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

Since February 2010

 2. How old are both of you?

I am 23, he is 25.

 3. How long have you been waiting?

About 8 months. Started feeling the yearning when we got to four years together.

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

Well I thought there would be a proposal when we moved back to Chicago in May but I am still waiting…we just rented a house so hopefully once he’s settled in he’ll start doing something.

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

Discussed, yes. Looked at, heck no.

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

A claddaugh ring with a shiny fake diamond, maybe moissanite. I’d rather he spend the money on a vacation.

  • Wedding: March 2016 - Surfer\'s Beach, Grand Cayman

1. How long have you and your SO been dating? 1.5 Years

2. How old are both of you? 31 and 32

3. How long have you been waiting? I’ve felt ready to get engaged for a few months but I’m enjoying where we are at and not feeling too itchy yet lol.

4. Do you have a timeline (if so, what is it)? We talked about it recently and he said he sees engagement within the next year and it’s the next step for us. I would love it to be closer to 6 months but we just bought a house and there’s a lot of expenses involved in that so I know saving up for a ring might take a while. 

5. Have you discussed or looked at rings with your SO? Not really, I’ve mentioned what I like but no serious talks. He’s very big on surprises so I doubt he would want to go look together, but to be honest I don’t think he’s even thought about it yet. 

6. What ring do you want? An oval diamond (.75 to 1 carat) on a thin pave band is my dream ring

5. Have you discussed or looked at rings with your SO? I told him I don’t want a ring but he told me I have to get one so I sent him 5 pictures of things I liked

6. What ring do you want? I like cluster rings, I am not super picky though. I just want something cheap so that he doesn’t get mad when I get it dirty/don’t wear it all the time.

1. How long have you and your SO been dating? about 2 yrs

 2. How old are both of you? I’m 25, he’s 36

 3. How long have you been waiting? I don’t know really when I started “waiting” but I’m more so, “eagerly looking forward to”

 4. Do you have a timeline (if so, what is it)? No timeline! But I think he wants to sooner than later (which is fine with me!)

 5. Have you discussed or looked at rings with your SO? Nope! I know he would want to get me something I like, but for it to be surprise too. So I’m sure he will utilize the help of my friends 🙂

GirlyGirl24:  What a clever idea!! Thanks for starting the thread!

 1. How long have you and your SO been dating?  A little over 2 years 

 2. How old are both of you? I’m 25, he’ll be 29 in October

 3. How long have you been waiting? We both “knew” from day 1 but seriously waiting for about 2 months now.

 4. Do you have a timeline (if so, what is it)? He promised me we’ll be married within two years, we want most likely a summer wedding and a year engagement so most likely within the year. *** Hopefully sooner, considering I found out he’s asked my dad and has a ring- maybe. Confusing story! And he was going to propose back in June and still hasn’t. Hmmm… he doesn’t know I know any of this so the bee is definitely my outlet! * Thanks fellow bees!! *

 5. Have you discussed or looked at rings with your SO? We’ve “pinterest peeked” but haven’t officially shopped. He said he wants to pick it out. 

 6. What ring do you want? *Post a pic if you want* We’ve both said we like this one but he’s also mentioned a floating diamond and the enhanser kind of twisiting. Not sure if I’m explaining that very well. But yea, dream ring below.

  • Wedding: April 2016

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

We have been together for a little over two years!

 2. How old are both of you?

I am 21, he is 23.

 3. How long have you been waiting?

I’ve been seriously waiting for a few months, since we moved in together, but we began discussing marraige on a more serious level a year ago.

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

He tells me he is going to propose ‘very soon’ and that I should be ‘patient’ (its not my forte) so i’m hoping within the next 4-6 weeks!

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

Yes we have decided on the ring 🙂

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

1. How long have you and your SO been dating? Almost 5 years

 2. How old are both of you? I’m 23, he’s 24. 

 3. How long have you been waiting? He seriously brought up engagement and rings in May of 2013, bought the stone in February of this year. So I think waiting for more than a year, but waiting got to be way more serious after he bought the stone and showed it to me! 

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

 5. Have you discussed or looked at rings with your SO? Yup! We’ve gone shopping on multiple occasions and had consultations with custom jewelers. He knows the qualities that are important to me. 

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

I’ll likely be getting a classic solitaire! For some reason, it’s proving hard to find one I like though, you’d think a simple design like a solitaire would be easy. I’m hoping for 4-prong, tiffany-style head, thin band (less than 2mm) and no tapering or knife-edge. I know my dream ring is out there somewhere!

  • Wedding: October 2016

1. How long have you and your SO been dating? 4 years.

2. How old are both of you? I’m 24 he’s 26. 

3. How long have you been waiting? We’ve been talking about it on and off for quite a while over the past two years or so, but had loads of things we wanted to check off our lists so I didn’t think of myself as officially waiting until after we went ring shopping just over a month ago. 

4. Do you have a timeline (if so, what is it)? The proposal is planned for sometime in the next three months and we’ve decided on a general date of October time 2016 for when we’d like to get married but arent setting anything formally until after the proposal.

5. Have you discussed or looked at rings with your SO? Yup, he took me ring shopping and he’s bought it and hidden it in the house.

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

It’s a white gold eternity band with diamond daisies that look like they’re tension set between either side of the split milgrain band but are actually cleverly secured (don’t know what the setting is called)

  • Wedding: September 2016

1. How long have you and your SO been dating? 4.5-5 years.

 

2. How old are both of you? 

I’m 27, he’s 35.

3. How long have you been waiting? 

I knew within a few months that he was probably the one I would want to marry. I’ve gotten a bit more impatient lately!

4. Do you have a timeline (if so, what is it)?  Sometime between late October and next summer.

5. Have you discussed or looked at rings with your SO? Discussed them; I wrote out my thoughts on jewellery so he wouldn’t have to alert me that something was up, as he wants for the proposal to be a total surprise.

6. What ring do you want? *Post a pic if you want*  I would LOVE a pear with a halo and a pave band! Either white or yellow gold, both are beautiful. If he doesn’t want to spend thousands, I would be very happy with a teeny tiny stone and halo or a cluster. I want it to be set low without sacrificing sparkle or finger coverage, nothing over about .65 carats for me!
