I’d leave it alone. You expressed your feelings to him and he responded in a way that shows he understood what you were saying (even if it wasn’t the way you prefer that he respond). Also, with the ring: it’s a family ring so I wouldn’t worry that it’s the same one he was planning to propose with before, it’s not the ring he bought for his first girlfriend, that would be weird in my opinion.

I wouldn’t bring it up anymore.  It is definitely annoying that he toys with you about his ex and the 5.5 years he waited.  But the ring is only a place holder and it’s a family ring so I wouldn’t be too bothered about that; also, a lot of people propose on vacations.  It’s romantic and it’s in a place that’s “exotic”.

You seem really desperate for a proposal in general from this guy, so maybe just let him do it how he wants? Does this mean he changed his mind about not proposing until his mortgage is paid off?

I wouldn’t worry about it – didnt he tell you just a few weeks ago that this wouldn’t be for at least another year or two?

If you’re still with him by then, this conversation will be LONG forgotten.

Would you be going on the exact same vacation he had planned to propose to his ex? If not, I don’t understand why he can’t propose on a different vacation. I think that would be an amazing proposal.

I would just leave it alone. Let him do it his way. Someone once said to me that the girl gets to plan every detail the way she wants it for the wedding, the proposal is when the guy gets to do that. I agree – let him have this and just enjoy whatever he decides to do and be happy about the fact that you’ll be marrying him. I’m sure it’ll be lovely.
