I don’t post much, I must say I am more of a lurker than anything. I just wanted to check in and get some opinions!
The other day I was looking at jewellry online and came across a ring that I fell in love with immediately. My bf asked what I was surfing and I replied “I found my dream ring!” He came over and had a look and was suprised by how well priced it was and then asked if there a name for that style of ring – I had no clue so I told him I would save it to my favorites. I mentioned to him that they carried the same ring in varying price ranges depending on the size, etc after he mentioned how well priced it was and he seemed pretty interested.
So Bees, thoughts? Do you think somebody’s thinking of taking the next step soon? Did your bf do anything similar?

Absolutely! If not he would have run like a bat out of hell. 🙂
I wish my 1st experience had been that low key. We hadn’t ever talked about rings, just future intentions. Walking through the mall, he suddenly pushed me into a jewelery shop. Physically moved my body into the store. 🙂 I was so shocked and nervous my hands literally shook and I wasn’t able to try anything he wanted to see on. And I had never looked up rings before so I didn’t know what I liked. The next try was better. But I would have preferrred your situation. 🙂
Edit: What does your dream ring look like?

Happy to hear you think so, I thought he would be running the other way or just stay mute in the other room. haha
Woah! I would have been shaking too, but pretty excited! He sure went for the gusto hey?!
Well since I didnt know what they were called I did a bit of research and it is a Halo pave. I love the pave band, so sparkly – **drool**

That does sound like progress, and it’s great that he was very cool about it. It will make it easier for him when he’s ready, too!
My SO is okay with me e-mailing the pics, but when I mention going to a store to look at rings, he says “not today,” and if I do a walk by and stare into the window of a jewelry store he just keeps walking. LOL… I think it would be great if he took initiative and showed me he was ready by pushing me into a store! 🙂

DEFINITE progress. My SO would look the other way or just ignore me when i mentioned rings before. Then in November he slyly got me into a jewellery store and i tried on a few rings. I think he wants to choose the ring himself though and told me he is planning things.
So basically if they used to run away from the topic, and now seem interested, good sign!!

definite progress indeed. when they ask question it’s because they are making mental notes to make sure they get something you would love. i just posted my own thread about something super similar.
the other day i literally found “THE ONE” i told him about it and he asked me where to buy it and how much it was. he told me he thinks we found a winner, lol. so i’m 100% positive he’ll be buying that ring because when i told him i had tears in my eyes because he liked it, he was like, well then…that’s the one 😀 OOOOOH I LOVE PROGRESS DONT YOU! 🙂
