 1. How long have you and your SO been dating? November will be 1 year for us

 2. How old are both of you? He’s 33 and I’m 32

 3. How long have you been waiting? I’m not sure, I got back on the waiting list shortly after we became an official couple, but I knew I wasn’t ready to get married just then. But I guess about 5 months ago.

 4. Do you have a timeline (if so, what is it)? We feel that the 2 year mark is good for a proposal.

 5. Have you discussed or looked at rings with your SO? No, but his family has told me that there is a diamond ring(his grandmother’s) in the safe whenever he’s ready to pop the question

 6. What ring do you want? *Post a pic if you want* I’m not sure, I haven’t thought about what I’d want

1. How long have you and your SO been dating? Four years as of last week πŸ™‚

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

 3. How long have you been waiting? I have been mentally waiting for probably a year. We have made lots of progress on timelines though and now I am OFFICIALLY waiting πŸ™‚

 4. Do you have a timeline (if so, what is it)? Sometime by April 2017, so the next 6 months. AH!!

 5. Have you discussed or looked at rings with your SO? We have been ring shopping a few times. We went ring shopping on our 4 year anniversary and I found 2 “The Rings” and he will have the final say which one I get so there will be an element of surprise when he proposes.

 6. What ring do you want? *Post a pic if you want* The 2 styles I have picked out are both 18kt White Gold. One is a Solitare Diamond with a diamond wrapped band. The other is a Halo setting with an infinity diamond band. I CANT WAIT!!! πŸ™‚

2 years 

2. How old are you both?

I am 29, he is 32.

We started talking about it at the end of last year. We started talking about it seriously and ring shopping in July, so four months.

I hope it happens before New Year’s Day, but it will definitely be before my 30th birthday in February!

We sure have! I have one picked out and I am pretty sure that’s the one I’m getting, but it’s up to him in the end!

Emerald cut center stone, double halo, platinum setting, split shank pave band. It’s gorgeous and from Costco of all places. I freaking LOVE Costco, so it’s fitting! πŸ˜‰

lafemmeriante :  Also ‘officially’ waiting and first time posting! Yay!

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

5 years, 7 months (six in April).

2. How old are you both?

Both 19.

3. How long have you been waiting?

We had a proper talk about timelines and our future at the start of this month, so I guess I’ve been ‘officially’ waiting since then.

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

Somewhere in the next 1-2 years (depending on finances).

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

I am somewhat jewellery obsessed, so I have discussed rings at length. We have not looked at rings however, or really narrowed them down.

6.What ring do you want?

Definitely yellow gold, most likely vintage inspired. I would also LOVE an emerald (birth stone AND favourite colour).

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

3 years and 7 months

 2. How old are both of you?

both 23

 3. How long have you been waiting?

I’ve known he was the one after about 5 months of dating but we didn’t seriously discuss marriage until about a year into our relationship but we wanted to wait until we were both more financially stable. We started seriously looking at rings and discussing getting married around mid August of 2016

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

The ring is currently being designed but SO already knows when he will ask me and he told my best friend. She told me anytime between November 15 and January 2nd.

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

yes, we are currently having a ring designed and I helped give him lots of ideas of what I want

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

I’m getting a 2 carat Forever brilliant princess cut moissanite with 5 .06 carat round brilliant moissanite stones on each side of the Center stone. It’ll be like a 3/4 eternity band to allow for easy resizing if necessary.

We tried on ring sizes.

  • Wedding: September 2017

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

Less than a year. I knew I wanted to marry him on our third date. Previous to him I would have thought our timeline crazy, but it turns out it is true that “when you know, you know”. 

2. How old are both of you?

We are both 36.

3. How long have you been waiting?

I haven’t really been waiting at all. 2 weeks ago he asked if we could discuss timeline and we agreed we would be engaged by the spring. I know he started looking at rings right away.

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

We originally discussed an engagement by the spring. But based on further conversations And information I’ve gleaned, I expect it will happen well before that.

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

Only very general information. We are both happy to have him pick something out and surprise me.

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

Right now I want the ring he ordered which I know was delivered to him today… I’m dying to know what it looks like!
