@memo:  Hah! You made me laugh out loud and get caught not studying!

My SO knows at this point when I’m pouting about not being engaged, because it happens like clockwork when we talk with friends about their married life or our future wedding. Instead of just letting me have my few hours to pout he insists on asking what’s wrong and won’t take “nothing” for an answer. It’s actually very sweet, he reassures me that he wouldn’t be making me wait unless there was a good reason, but I don’t want it to feel like I’m guilt-tripping him either!

Whenever he’s with me–we’re in a LDR–and he gets all sweet and cuddly and suddenly says,”Let’s get married–right now.” And I’m all,”Uuh.. say what? Nu-uh, no way, you made me wait this long, we’re gonna do it the traditional way.”

know he’s saving up for the ring, and he’s going to be buying it very very soon, like, in a week, so I can’t complain too much, but I’m still on pins and needles about it!

My SO is so proud of himself for purchasing the ring that he keeps reminding me about it and asking if I want to see it!!! I told him if he wanted me to see it he’s more than welcome to ask the big old question. But no. That has to wait 2 months!! :/ going bonkers.

He buys me things. Gifts that I never would ask for. I’m like, no I don’t want anymore gifts! I only want ONE THING!

Since we started dating, maybe about 6 months in, he has talked about how he either wants a destination wedding somewhere in Europe, like Greece or Italy, OR do a vineyard wedding here in California.

 

Literally he has told me we’re going to get married from the start.

 

It has taken 3.5 years to get to the point of getting a ring.  Clearly you didn’t need that long to figure it out?

@lsimpson:  I get this a lot too… and his friends say it too.  Kind of weird but I think it’s because I don’t try to control him like a lot of their SOs do.

My SO is another one that spends a lot of time planning big expenditures for the next year or two (mostly home/landscaping renovations), and talking about them, but has mentioned several times that “the ring (set) is really expensive”, and he doesn’t know if he’ll be able to afford it.

Yeah, buddy?  Well, you wouldn’t be able to even seriously consider any of those renovations if my income (basically equal to his) weren’t also coming into the house and helping to pay for the mortgage.  The ring I want is less than $500 after shipping.  The whole set (with e-ring and wedding band) is less than $650-700, depending on cost of precious metals at the time of purchase.  And since I’m buying his wedding band, the cost of that isn’t even a factor for him!  Right now, we’re re-landscaping the front yard ($$$), planning a remodel of our bathroom ($$$$), and planning the purchase and installation of a coal/wood stove for the living room ($$$$). So the whole “it’s just so expensive” argument doesn’t really hold water there.

In reality, the issue is that he’s perfectly willing to put his and our money into the house, but doesn’t see the point of putting it into our relationship in the form of a symbolic piece of jewelry that he perceives as being overpriced, since he has next to no knowledge of jewelry.
