My ring is in the house. Not just in the house. It’s on SO’s nightstand in plain view!
It’s an heirloom ring that we picked up from his mom on Sunday so I’ve already seen it and had to try it on to make sure it didn’t need to be resized. I just don’t think he realizes that once you have a ring, you should put it away so I’m not sneaking looks at it and trying it on when he’s not home! (I’ve actually been very good about this. I’ve only done it once and I refuse to let myself do it again.) Also, if I can see it sitting there, how is he going to surprise me with a proposal? I’ll know when it’s gone!
If he doesn’t move it by the weekend, should I say something?

I think I would have already said something by now, lol, so you are showing remarkable self-control. I wonder why he would put it in plain sight? I think you should go ahead and ask him what his intentions for the ring are and if he has a proposal timeline in mind.

I would tell him to hide it!!! That way it will be more of a surprise! I know my bf already has the ring and what it looks like.. (I picked it out) but its hidden at his parents house until he’s ready to propose.. And it’s making me really anxious! But it would be WAY harder of it was just sitting there in plain sight!! Let him know that it’s really hard for you to have to stare at it knowing that you can’t wear it!

@Sunfire: I actually put it there. When we got the ring home, I cleaned it and then put it on the coffee table in the living room for him to put it away later. The cat started batting the box around and knocked it on the floor so I put it on his nightstand to get it out of the way and he hasn’t moved it.
If he hasn’t moved it by the time I get home tonight, I’m going to ask him to put it away. It’s just way too hard to see it and know I can’t have it!

I’d just ask him to move it so you don’t go crazy, lol

I asked him last night to hide it. He looked at me and said “Ok. Why?” I told him because it’s torturing me to see it there every day. He gave me a look like I’m crazy and said he’d hide it.
Men really just don’t understand! He didn’t hide it before he went to work this morning so I’m hoping it will be gone by the time I get home.

MEN. Haha maybe you should just put it on and start walking around with it and see what he says!

haha I feel for you! There is a ring hidden somewhere in my apartment that I have thankfully been unable to find. I am usually really awesome at guessing hiding places, so when he finally proposes I will have to ask him where he managed to hide it so well! But if I DID know where it was, I would definitely be sneaking it out every day to slip it on! It’s funny how guys don’t understand what we go through sometimes.
