Inspired by another thread, I am just wondering what our Bees have done to hint to their SO that they wanted them to pop the question!!
I left my favorite RHR all over the house for MONTHS… hoping he would pick it up and use it for the size. Ultimately that was too subtle and we ended up discussing marriage like adults. 🙂
what did you do?

Yes and no. 😉
(My guy started talking about long-term plans right away. It wasn’t quite “love at first sight,” but close.) When the time came that he asked me to plan a joint vacation so that we could fly home to meet his parents/family, I calmly informed him that I would not make the trip as his Girlfriend. That was that. He proposed within a few days, we shopped for a ring a few days later, and we traveled within a few weeks of that. That was a busy month, lol.

We talked about what styles of rings I liked and we went to the jeweler together to find out my ring size.
I have learned over the years that men don’t always pick up on hints (as blatant as we think we are) and its better to just be open and honest 🙂

Guys don’t get hints. They aren’t wired that way. If you want to get engaged TALK to him. Women tend to freak out when guys don’t pick up on the “hints”…however guys don’t pick up on them, ever.

No. We talked it about. He brought it up first and we were both on the same page. While shopping one day I stopped to get my ring sized and told him he size after. He proposed about a year later.

No hints. We both had several conversations about spending the rest of our lives together, so talking about engagement came naturally. He knew that I’m quite picky, so we looked at rings together. A year and a half later (lol), I was able to choose a ring that I loved, and he proposed shortly after.

No hints. I asked him what his idea of a timeline looked like and told him what mine was. He never would have picked up on hints.

No hints. I wasn’t willing to move in with him without a ring. It was too big of thing to do for me leaving the home I own without that commitment. Plus we had talked about a timeline before too.
Post # 9
Nope. He wanted to proposed and asked me about timeline. The important thing is, I agreed to a future with him but not the actual date when I’ll be ready for marriage. Nevertheless when the stone was in stock, we didn’t want to let that go so he bought it with a setting we agreed on. He kept it for months until I knew I was ready.

SO doesn’t even know how these things work. He’s bought me multiple rings as presents, but he didn’t remember my ring size and has been very blatant about figuring it out haha. As far as ring styles, I’ve shown him exactly what I want. There are no hints here…he can tell if something is “off” and I don’t want to talk about it, but that’s as perceptive as he gets.

I told him he could buy my Valentine’s day present at the jewellery store. This was after months of shopping together for the ring, though, so I don’t think that’s really what you asking about.

Well this wasn’t really a hint to propose because I knew when it was coming but this was after we had already designed my ring…
Fiance has a shirt that says “Give me the rock” and I would wear it around the house, or when he had it on, I would always tell him that was my favorite shirt. We were already engaged at this point but I was waiting for my custom ring to be on my finger (he had it, but I didn’t know that) and him being the smartass that he is, comes out wearing this shirt and he knew I was getting impatient. He gave me my ring a couple of days later!

Funny. lol I told my Fiance which ring I wanted. An artcarved Arlene in white gold, etc etc. Floral halo. And then he decided I should go try one on. So i did, and I liked it. But then we went and tried on different rings together, and there was a RG pear. And I was like… THIS THIS IS THE ONE. And I had been lusting after Barely Pink Moissys forever and he finally agreed to letting me get a moissy over a diamond, and I chose the pink one. Had to convince him I did not need or want the standard white diamond and would not feel like “less of a ring” if I got an obviously not diamond stone. (Men, too, have become victims of the diamond industry making people believe that is the only stone worthy)

We didn’t really hint- there just got to be a point where we needed to talk about it- so we talked freely about getting married- we had a date picked before he even officially asked.

I flooded his phone with pictures of rings that I liked 🙂
