This is weird and probably seems silly. My bf has the ring but doesn’t know I know. He’s been talking/joking about engagement a lot lately (I’ve been trying not to, but we all know how hard that is!). So there’s this new phone he’s wanted for aaages and keeps going on about. His newest idea is that I should get it for him as an engagement present. Thing is, it’s his birthday wednesday and I was going to give it to him then. (I bought it months ago, before I found the ring..) Okay so this is all fine but our most recent conversation was that he gets me a ring, then I get him the phone. He basically said not to get the phone until I’ve got a ring. So now I’m kinda worried that if I give him the phone it’s like I’m pushing the him to propose or something… am I just overthinking it all?? Shut up and give him the phone? Or wait til Christmas? It’s just he knows I want to get engaged soooo bad, I’d hate for him to think I was trying to rush him or pressure him by making this ‘first move’ rather than leave him to do it in his own time…. any thoughts?
hah sorry I just read this over and I can see how silly it is. Waiting is affecting my sanity!!! but I’m so worried about this lol

lol shut up and give him the phone! Sorry, I had to say it- it was cute! IMO I think you should just give it to him! I dont think its “pushy”, you got it before you made the deal anyways! Unless you have something else that you can give him…..?

I think you should just give him the phone and explain that you had already bought it. hehe I love the way “waiting” makes us go all crazy!! Just make it seem like you don’t know he has the ring… maybe say something like “I know you don’t have the ring yet but I already bought the phone and I wanted to give you something you really wanted on your birthday”. Then he gets what he wants and doesn’t think you know.

Ahhhh the waiting insanity–we all experience it at some point or another 😉 Anyway, I think at the end of the day, he will be so excited to be getting something he’d really like. I would explain to him that you were too excited to give it to him and didn’t want to wait any longer. I guarantee he’s not going to ask you to hang on to it until he proposes to you! Good luck!

So it worked out perfectly, I gave him a few decoy presents in the morning -a dvd, showergel, boring stuff lol and kept the phone as a last surprise after dinner. First thing he blurted out was “I bought the ring!!” .. so I do my best surprised face haha and he says he’s saving it for a “perfect moment”.. so all in all it worked out great cos it was wonderful to see him so happy with his new toy, and now it’s not a secret anymore that he has the ring. (he doesnt need to know I’ve already seen it :-p )
Right, back to the waiting game!
