My Boyfriend or Best Friend bought a ring in Sept but has not yet proposed! I found it when i was putting snickers in his work bag as a surprise for his flight and oops…..there it was. It is now with him on the other side of the country for two weeks. I knew about the ring since he purchased it so needless to say it has been driving me absolutly nutty for about 2 months now. I keep thinking that maybe he changed his mind or is having second thoughts. I have not talked about getting married or engaged to him for awhile now so I don’t drive myself absolutly crazy! I just need to know why he would be holding onto it so long and what can I do so I don’t end up in the looney bin over all of this. He will be home just before Thanksgiving.

Welcome to the hive! Def do not bug him about it! He may be planning the perfect proposal that you will love telling over and over. I had a friend that bugged her guy so much, he just gave it to her and said forget about the plans he had. Now she complains about the proposal! So, whenever you feel crazy, just come to the bee and hang out with us!

Welcome as well! I feel your pain! My dear Boyfriend or Best Friend bought my engagement ring WITH/IN FRONT OF ME a month ago. No proposal yet. I know that confusion/frustration/wondering that you seem to be going through. He must have something in mind. He must.
Hang in there 🙂

Relax! I agree that you shouldn’t say anything about it because he’s probably planning the perfect proposal, and the last thing you want to do is ruin his surprise. I think most guys really pry themselves on giving us the perfect proposal and want to feel like they’ve really made it special for us. Hang in there. . .maybe he’ll propose as soon as he gets back from his trip! If not, maybe he’s waiting for the moment when it just feels right to him.
Hang in there. . .but in the meantime, we’re here for you! Don’t go too crazy, now! Lol 🙂

Maybe he’s waiting for the Holidays! A Christmas/New Years proposal would be very sweet!

I’m engaged. He asked me the night he returned from his two week work trip on 11/21/10. Even tho I knew he had the ring I didn’t expect it that night. It was just the two of us at home! We have set our date for 10/6/12 to give us plenty of time to plan for our big day.
