We went shopping and priced rings in May, my Fiance bought the ring in December, and proposed in February. It took almost 2 months to the day for the ring to come in after placing the order. I think that’s a big issue a lot of guys face- they don’t realize how long the ring takes to come in! My guy thought it would arrive in 2 weeks (!), planned a big New Years Eve proposal, and well, we all know what happened.

Good Luck and try to enjoy the waiting! Once you get engaged the mania begins!! Keep us posted πŸ™‚

Well… technically, a couple of years. But the first time we talked about it, we were in that “dreaming” stage of life – we knew it’d be coming someday, but he asked me again later since tastes change over time. When I really told him what I wanted it was about 4-5 months before I got the ring.

We looked at rings together in the summer, and he proposed in September.  I’d say there was a 2 month space between.  We had been dating for 3.5 years, so we had definitely discussed marriage often for the past 2 years or so. He always said he wanted to wait until I was done with school… and once that time got close, things started moving.

well we both knew our relationship was heading that way..

BUT we started talking about it seriously in january..kept talking about it through early february. went ring shopping the day before valentines day to pick out the exact ring (i had shopped a little bit before this to get an idea)..he ordered the ring the next week, got it about a week after that, and we were engaged on march 10th. so not even two months after the initial conversation. he had the ring in the apartment for a week and it drove him nuts hiding it.

he doesn’t poke around when he knows what he wants πŸ™‚

Well, we started talking marriage about 4 years before he proposed (when we moved in together). It was something we were always kind of talking about (and eventually I was nagging about), but the conversation never really changed on his end. He totally surprised me last September when he proposed!

Well, my Fiance started *carefully* bringing up ring talk after a year and a half into our relationship. I had told him straight up that I won’t go ring shopping with him (I don’t like ring shopping together, just personal preference, and I wanted it to be a surprise).  I think it took him a little over a month to actually purchase the ring after he started bringing up the ring talk. He talked with my sister (she knew what kind of ring I wanted) and got the ring, but kept it so secretive that I had no idea he had purchased the ring. Then from what I hear, he waited about 3 weeks after he got the ring to propose.

I was told to pick out a ring in late October, he bought the ring in late January, and proposed the first week of May.

Maybe he’s going to wait and pop the question on your trip? How exciting!
