I know he’s reached his saving goal for the ring. I don’t understand how he hasn’t pulled the trigger. If I was in his position it would burn a hole in my pocket so fast.

specialk6:  I have NO clue if my Girlfriend has one yet. However….she told me the other day….that she likes solitare rings for me…and it was like a lightening bolt hit me….HOW THE FCK DOES SHE KNOW THAT WORD?! Because let me tell you right now…..I don’t want a solitare, so I know I have never brought it up. If she gave me one it would be the most beautiful fcking ring in the whole damn universe. Haha. It just isn’t my choice.

Anyway, I think she’s been shopping. Haha. That’s all I have a hunch about. I have made it pretty clear that I’m a traditional girl (other than the gay part lol), I want to hear of no ring, see no ring and have her speak of no ring, until it is time. I want it to be a surprise. She knows what I like and that’s enough for me.

He has it because I picked it out & he bought it in front of me after the dream ring was completely out of stock everywhere & I had to make a new choic.


jared has very fast ring setting time frames, cause they do it in house… Bad for me cause I know it was ready for pick up the next day

My bf was the one to mention starting to ring shop but he didn’t want to go through the pain of going to a lot of jewelry stores so I made it easy on him. I went to a few stores alone just to get a feel for what I wanted. I ended up taking a few months to decide what I wanted, but I like surprises, so I sent him a good 10 rings or so from Etsy. That was back in September. I am 99.99% sure he has the ring. He knows I’m dying to know where he hides it, what ring he chose, etc. Everytime weddings or engagements come up he changes the subject or says things like “ya what kind of person wants to get married” and then looks at me smiling ear to ear!!!! Just the way he talks about marriage now I know he knows something I don’t. The other day he mentioned that “maybe the ring is out of state so I can next day ship it if I have to.” I think it’s in California (we live in St. Louis, MO) with his aunt. At least I won’t accidentally find it!

As I posted in another topic, the jewelry store where my Boyfriend or Best Friend and I went and ordered the ring together called me a couple of days ago to tell me that the ring is ready to be picked up. Argh. They were supposed to call my Boyfriend or Best Friend and not me! I didn’t tell my Boyfriend or Best Friend that the store called me because I know he wants me to be surprised. I guess it will still be somewhat surprising as I am not sure when he will actually go to the store to pick it up (it’s a little inconvenient to get to) and how long he’ll wait to actually propose (he said sometime before July 1), but I know for sure that the ring exists and is waiting to be picked up. Best wishes, waiting bees!

Fiance and I lived together and shared finances before we even started talking seriously about getting engaged. We picked it out together, ordered it together, I got home before him the day it arrived, and I even peeked at it before he got home. I thought it would kill the experience that there was no element of surprise, but boy was I wrong! Nervous energy the whole drive down to the water, and when he got down on one knee and officially proposed I still bawled like a baby. So yep! I knew the whole time.

specialk6:  Hmmm. I sent a few pix of the ring style, gem stones and colours I like to my Boyfriend or Best Friend. We even went to the jeweller early last yr to look at stones.

Recently, he’s admitted to visiting the jewellers and that the proposal won’t happen in May. But in June! Giant sigh. June is a few weeks away.

Anyway, I’m unsure if he’s picked up the ring and is currently in possession of it. Hmmmm………….

My ring was passed down to me from my (late) father, so he had to ask my mom for the ring.  They were VERY hush about it, and I didn’t even know when he was proposing because he pulled it out of his wallet, not a box!

I was in their presence a couple of times though when my mom would jokingly (or not) say “all you have to do is ask for the ring!!”

Yep because I bought it! Lol he’s eventually paying for it, but It was easier for me to buy it right then. Long story anyway, now I’m waiting.. This is it.

I know he has chosen one or at least chosen the style he is going for. I have NO idea if its been ordered.

With my exhusband I knew because we went shopping and choose it together.

I have no idea if he has it, but if he doesn’t yet he MUST be close! I’ve been bad, prodding lately and he said “let’s just say everything is progressing in a way that would make you happy”. OKAY! I’m cool with that :]

My boyfriend knows I do not deal well with surprises (understatement, haha), so he brought up conversations about engagement longgg before we thought about ring shopping.  We looked at rings and decided on one together, and I know that he’s placed the order (I was there with him when he did it). I don’t think he will tell me when it arrives, but I might figure it out because we live together haha.  I’m going to try soooo hard to relax and not be snoopy about any packages that arrive 😛

Engaged in December, my Fiance purchased the ring in August, we had already talked about getting married last July and even booked our venue and photographer before the ring was even bought! Lol! So I had to just wait patiently for my ring but at the same time, wedding plan. 🙂 July 29th is our date this year 🙂
