Just a little over 2 years

 

2. How old are you both of you?

He’s in his mid 30s, I am in my late 20s

 

3. How long have you been waiting?

That’s hard to pinpoint exactly-I would guess about two months?

No real, concrete timeline. We have talked more in the abstract.

 

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

No. Although I told him which friend of mine he should ask haha. I like the complete surprise element.

 

6. What ring do you like?

I want a solitaire of some sort but have yet to pick out one in particular. I have a lot of work to do!

First post – hi guys! May this be a form of introduction:

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

Ten months. We’ve been best friends for three years.

2. How old are both of you?

25 – 23

3. How long have you been waiting?

I’m not really “waiting,” per se. We’re not getting married until our financial ducks are in a row.

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

2019 is our goal year. He’s studying to teach high school and we want him to have a job and be settled in first.

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

We’ve had fun little talks about rings, but we never looked, we’re so far from even touching that topic yet. He’s offered me flea market, candy, and Lantern Corps rings at various intervals, though.

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

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

3 years

 2. How old are both of you?

I am 25 and he is 38.

 3. How long have you been waiting?

I started to really expect a proposal around last fall. I moved in to his house in January and I was hoping he would do it before then. My birthday recently passed, and still no proposal..

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

Not set in stone. He really wants to start having kids though due to his age. And I told him I want to be married before that obviously. So I can only assume it’s before the year is up. We work together and I have a feeling he’s waiting on me to find another job before he does it. We have not come out as a couple at work yet.. So feeling very under pressure to move jobs.

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

No, but i’m sure he’s seen ideas on my Pinterest.

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

I love the square vintage style rings. Very pretty!

Alone in the office and a bit bored, I guess I’ll play. 

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

3 years on June 1st

2. How old are both of you?

I am 27 and he is 28 (and rapidly approaching 29)

3. How long have you been waiting?

Well, we went shopping just before Christmas and found something we both were happy with. So, 6 months?

 

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

Kind of. He said the question would be popped roughly before our anniversary (June 1) and I may have gotten some inside information that suggests it could be that exact day. I’m pretty sure he knows if it doesn’t happen before the end of summer, I won’t be happy. I mean, he set the deadline, not me. I’m not an ultimatum girl though, so it would just be a tough conversation at that point.

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

Yes!  After we decided on a style in December, he decided he wanted to get a stone after some more in depth research and then have the setting made, but knew he wasn’t quite ready to pull the trigger financially so I knew I had a bit of a wait ahead of me. Then I got cold feet about the ring so we went to look some more, about two months ago, and settled on the first one we picked. (Of course.)

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

This is what I tried on and LOVED. Elongated cushion (~1.5ct) on a knife edge band.

(ETA: this was a stone holder, the stone would obviously be set in the prongs, not sitting awkwardly like in the pic.)

Then I want double claw prongs like this. Swoon.

1) We’ve been dating for 1 year and 2 months

2) 20 and 21

3) We’ve been talking about it for several months and things are finally begining to roll!

4) I’m guessing he will propose sometime this summer but he isn’t giving me any hints.

5) Yes! We’ve looked at rings together and he knows what I like.

6) I’m hoping to get a delicate ring with sidestones. I have fairly small hands so I want something that is smaller.

  • Wedding: August 2016

1. We’ve been dating for 3 years

2. 20 and 21

3. I knew he was the one right from the beginning!  But I know he has the ring, so officially I’ve only been waiting for 2ish months.

4.  I’m thinking sometime this summer after he finds an internship.  Hopefully an August 2016 wedding…maybe December 2016

5. Of course! We’ve had MANY conversations about it.

6.  I have small hands so I’d like a delicate three stone ring. Maybe a half carat center with very small side stones.  I’m crazy about moissanite too!

1. How long have you and your SO been dating?  105 weeks. 🙂

2. How old are both of you? I’m 37 and he’s 33.

3. How long have you been waiting?  105 weeks….LOL

4. Do you have a timeline (if so, what is it)?  Our wedding is planned for May 29, 2016.  I hope to have my ring before I walk down the aisle to him on that day…lol

5. Have you discussed or looked at rings with your SO?  We chose and purchased the ring.  He just won’t give it to me.  It’s this whole thing about me being a control freak and he loving me not having any control over the proposal.
