I’m so excited! No official engagement yet, but another step forward.
About a week ago, my SO and I discussed going ring shopping. We had been out with a couple who just got engaged and had gone to a jeweler together to pick the ring, and I asked him whether or not he wanted my help with looking for rings. We hadn’t talked specifics about it before, because he’s expressed wanting to be able to surprise me, but I wondered what he was thinking (I don’t really see him knowing what he’s looking for with jewelry). He said he’d actually been thinking about that, and that it would probably be a good idea to get me involved in the process.
So, he’s still keeping the actual proposal a secret/surprise, but we’re going to go ring shopping soon! I asked him today when he was thinking about going, and he said over break (we’re in grad school and go on winter break in 2 weeks). So, just a few more weeks, then I can look forward to picking my ring!!

Congrats!!!! My boy was very adamant about it being a surprise and me having no say in looking at rings which scared me a LOT….after some discussion he agreed we could go look at rings together, so hopefully we will have a shopping trip coming up soon, too!

Congrats! That sounds super exciting! I’m glad he decided to let you in the process, my guy is still stuck in his way, not even online browsing for me.

@picturemeurs: lol – I’m online browsing anyway – just because somehow it makes me feel less anxiety.

@Isilme: I totally know what you mean, I find myself looking at rings online thinking “Hmmm maybe this is the one he chose”
