So my SO took me out a few months ago and asked me to look at rings. We had talked alot about marriage. I have actually waited more than two years to be with him. ive loved him for a very long time, and now that its here im excited about being with him forever. Now about eight months ago i underwent WLS(vertical sleeve gastrectomy) and have lost a major amount of weight. And periodically he keeps mentioning me getting refitted for my ring but has no intention of proposing any time before thanksgiving. I know i sound like a brat but he knows im not ms. patient lol . Anyone have any good ideas on not going crazy over this? Thanks 😀

Hehe, I know how you feel and it’s soooo annoying! My BF and I went looking at rings 4 years ago but I didn’t want to get engaged quite yet so I knew I would have to wait for a few years after that. (Taking the ring off in the store and leaving without it is hard!) I have the patience of a flea though, so even though waiting was my choice I STILL hated waiting. I found that the only thing that kept me sane was keeping busy. I tried not to think about engagement, but when I can’t get it out of my head and need to talk about it I just come on here:) Works like a charm for me!
…Though it’s still hard to wait, hehe.

@Sammicake: My SO had me put my input in the ring as well, since he knows how picky I am about what jewelry I wear….even moreso since I have worked in the medical field. We went two weeks ago and looked at them again since there was an event, and I fell in love with two of them…he pickd the one I was more in love with though. He said the sparkle in my eyes gave it away. NOW just to wait for it…..aw man it has been rough knowing that the ring is in order. BUT I try to make myself busy and do things for myself and get out of the house…..as well as try my hardest not to think about it too much when we are together, as I know it will be coming soon.

Oh knowing he’s planning is the worst! (Not the worst, but you know what I mean…lol)
Take my advice and try not to get too anxious about the ring and impending engagement. I was a serious hot mess the 6 months he was making payments on the ring (I did not even know until afterwards that he was making payments and that he did not even pick up the ring until a full three weeks before I actually got it!).
