Sounds like he’s planning to only make you wait a few weeks! Try to beeeee patient haha (I know it’s easier said than done)

My fiancé had my ring for about two months before he proposed. I had no idea if he had it or not yet though!

penny1403 :  We just did the same thing! Ordered the ring together through BlueNile and then he took charge from there with me not seeing the ring in person until he proposed (this past Saturday…eeek!!).

He got the ring on January 18th and proposed on February 17th so pretty much exactly a month. I gave him a hard time for making me wait since I knew he had it haha. His respose was that he waited because he wanted to surprise me and not let me know when. It was worth the wait…I’m so happy. 🙂

Good luck lady!!!

I didn’t know it at the time, but he had it about 1 week before we went on a trip where he proposed. He said he had to get a rush delivery to get it on time. Thank god he did!

penny1403 :  we are in the same boat! We ordered my ring last Thursday through Bluenile and it was supposed to arrive today but we had fanily day holiday yesterday so it might be delayed.. I’m hoping it will happen this weekend (since we already waited 4 months due to a lost ring order). He wants to have an element of surprise since we ordered the ring together. Hope we both get some answers soon!!

3 days I think.  He got the ring on a Wednesday and proposed on the following Saturday.

I have no idea how long your boyfriend will take, OP.  From my group of friends it seems the average wait was around 2 months after the guy got the ring.

I’m going to count my blessings that my Fiance proposed without a ring and I only had to wait for the research/order time.  It arrived on a Friday and he put it on my finger as soon as I got home from work. 

I have a 40 minute commute and that was one long drive.  Stupid people wouldn’t get out of my way!

My ex husband walked home with the ring and immediately asked.  I didn’t even know he’d bought one!

It was actually a really lame proposal and I hope next time I get a little more romance/planning.  He also didn’t ask my parents’ permission which they’re still upset about 10 years later.

penny1403 :  It’s quite possible he’ll wait until that trip if you’ve expressed wanting your family to be around for it, but you never know. Men can be crazy hard to predict sometimes.

I waited two weeks. I felt like it would have been sooner but he was so nervous!
