First, welcome to the hive!!! 
Second, if you want to be engaged before you move in together, then make sure you don’t move in together until it happens. Stick to your guns. Be open and upfront about your expectations. You do not want to be here 2 years from now wondering why your guy is comfortable and you still don’t have a ring.

I completely agree with Miss Tattoo.

Dont move in without a ring if it is that important to you.  TRUST ME.

Guys get real comfortable real fast, even if they have the best intentions.

Welcome- definitely don’t move without the ring since it is that important to you. Some men do get comfortable and get the “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it mentality” so you would just be saving yourself some frustration later.

I hope he gets into gear soon with a surprise so you both can move forward in your relationship.

@kris123: If you want to go ring shopping with him, maybe bring it up?

I know exactly how you feel. The wait sometimes is just TOO long and it makes you more want the wait to be over more than actually getting a surprise.

You and I are in the exact same situation! We pretty much have a house and he wants me to move in with him asap but he knows I won’t move in without a ring. To make a long story short, he somehow told me that he wanted to do the same thing–propose the day we move in, however he now cannot have a ring by the day we would get the house bc they wanted more for a down payment. So here I will be, waiting, waiting, waiting, while he gets to live in an awesome house! Why can’t boys plan ahead and do these things earlier? I can deal with living apart for a few months of the engagement! UGGGHHH!!! I feel your pain, girl.  I hope your Boyfriend or Best Friend does it soon.  I will say, my Boyfriend or Best Friend and I have finally gone ring shopping, and while it was nice to be able to pick out the ring, I feel like some of the surprise may have been lost, so maybe your man is going to leave you more in the dark and surprise you. Fingers crossed!!!!
