Okay so as many of you know in October I found the receipt in my SO’s work pants for a ring that was due to be finished in the ‘last week of Jan’.
Well ever since then I have been DYING and today I looked up the Out of Town jeweller’s website (sneaky, I know) and saw that the ring designer is in town this Sunday (Jan 26).
I am SO hoping he is picking up the ring this Sunday, and am going to be watching him like a hawk. If he doesn’t I don’t think I can stand it, the anticipation is killing me!!!!

Less than one day away!! *fingers crossed*
But if he doesn’t ask tomorrow don’t freak out! He may want to plan a special proposal, men get nervous about things like this so be a tad bit patient 🙂

Okay I am screaming. Sunday has come and gone and nothing has happened. Well, except he got my hopes up and dashed them. A few hours ago, he asked if I wanted to go to lunch. He took me to the nicest restaurant, three course meal…wine… then NOTHING. I wanted to cry.
He’s gone off to play basketball for the rest of the day and the jeweller is closed.
THEN I was hoping he’d plan something for next weekend. We have nothing on, and the week after he goes away for 10 days, so it would be the perfect time to plan something.
BUT just before a friend asked us for dinner on Sunday and he said yes, so obviously he has not planned anything. Sunday is usually the day we spend together as the rest of the weekend is busy.
I’m losing hope bees. Please help.

@futurejhart: Maybe the receipt was never for you? Does he have a friend who is getting engaged or a family member? Maybe they asked him to take their receipt so nobody would see it?
Just spit balling

Just because he bought it doesn’t mean he is ready to give it to you quite yet. I understand your impatience. We bought a stone because I really loved it back in April, and it sat around my then boyfriend’s apartment for months. I loved seeing it, but I kept asking him to hide it, because I knew as long as I knew where it was, nothing awesome was coming. Then back in October he told me not to freak out but said he wanted to go look at settings. I happily obliged. My two favorites were going to take about 4 weeks to remake for my stone. The day after we looked at settings the stone mysteriously disappeared. You better believe I was super psyched four weeks later. But alas–nothing. Then I was super psyched for Thanksgiving. Nothing. Christmas? Nothing. Happened on December 30th. Even though he had the ring for several weeks. When it happens, it will be worth the wait. Give him the time to scheme.

@Payless: It was definitely for him because he’d signed all this documentation and filled in our address/ telephone number on the sheet along with the receipt!

@sjhanddab2014: Ugh thank you I think that may be what is happening!
It’s just so hard waiting and I never thought he’d be the type to sit on something like this. Usually when he FINALLY makes a decision (after 5.5 years) he goes ahead and does things quickly…

@futurejhart: I know it’s hard. But just think, in the long run, your marriage will be better because he took the time to make sure he was ready before getting into it. I was ready to get engaged a while ago, obviously, and it really did start to feel like it was never going to happen. (I actually left my now fiance for about 8 weeks about a year ago because I just didn’t see it happening any more. Obviously we got back together. Thank goodness!) But when it finally happened in December, I realized everything fell into place just as it should. We needed that time for him to be ready. Now we’re happy as clams and he’s so opinionated about wedding stuff, it’s adorable. Your moment will come. I promise. 🙂
