    He waited 6.5 months to purpose after he got the ring.

    @always_the_bridesmaid:  We first talked about rings last February; I sent him links to ones I liked in March. He bought one of them in June and it didn’t arrive until the beginning of August; we went on a vacaction together in August and he was planning to do it then but something about the place we went wasn’t quite right for proposing in. He finally proposed in late October of this year, at home. So 4 months from when he bought it and about 3 months from when it arrived.

    I think having the ring for a year is a little ridiculous, and I would be extremely frsutrated too! But maybe there wasn’t something quite right about where you went recently; maybe he wants to propose at home since you bought the house together. Maybe the fact that you won’t be done with school until 2016 or 2017 is making him wait– I don’t know. 

    Can you talk about it? I hate to ask this, but has he indicated recently that he still wants to get engaged?

    That said he’s probably just waiting for the “right” time. . . men do that. Way to drive women insane!

    I was very involved in the ring process. We had my ring custom made, and he bought the stone separately from the setting.  The stone he bought in March, and the setting was made from April – May.

    After the setting was being custom made, he stopped telling me any details, so I had no idea when he got the ring and thus my proposal was a huge shock/surprise to me (I knew it was coming soon, but that day, 100% clueless). 

    He got the ring on May 31st, and we left for vacation June 8th. He proposed June 9th.  He said it was so hard trying to wait to propose because he had the ring for a full week just sitting there.

    I think some guys want to do it right away, and some want to wait for that moment. Honestly, I don’t think there is a normal.

    We went ring shopping while I was home from school, we actually had a five hour talk about where our life will be going and what we want. At that point we had been together almost three years. He told me to go look at rings while he was at work and find out what I liked and what I did’t like. I shopped around with his aunt for most of the day. Found one and told Mr. Duck. We purchased it on May 27th, 2013. He didn’t propose until November 7th, 2013 while we were vactioning in the bahahams.

    He was extremely nervous, because he was worried that he’d messed up and that I wouldn’t be happy with his proposal. He ended up studdering everything. Very cute lol
