I won’t know anything. He won’t even HINT at anything. But I don’t know that it is coming in the next 4-6 months. Then again, I have no clue at all.

All I know is that I will get to pick out my own ring when all is said and done.

@Anxiouspeanut:I got the feeling because we are usually together on weekends and he had a mystery appointment one day. I kind of thought he was off seeing his parent’s good friend who was a jeweler. 🙂 Last laugh is on me though because I suspected something in February and he proposed in March….I found out much later that he had already chatted with the jeweler back in December at a holiday party!

I know what the ring looks like I picked it out.  I told him my dad would like for him to ask for my hand.  I don’t however have a timeline.  It’s the one thing he refuses to even give me a hint about.  I however have my own timeline of when I think it might happen.  I’ll find it if I’m right or not some time next year.

@Anxiouspeanut: Thank you 🙂 he did so good. he knew what i would like. I’m not the type to wear a long of “bling” and I am not the skinniest girl, but have super long and thin fingers.  My ring is a 6 1/4.  Which is you saw me you would think is crazy.  But my Fiance did amazing.  I cried all Christmas day and could not stop staring at my ring.  I still can’t!

Well I am still in the waiting stage.  We did go shopping together though so I know what my ring looks like, it has been sized, it is sitting in a box in our bedroom and I know where it is, I dont know if he has asked my Dad, and I hope to get engaged in the next couple of months (hopefully – Ive already been waiting since December).  So yeah, I know a lot about it, but I dont know exactly when or how he will propose and Im sure Ill still be surprised and excited.

I don’t really know anything other than we went ring shopping and picked out a ring this past summer/fall. Although because he’s been laid off I’m not even sure if the ring will be purchased (unless he put it on layaway). So at this point I’m not sure when it’s coming (definitely this year or else 🙂 ) or if I will be getting the “chosen” ring. So I guess still a surprise. I’m not sure when although I know he will do it possibly in the next 4 months (that’s my deadline — 4 year anniversary).

@Anxiouspeanut: I feel the same way. I’m hoping it’s going to happen the end of this month – but I really am not sure if he has the ring yet. I don’t think he does – so it seems like it’s not going to happen! But at the same time he could just be really good at hiding it from me!

@Anxiouspeanut: That’s exactly how I feel even though he’s agreed with my timeline and basically agreed to getting married next May.  It’s like, Do you really understand all that goes into making a proposal and can you not leave it until the last possible second thereby delaying it even more?!

@Anxiouspeanut: We talked about a timeline. Also, when marriage was brought up again I presented him with a version of my dream ring. He had just gotten a new job, so I figured that there was no way he was going to propose before Christmas/New Year’s. Well, on the nights that I thought he was working late and while I was away for a baby shower, he was looking at rings. He also called my dad for permission around the same time. I honestly didn’t have a clue about the proposal until it happened. I was being hounded by some married friends of ours as to when we would get engaged. It got really annoying. I mentioned it on Christmas Eve and everyone looked at me stunned like I knew something, and I didn’t. So it was a complete surprise to me because I just gave him a timeline and a ring idea. He did the rest.

Hmm I don’t know… we don’t really have a timeline set out (just that he doesn’t want to be married until he finishes school which will be a couple years still) and we haven’t gone ring shopping, so if he’s planning a proposal it is a complete suprise.

I really hope he lets me give input on the ring styles though, I showed him some pictures of what I like and he says, “I think I’ll be doing that alone, when the time comes.” D’oh!!
