He didn’t πŸ™‚

Though I made him wait to purchase the ring because there were more urgent/important expenses I wanted to have enough money for. Tuition is a bummer πŸ™

He had the ring for about a week before he proposed. He waited so he could propose to me on my birthday.

Well I know he was still waiting for the right moment… I think it all just came together very quickly when he finally planned the big moment although he had the ring for atleast a few months.

He has had the ring for 2 months. The reason he has told me(we designed the ring together so i know there will be a proposal) is thatbhe is in the middle of planning something thathe isnt fully in control of! 


I cant figure out what it could possibly be!

@strawbs:  That’s the reason my SO is making me wait. We have my ring and his watch but he wants to wait until our trip to Vegas (yay for a free trip!!) because, being from NZ, it’s not often that we get to go to the US and he wants to make as memorable as he can.

My FH planned an elaborate surprise trip and proposed while horseback riding on the beach.  So I’m sure that took some time to work out the details.

He didn’t.  We were privately engaged before we went ring shopping, and he “re-proposed” the minute he brought it home from the jeweler.  Why wait?!

He did bring home a bottle of rose veuve along with my ring, so now I have a tendency to order a sparkling rose at dinner if it’s on the wine list!

He didn’t. Actually, he didn’t propose in the traditional sense. We discussed getting married first and then shopped for rings. I had to pick it up from the jeweler since he was at work. When he got home he said “why aren’t you wearing your ring?” so I put it on. Tongue Out

I’m totally fine with it. I had a “traditional” proposal the first time I got married. Doing everything different this time around. πŸ™‚

He knows, that i know, that he has the ring… now i wait.

I figure he will be wait till chirstmas. He knows I adore christmas, and we are going to thailand in january…….

I think the reason he is waiting is so it will be a suprise – cause i know he has the ring… he is going wait longer to catch me off gaurd.

DREAD the waiting game πŸ™
