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!” πŸ™‚

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. πŸ™‚
(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 πŸ™‚

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.
