    Other, I had no idea he had a ring until he proposed. Granted, he only bought it about an hour before he popped the question.

    We picked out the ring together and it was about a month later when he proposed.

    Me too. I knew that it was gonna happen at some point, because we knew we are going to get married and we talked about it like it’s the simplest thing.

    My guess was that we are going to go ringshopping together, but when he proposed I had no idea that he had the ring for about 6 month or so.

    He had the ring for a solid 24 hours before he proposed!  When I found it (oops!) I thought it would be a week or so, but he just is not good at waiting I guess.  Good thing too!

    I’m in the same boat you are.  He has the ring and not sure how long it will be till he propses.  Realisticly I think it will be a month or two, I hope not longer, but I really don’t know.  Hugs to you, we will get through this “waiting” period!

    Other… I had no clue he had bought it until he proposed. But I found out afterwards that he’d had it for a MONTH! Gah! 😛

    30 minutes…  The time it took to drive from the jewelry store to our favorite restaurant.  When we got to the parking ramp near the restaurant, he asked if I was going to wear my ring, and I told him he hadn’t asked me to marry him yet, so he asked right then in the car in the parking lot.

    I voted other, because I had no idea that he was going to propose and that he had the ring. There was no hint and I never found the ring anywhere (which is strange because we were already co-habitating). But now you’ve got me thinking, so I might now ask him how long he had it before he asked me!

    He’s had A ring for over 2 years, which will probably be THE ring, we talked about it being THE ring at the time he was given it. And no sign of it for me! We wanna get married in 2 or 3 years but I don’t think an engagement is really in the works at all just yet.

    About 2-3 hours. I found th ering by accident during our weekend get-a-way and he proposed later that night. If I hadn’t found the ring box, I would have never knew he had it and th proposal would have been a compete surprise!

    Darling Husband proposed about 20 minutes after he got the ring – he can’t keep a secret to save his life.

    I was laughing about this with my Fiance last night.  He actually had the ring a couple months because it came from my grandmother, but it had to be resized.  I think he had it around a week before he couldn’t wait to propose any more.  Same thing has happened to a ton of my guy friends – they all get the ring and almost immediately propose.

    I didn’t know he was even looking for a ring. We had discussed it and I showed him styles that I liked but I wasn’t expecting it for a few years. He told me the whole process of finding a stone and a setting took about a month and a half. He asked the same day that he picked the ring up.

    Approximately 2.5 hours (he only had the ring for 4 hours total)!! My dad kind of tipped me off by telling me to dress nicely for dinner, haha… It didn’t matter though, because I was still surprised when he pulled off to the side of the road to “check a tire” and proposed right there!
