  1. How long have you and your SO been dating? For over 2 years (2.5 years by Halloween)

 2. How old are both of you? I’m 20, and he turns 19 next month.

 3. How long have you been waiting? DBF and I knew that we wanted to marry one another from the beginning. In fact, I have saved one of his replies from around the time we started dating. Even though I brought up marriage first, we were both thinking about it at the same time; DBF just didn’t want to scare me off before we were officially a couple. So technically speaking, we’ve been waiting this whole time.

 4. Do you have a timeline (if so, what is it)? Not really. I have run a few past DBF in the past. The one that keeps coming up would have us engaged within a year or two. DBF wants it to be a surprise, though, so unless he really disagrees with the timeline, he won’t say anything contrary. 

 5. Have you discussed or looked at rings with your SO? Although we’ve never gone ring shopping, DBF and I have discussed engagement rings a bit. I gave him a loose green sapphire to set into an engagement ring when he’s ready to propose. We agree that we’d want my stone to be earth-mined, and I’ve told him that I want a gold setting and to use a jewelry store that I love in a different part of our state.

 6. What ring do you want? I want my ring to have a yellow or rose gold setting. If we go for using the sapphire, I’d probably go for yellow, or a peachier 18k rose alloy. If we decided to use a diamond, I think we’d opt for a pinker rose alloy. I like a lot of different shapes, including pears, certain marquise stones, heart cuts, and ovals, like the sapphire I gave DBF.

GirlyGirl24:  

1. How long have you and your SO been dating? Our 6 year anniversary is next month!

 2. How old are both of you? I am 27, he is 30. 

 3. How long have you been waiting? I have only been “waiting” for about a month or so. I was not ready for marriage before and wanted to date a good long time. 

 4. Do you have a timeline (if so, what is it)? Not really a timeline, but he has already asked my dad, and we have both expressed a desire to get officially engaged soon.

 5. Have you discussed or looked at rings with your SO? We have discussed and looked at photos online. 

 6. What ring do you want? *Post a pic if you want* I want a vintage art deco ring, and I requested that he not spend more than $400. I like the ones with really unique settings and geometric designs. I told him I don’t care if it is a diamond, sapphire, aquamarine, etc. I’m mostly into the visual architecture of the setting.

I hope this formats right. I’m on my phone because I can’t easily use our computer. 

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

A year on November 23rd. ๐Ÿ™‚ 

 2. How old are both of you?

I am 34, he’s 33. 

 3. How long have you been waiting?

We both knew right away we are “the one” for each other, so it’s always been a real possibility. But we have been talking more seriously about it in the past few months. 

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

No real dates, but he told me the other day that, “your time is coming soon.” I had been talking to him about my best friend who is getting married this weekend. Yeeee! 

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

Yes. Though he won’t step foot in a jewelry store, we have looked at many rings online together and he knows what I want. 

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

I’ve found a lot of rings I like from these very boards but I can’t upload for some reason. I like smaller bands and eternity rings.

How long have you and your SO been dating? We’ve been dating for about 3 years.

How old are both of you? I’m 25 and he’s 24.

How long have you been waiting? I don’t really consider myself “waiting” in the strict sense of the word. I’m not engaged yet but definitely living my life and not pining for an engagement ring even though I hope for one when the time is right.

Do you have a timeline (if so, what is it)? Nope, there are actually a few practical (eg. end LDR) and professional goals my SO and I would like to accomplish before getting engaged so I would say that for us an engagement is a little bit farther away.

Have you discussed or looked at rings with your SO? Yes, we’ve discussed it a bit but not in-depth. Choosing my own ring is important to me.

What ring do you want? *Post a pic if you want* I like pretty, somewhat classic, and vintage-inspired settings. I also like quite large center stones.

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

4 years next month!

 2. How old are both of you?

I’ll be 29 in October and he turns 28 in a few days.

 3. How long have you been waiting?

Since Thanksgiving last year!

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

For no reason at all, I want to be married by the time I’m 30 and engaged by the time I’m 29. I can let it go if that things don’t land in that timeline because it feels kinda vain!

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

Yes! We found a ring in June.

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

The ring I found is a gorgeous vintage 5 stone diamond ring. I found a few other rings I liked, and he likes to think he’s being mysterious and will surprise me, but I’m pretty sure that’s the one. It felt like it was made for me! I’m not posting a pic because a) it’s one of a kind and I’m paranoid, and b) I think it’s bad luck. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I’ll post a pic when I get it!

  • Wedding: September 2015

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

20 months (over a year and a half)

 2. How old are both of you?

I’m 24, he’s 28

 3. How long have you been waiting?

He’s been saying he is going to marry me since the first week we started dating, so I started thinking about my ring long ago.  I thought he would propose shortly after one year of dating, but when I realized he was procrastinating, I had him come with me to get my ring size.  So, since then, it’s been almost 5 months.

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

He says  by the end of the year (which means between now and the end of the year). I prefer in the next month because I want to get married mid-September 2015… and at least a year of engagement is ideal for me.  I would have preferred a year and a half engagement, but I really want to get married in September.

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

I showed him some pictures long, long ago of what I like.  But he has a full description of what I want.

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

Antique/nature-inspired ring (with vines or leaves on it) and a purple  cushion spinel center stone (he bought the 1.68 ct I had my eye on). NO halo.  And if encrusted, white sapphires… no diamonds. Otherwise, I’ve given him quite a bit of freedom.  I never specified what I want for a wedding band.<br /><br />

My future step son told me my SO already has one of the rings, but he’s waiting for the other to propose.  It’s almost here!

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

Not exactly. I would like it before end of August…I think he is pushing for Fall(we had alot of expenses this Summer). We’ve discussed it so we shall see. 

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

Yup. He knows the exact ring I want. It was important to him that I love it, so he asked alot of questions and we picked one we both loved. Now he just needs to actually get it and give it to me!

6. What ring do you want? 

This beauty right here, with a 1ct center stone. *sigh* soon, my precious!

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

2 years

2. How old are both of you?

I’m 28, he is 32. 

 

3. How long have you been waiting?

He told me he couldn’t wait for me to be his wife after we’d been dating for about 3 months. I didn’t actually expect a quick proposal though. He really ramped up the marriage talk last September after an overseas trip. In October he got a really amazing but initially super stressful job that has the potential to set us up for life. I hoped he would propose last Christmas when we both had time off work but he didn’t, so I guess I’ve been waiting for about 8 months. 

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

I am not expecting a proposal before October because of his intense work/study situation at the moment. It should all be finished after then which means no more hours spent studying every night after long shifts and exams every second day. He’s more stressed now than I’ve ever seen him so I’m happy to wait until he can relax. 

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

Yes, he asked me to start looking last September. I had no idea what I wanted at first other than not wanting a diamond so he’s been following my ideas. He wants me to be absolutely certain and choose the ring myself. He will happily take me into a jewellery store if we happen to pass one and will often ask me to show him if I’m browsing online. I tried on the diamond equivalent of THE ring this past weekend to make sure I was settled on the shape and we both said Yes! We are risking an online moissanite purchase through Etsy because there is no where I know of in my state to try one on in person. <br />

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

Pear cut moissanite halo with a 1.5mm micropave band in platinum. I haven’t figured out how to upload pics!

Yes, we have been in shops to try on rings, and have decided on an Eidelprecious ring from Etsy
