@NickiBee:  Calling it a wave is not a lie!  There were at least fifteen, maybe twenty!  Yours will come soon enough though!  Hope your night is amazing!

I didn’t get a ring today either. But my SO did get me a gift card for a day at the spa and a gift card to go shopping with. So when the proposal does come, I know how I’m celebrating becoming a newly engaged woman. 🙂 I do know the ring is still being worked on, so I had my doubts it was coming today. I still hope it will come next week, but my SO said now it all depends on when the ring gets here.

Hang in there ladies:) I dont know you personally but I can tell you that its worth the wait! My Fiance hated holiday proposals but I insisted on Vday because its when my parents were engaged and the center stone from my ring was my moms. Keep your chin up V day is only 2 months away:)

I had hoped for one but I’m sure it wasn’t going to happen. The SO says it to cliche to propose on holidays. He’s very out of the box so I’m not sure what to expect from him.it worries me sometimes

I was not expecting to get engaged for Christmas bc it’s to cliche for my guy aparently. But  I did almost shit bricks when he handed me a Helzburg box. The box was garnet earings and I love them. I was glad he didn’t propose then though, it was a little anit-climactic. LOL My birthday is January 15th, and I overheard him telling someone he was going to propose then and I thought it was to fool me, so being a smart ass I said something. Turns out it was legit, he really was going to. So I don’t know if he will or not then!

I thought it might happen on Christmas eve or Christmas but wasn’t 100% convinced.  Either way, I’m a little (okay more than a little) upset becasue I know he has the ring already.  Maybe NYE Undecided

@laughs:  That story is so sweet. I feel horrible for your poor guy though; it seems like he did try and was excited about your gift and then realized that it was really just the wrong thing to give you. You sound like you have an amazing guy since he was willing to run out to Walgreens and get things to cheer you up. What a sweetie!

@LadySmurph:  My guy got me earrings too! Lab-created emeralds (my birthstone) with a small diamond on top. He did an amazing job picking them out and now I don’t want to wear anything else! I knew he was going to get me earrings though, since he asked for gift ideas and that was all I could come up with.

Personally, I knew it wouldn’t happen around Christmas. My sister got engaged Christmas Eve three years ago and my parents got engaged Christmas morning about 28 years ago. He wants to wait until January to propose so that we can just focus on the holidays and enjoying ourselves. I told him I just want to be engaged before we move in together (hopefully next summer). Either way, we both win.

I’m glad to be past Christmas (as sad as that is because I normally love Christmas). I knew deep down that he wasn’t going to propose but I couldn’t help but have a little hope that he had just been trying to throw me off so it would be a suprise. He got me a Coach wristlet that is really nice and a gift certificate for a mani/pedi. I tried not to look disapointed when I opened it but he knew what I really wanted so I think he knew I was less than thrilled. We are long distance right now and I think I am less stressed about it now that he has headed back home than I was a few days ago. He did say that he is going to come back up this weekend and try to stay through New Years Day (hopefully his overly demanding job doesn’t interfere)…so I’m holding out a little hope for something special then, though trying not to let myself hope too much!

At least some of you know  that a proposal is coming soon or that he has the ring. I certainly wish I had that much comfort. As 6 years approaches…so does the “self-respect” date for me. Hope he makes it happen soon!

No ring here! Had my hopes up till the very last second when he gave me that very small square box … and found the most beatiful pair of diamond earring I ever had. We discussed the ring matter afterwards and he told me he’s saving and gave me a sort of timeline. Happy with that too!
