Sounds like either August or earlier if he decides to surprise you. Just because I’m sneaky, I think I’ll go away for a few days so he has free time to go visit her without your knowing. But that’s just me! Tongue out I’m wondering why he can’t pay her online or mail her a check if he’s already seen the ring.

I think you should let him plan the proposal.

Don’t get your hopes up- he will do it when he is ready to and not when you want him to and he may not even go with your aunt after all- he may find something somewhere else that he likes – trust me. I did everything I could do to set the mood for proposing—- he surprised me and did it on his own when he was ready.

@Anxiouspeanut: It is, but how are you not going to get your hopes up that weekend? You are specifically chosing it because its right around your anniversary, close to family, nicer weather, etc. He’s already told you its coming. Now let him do his thing

I think you need to realise that while he may go pick out the ring when you go there in July, he may not necessarily give it to you. If your boy is anything like mine, the more he feels you are onto him in regards to proposal, the longer he will wait. Maybe he really and truly wants it to be a surprise and to be special for you?

We all get that waiting SUCKS and it can be hard to be patient, but sometimes you need to not mention it for a little while to allow for the engagement to happen.

Heres some perspective dear, and I truly understand how you are feeling right now

Right now, this very second, the ring could very well be in the room Im sitting in. Im at SO’s house at the moment…the idea that I would ask him where it is, or ask him to give it to me now, when I know he has something planned, would really hurt him. Thus, I have promised not to look, or even bring it up to him. Its very tempting yes, but you gotta give the guy some time to make this special for you..whenever it is. If he gets the ring during that period, you have to be ok with the idea that he may not give it to you then, you may have to wait some more. Like I said, Im sitting right now, here, and I could be looking and searching for the ring, and very well find it…but Im not..and thats the reason why.

Give him some time, it’ll be worth it.
