We were together for almost exactly 7 years. He bought the ring in August 2015 and proposed in February, so about 6 months.

Together almost 5 years, but we started talking about marriage about 8 months ago. I didn’t want to for the longest (divorcée here) but something just clicked and then I really wanted to. He strung me around on the idea that he wanted to save money and get me something really nice and since he had just gotten a promotion, I was expecting it would be around March or April of this year. However, it was all a cover up. He had already talked to my brother and my parents. He had the ring for a few weeks before he finally proposed on Black Friday of last year.

tewx2590:  I don’t really get what’s being asked here. Is it not always a surprise? I met my boyfriend and a year later to the day is when he proposed. I never even saw it coming

tewx2590:  I didn’t know he bought the ring. In July or August we had our timeline talk and he asked me what kind of ring I would want. He proposed October 16th ๐Ÿ™‚ So it wasn’t a long wait for me, thankfully ๐Ÿ™‚

He bought a stand in ring a few days before he proposed.

HE waited! It was two and a half years after he first asked before I said yes, and I made him wait another 3 years before the actual ceremony!

I wasn’t with him when he actually picked the ring out and bought it, but from the time we went to look at rings (so he could get an idea what I liked) to the time he proposed was about a week. ๐Ÿ™‚

My now fiance and I went “ring window shopping” 2 months into our relationship. Then actual ring shopping 10months into our relationship. He ordered the ring to come day before our vacay to Hawaii and popped the question same day at sunset on the beach, 14 months into our relationship. I knew he was the one after the first month, and so i still thought he waited too long, lol.

Within the week of getting the ring he proposed.

We got engaged just a month shy of our two year anniversary. Fiance had made it clear from the beginning he wanted to marry me but just didnt have the money for the ring as he relocated across the state to be with me and it took some time to find a steady job. He also had no idea you could finance a ring apparently!

We went ring shopping several times before we were engaged, then one day while he was at the mall for a hat he ended up going in and seeing if he could get credit at Zale’s (he could) so he bought my ring and proposed that night.
