My only indication is that the ring should be ready “soon” (maybe today, maybe a month from now) and our 3 year anniversary is this Sunday. I did happen to see his mother transferred $500 into his account (I promise I wasn’t snooping!) so maybe he asked for the cash to pick the ring up before payday on Friday? Hmmm…


So many questions so few answers… 😉

I’m in the same boat as you, so no advice! Here’s to hoping it comes soon!

I honestly had no idea until the words “will you marry me” came out of his mouth! Even though we were going on a super romantic date that night, I actually thought to myself that he definitely wasn’t going to propose that night!

I had no idea until I saw the ring! He was like “Marry me” and I was like “Huhwhaaa?” until I saw the ring.

Then I screamed and cried and jumped up and down before composing myself juuuuuust enough to say yes!

I had no idea until he got down on one knee and asked, and I said “really? are you serious?” No idea whatsoever. He didn’t act differently or anything.


However, the weird thing was I was on my way home (it was my birthday) and in my head I thought “I’m going to be engaged tomorrow” but then reminded myself not to get my hopes up because nothing had indicated it would be happening.

No advice here…I’m in the same situation. He has the ring, but hasn’t given it to me. Our 3 year anniversary was a week ago, but I STILL don’t have it. This is driving me insane!! Lol

i got a gut feeling and a weird premonition dream that he was going to propose.

Just don’t psych yourself out about it if it doesnt happen exactly when you think it will.  Just enjoy being with him! 🙂

Good luck & keep us updated!!!

@vanike:  OMG! That kind of intuition! I had the same kind of thoughts!

Unfortunately, I know almost positively when it’s happening, and it’s driving me nuts!

Since last summer (AN ENTIRE YEAR!) SO has been talking about fall, talking about a proposal, and talking about how “we need to go to a pumpkin patch just by ourselves this year” and has given me pumpkin-related gifts all year long.

(I am a bit of an autumn nut.) 🙂

So for me, those were the hints. And that he recently told me not to visit the ring I want anymore because it will be gone soon, and that he plans to talk to my dad over the next couple months.

I kind of feel like he’s anxious for it to get here soon too!

I hope yours comes soon!!

@countrygirl12:  So it is great for you!


My SO has the ring 90% chance… coz we went to store and picket it up and he was ready to put a down payment. I even cooked a nice regional meal for the jeweler who would give my SO a friend discount. He better have it. We are on vacay now and SO promised me 8 months ago we are getting engaged now. I have been anxious for 2 months now. Before we left I was on the edge. More anxious but happy because my SO likes to mess with me and said several times we might not do it. I got so angry yesterday and today because of those words. I hate feling this powerless and like I have no to say. I wish we just get the proposal done, I was waiting sooooooooooooo long… I don;t kknow how to stop thinking about the ring and proposal. Meeting friends and family and going to wedding is gonna be toigh. Arghhhhhhhh
