You know him best, and if you don’t think he’s bluffing, he probably isn’t!  Hopefully he’ll get his act together and make it a point to talk to your Dad STAT! 

“I’m not waiting til my birthday (December) for this ring, I’ll kill you.  I can’t wait that long.”  <—I also hope that this lights a fire under his bum.

Men are so frustrating!  He could be trying to throw you off the scent but as ChicChick said you know him best so maybe not.  I think it’s good you made the comment about not wanting to wait until December, hopefully he’ll pull his finger out. Hugs.

My now husband did that to me too. We were going to Cuba, ON VALENTINES DAY!! and I knew he had the ring. I was expecting him to do it, but he also said “I still have to figure out how to ask your parents”. We left for Cuba and I was all bummed because he hadn’t asked them yet so obviously he wasnt proposing.

Well he’s a lil trickster because he ended up proposing that first night (Valentines Day)! He had apparantly asked my parents months ago but kept it a good secret so that even though I had assumed he would propose in Cuba, he tricked me out of thinking that and it ended up being a surprise.

I hope that your guy is just trying to throw you off too, but even if he doesnt propose, try to focus on havign an amazing time on the trip and remember that it’s just a matter of time, because he obviously wants to marry you if he has the ring 🙂

@Big Truck:  I agree with pinklemonade 12 — he has the ring so it just a matter of time now.  Many of us waiting bees are not even lucky enough to have that.  I don’t think my SO has even started saving for a ring yet.  I don’t know the guy, but my feeling is that he will propose on your trip.  He said “maybe” he will talk to your dad before Disney.  That isn’t ruling it out.  Don’t get bummed unless he says he won’t talk to him before Disney.  I think he just wants it to be somewhat of a surprise for you since you pretty much already know everything.  He has put a little doubt in your mind so it will be more exciting when it does happen at Disney.  As hard as it is, try to relax and just smile about the fact that your SO has bought you the ring that you wanted and that he will be giving it to you SOON.

@Big Truck: I know the feeling! 🙂

Hopefully as the other bees have said he is just trying to throw you off. If he’s not then try not to be too disapointed – you know it’s just around the corner. 

Easier said than done I know…and I should probably practice what I preach 🙂

Hopefully he does ask on your vacation. Waiting can be hell.

I waited FOREVER in between when we went to look at rings (Dec) and when he finally proposed (July) so I hear how frustrating it is!  I never thought my fiance would travel with the ring either and he had me VERY convinced that it wasn’t coming on vacation, but he did it then (the trickster waited until the end of vacation so I was really convinced it wasn’t coming).  I have my fingers crossed for you.  I know waiting is the worstttt.
