We picked out the ring in February and it was sized and diamond set by beginning of March I believe and he proposed April 20, so inbetween 1-2 months ๐Ÿ˜€

Fiance waited about an hour. He and his Aunt picked it out since he doesn’t have a relationship with his Mother and his Grandmother passed last year. He didn’t feel comfortable doing it alone. He came home, woke me up, and pooped the question.

6 months! Darn near killed me! LOL, Jk. He did wait a while though, because he wanted to get his financial situatio together as well as plan an amazing proposal (right before our anniversary, in the Bahamas at sunset) so he is forgiven. ๐Ÿ™‚

Good Luck!

He had it for a week. He waited until he could propose on our anniversary, when we were in Turkey ๐Ÿ™‚

About 6 weeks I think…. He bought it the beginning of June, and proposed mid-July. BUT the reason he waited so long was because one of my cousins was getting married the first weekend in July and he didn’t want to step on any toes. He’s thoughtful like that.

But he did tell me that he would have liked to have done it right away. He said it was making him nervous having it. He’d check on it everytime he left the apartment to make sure it was right where he left it.

My fiance is like a little kid on Christmas when he has something to give to me.  Example: the last two Christmases (sp?) he has given me my present 2 weeks and 1 week ahead of time, because he can’t wait.  He purchased my ring on a Tuesday, it came in on a Saturday morning, and he had plans to wake up before me on Sunday morning and surprise me in bed with the ring.

This fell apart for two reasons: 1. Again, he can’t wait when he has something to give to me and 2. He literally never wakes up before me.

So needless to say, he proposed to me a couple of hours after receiving the ring.  (And he probably would’ve done it sooner than that, but I was at work ๐Ÿ™‚  )

He’s had it for a while, but he’s dead set on waiting until we move into the new apartment in 2 weeks. AHHGGG. I’m trying not to nag, but I’m going crazy.

Fiance waited 2 days after getting the ring. He didn’t ask my father though.

One day! He picked up the ring the night before he had planned to propose. He’s such a procrastinator!

I didn’t know the proposal was coming, but he bought it on a Monday and we were engaged that Saturday!
