That hint might have been a little heavy handed. Wink

 

I know when I was waiting, every occasion when Fiance would ask me what I wanted I’d have to compose myself so as not to either say “You know what I want” or “A ring”.

He told me early on that he felt and engagement ring shouldn’t be a gift on an occasion (i.e. birthday present, Christmas present, graduation present, etc) but something in and of itself.

Maybe you should send another e-mail with your “real” idea for a gift.

@jackndiane: I don’t know if that was the best idea. Did he say anything else about it?

Try and think of it this way, every time you drop a proposal hint, the proposal gets postponed.

My Fiance told me that every time I talked about getting engaged, he wanted to wait longer to propose because he wanted the proposal to be a surprise. If I’d been talking about it recently, it wasn’t a surprise.

I admit, i’m guilty of hinting too much too. He’ll ask me what I want and I saw “something shiny and sparkly or “something pretty”. I get heavy-handed with hints and i know it gets to him sometimes  but I just don’t know when to shut my mouth and let things go. Just don’t say anything about a ring and if he asks again, just tell him something else you’ve been wanting, like a purse or bracelet so he knows you aren’t pushing him into a ring.

lol My Fiance said I was dropping bombs of hints… but he didn’t mind cause he knew it was time and he wanted to marry me more than ever when he knew I was super serious about it as well… I think it was a cute hint… you may soon be in for a big surprise? =D
