We also live together. It took me awhile to get a ring. Does he know you want one? I think a lot of women so want the surprise and the romance that they don’t want to talk about how they really feel, and that is a mistake. Men are clueless, you know!

Something similar happened to me in April on our anniversary. When it was time to exchange gifts, Boyfriend or Best Friend gave me a jewellery box. I felt like my heart stopped and I was so nervous unpacking it… then I saw that it was a necklace.

To be honest, I was a tiny bit disappointed for maybe 30 seconds, but then I got over it as it really was a nice necklace, and I loved that he put so much effort into finding one he thought I would like. Now I absolutely love it and wear it pretty much every day.

Try not to be disappointed. Maybe your Boyfriend or Best Friend doesn’t want to propose on an anniversary as it might be too obvious? He bought you something he thought you would like, and that’s not really something to take as an insult 🙂

Just want to say i totally understand what your going through, i’ve got my 2 year anniversary next weekend and i too was hoping it would be on the card but i got the confirmation from my so last night that its not on the cards and more than this it wasn’t even a consideration, when i asked him he looked completely shocked because he didn’t realise that i was expecting it. we didn’t discuss it further but im going to have 2talk later and say explicitly what i want and my timelines since i just assumed he’d know and he is just clueless. i believe you so does love you but just needs you to tell him how you feel and then give him a chance to follow through. if you do this and then nothing happens by your date in mind then discuss it again.

It will happen, if your lives are about to stay together then you dont have to worry about it. I would get so nervious about The Ring, and we even hunted for the perfect ring. I too was upset about not getting one on christmas, he even told me before that he really wasnt going to purpose then. I got hurt and life went on with him purposing that april and enjoyed being engaged. Now that i am married its a growing relationship. We fight like cougars and Cyotes, but i have a big heart and i give in. After i lose my brain, hense crazy attitude.
