Hello fellow bees,
So recently my bf gave me a timeline of 2-3 years for an engagement. Normally one would think that with the timeline being so far away that he would stop mentioning rings and wedding stuff, well no no, not my guy! In fact he brought it up even more!!
He started showing me pictures online and asked my opinion on certain ones and had even said that he frequently looks at rings online while he is at work. Then he decides to tell me to go try on rings to see how certain bands feel and then report back to him. !!!!!! WTH?!?!
So eventually I get a little fed up and tell him that it really gets me down when he talks about it because I know its not happening any time soon. I even gave him the guy comparison of how I feel. Then he tells me that….wait for it…..HE HAS STARTED THE RING FUND!!!!!!!!
Im so excited and happy that he is finally taking the necessary steps rather than just teasing me with it. I know that it could still be a while before anything happens but right now Im just so happy .
So I just needed to get that out since I dont have a lot of close people in my life to share my excitement with. Thanks for reading!

@MsMelodyBee: we are looking at a three stone ring. i have tried on a solitaire and it just doesnt look right on me haha.
It is very exciting and now it feels like its actually happening and not just a fantasy that I have. I guess now the second phase stressing starts lol.

@sparky263: It’s just so exciting! I actually love 3-stone rings but they look awkward on me, it’s funny how that happens. So happy for you! Whoo!

Ohhh I remember these days! It’s so exciting but nerve racking at the same time! So happy for you! Just try to be patient with him as he works out the perfect ring and perfect timing. I know it’s hard because you just want that darn thing on your finger, but this is his opportunity to do something wonderful for you 🙂 Congratulations!

Congrats! I’ve known for awhile now that SO has the ring fund and now it’s almost complete – the waiting stress doesn’t go away, but it does make it more real! :o)
