    He had the ring for four months before he proposed.

    My grandma gave it to my brother to give to him and we had it resized to fit me and STILL he made me wait another four months!

    I had no idea he even had the ring.  But I think he asked with in two weeks.

    The ring came in about a week and a half before he proposed.  He didn’t pick it up, however, until the day before he proposed, less than an hour before we left town for the weekend.

    He had the ring sent up to my parents’ house for Christmas. It was supposed to arrive two days before Christmas. Instead, it arrived on Christmas Eve before we went to my aunt’s house for a gathering. He proposed on Christmas Day. Later, he told that he would have proposed after Christmas if the ring didn’t arrive on time. I had no idea he had a ring previous to the proposal. There was chatter on my family’s side when I went home for a baby shower, but I ignored it and didn’t think anything of it.

    He proposed 3 hours after he brought it home from the store.  Guess he didn’t want to wait!

    I had no idea he bought the ring, so I didn’t have to wait. =) But HE waited 5 days after he had the ring to propose. =P

    The time it took for him to drive from the jewelry store to my house.

    I chose other because, after he ordered the diamond he wanted (from a Canadian mine; conflict-free) and it finally arrived, it was practically burning a whole in his pocket. He literally picked it up from the jeweler while I was at work and could barely wait for me to get in the door and drop my purse before he proposed.

    It was very sweet, totally him and absolutely perfect!

    Oh yeah and so now I got home just now and as I promised in my previous post (I sad I had no idea in the previous post of mine), I asked my FH and he said he had the ring for a week before he finally proposed. When I asked how come I never found out, he grinned and said ‘well maybe I kept it at work’ 🙂

    he started talking to my BF in july of last year about my ring preferences. he asked my dad for his blessing in december and bought the ring in february. proposed in may. so it was a process and took a while…somehow i didn’t know until he actually popped the question though, so i guess i technically didn’t wait at all!

    He waited a day… he said he couldnt hold onto it anymore and really just wanted to ask me to marry him why wait…
