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

3.5 yrs

 2. How old are both of you?

30&31

 3. How long have you been waiting?

The past 6 months or so I’ve started seriously thinking about it

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

I wish! SO is incredibly awkward when it comes to relationship discussions, and will do almost anything to avoid them. I asked him 6months ago if he could have a think about where he sees us going (so we could talk about it without me springing it on him and him clamming up)- he agreed but then ‘forgot’ all about it. I reminded him a week ago that it is a discussion that I want to have and that I have concerns re our future if he can’t even talk to me. Waiting it out, but hopeful. Men are such babies.

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

Touchy subject. Last august he brought home a ring catalogue and asked me to circle what I liked- I was so excited!!! Now I think it was a delaying tactic. Turns out he never even went to look at rings. I don’t think it was meant to be hurtful, he has some thoughtless moments at times.

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

Something small, flat, that wont get caught on stuff at work. I saw a great one at Pandora that was just simple and pretty and like $100. I don’t care about the ring or the fancy wedding, I want the committment to being a team, choosing each other for life. 

 At this point I’m kind of giving up. i refuse to nag someone into marrying me. It is disappointing though.

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

Since February 2013

2. How old are both of you?

I’m 29; he’s 31.

3. How long have you been waiting?

We talked about commitment before getting a house and pup together last summer, so I knew it was in our future. But we only started talking about it in a concrete way this spring, and “officially” I would say I am only now starting to wait.

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

He mentioned it will be before our anniversary, so sometime before next February.

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

Yep! We started talking a few weeks ago, and we went to look in person yesterday. We are planning to buy the diamond online so now it is a matter of finalizing the right one. Hoping to get it set in person and planning to make some phone calls to determine feasibility tomorrow. Otherwise, just getting it set before we buy it.

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

A Tiffany style solitaire is the dream, but I’ll settle for any thin yellow gold, six prong setting. Looking at a Ritani!

He said this year, but I really think by summers over

We looked just over a year ago have been in and out a couple stores since, but just in the last few months I discovered moissanite and he’s shown a real interest and asking a lot of questions!

He said about a year from now he will get the ring. He wants to make sure he has the money to buy it outright.

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

A little over a year and a half.

2. How old are both of you?

Good ol’ 30!

3. How long have you been waiting?

A month or two but my family and friends have been waiting for over a year haha.

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

We live together and share everything already, so time doesn’t really matter to me. It feels like we’re already married – just have to make it official one day.

Both!

6. What ring do you want?

I’m having trouble deciding on one that will be on my finger for a lifetime. It’s either a princess (more classy) or cushion (very cute) with a thin band:

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

     2 and a half years

 

 2. How old are both of you?

30 – Me – 33 -Him 

 3. How long have you been waiting?

Since the first date. Haha. I think we have both always known this was it. He started to save, then we moved across the state, then bought a house, so it was pushed back.  

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

This year. I was with someone for 5 years. I’m not doing that again. You should know if you want to marry someone by the second year. 

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

We have looked, picked out and bought. I’m just waiting for him to do it! 

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

I’ll be getting a 1ct mossy cushion cut, in a white gold halo with diamonds 3/4s down the shank.

This is such an old thread, but woo to bringing it back! 

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

 2. How old are both of you? I’m 26 and he’s 25

 3. How long have you been waiting? I’d say seriously waiting just a few months, but I’ve been dreaming about it for years

 4. Do you have a timeline (if so, what is it)? To be engaged at some point in the first half of 2017 and get married in 2018

 5. Have you discussed or looked at rings with your SO? Yes, I sent him a word document with all my preferences (major loser haha!) But recently I tried on a more realistic and affordable ring, so I think he may just go for something like that! Or that exact one!
