1. Are you expecting a proposal soon, by when?

YES! I have a feeling it may be this weekend…but that’s because I have friends who are terrible at keeping their mouths shut 

2. How long have you been waiting?

For about 6-7 months since he found out about the family heirloom ring.

3. Has engagement season been difficult for you?

Nah….just chillin and waiting 

4. What are you getting your partner for Christmas?

We agreed on no presents this year but I ended up getting him a Chromecast for us

5. What do you want for X-mas? (Other than a ring LOL).

Hmm….nothing. Money from the family would be nice though

6. Post a pic of the ring you want, and its stats if you know them!

This is the setting we are putting the stone in. I haven’t seen it together yet and I cannot wait!

1. Are you expecting a proposal soon, by when?

– hopefully by Feb, after he does his taxes (he’s expecting a fairly large return). That’s not “soon” to me, though πŸ™‚

2. How long have you been waiting?

– since we’d been together for 4 years, so I’ve been ready for wifedom for almost a full year.

3. Has engagement season been difficult for you?

– YES!!! The holiday jewelry commercials are the worst. It also doesn’t help that four of my cousins have gotten engaged, and have all planned their weddings for 2015, and they’ve ALL been with their significant others for less than half the time SO & I have been together. I’m very happy for everyone tying the knot, but it’s been way too easy for me to fall into the “it’ll never happen to me” mindset.

4. What are you getting your partner for Christmas?

– I’m allowing him to continue to date me. Also maybe a few nice colognes and some PJs. Nothing fancy.

5. What do you want for X-mas? (Other than a ring LOL).

– FORMAL COMMITMENT! I’m waiting for him to ask me what I want, so I can tell him the same thing. I don’t need a dang ring! πŸ™‚

6. Post a pic of the ring you want, and its stats if you know them!

I’ve decided that I’m a Moissy Girl πŸ™‚ This is ENG1050 from MoissaniteCo. I want a 1CT, in two-tone rose gold (rose gold ring, white gold prongs).

 

And my backup: ENG189 from MoissaniteCo, in rose gold<br /><br />

1. Are you expecting a proposal soon, by when?

Sort of! He mentioned last weekend that he has been ring shopping and we also went to a couple stores to make sure I like the setting/style that I thought I did. Also he told me (after a few drinks, haha!) that he has a jeweler “guy” and he panicked whenever I tried on a ring style different from the one I’ve sent him pics of, so I feel like something is in the works. I don’t think a Christmas proposal is realistic (even though I’m still hoping) so maybe Spring?

2. How long have you been waiting?

We’ve been together for 10 years and the past two years or so I’ve been “actively” waiting. Since last weekend though the intensity of this waiting has been extreme!

3. Has engagement season been difficult for you?

Hoenstly yes. It’s been really difficult for the past 3 years or so. I get my hopes up so much around Christmas (not sure why) and every year it passes without an engagement. I usually have a quick cry in the shower then I’m ok. Ugh depressing.

4. What are you getting your partner for Christmas?

I asked if we could skip gifts this year and instead put our money towards our next trip and he happily agreed. πŸ™‚

5. What do you want for X-mas? (Other than a ring LOL).

No gifts!

6. Post a pic of the ring you want, and its stats if you know them!

I’ve always loved a round diamond in a pave setting. When we looked at those last weekend along with different sizes of diamonds, it looks like we’ll be getting .75-.80 ct center diamond and about .25 ct in the pave setting since that’s what fits the best quality and his budget.

1. Are you expecting a proposal soon, by when?

Yes! Hopefully within a month or two.

2. How long have you been waiting?

We’ve been together 5.5 years, but I’ve only been “waiting” a few months.

3. Has engagement season been difficult for you?

It was, but it got better once I found out he bought the ring πŸ™‚

4. What are you getting your partner for Christmas?

I got his a pair of boots, a wallet, and a few other small things.

5. What do you want for X-mas? (Other than a ring LOL).

Mostly just the ring! I didn’t really ask for anything so he will probably just get me nail polish or something.

6. Post a pic of the ring you want, and its stats if you know them!

<br />I hope this picture isn’t too big. I’m new here. It’s a 1.21 ct cushion though! I believe it is an I color and a very good cut, I don’t remember the other details!

Yaaaaay, I love surveys!

