Sounds like progress, and I think those are great suggestons. Very reasonable. Hopefully he’ll either choose one, or make getting you the right ring a priority. I believe if a man wants to do something, he will do it. It just may take a little sacrifice.

I like how you told him that you are beyond ready. Great way to put it! That way he knows he needs to catch up and fast! I think I’ll use that phrase if my SO for some reason doesn’t propose within our timeline.

Good luck on your wedding band shopping trip!

My Boyfriend or Best Friend and I are sort of in the same situation. Not so much waiting for the “right” or “perfect” moment, but he’s all about the finances. We are absolutely financially stable, we could probably even afford to raise a couple of kids right now. I don’t understand this reason so much since we live together like husband and wife already. Yes, we want to make sure that I’m finishing up school, however I don’t think a marriage would affect that. Kids, sure, I’ll wait on that till I’m rolling along on my career. Plus we’re a military couple so I’m not sure how I’ll tackle that (I’m a military brat).

I feel the same as you. We went ring shopping back in Feb and I thougt we’d be engaged by now. He says he does not want to finace the ring and was to have it paid off before he propes. I think it’s a pride thing..maybe that’s what is going on with you boyfirend?

Have fun shoppimg btw..that’s always fun!

@QuinnLynn7: Your SO sounds a lot like mine.  He’s intent on making everything perfect.  It’s been a year since we looked at rings just to get an idea of what I wanted and how much to save.  Then he says he’s just planning to make it perfect.  It’s sweet but I just want to be with him.  I think a lot of us will agree that we don’t need it perfect we just need our SO’s and they make it special because it’s them.  Have fun ring shopping!! 😀

My FSIL’s ex bf had the perfect ring and was waiting to give her her dream proposal, under the eiffle tower in paris. They waited and waited and waited and life happened, 3 years later, no proposal and they ended up breaking up. I always wonder if things would’ve worked out better for them had they not tried so hard for the “perfect” proposal.
