I know my SO does not have the ring yet so i don’t know what it would be like to know it was in the house!! I would want that ring NOW!! I am hoping that it happens for you on (or around) your anniversary!!! Let us know what happens…stay strong…NO crying (if possible!!) Good luck!

He brought you to pick it up and still hasn’t given it to you?!  That’s downright cruel!!

I know that mine is in the house (I even can suspect where) and somedays, it’s all I can do not to look for it.  But, then I think of the proposal and how dissapointed both he and I will be if I spoil the surprise.

Hang in there!  I really think it will be worth it!

@Pretty, good luck, just because the anniversary might pass–and it might drive you crazy–let him do it in his own time.  If you rush him or get upset with him it might turn into an unhappy memory and no one wants that.  PLease be happy and patient in the knowledge that it is coming soon!

My MR and I ordered the ring in February and he got the ring in April and still no-go.  Our 7 year is this weekend, but I don’t think it is going to happen.  Actually, I am not sure he’ll ever propose at all.  Every time he gets my hopes up that we are moving forward he ends up getting cold feet about the whole idea of marriage, saying it is a prison and he’s more likely to leave me if we DO get married than if we just stay dating.  🙁

My SO has had the ring for months now.  It’s very hard to know that he has had it for so long but I am trying to be patient.  I know he probably has a plan that he has put some thought into and I don’t want to spoil it.  I think it is coming soon, but no idea when.  We are actually looking at venues this weekend (a little unorthodox, I know) but we don’t have a car and this weekend we are visiting my parents who have a car for us to use.  If it saves us the $75 rental fee I’m all for it so we are planning on visiting 6 venues this weekend.  SO said it was “silly” that we were waiting for a ring to start looking for this high demand date range (Fall 2012 in New England, no specific date in mind) and some of the places are already sold out.  Hang in there, I’m sure it will happen for both of us soon and I’m sure your SO has a great plan.

I would not be able to act normal. There’s no way.

Thank God my SO is so impatient and would never be able to wait too long (I don’t think). He got his dad Mets tickets for his birthday a month early, and wanted to tell him about them right away. The only that that stopped him was that he was too tired to drive over there (lol, lazy). So he ended up waiting maybe a week until he saw him. Still 3 weeks before the actual birthday. I hope he’s that anxious with giving me my ring (whenever he buys it, that is)!

@PrettySedity: YAY!  I’m mad that I’m just now reading this, LoL.  I’m so glad that you’re getting close to the engagement.  i don’t know how you’re handling it, girl.  If he had the ring & I knew it, I would be out of control.  Fiance had my ring for a bit over a month before he proposed, but I had NO idea.  I didn’t think it was coming for another two or three months. 

I hope you don’t have too much longer!  I’ll be waiting to read your proposal story!!!  :o)
