We talked about it very seriously last September, and he was saving but waiting until he had more stable employment to buy the ring. We went to Robbins brothers last month and now I am waiting. No idea when he will get to pick up the ring or if he already has. We’ve been together for 6.5 years and are very open with each other so I doubt he’ll be able to keep it to himself for long when he does get it πŸ™‚

I’m waiting for any day now too. A few weeks ago my bf started asking me about what rings I like, my ring size, etc. That led to us looking at rings together online. I’m 99% sure he bought one already, but I don’t know if he actually has it or not. The worst part about waiting for me is that I have already planned like five different versions of our wedding in my head but can’t really talk to him about it or make any real plans!

  • Wedding: October 2012

We dated for 6 years and started talking about it very seriously at the 4 year mark, but he wanted to wait till I was completely done with college.  I finished up in December, and he bought the ring in January.  He didn’t TELL me he got the ring, but I knew.  And I went nuts.  He didn’t propose till JUNE.  That’s right, he held on to the ring for 5 months before finally giving it to me. 

He said he was waiting for me to finally stop talking about it so that he could surprise me.  He did it in the kitchen on my birthday, and I was really surprised so I guess he got his way [=   THe waiting is the WORST part, for sure!  Chin up, it will so be worth it when it happens.  My only advice is don’t tell everyone that you know its coming, because if it takes a while they will keep asking and it will make it worse.

  • Wedding: March 2013

We are getting married next September (09-01-2013) and he still hasn’t proposed! We decided at the end of July to get married next year (and put our house off until the next year, our plan up until then was to start construction next year but we talked about it and decided getting married first was the better order). We even looked at rings in July, but it was just so he could get to know my taste. He asked my father in mid August for his blessing (dad said “great” and told him we should have six kids!). We started planning it almost right away, but after a few uncomfortable conversations with people (they would ask how we got engaged, to see the ring, or something along those lines) decided I didn’t want to be planning a wedding until we were officially engaged. (I don’t like lying and I felt like I had to a few times or why would these potential vendors take me seriously?). We have not openly told people we are planning a wedding, but my big mouth has blabbed to a few friends that the proposal is coming… I also wish that I had kept my mouth shut.

I’m waiting for…who knows! We picked a ring, and he is proposing by the end of the year. I just have no clue when it’s happening between now and then. I am full of anticipation.

My SO has bought my ring, and I know it will be finished being made next week (I think). This weekend I told him he better give me some sort of warning before it comes so I know to do my nails and call him “boyfriend” for the last few times. He just gave me this knowing look and said “i don’t knooooow”.

I am praying that it comes in 2-3 weeks. He says it will be before Christmas, but that waiting is driving me absolutely nuts! . eeeeeeeeeeeek. HURRY UP. He told me he’s got it all planned out. I have a sneaky feeling it is going to involve deer hunting (our first date). Bow season starts in 2 weeks!

We’ve talked about it, and have a time line, but I don’t think it’s coming any time soon. I know it’s gonna come before September 2013, since he knows I want a year to plan. But a few days ago, my SO goes “I should propose on December 22nd, you know, the day after the world ‘ends’.” I thought my heart was gonna fall through my stomach! He said he was just joking (he wants it to be a surprise and wants to do it all his self)

But seriously, I hate waiting!

That will be exciting moving somewhere new and starting a life together! I am sure your parents will understand. I bet he will propose when you least expect it or a significant date. My SO and I want to get married next September so that means any time now for me too. Our anniversary is on Thanksgiving so I would assume that would be the latest. Well I hope we both get engaged soon!!!

@echolove:  Aww so cute! That would be such a memorable engagement on Halloween! Maybe make hints about how you need a year to plan a wedding ;). Now that September is here I might start dropping those hints about how sometimes venues need a year.
