  • poll: How long did YOUR BF wait to propose after getting the ring?

    Almost immediately after he got the ring!

    A couple of weeks.

    Several months.

    A year or more!

    He had it all of 4 hours. Just long enough for him to get a round of golf in before getting home to ask!

    He bought it on Blue Nile, and proposed 2 weeks after it arrived in the mail! 🙂

    I think it was 2 weeks to a month.  We picked out 2 different rings in November  (so he could have options) and he planned to propose during the holidays but when he went back to buy it in December, the shop had closed.  So I think he got it in early January and proposed at the end of January.

    scipioblack :  Three weeks. He proposed one day into our vacation on the beach. He hid it in my beach bag!

    About a month, I’m not sure what his reasoning for the timing was

    He custom made my ring so it didn’t come back in time for our anniversary trip. He got the ring and proposed less than 24 hours after because he was too excited to wait!

    About 3 hours?  I don’t know why you’d wait!

    I used to be one of those people that thought-well why would he buy a ring and hold onto it? He’s clearly not ready. But now I get it why some people do it. My ring was bought in May and I haven’t been proposed to yet. It’s not because he isn’t ready, it’s that I chose every element of my ring so there’s no surprise in the ring or that a proposal is coming. He just wants to do something special and catch me off guard. All I’ve been told is that it’ll happen before this year is over.

    scipioblack :  Mine apparently had the ring for about a month, but the only reason he waited that long was because he was waiting on other things that he needed for his proposal (he also surprised me with a trip to Walt Disney World and Universal, and had this whole theme going lol. It was very sweet and well thought out). I know it’s hard – try to enjoy this time! I made myself a little cuckoo while waiting :).

    Like 4 days. I knew he had bought it, I picked it out, and I knew when it was round-about supposed to come in, but the website said it hadn’t arrived on Friday when I checked online tracking (because I’m nosey). We left for my sorority formal on Friday, so I was confidently disappointed that no proposal would be happening that weekend. Lol. By the grace of God, the Internet lied and he had actually picked it up on Wednesday before we left. Proposed to me Sunday on a trip to a botanical garden that I had planned for us to take on the way home. It was perfect and literally the surprise of a lifetime.

    About a month. He knew he was proposing on a trip we had planned so once that was booked he knew it was a solid plan and got the ring made.

    Almost immediately. He had planned a trip for us, and he picked it up the day before we left! He proposed a few days alter on our anniversary. I think he was hoping to have a week or two earlier, but it got delayed.

    9 months, with his crusty self 😂

     

    But to his defense, he did purchase the ring early on in our relationship. We’d only been dating for 8 months when he purchased my ring.
