Ok, bees, I know I just posted but I had to share…
My SO ordered the ring. At first he said it should be shipped on December 11 but just now he shared – they are delaying it till December 16! He ordered on James Allen…not sure if it’s a common thing ot not.. hopefully it won’t take long after that.
I am really hoping for a Xmas proposal we both don’t like surprises but he still won’t tell me when it will happen – this year or early next year.))
I really want to enjoy last months of being a gf but it’s so hard…How are you coping??

1. Conventional wisdom seems to dictate that you should avoid holiday proposals, JUST IN CASE your relationship doesn’t last and it ends up ruining all your Christmases forever. Happened to someone on here
2. If you don’t like surprises and it’s giving you actual anxiety, then your bf needs to respect your needs. Decide if you want to forgo the “surprise” element and have a serious talk about your bf re knowing when you will receive the ring. If he really wants to plan something grand and special, work out a compromise.
3. I only had to “wait” half a day to receive the ring, since my FH proposed ASAP. He contemplated waiting a week for a more romantic opportunity, but didn’t want to deprive me of an extra week of showing off the ring and calling him my fiance. Bear in mind that your Boyfriend or Best Friend (FH, really) is all in, the ring is just a piece of jewelry. You’re just as engaged now as you will be once you have the ring. Think of it as your juicy little secret. It was kind of fun for me to be cagey about our upcoming “formal” engagement.
