2 weeks! It was supposed to be 2 months, but after our parents knew and I knew, he didn’t want to wait any longer 🙂

The silence is tough. I finally got out of him that the proposal wouldn’t be over the holidays because he wanted to plan something big. Then he changed his mind on NYE and proposed a few hours later!

Easier said than done, but try not to obsess and enjoy your time together.

He’s had the ring for 1 1/2 years and I’m still waiting. He did tell me that he wants me too graduate before proposing, so June is the earliest. I’m going to push through this time at school and focus on getting my ring the minute I graduate. 🙂

DH surprised me by proposing the next night after we bought the ring together! So it really could be any time 🙂

My hubs had the ring for about 2 weeks before proposing. It was a surprise though as I didn’t know he had the ring.

A couple of days.. He had the ring custom made and picked it up just before a camping trip where he proposed 🙂

DH had the ring a month before he proposed (I didn’t know at the time that he had it).

beep54 :  SO and I purchased my ring at the beginning of December.  Currently, it’s living somewhere in our apartment but it will be probably June or July before we are engaged.  We have a bit of a family issue right now so we decided it would be best to wait a few months before we officially get engaged  In the meantime though, we’ve been moving forward with planning and already have our date, venue, and honeymoon plans ready to go!

He bought the ring and proposed a little less than a month later.

Without my knowledge of any of it, my Fiance ordered the ring to be shipped to his parents’ house, where we were staying for the holidays. It arrived the day that we flew in, 2 days before Christmas Eve, and he was able to sneak away and look at it the next evening. He proposed Christmas Eve morning! So he really had it in his posession for ~12 hours before proposing. But to be fair, he ordered it with that timing in mind, because he knew the date he was planning to propose and he didn’t want it to get there long before we did. 

Good luck waiting bee, hopefully the ring burns a hole in his pocket and he proposes soon!
