    Because I am cray, I dragged my then-bf, now-FI to Tiffany’s to look at rings when we were 23 and had been together for like a year. I knew a proposal wouldn’t be coming for many many years though… so technically we waited four years. He proposed 3-ish months after we went ring shopping with the serious intention of getting engaged.

    FWIW, I’m in the camp of considering y’all already engaged. Definition number two: en·gage·ment. [inˈɡājmənt, enˈɡājmənt]  NOUN  1. a formal agreement to get married. synonyms: marriage contract · betrothal · espousal  2. an arrangement to do something or go somewhere at a fixed time: (such as marriage).

    DH went ring shopping one day (by himself, I wanted it to be a total surprise) and proposed the next.

    bree90:  my bf and I looked at rings 8 months ago.  I found out he actually got it that week and I still don’t have it!  He says he’s waiting for the right time but it has caused some fights for sure.  In 8 months,  there hasn’t been a right time?  Very frustrating.  I know it will happen but it’s a second time around for us both so I know he has fears.

    It sounds like he’s a wonderful man and is very excited to marry you! He could just be waiting for the perfect ring, or perhaps is finding ways to make your proposal special. Fiance and I had decided that we were going to be getting engaged all the way back in September. However, due to my family living all over the country, he waited until Christmas to do the actual proposing, since it’s the only time of year my entire family is around. He bought my ring over Thanksgiving.

    My husband waited a year from ring shopping to proposal. I think you need to calm down before you possibly ruin a great proposal.
