My Darling Husband waited almost a month after getting the ring before he finally popped the question. Even worse, he had the ring shipped to my house (he’s in the navy so he used my address as his mailing address at the time), and told me I wasn’t allowed to open the package! Talk about torture!

If November really is when your man is going to propose, then just sit tight! It’s not that far off!

I don’t know whether he has it in his possession or not yet, but I know he has one chosen. I’m guessing I’m getting it on my bday/our vacation, last week of October. So long away!

He has had the ring for 2 months and there is no possibility of me getting it for at least another month, but he has told me not to expect it until next year…

My Mum and Dad are away at the moment (sailing the pacific – lucky for some) and so he wants to ask them in person when they return…

My Fiance couldn’t wait! The week after buying it he popped the question 🙂 (Nov is so not far away. He will be worth the wait!)

  • Wedding: October 2009

Hey girl…you may not want to hear this…my Fiance bought my ring in October 2008 and he didn’t propose until January 2009! I knew he had the ring and I thought between the holiday season (Thanksgiving with my kids and his entire family, Christmas and New Year’s here at my house-part with and part without kids) and family events that I was sure to be engaged before the end of 2008! Didn’t happen. I finally settled into the thought that it would be Valentine’s weekend and we went away for our one year anniversary in January over MLK weekend-he proposed! Since I had put it out of my mind, I was totally suprised and it was totally unexpected!

My Fiance bought the ring in Feb 08 and didn’t propose til July 08. Honestly, I was totally ok with that due to our long distance relationship. I don’t think you should get too upset about it, though. You know he has it so you know it’s going to happen eventually. Probably sooner rather than later. Just keep your nails lookin’ pretty!

From my personal experience I wouldn’t put pressure on him. Maybe occasionally bring it up, I know its hard but most guys want to get that spontaneous feeling when they do it, on their own terms. 

My Fiance bought the ring in March and didn’t propose until May.  We picked the ring out in January and I kept asking him when he was going to do and he just kept telling me ‘when the time is right’. I had no idea he had the ring that whole time though. Eventually I gave up asking around middle of April and I think that’s what he was waiting for. So I agree with Liztwinz. Having pushed it out of my mind made it feel spontaneous and unexpected.

i think he ordered it from the jeweler about 2 weeks ago….buuut i don’t know how long it will take to make (he’s having an heirloom stone set), and he hasn’t said anything about it. and he doesn’t know i know anything…

i’ve actually been really good about not asking or saying anything! that day i tried to sneak it out of him–i think he went to see the jeweler while i was getting a massage (he had bought me a gift certificate for our 3 yr anniversary), so that night right before we went to sleep, i said “thank you for my present…” but he knew i “meant” the massage and didn’t get flustered at all! dang! haha. i thought i was being so clever and would get a hint….

so, yeah. waiting….but pretty happily, i was most anxious about waiting before we really talked about where we were terms of moving forward, but since then i’ve been pretty calm and happy about things. we’re in a great place! his birthday was this week, and he was really happy with his presents and celebration, so, yay 🙂

@melymae- my guy is clueless 🙂 he doesn’t know that i know he was even shopping. i’m sure he knows i suspect because he’s not-so-subtle… but i have never one time asked him about ring shopping or when he plans to propose. It is quite hard to keep my mouth shut!

My fiance and I went ring shopping together in May 2008.  I found “the ring” at that moment.  We didn’t buy it right then, so I was wondering when he would find the time to go back and get it.  While I was on a trip over the summer, he went and bought a totally different bridal set!  When I got back from my trip, we went to look for his wedding band.  He saw the difference in price between the one I loved and the one that he got for me.  We ended up getting “my” rings and his wedding band together.  I was not very patient and I kept bugging him about it.  One morning in July, we were on the way to fix up my classroom before this school year started, and he walked out into a different part of the school.  When I found him he was on his knee to propose!  It was perfect, but I wish I would have been more patient and not put so much pressure on him.

I am waiting just like you! It sucks! He could’ve picked it up yesterday but I’m not sure if he has.

I had no idea that he bought a ring but after he proposed he told me that he had bought it in March…..he proposed on July 25th.
