It sounds like it’s definitely happening. Be patient, it’s only been a week 🙂

It definitely sounds like things are in the works, but remember that some rings have a long “lead time” on them– so even if he is actively working on it, it could still not be until next year.  He definitely doesn’t want you to be dwelling on it. 

There are so many stories on here of Bee’s ruining their surprise proposals with being impatient; you DON’T want to be one of them! 

Just start getting manicures about once a month or so, and enjoy the anticipation! 🙂

So you know he’s bought you a ring.  You know what’s on his mind.  You know something good is coming.  

He obviously wants it to be something more special/planned than just “oh, the ring came in, I guess you should wear it now”.  Just try to relax and let the actual proposal be a surprise.

he prob designed your ring.. it takes a while to come in if thats the case… my fiance had my ring designed (he did it all on his own, i had no idea)  he proposed in January and he started looking around Septemeber.. so i think it takes some time for the ring to be made. They might also have another diamond that he wants that they are waiting for it to come in.. just be patient 🙂

Have you been on the Waiting board? Its under NWR (Not Wedding Related). Its full of other Bees who are enjoying, or not, the waiting period.

You have no idea what that call was about. You’ll drive yourself bonkers if you dwell on it. Try you forget it and enjoy your man!

You should just ask him if he is going to propose this year or not. We can’t read his mind anymore than you can.

Seems like he already has the stuff figured out and ordered; hence the difference in routine.

It sounds to me like he has the ring and is now just waiting for the right time to give it to you! He quit looking at ring websites because he already bought it, so why keep looking right??

But don’t let yourself get too paranoid with the waiting…my FI had the ring almost 2 months before he found the perfect time (luckily I had no idea otherwise I would have been looking for a proposal around every corner).

it sounds like it’s in the works! be patient, it’s only been a week. he may need extra time for the ring, and may just want to keep you on the edge of your seat so you are surprised when it happens, and it’s a special moment! 🙂

@KhunClair:  It sounds like he’s selected a ring and is waiting for the right time to propose.  He could be waiting for this weekend, for Halloween, Thankgiving, or some other special time in the near future.  Just take a deep breath and allow him to surprise you.

He probably is waiting for your ring to come in now. It’s coming soon- be patient! It takes a while for these things to come in.
