jl2017 :  I had no idea he was going to propose. We had been together 3.5 years, and I had been anticipating our engagement for the last 1.5 years (we had talked about getting engaged A LOT, I even saw him asking a friend where he got his wife’s ring!). After a while, I stopped anticipating. It was making me crazy. I ruined a christmas for myself. I was fully convinced he would propose, and when I opened my gift of boot warmers (something I had wanted for a while!) I burst out in tears. After that, I vowed to not think about it. Then, 1 year and 1 month later, he proposed, after having the ring for 1 year! I am glad I was surprised, made it more magical!

jl2017 :  I’m currently in that boat too!! Fairly certain he bought the ring a bit over a month ago, and he should be proposing our upcoming vacation (leaving in 2 days!).

I’ve been DYING knowing that the ring is in our home, and I want to look for it SO BADLY to make sure he did buy it. But I know if I find the box, I’ll open it, and I DON’T want to do that!!

Just keep hanging in there πŸ˜€

jl2017 :  I totally knew he was going to do it before he did but I had no idea when!! I thought maybe before christmas sometime. 

He proposed to me this Monday just gone! I am so glad he didn’t make me wait too much longer as I felt like I was going crackers haha! Just try not to expect it when you go out together. When it doesn’t happen it is disappointing and it ruins the day.

It is SOOOO worth the wait trust me! Everyone kept saying that to me and I didn’t believe them. It was magical and a million times more than I was ever expecting 😍😍😍

Don’t stress about it!!! When I was stressing it made every holiday/special event frustrating and sad when I didn’t get the ring. When I wasn’t expecting it, he popped the question this past Christmas!

My husband bought my ring and didn’t propose for another 3 years lol. But we were perfectly happy dating, so I had no problem waiting πŸ™‚

jl2017 :  I thought I had 3-4 months to wait but my husband surprised me by proposing ahead of our timeline. But still, we had been talking about marriage for 8 months before that and I knew he wanted to get married in the following year, so I knew it was coming. 

For me, it wasn’t terribly difficult to wait but I did have to stop myself from talking about our future wedding. I wanted to start planning!!

My Fiance proposed a couple days after asking what ring I wanted. I was completely taken by surprise even though I suspected he was going to propose soon. I assumed he was going to do it when his parents came to visit late August and was willing to wait a bit.

We had the marriage talk a year ago and he told me never to bring it up again, since he didn’t want to feel pressured into marrying me because I wanted him to; it had to be something he wanted as well. So we did not mention anything marriage-related for a year. However, I moved in with him a few months ago and I think that was around the time he started to make his decision. He said he didn’t know when exactly he felt like doing it; just that it was the time. He wanted to pop the question in a ferris wheel, so he got a placeholder ring and now we’re just waiting for the real ring to be done! πŸ˜€

I am in the same boat.  My ring is currently being made it is going to take up to 8 weeks. I dunno how I am going to keep my mind off of it.

How did I bare it? I didn’t! LOL

I had anticipated a proposal for our week long romantic trip, too. And it was a similar situation to yours, but not really. The ring was ready for the trip, but it was faulty and had to be returned. He only told this to me after and so my hopes weren’t crushed before the trip, I kept expecting. It drove me nuts!

Anyway, I got very emotional when I realised the trip was going to be ring-free, and it happened again once he told me why (2 weeks after the trip took place). I just felt so unlucky and like the world wanted to bring me down.

I stopped worrying about it at some point. I was still waiting, but just didn’t think about it much. I am so happy I put my mind at ease finally, because when I least expected it, he asked! Not gonna lie I nagged him to death about this whole thing for so long and I regret it so much. I made him lose a few hairs, I bet.

Just please try and keep yourself sane. The less you try to think about it, the less you will spoil it! You know for sure he is actually in process of obtaining your e-ring, so your days are counted! Good luck!

I am going crazy. He will propose once he’s home in November and I can’t wait. I want it so badly but I know he can’t propose until he’s home so I’m trying to make myself chill out.
