I’ve looked online and I’ve shown him a few that I really like and he knows my ring size.

I’m bored, might as well.

1. How long have you and your SO been dating? -Been about 8.5 years!

2. How old are both of you? -26, but my birthday is next week.

3. How long have you been waiting? -Just recently, probably the last couple of months. Had some things to work on before I felt ready and now I do, just waiting on him! He’s an overthinker and has never had a marriage to “look up to” so to speak.

4. Do you have a timeline (if so, what is it)? -Not really. I’d like to be married next year though.

5. Have you discussed or looked at rings with your SO? -Discussed, yeah. He has a picture of the one I want and knows what I DON’T want (white gold, diamond, blue sapphire, weird shapes).

6. What ring do you want? *Post a pic if you want* Rose gold, morganite, halo, filigree. I do prefer oval on my hand slightly more than the round but round doesn’t look bad and I have a lady boner for this ring.

  • Wedding: August 2015

Hi all!

I am new to the bee, long time browser, and finally decided to join and start posting!

 

1. How long have you and your SO been dating?

SO and I have been together for about 3 1/2 years. We were long distance until January 2014, so it almost feels like we’ve started over in the past year or so πŸ™‚

2. How old are both of you?

He is 25 and I will be 25 next month!

3. How long have you been waiting?

Officially “waiting” for about 6 months or so.

4. Do you have a timeline (if so, what is it)?

SO is military and we will be relocating in July/August, so his plan has been to get engaged/elope before then! 

5. Have you discussed or looked at rings with your SO?

Yes, we’ve done lots of looking and he knows exactly what I want!

6. What ring do you want? *Post a pic if you want*

I am obsessed with elongated cushion cut solitaires and would love a 1-1.5ct claw prong, cathedral setting with pave diamonds. I just discovered a beautiful halo today, so I may have a new love in the running.

Yay, surveys are fun! πŸ™‚

1. How long have you and your SO been dating? 5 1/2 years

2. How old are both of you? I am 24 and he is 25 going on 26

3. How long have you been waiting?  About a year ‘officially’ but I started feeling ready a couple years ago

4. Do you have a timeline (if so, what is it)? We have an agreed upon wedding date in fall 2019 which is our 10 year anniversary. He knows I want to be engaged for 18months – 2 years. Last I heard he says he hopes it’ll be this year, if he can find a ring/appropriate proposal event

5. Have you discussed or looked at rings with your SO? He’s been such a good sport with looking at rings I show him online. He’s willing to take me ring shopping if I want to see what styles I like, but I really just want him to pick one that reminds him of me. I trust he knows my style well enough by now!

6. What ring do you want? *Post a pic if you want* I’m really in love with asscher and emerald cuts, something like this:

asscher with pave band

But I’d love maybe some sapphire accents thrown in there, it’s my birthstone and SO wants a sapphire on his band πŸ™‚

1. How long have you and your SO been dating? Just over 8 years!

2. How old are both of you? We’re both 22

3. How long have you been waiting? I’ve been actually wanting/waiting for a proposal for the last 4 months or so.

4. Do you have a timeline (if so, what is it)? Whenever he gets his post-grad school job offer…so it could be about 12 months away or a 18 months away…ugh! 

5. Have you discussed or looked at rings with your SO? I’m pretty particular about what I want. So I’ve looked at what I want and have shared some things with him that I’ve liked online, we’ve never looked at rings or anything together.

6. What ring do you want? *Post a pic if you want* I really want rose gold, with an Amora Gem. 

This is my dream wedding set (Eloise e-ring from RosadosBox on etsy) but I know it’s too thin for pave and isn’t practical. But I love drooling over it!il_570xN.730540390_f2wv

1. How long have you and your SO been dating? Just shy of two years.

2. How old are both of you?  We are both 23.

3. How long have you been waiting? Unofficially, about 6 months.

4. Do you have a timeline (if so, what is it)? Yes, a rough time line.  Hoping to be engaged by the end of this year (at the latest) and married in the second half of 2016.

5. Have you discussed or looked at rings with your SO? Yes!  We went on Sunday to get my finger sized and to try on a few rings to get a feel for what looked nice on my finger.  I found that I actually like the look of a diamond halo around a blue sapphire even though I always thought halo’s weren’t my thing.

6. What ring do you want? I’m in love with blue Sapphires and have tried on a couple of natural ceylon Sapphires with a diamond halo.  But i’ll be happy with any simple ring (i’m not a super flashy person and am looking forward to having a ring I can wear daily).

1). 5 months. Though I was lurking on here when I was still with my ex, about a year ago.

2). I am 28 and he is 31. We’re young ‘uns, no matter how much he protests and calls himself an “old man”.

3). Not in waiting mode yet! I don’t hit “waiting mode” until after the first year, at the earliest.

4). 3 years is the longest I would be willing to wait, if no unusual circustances were to interfere.

5). The only discussion we’ve had is that I asked him if he would like a ring from me someday, which he said he would be cool with. He also asked the same of me, which I am obviously cool with. 8)

6). Oh, I just recently saw some rings I liked! It was a big “ah-ha” moment because I’ve looked at rings before and never been as excited as I was about these…mostly because of the colors. It is a London blue topaz with flanking diamonds and/or aquamarine gemstones (my birthstone). I think I would prefer white gold.

  • Wedding: October 2016 - Bloch Chapel

1. How long have you and your SO been dating? Dating two years in July, friends for five-plus.

2. How old are both of you? I’m 27, he’s 24.

3. How long have you been waiting? Probably about a year. We talked about marriage very early on, however–I’d say within the first six months.

4. Do you have a timeline (if so, what is it)? I’d love to aim for an October 2016 wedding. I want to have a year-long engagement at least, however. I’ve been told it will happen sometime this year.

5. Have you discussed or looked at rings with your SO? We’ve looked quite a bit online. I can’t seem to get him to a store to try rings on in person. =/

6. What ring do you want? I either want a vintage ring with a ruby (oval cut, set in yellow gold with some diamond accents, maybe?), or if he goes for a new ring, a radiant- or oval- cut diamond in a rose gold band with some pave diamond accents down the side. Neither of us are white gold fans, and we both agree a petite band would best suit my small hands. I actually don’t want a center stone larger than 1 ct. I was engaged previously and had a huge ring–it just wasn’t me. My ex bought the ring mostly for himself as a status symbol–he was extremely materialistic and I just don’t want anything that reminds me of that.

1. How long have you and your SO been dating?

Just over two years.

2. How old are both of you?

I’m 28, he’s 33.

3. How long have you been waiting?

Officially, a couple of months, although I think each of us knew that the other was “the one” long before that.  It’s just that for a long time we didn’t even know when we were going to be able to live in the same state, and he wanted to wait until we were no longer long-distance before getting engaged.  So I guess you could say I’ve been “waiting” for nearly two years, but a proposal isn’t something I’ve been realistically expecting up until now.

4. Do you have a timeline (if so, what is it)?

Not that we’ve discussed, no.  I’m hoping it will be this year.

5. Have you discussed or looked at rings with your SO?

Not yet.

6. What ring do you want? *Post a pic if you want*

I don’t have one specific ring in mind, and I’m trying to keep an open mind because I want to let him pick out the ring. πŸ™‚  However, I’m leaning toward colored gemstones (particularly ruby, sapphire, and topaz… maybe aquamarine) and solitaires with fancy bands.
