weeks, but apparently this whole waiting thing has made me lose my mind.  I peeked in his top drawer of his desk and found appraisal papers for his grandmother’s ring.  It didn’t have a picture, but it was a pretty good description.  It sounds way more amazing than I ever imagined!  And now I finally understand why he’s been so distant whenever I talked about what type of ring I’d like.  I know it should be done at the jewelry store today, but he’ll probably wait for the weekend to give it to me.  Waiting is so freaking hard!!!

AAhhh…congrats in advance!  You just have to sit there and wait, let him do it on his own!  You never know he could have a pretty sweet proposal and you don’t want to mess that up!  You know its coming though so just be patient!

Ooh!  The excitement!  This was the BEST time…honestly it was.  I was expecting him to ask all the time, but he was trying to play it off like he didn’t have the ring yet.  I thought he didn’t have it either, so I kept dragging him to different jewelers who carried the ring…too funny looking back now. 

Don’t snoop.  Don’t stress.  Just know that it’s coming.  SO VERY EXCITING!

At least you know it is in the house (or the office)! My boyfriend tells me this morning that he has already got the ring! He joked that he had to get it before he got a pay rise in October, because then it would be more expensive because it is meant to be 3 months salary! Im pretty sure it is at his parents house, we live in an appartment, and there really isnt anywhere he could hide it here without me finding it!

I think taking the advice of just trying to forget about it is definately very handy! Actually doing that is much more difficult! But that is what Weddingbee is for!!!

good luck!!!!

Wait patiently. 🙂

I know that’s hard, but you gotta do it. I had to wait 4 months. It was pure agony. lol

My girlfriend waited 8 MONTHS for her guy to propose knowing the ring was in the house…how horrible is that??? Needless to say I had to deal with a pretty hefty freak-out at about month 5.

I really don’t have any advice considering I’m waiting (we went ring shopping 3 months ago and it’s making me nuts). Just think about how spectacular it’s going to be when he pulls out that ring!!