1. Are you expecting a proposal soon, by when?

Honestly, I’m trying really hard not to *expect* anything. That being said, I am certainly hoping it will happen before next summer! I have a pretty good feeling about it πŸ™‚

2. How long have you been waiting?

It’s funny…we’ve been together for 5 years, but I have only really considered myself “waiting” for about 6 months! Before then, we were just so busy trying to start our careers and such that it was always just a “some day” type of thing.

3. Has engagement season been difficult for you?

YESSSSSSS. Seems like every day another friend gets engaged. I definitely get jealous, though I am trying really hard not to get into that negative cycle!

4. What are you getting your partner for Christmas?

A really nicely made leather briefcase/laptop bag. He really wants one and has a VERY keen eye for design and quality!

5. What do you want for X-mas? (Other than a ring LOL).

Oh gosh, I don’t even know. A really good book or two, maybe? I’ve also put a couple of cute sweaters and jackets on my wish list!

6. Post a pic of the ring you want, and its stats if you know them!

All I know is that I want a sapphire!!! I’m leaning toward light colors…light to ice blue probably. And my style is all about simplicity, so I just want a solitaire πŸ™‚

1. Are you expecting a proposal soon, by when?

 

Not really.. I was expecting one, as we went to try on rings a few months ago.. But I honestly don’t think it’s going to happen any time soon. Maybe in another year or two.

 

 

2. How long have you been waiting?

 

About 6 months, give or take. It’s hard to pinpoint an exact time.

 

 

3. Has engagement season been difficult for you?

 

Somewhat. My best friend’s boyfriend bought her a ring and is proposing soon, so I’m a teeny bit jealous that she’s getting a Christmas proposal and I’m not.. Despite me being so f-ing excited for her!

 

 

4. What are you getting your partner for Christmas?

 

I’m still stumped.. He’s the hardest person to shop for, ever. 

 

 

5. What do you want for X-mas? (Other than a ring LOL).

 

Some Alex & Ani bracelets. Maybe a Michael Kors bag πŸ™‚

 

 

6. Post a pic of the ring you want, and its stats if you know them!

 

I don’t have a picture but I’d like something in rose gold, with a skinny diamond pave band, cushion shaped halo with a round diamond, about .75 carats for the big stone πŸ™‚

1. Are you expecting a proposal soon, by when?

Yes! Well, i was expecting a proposal by the time we go on our vacation to Mexico at the end of January, but since he hasn’t ordered the ring yet, and was told there is a 3 month wait time….i’m not so sure! but within the next 3-4 months, unless we find another jeweller here that has a shorter wait time on their Verragio’s πŸ™‚

2. How long have you been waiting?

A couple months shy of 6 years we’ve been dating, but i’d say i’ve been officially “waiting” and expecting a ring for about 3 years now….

3. Has engagement season been difficult for you?

Every month that goes by is difficult for me, it seems to be “engagement season” always, especially with Facebook constantly reminding me of others’ engagements and marriages! Sometimes i get a bit moody and pouty, but i try to keep that to myself, because i know the proposal is coming soon!

4. What are you getting your partner for Christmas?

We’ve decided that we don’t need more “stuff”, so we’ve agreed to save the money we’d spend on gifts, and book a trip together instead! We would much rather do stuff together than buy each other things. We did set a small gift limit though, so that we’d have something to open from each other at his parents’ place for xmas, so i bought him a Saddleback leather wallet and matching luggage tag to go with the Saddleback luggage i bought him last year πŸ™‚

5. What do you want for X-mas? (Other than a ring LOL).

Since our gift limit is small, i’d love it if he got me a pair of Sorels or some more workout clothes! ( we are both powerlifters, lol)

6. Post a pic of the ring you want, and its stats if you know them!

My dream ring is the Verragio Parisian 107R, in white and rose gold, with a 1ct center stone ( diamond or moissanite, i’m trying to convince him that moissanite is the way to go for us! i love a colourless stone, but it doesn’t NEED to be diamond, i love the sparkle of moissanite JUST as much). SO loves this ring too because he wants a rose gold wedding band, and this has bits of rose gold, so it would “tie the two together” πŸ™‚

Yes! Expecting one any day now! I’ve been with my high school sweetheart for five years in January and he just got a great job and I’ll be done with my degree soon so it is finally the right time! I’ve known since the day I met him I wanted to marry him. It just wasn’t the right time until now because we were only 15 and 16 when we met. This is the style of ring I showed him I like. πŸ™‚
