For all I know my proposal could still be months (or more?) off, but most signs are pointing to sooner rather than later. We are so close to having a house, and I’m not moving in until he has proposed. We have been talking much MUCH more about proposals lately (sorry Christmas Challenge, but that’s what happens when you are getting a HOUSE!) and he has mentioned several times that we are only months away. I am just wondering if he has started ring shopping yet, and if so, if he has gotten any input of my ideas. He mentioned the other day that after the down payment is paid, he will still have some $$ left but will only need a month or 2 more to save. Then he said something about 30 days–could that be the time needed to order a ring? Has he been doing research?? Let me rewind:
I have told him in the past, several times, that when he goes to ring shop he needs to take my sister with him. She knows the styles I like, my size, what i don’t want, etc. I have also told him (and she knows, as well) that I have a secret stash of ring pictures hidden in my room. Not too long ago I tried on rings at a store and they wrote down the ring info of a business card. I gave that card to my sister and told her if he ever approaches her, there is a good place to start.
My worry is that he is not going to ask my sister for help or that he won’t ask me/use my ring pics. Now, I’m sure I will love anything he picks out, but at the same time, he got me my birthstone ring for my bday, and while I love it, it is not something I would have picked out for myself. When it comes to the E-Ring, something you will be looking at every day for the rest of your life, I really would love for it to be something i love! I hope this isn’t making me sound greedy–the style I like is nothing extravagant and he has plenty of room to style it the way he likes.
Is anyone else worried about this? I have asked my sister a few times if he has asked her, but I secretly don’t want to know–we both (SO and I) want it to be a surprise, and by him telling me it’s going to be soon it has already given away some of the surprise. I don’t know if I want to just email him ring pictures, either, as that may seem to forward. I know he wants to do this on his own as much as he can, but at the same time I want him to know what I want. Any suggestions??
