I have been dating my guy for almost a year and a half. I love him so much! He is such a blessing in my life!
Okay, so …. we aren’t living together until married and he works super long hours, which means we don’t see each other everyday. I can’t wait until we are able to be with each other and wake up to one another! We have talked about getting married since the start. He knows I’m ready to be married now and I know he is too. It’s frustrating!
I can be kinda pouty about things, but try not to about this. ANYWAY ….. I know he is waiting to get a ring ( I have told him so many times I DO NOT need or want anything fancy). We went to dinner a few weeks ago, celebrating a late Valentine’s Day. When he came back to my house to hang out we started talking and I told him how its hard not being able to be together NOW! He turned to me and said ” This is not how I planned on doing this because I don’t have a ring, but I love you and want to marry you” …… Well, me being the big BONE HEAD, I didn’t say anything! I felt bad for pouting right before he said that and was kind of in shock that it came out of his mouth. He laughs about it since I didn’t answer, but I feel super crazy! I know that he will get a ring and ask me again, but I could be planning a wedding and be closer to marrying my love ….. if only I would have said YES!!
UGhhhhh, now I will continue on with the waiting game. Am I super crazy?!! 🙂
I know I need to be patient, but I am so in love and can’t for our life to be together! Hopefully soon!!
Have a wonderful weekend ladies!

Awwwww!!! That was truly from his heart. Now you know he really wants to be with you!!
He knows he caught you off guard, since he even said “this isn’t how I planned it…” and since he laughs about it, like you said. So, I wouldn’t fret about it. He’s probably thinking to himself (and if there were a guys wedding discussion post, he’d probably post): “I almost blew it! What was I thinking asking her without a ring!” You know what I mean? He’s probably kicking himself, too.
All in all, sounds like you two are heading in the same direction and just think how thrilled you both will be when you go through “Proposal: Take Two!” 🙂

I know! It was from his heart!! 🙂 He’s such a good guy!
I can’t wait for “Take Two” …. hopefully it won’t take as long this time! 🙂

Aww this was so sweet of him. Sounds like it might happen *for real* soon.
I suggest you check out the waiting board to help the waiting period pass smoothly.

You could always ask him to marry you for round number two! Then it would take the pressure of of him finding you a ring maybe? And it could be your time to take him by surprise!

My husband did this last April. And he said “I can’t propose without a ring, right?”
Either “yes” or “no” to that question doesn’t really answer it. I think I said “yes.” But it still turned into an un-proposal like yours. Don’t worry, you know he means it now! Congratulations! And/or pre-congratulations.
He didn’t ask again before we got married, but he did ask before our wedding. 🙂
(Yes, our wedding is happening after we got married.)

Why not ask him if your V Day conversation means you’re engaged, or does he feel it necessary to wait and propose again. He might be hanging back because of the pout you mentioned. You might be surprised, and if you just ask him directly, you could be off the “waiting” board and on the “we started planning/booking before the ring” board 🙂

Aww, don’t worry about it too much. You know he wants to be with you and the ring will come soon enough.
My Fiance told me that we would have been engaged almost a year earlier if he could have asked me without the ring. But he knew a (small, not terribly expensive – don’t want to sound too materialistic, lol) ring was important to me as a symbol of his intent. It all worked out in the end.
