    A year. He gave the reason as “waiting for the right time”. We were together 6 years and living together already for 2-3 years. He had it hidden in his computer case and then when he got a clear one he hid it in the bottom of a drawer he knew I wouldn’t look in. I didn’t snoop ever. I *thought* he got the ring when he did, but I wasn’t 100% sure so I never really looked into it. I was pretty frustrated by then though and even “yelled” at him because I was mad he wasn’t willing to buy the ring in St Thomas when we were there because it was so much cheaper than in the States. (Joke’s on me, he DID get it there.) He proposed at home, no frills in my PJs, right as we were leaving on an 8 hour drive to go on vacation, but it was worth it. We’ve been married almost 2 years, together just over 9. Waiting stinks but at least you know he HAS the ring – you know it’s already coming 🙂

    I think he said it was like two days or something. He had the proposal planned and was so worried the ring wouldn’t get here in time

    About 2 months.  I don’t know exact dates, but I know he actually went to the jeweler to get a custom ring made in March, and he proposed in May.  He wanted it to be nice weather lol.

    2 months! He had the perfect proposal planned out and just happened to fall in love with a ring earlier than expected.

    2 days. He bought it while I was out of town and proposed when he picked me up at the airport 2 days later.

    lulun :  Two days. He considered doing it the night it arrived, but he decided to wait because I was cranky from work.

    Less than a week! I didn’t know he had a ring, he told me when he purchased it after the fact 🙂

    2 months. That shiner was hidden under my own bed in my apartment the whole time and I was none the wiser! God looking back I should’ve snooped like crazy, but who hides something in someone else’s house?

     As soon as he could. He purchased the ring as soon as he had the income he wanted to have before doing so, and he had it rushed in sizing in order to propose more quickly. I am pretty sure he had the ring for a week or less before he did it on Valentine’s Day.
