I agree with the not getting your hopes up because if it’s not what you expected then you might get that disappointed feeling. I’m not saying you won’t love it or appreciate it but when you’re expecting something & get another you get that kind of bummed feeling but I’m pretty sure you’ll love what ever he gives you, after all he does know your taste in jewelry (Brownie point lol). Lots of luck sent your way =)

Unless you two have specifically talked about getting engaged in the near future, I wouldn’t get your hopes up! We often hear what we want to hear, regardless of whether or not that is what the other person is intending — especially in the case of wanting a proposal. I hope your anniversary goes well!

Did she want him to give it to you as a present from HIM, or did she want him to give it to you as a present from HER? If it’s the latter, she might be really offended that he insinuated that you wouldn’t like it or want it. In those situations (ex’s parents and even FI’s parents have gifted me some pretty gnarly stuff in the past) I find it is best to say “Wow, thanks for thinking of me!” and then hide it away somewhere. If it was supposed to be a gift from HIM, that’s a bit odd.

Anyway, hopefully he meant that he’s giving you a ring, but I wouldn’t get your hopes up too high. It doesn’t seem that strong of a hint and perhaps he really did just remember that conversation. He could be getting you something else you love!

(Of course saying that I know your hopes will be up anyway…I know how that goes with birthdays, holidays, anniversaries…just try not to be disappointed if it’s not!)
