Hi there. I too am in the waiting stage. Months ago, it used to actually bother me and make me sad and anxious and frustrated and jealous when I’d see yet another Facebook friend post a picture of her ring. We are sort of technically engaged because our wedding is planned for this October! But I don’t have the ring yet. It took me to take a long hard look at why it was so frustrating for me not to be engaged. I was sad, disappointed, and frustrated about all the things in my life and I was upset because i just wanted something to make me happy. Well, I’m glad we waited because financially we were in a tough place. Both of us were and I was just looking for a temporary distraction to make me happy temporairly. I still don’t have my ring but I believe it will be beautiful, I designed and picked it out. 


So, like you, I know when it is coming because he was waiting for a day when both of us have off and we just haven’t had it-so now he won’t have off so that makes me a little sad. It will be this Sunday, because he needed to tell me not to make plans. God bless and can’t wait to hear how it goes and see your ring.

My fiance had my ring in the house for 3 months before he proposed- I almost went mad.. he didnt know I knew it was there.  One day, I couldnt take it, had some drinks and yeah let slip that I knew.  He looked so devasted, I thougth I had ruined everything.  I thought I would have to wait even longer for it too be a suprise.  I was beside myself.  Well, what do you know, he popped the question the next weekend, because he knew I was waiting and upset!


It will come sooner than you think, and then when it does, you will be like OKAY IT WASNT THAT BAD!!!

Hi bee! I totally feel you! I don’t live my man, but I picked out the ring with him, I know he has it in his dresser drawer and I knew about it for over 1 1/2 years! We’ve been dating for 2 1/2 years and its really hard too not say anything about it and ask for it. What’s really hard for me, is that he had too take a paycut and unfortunately if he didn’t have to do that, we would be engaged right now! The best advice I can give is don’t expect it. Trust me, I thought he would propose this year, but he said it won’t be until next year at the earliest. This applies until he’s on his knee with a ring in his hand.

girlandherpearl :  Thanks, Bee! We are both nuts about each other and care for each other heaps too. To be honest, I really don’t care where he does it… frankly he could do it right now with both of us in our PJs after eating brekkie and I’d happily say yes and cry haha 🙂 He’s a pretty special man <3

I’m hoping for you and have my toes, fingers and anything else I can cross, crossed for you!! The anticipation!!! Keep us all updated.
