Just give him some time. He clearly wants to make it special for you and if he didn’t care about timing he’d have giving it to you in the parking lot. the more you bring it up, the further back it could push it… because it sounds like he wants to make it as much of a surprise as possible. 

If you do want the experience of a proposal, let him do it when he thinks it’s right. My Fiance proposed in the kitchen while I was making a very-non-special dinner…now every time I’m at the sink I think of it. He’ll find away to make it special for you ๐Ÿ™‚

Definitely leave him alone about it.  How would you feel if he was hounding you concerning another big issue?  Relax. Wouldn’t you like to be surprised for the actual proposal??  Since he already has the ring, you know it’s coming at some point, so relax.

My now-husband had the ring for 10 months before he proposed.  Some guys just take forever.  And my guy didn’t even plan anything special!  I wanted to do something nice for our five-year anniversary so I planned and book us a hotel room and drove us to it and engineered our whole weekend.  All he did was remember to bring the ring with him that weekend and propose.  Although, I guess I should be thankful he did that much!

At least you know he has the ring!  If you both feel like you are mostly engaged and you feel okay starting the planning process, don’t let not having a ring on your finger stop you.  But only plan as much as you are comfortable, and if you feel like you really aren’t engaged until he proposes, make sure he knows that, and that you don’t want to plan until you are officially engaged.

Good luck!

You are so close hon! The “wanting the experience of a proposal” is a double-edged sword…it means you have to wait. Hang in there!

Leave him alone about it. If you wanted a proposal you have to be prepared to wait for him to figure out what he wants to do. Bugging him about it may only irritate him if he’s trying to plan something special.

I agree – I think you’ve got to let it be, and hopefully you won’t have that much longer to wait.  You know the ring is there – which is a huge step!  ๐Ÿ™‚

Just be patient. The big part is over-the ring has landed- just chill and think of the happiness you’ll feel when he asks. ๐Ÿ™‚

My boy has my ring in his underwear drawer.  It’s been there for about a week.  He’s dropping hints big time.

 

Just be patient…the excitement from waiting is killing me, but I’m enjoying him buttering me up while I’m waiting.

I agree – the ring is purchased and sitting there, he isnt going to make you wait forever!

LOL it’s so funny to me how so many of us are in the same boat. My guy has had the ring “hidden” underneath his side of the bed for a week as well. If I didn’t know there were other people in the same situation, I would have thought it was totally abnormal. Yay for WeddingBee and the fabulous Ladies-In-Waiting!!

DEFINITELY leave him alone. I accidentally found out my husband had the ring (he has me open his mail because otherwise bills don’t get paid…and he got a bill for the ring). Anyway, I waited a couple weeks and then when I couldn’t wait anymore, I finally brought it up. He was like, whatever, I may as well give it to you, then. And he handed it to me!!! That was my proposal! So yes, I advise waiting!!!! ๐Ÿ™‚
