5 years 2 months

2. How old are both of you?

I’m turning 28 soon he’ll be turning 30!

3. How long have you been waiting?

at LEAST 2 years, if not the full 5! (i had a funny feeling and said to my best friend before we even started dating that I thought he was going to be my husband!)

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

serious conversations shall be had when our rental contract is up in September!

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

not as such, I’m in the UK and I dont think its normal here to discuss rings before the proposal, the idea of ring shopping beforehand is totally alien to me

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

I would love to see what he would choose for me!! but I have been looking at lots of rose gold with opals or pink morganite and pave diamonds 🙂 something sweet and magical with a pastel stone !

  • Wedding: A restaurant on the beach

1. How long have you and your SO been dating? 9 years! 

2. How old are both of you? 24 and 25 

3. How long have you been waiting? I’ve known for awhile that we were heading towards marriage but he caught me off guard last week when he told my sister a “secret” and then my aunt in London called to tell me she will help pick the dress lol. So I’ve been waiting for a week. 

4. Do you have a timeline (if so, what is it)? I want to be married before I get my medical lisence when I’m 29. Ideally I’d be engaged before moving to school in July. 

5. Have you discussed or looked at rings with your SO? I’ve been showing him rings for YEARS. But just recently I picked the perfect one

6. What ring do you want? *Post a pic if you want* I want the Van Cleef and Arpels Couture Solitaire. It’s a bit expensive ($8400) for a 0.3ctw center diamond but I love that it doesn’t scream wealth.

2. How old are both of you? I am 32, he is 29

3. How long have you been waiting? Pretty much since I got my promise ring on Valentine’s day last year (2014)

4. Do you have a timeline (if so, what is it)? We did, and the deadline is far past. 🙁

5. Have you discussed or looked at rings with your SO? Yes, and he knows exactly what I want. Initially I thought I wanted a round, but now I realized that I want the same as my promise ring, with a 1.25 ct marquise but with a diamond instead of a pink quartz!!!

  • Wedding: October 2016

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

Since October 2013

2. How old are both of you?

I’m 25 and he’s 23.

3. How long have you been waiting?

Since April.

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

We’ll be engaged by July 2016. He wants time to surprise me, and I hate surprises. This is our compromise 🙂

Yep, he told me to pick one out. Though he thinks jewelry is useless, so we’re having some discussions, haha.

I’ll probably end up with something else, though. Oh well. The important part is I get him, forever. As long as it doesn’t turn my skin green, I’ll live with it.

1) We’ve been together a year and a half 

2) I am about to be 28, and he is about to be 27 

3) I’ve been waiting for less than a month. We have talked about getting engaged on the future several months ago sporadically but just recently, his behavior and comments lead me to believe I am in the waiting game. 

4) I don’t personally have a timeline for a proposal. We have discussed we would like to be married within the next two years. 

5) Yes, we have discussed ring sizes, likes and dislikes, etc. He has shown me examples and I have given my opinion on the ones he has shown to me. 

6) I am not dead -set on thisring but I would like rose gold and either a morganite stone or something lightly colored. I am personally opposed to a diamond and he is aware Lol!

  • Wedding: July 2016

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

5 years

 2. How old are both of you?

I’m 25, he’s 26 soon to be 27

 3. How long have you been waiting?

I didn’t really start to catch the engagement bug until late last summer/early fall. Then on Christmas my boyfriend let it slip (after a few Xmas cocktails) that he had spoken with my dad about something important the day before. That was probably when I went into overdrive of “okay I’m ready-when is this happening”, so at least 6-8 months…although if you ask my bf he would probably say longer.

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

Although we’re not engaged quite yet, we are very open about the engagement (which I hope/think is happening within the next month). We both acknowledge that it is happening very soon, without actually saying it straight up, and we are planning for an October 2016 wedding.

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

This is the part of the engagement that holds zero mystery, I picked out my diamond, setting, and wedding band from James Allen a few months ago. I’ve not seen it in person yet but I do have a picture and even though I tried to refrain from looking at it in order to put a little surprise in the engagement I couldn’t resist. Now I look at it at least once a day while I (im)patiently wait to be engaged.
