My S/O and I just got done looking at customizable rings online, and we found the one. He said we will have to wait until he gets paid next to get it and then he’s not going to tell me when he does order it because he wants to keep me on my toes. Its so hard to be patient, because this ring is on a special sale for 50% off. I would love to just be updated every step of the way, but that’s me being controlling. *sigh* I suppose keeping busy and trusting the process are in order.
What is your advice?

Busy yourself with other things. Start a new hobby or pick up an abandoned one. Go visit friends and family a bit more often. Volunteer somewhere. Plan a trip. If you can find something else to do that you really enjoy filling your free time with, it will help with the cycle of just thinking about the ring/proposal all the time.

He knows it’s on sale presumably. Hopefully he’ll be able to get it at that rate. I’m the mean time, tell yourself he won’t propose until the summer or later so you can put it out of your mind. It’s crazy hard once you know it is ordered to chill out. Ignorance is bliss.
