@gramgeek: First off, that’s awesome he brought up your ring finger and even stopped when you went by the store! Your heart must have been going a mile a minute!

I can relate, when my SO randomly asked me if 3 carats was considered big for an engagement ring during a commercial…and then a couple months later actually asked what I thought of another ring in a different commercial, if I thought it was nice… even though I’m DYING for him to propose, I felt like I didnt know what to do or say. I think it was the shock factor. I was just so not expecting that to come out of his mouth. Also, I’m usually the one that would bring up that sort of stuff, so to have him finally start talking about it totally threw me for a loop. A good loop though!

Hopefully our sparklies come soon! ๐Ÿ™‚

Wow that is great! How did you bring it up to him? I think I should maybe do that because hinting is not working. He knows I want to be married soon and have babies by a certain age but he hasn’t asked me yet. What exactly did you say to your fiance?

Fiance was def doing that before he popped the q.  He would joke about it, play with my finger, asked me what style I like and even stopped by a jewelery store for fun so he can see what the diff rings were.  I didn’t want to read too much into it, but he was preparing to propose. ๐Ÿ™‚

So it seems like your boyfriend is taking notes…..

That reminds me of my ring trip with SO!  We were just hanging out at the mall and he suggested we go into some jewelry stores.  I felt pretty strange too because I wasn’t prepared.  I didn’t want to try anything on because my nails weren’t done!  Still, it was a necessary trip, so SO could learn the difference between princess/emerald/wedding set/plain band etc.

Hope your proposal comes soon!

lol Yay! My FH asked a billion times which finger was the right one. We would even “practice” with other rings. And he still forgot when he proposed. Definitely asked which finger before he put it on. lol Yay boys.

@gramgeek: I am so like this.

I’m waiting and want to be engaged/married, but whenever he brings up anything even relating to rings/weddings etc. I freak and pretty much can’t talk about it, so conversation dies… Even now he walks by jewelry stores and looks in and looks in the windows and I end up turning my head in the exact opposite direction and walking faster… bad I know. But I think I do it because I want a surprise.

We’ve been together for 4 1/2 years… I’m working on getting more comfortable with it all.
