HELP! i didnt mean to find my engagement ring!
My boyfriend and i openly discuss our wedding and future plans all the time. about 3 weeks ago he had a lunch date with my dad, and the next day i had a feeling he bought the ring because he was acting funny and hiding something under his jacket, and when i went into the other room i heard him run to the bag under his jacket and open the closet and slam it really fast. 2 weeks ago i was pulling out some sheets for our bed and accidently found the ring on the very top sheld (hes not very good and not being ovious)
anyway (sorry this is long) its been two weeks now and nothing! i wont tell him that i found it because that would ruin the suprise that he must be planning, and im totally bummed that i found it in the first place. his sister called and asked him if he’s “done the deed” and he simply replied “no”
im going crazy! i know i just have to be patient and wait, and thats what ill do but is it weird he hasnt proposed yet? we have no special events or anniversaried coming up until october…though we did choose to get married in may and its may now…i dont know…ill stop rammbling!
oh one more detail he told me he will propose probably in 2 years (that was a couple days ago) what the heck!? =(

I have noticed that guys usually don’t want the girl to know it is coming. It sounds to me like he was trying to throw you off the track so be quiet about it and try to forget it (I know it’s hard)! Read Mr. Bee’s Three Step Plan too.

I agree with MissAsB! That is what my Fiance did! We went ring shopping and then he kept hinting that we should go look around more, but we never went again! Later, I found out it was because he had ordered the ring and didn’t want me to find one I liked better! So the whole time he was all “I think I have a pretty good idea about what you want” but that is all it ever was. Then one day after dinner, we were on the couch and BAM! It happened! SO unexpected and so exciting! I wasn’t expecting it for another month or two (at the earliest!). He is waiting for the right time…and throwing you off the scent is what guys love to do. Make you a bit bummed cause you think it isn’t happening for a while and then surprise you! Silence is the key here and you will have that beautiful ring on your finger soon!

haha – i did this same thing. my fiance wasn’t very good at hiding it either and every time i was near this one drawer in our house, he would run over and stand in front of it (duh!! something must be in there!) so being the curious girl i am, i looked in the drawer one day after he left for work…and tried it on. yes, i put it on. oops. haha. anyway, after finding it, i was expecting it like every day, but it took him another month. i was glad i waited and didn’t tell him. he had flown in my best friend to be there for it, so he was just waiting on timing. i’m sure your boyfriend is doing the same thing. he wants it to be perfect. he’s obviously going to propose, or else he wouldn’t have bought it. just be patient and realize that although it sucks now, you’re going to spend the rest of your life with him and in the long run, these days/weeks/months, won’t matter. hope this helps!

ahh..i found the receipt yesterday..he bought it Friday..and all friday night, saturday, and sunday morning he kept asking me to find pictures of rings online. He keeps saying “i have a pretty good idea of what you want” hahaha…im keeping hush though, because i know he wants to surprise me. Your man is probably just trying to distract you..how exciting!

My fiance had the ring for about 8 months until he proposed. And I knew it . . . the whole time . . . and he knew I knew. I went crazy! But, he had a plan and had a particular time that he wanted to do it and that was what he waited for.
Be patient, wait and know that he has something planned for you and you probably don’t want to mess it up!

That’s sooo weird! When I was reading this I was like “umm did I post this in my sleep and not remember doing it?” lol. I found my ring too! And the silly boy hid it with the sheets which is how I found it when I was changing them! Not the best hiding spot obviously.
I tried to keep it a secret like you are, but I’m awful at hiding things and can’t lie to save my life so he knew something was up and when he asked me what was wrong I blurted out that I had found it lol. He was definitely bummed that the surprise was ruined but he had already blurted out that he had bought the ring a month earlier so I knew it was coming. We’re awful at keeping secrets eh? lol.
He came up with the idea of going back to the jewellers and I could pick out 5 rings I liked and then I would leave so he could either exchange the ring for a new one or keep the one I had seen and I would have no idea which ring he would be proposing with. In the end he chose a new ring that we both loveee and it still ended up being a surprise lol.
I agree with everyone else though that he’s trying to just throw you off his trail so you won’t suspect anything. My fiance did that too because we were going on vacation for Valentine’s Day and he knew I wanted him to propose then yet kept telling me he’d do it in a year lol. It worked though because I actually was surprised when he proposed 🙂 Hopefully he proposes to you soon and manages to keep exactly when a secret for you!

Yay! How exciting 🙂 the anticipation must be killing you. Your post made me think about my proposal. My fiance proposed while we were in the tub lol sorry if its too much information, but he didn’t have a ring. He never really mentioned getting a ring or anything but told me it was official. Then three months later I walked into our room and he surprised me with my ring! It was small and beautiful. For our wedding he upgraded me to a bigger ring. I am so excited, only 2 more weeks to go!!

i remember finding a reciept from jareds back before FH proposed, he told me he bought something for his mother, which made sense because at the time it was around her birthday. turns out it was a receipt for one of the payments he made on the ring LOL
