So back in April my boyfriend messaged my friend and asked her for my ring size and to keep it a surprise that he was going to propose to me and surprise me on our trip to Cancun which is next week! I obviously haven’t said anything to him and been super excited!! So this week my friend asked my boyfriend has he found a ring style yet? And my boyfriend told her that he hasn’t and he’s bad at this kinda thing. I told my there was a ring I’ve been looking at for awhile now and she sent the picture to him but he never replied. Just scared he’s not going to now even tho he did message my friend that he wanted too.

I would bet that she’s throwing you off the scent. He probably has the ring and she’s just telling you he never replied. Either way, don’t focus on it too much – try to relax and enjoy your vacation!

First, if this is something you are open to, take the pressure off of him picking out your ring. My husband proposed with a temporary ring he spent $20 and then took me shopping for my ring. That way I got EXACTLY what I wanted. Downside? When you get engaged everyone wants to see the ring right away and I didn’t have it. But it was worth it to me.

eh, I mean if he doesn’t in fact have the ring yet then he probably won’t have anything in a week. He may propose without a ring or with a stand-in, or he may be throwing you off the scent like a PP said.. but I would try not to obsess over the proposal as it can really ruin the trip if he doesn’t end up proposing. I know I ruined a perfectly good date or two because I thought he’d propose on them and was upset when he didn’t… don’t do that to an entire vacation!

Well, he might not. And that’s ok, right? Since you wouldn’t have even known anything about it if your friend didn’t open up her yap and spill the beans? It’s not like you and your boyfriend sat down, discussed it, and agreed it had to happen during your vacation and if it doesn’t you are out of there, right? It will be a great vacation just like any other and you were planning on if your friend had kept her mouth shut. Not sure what there is to be “scared” of here.
Sometimes plans change – you want to do it differently, you had major expenses you weren’t counting on, you don’t get everything you want together in the time span you hoped for, etc.
If you’re that concerned, then sit down with your boyfriend and have a conversation about what you both want and a timeframe you both see that happening in since it doesn’t seem like that conversation took place in the first place. And also maybe tell your friend she should learn discretion and when it is appropriate to keep her mouth shut.

Maybe he didn’t reply this time because he realized she’s a blabbermouth?
