Well, yeah, you’re basically there. I can understand someone delaying an engagement, but at this rate I think he should just go with the bells and whistles and propose without an engagement ring (I guess he essentially already has, though), with the condition that he’ll put the ring on your finger as soon as he gets it. He doesn’t need the ring then and there to actually propose, but hey, as far as ‘obvious signs he’ll propose’ goes, this is basically it.


I think that all of the ‘signs’ about housework, money, getting a house, all of his buddies pairing off and marrying, acts nervous, saving up money, talking about weddings, etc., could be indicative of so many other things it’s hard to tell. It is likely that he started shaping up and getting more involved with housework as an unconscious way to prove to you that he could provide – in other words, to get you to say ‘yes.’

But for me personally, I have all of the ‘signs’ they always write in those dumb lists – and still not engaged, probably several months yet away from getting engaged, etc, and we haven’t been dating much less than you. For a long time, I was certain a proposal was fast coming by his behavior – but nope.

I’d say the ring-like stuff is probably your best bet that a proposal is coming. Otherwise, they are too unpredictable to guess.

Oh – somewhere in there I meant to say, ‘congratulations on your engagement, whether it’s ‘official’ or not.”

@WaitingweddingBE: oh i totally get how you are feeling…

My bf is paying off my ring this month and told me he would propose before the end of the month.  I’m dying here…24 more days to go and it can’t come soon enough.  It’s so hard waiting.  You can do it!!!

I totally feel you! I was expectingmy ring this month, but wham bam shabam..no ring. We have to pay extra on our security deposit for a new apartment since his credit kinda sucks, so no ring until my birthday in August (maybe). I understand our apartment is a priority, but it still sucks. We’re technically engaged, but not having a ring still puts a damper on things. Just hang in there 🙂
