Hi I am new here, joined today. Hello everyone.
My boyfriend and I were both previously married. We both live together.
Over a month ago while Christmas shopping, he and I went into a large chain Jewelry Store in the mall, and he asked me a random question…. “What did the diamond ring look like, that you had from your 1st marriage?” I pointed to a few that were similar, and in all honesty I hated my diamond ring. It was small, we didn’t have much money and it was yellow gold. I showed him one close to it.
He then asked me what would you like to have if you were to get engaged again? The salesman now getting anxious because he thinks he can score a sale, started showing me all the rings I did want or like. Low and behold, my wonderful man, put a 1 carat, white gold, quad princess cut on layaway, and got a terrific sale on it also. One week ago, he picked it up from the store off of layaway and told me he had it!! OMG!! You do? I wanted to see it, have it, hold it, wear it!! He put it in his safe, that I do not have the combination to.
This whole thing is killing me slowly. I know that when the moment is right he’ll probably ask me. And it will be a moment I will cherish forever. This is definitely a man I want to spend the rest of my life with no doubt. I now just have to wait for his moment, place and time, to make it official…… How do I just be patient???

Congrats, lucky girl! While none of us are experts on patience, there are a lot of popular passtimes we all share. The gym is a big one! Crafts, hobbies, reading, and spending time with friends are other popular ones. Basically the thing you need to do is keep your mind off the fact that your guy has a sparkly ring hidden in the house somewhere! It’s definitely difficult, but it sounds like you won’t have to do it for too long!

I know my boyfriend has the ring too! I have no idea where it is hidden, or if it is even in the house at all, but I know he bought one! It’s making me crazy! I have no idea when or where he will propose. I know it can be agonizing, but just know you’re not alone! I hope you won’t be waiting long and we see you back soon with some good news and some ring pics!!

@BuelowMrsBuelow: Congratulations! I waited for 6 months after I found out my fiance had purchased my ring before I had it on my greedy little finger. All I can say is that i know its HARD but dont push, I did and I still wonder if I pressured him. I know he wants this too but you dont want that possiblity that he didnt do it the way he wanted to becuase you were impatiant, I have that.

And this is why I don’t want to know when SO picks up the ring. Christmas was always torture for me and this will be even worse.
Hang in there and don’t try and figure out the combo!! (like I would probably do if I knew it was in there)
