It’s been two years since we looked at rings and he hasn’t bought one or saved at all.

wanderlust15 :  That is always the most excruciating part of waiting- when you know what the ring will be but you don’t know when he’s buying it or when he’ll propose!!! Honestly though, we went ring shopping about a year before he actually proposed. It was more like “browsing” than an actual solidified plan. He took me back to the jewelry store again about two months before he popped the question so he could confirm the right sizing and style, so I knew then that it was about to happen. 

Did you get a sense of “we’re just browsing” or has he made it clear that he wants to propose soon? Not to pry, but have you guys had that timeline discussion? 

ETA: Just saw your update!! Congrats bee your ring is beautiful!!!

What am I doing while I wait??? I don’t think you even want to know lolol, this wait is horrible. We went ring shopping to a couple places mostly just to have the experience. We’re getting my ering custom made from China, but I wanted to be able to have the memory of going to a shop with him and looking at rings. From what I’ve read regarding the vendor I’m using, it usually takes 1.5-2 weeks for the ring to be made, I’m at exactly 1.5 ( I did not make a countdown for it, I promise. ok I did.) I woke up this morning like a child on Christmas and nothing ): But can’t be more than a few days!!! Just enjoy this excitement, that’s what I’m trying to do, because it won’t last forever!!
