We picked out my ring and bought it the same day. Had to wait 7 months to get it. 

Words of advice: don’t nag him about it.

My husband had the ring for about 2 months before he proposed. He may be planning something or trying to catch you off guard. Don’t nag him. You know the proposal is coming just let him do his thing. I loved the waiting stage.

It can be damn torture, I know, but when you put your expectations aside of when and how, you will become less impatient and anxious and more trusting and blissfully excited.
Rather than stressing about why your SO hasn’t proposed yet, think of how great you think they are and how happy you are that you get to marry that person! You must live in the now. πŸ™‚

embrace the waiting. I’m in the same boat (sort of, we have the stone but no ring). Anyway, I keep telling myself that waiting is half the fun-which it is! Once you’re engaged, that’s it. No more what ifs, or how will he, or when will he….try not to think about it too much and in the meantime keep yourself busy by venting here πŸ™‚

My Fiance had the ring for about 3 to 4 months before we asked me. He was planning something nice and it fell through and then he just did it randomly. I’m sure there is probably something that he will be planning and you just need to wait. No need to bring it up if you know he is going to do it!!

I had to wait a month, he needed time to plan a proposal. Totally worth it. Try to distract yourself

I can empathise. I think he had it about 2 months. Afterwards he told me he’d meant to do it sooner but we hadn’t had a free/quiet weekend as he’d hoped!

My Fiance told me he bought the ring just before new year. He didn’t propose until Mid-August.

He will get round to proposing, he just needs to plan everything first!
