@MissMetal:  I needed this, thank you. My SO and I have been together 5 years.  He purchased the ring last spring and I haven’t brought it up since then.   I was starting to think he changed his mind but your post rrally makes me feel better.

Awww congrats! Good tips about not badgering your SO! 🙂 I think people always expect men to do this grand rom-com chick flick proposal but if that isn’t them it’s crazy to expect it! Show us the ring!!!

Exactly!!! I’ve been engaged twice, and both times were pretty laid back “hey let’s stop here and look at rings” type situations. It’s what was right for me. I would hate a big public proposal at a hockey game or something where he got down on one knee.  You have to think of your boyfriend too – if he’s the type who is reserved, he’s not likely to plan some big elaborate proposal. The point isn’t how you get engaged, just that you get there!

That was so sweeet! Mine was not a huge ordeal either and I prefer it that way. My Fiance proposed as I was getting into bed one night. He was wearing boxers and an inside out t shirt, I had a huge t shirt on, no makeup, hair in a bun. And still, it was the sweetest moment of my life. As long as it’s about the two of you, that’s all that matters
