Hello Ladies! A little back story on myself, Mr B and I have been dating 5 months (I know, doesn’t sound like much), but we’ve been best friends for 4 years and were roommates for 1.5 of those years. So we hit the fast forward button and went straight to the serious phase. He moved in with me after 1.5 months, and we’ve been talking marriage for the last couple of months. I know without a doubt there is no better match for me (and I’ve had two previous very serious, long term relationships including one previous engagement). I’ve never been so close in any way as I am with Mr B. If I had made a list of everything I need and want in a life partner, it would not have turned out a man as perfect as him.
So! I accidentally saw a text message about him and his mother going to look at rings this Saturday! We’ve looked at websites together and we decided on a solitaire in a simple white gold band (his idea, and it suites us both perfectly). He told me he is planning a trip to the family cabin for my birthday in mid September. Holy cow!! I’m so excited and don’t want to say anything about it or nag or be annoying about overtalking it b/c I want him to pull off a great proposal (i’m not good at being out of the loop. I like to know everything!) I don’t want him to know I saw the message about him shopping (it was an accident, but I don’t want to bring down his surprise) but I don’t know how to keep my cool for the next month and a half!
I guess I just wanted to share my excitement. I’m trying not to tell family and friends until it happens so it can be ‘legit’. But we’ve already picked a date, a venue, made a tentative guest list. We’ve talked about all of it, it’s just the waiting part now. ahhh! Is it my birthday yet???

Yay! If you’re anything like me, you’ll be finding it harder to wait now, but it will be a happier waiting now that you know it’s a sure thing. Good luck!

Congrats! It sounds SO similar to my story!
We’ve been together 4 months and we just finished designing a beautiful ring! Before we designed the ring, he was talking to me about taking me to this cabin up in the mountains in November for Thanksgiving for a “romantic getaway.”
Like the PP said, it’s harder waiting now that I know it’s so close! :3

Ha Ha, I feel for you. Me and Fiance had gone to look at rings so I could give him an idea of what I liked, no plan to actually buy a ring then, but when we found the perfect one, and it was the only one left, he put it on layaway. That was in May, from then on I kept wondering when he was going to do it, it was so hard, he told his mom about having a ring he was making payments to and everything. I pretty much knew when he was going to ask, but the waiting at that point was excruciating! Definately try your best not to talk about getting engaged too much around him, you don’t want him to decide to wait longer to try to “throw you off”.

Thanks y’all! He actually pulled out a diamond brochure from Diamonds Direct he got from their ‘diamond college’ info. So he went sometime last week to look around and price it out (eek! I didn’t think he’d looked yet!!). His mom his going with him for her opinion (hopefully she’ll say buy now!). He told me prices and keeps saying Christmas since they’re so pricey, but I’m really hoping it’s just to throw me off. I would have a great birthday whether it happens then or not, but it would definitely be a plus!!!
