I think you should make him hide it so it’s out of your sight and hopefully a little bit out of your mind…It’s super-hard not to focus on the ring and the proposal but it’s definitely coming soon! Most of us have gone through this at some point before getting engaged and it’s sooooo frustrating but it’s all worth it when he does propose, bc it will really be an incredible moment…So hang in there, hide that ring somewhere, vent to weddingbee and bask in the knowledge that you’re getting engaged SOON!!!! 

Bonus: you already know what the ring looks like and how much you love it! The ring can be a huge source of stress for some people, so at least you don’t have to worry about that!

I’m with trailmix.  I think I’d ask him to hide the ring away somewhere…that way it’s not a constant reminder.  And besides, wouldn’t you realize something was up the day it WASN’T sitting there on the shelf anymore??  That would totally ruin his surprise! 

Congrats, though.  Glad to hear it is coming soon and that you were able to be a part of the ring buying process.  My bf and I did the same thing, and I’m still anxiously awaiting its arrival too, but I wouldnt have it any other way.  I love knowing that I will end up with a ring I adore that we picked out together!!

I agree that it would be good to have him hide the box somewhere! And it will happen, don’t worry! My guy waited a while after we got the ring together too, and I was getting so anxious and started to get a little frustrated but it turned out that he just really wanted to craft the perfect proposal to make me happy and was taking all this time to plan something elaborate out (even though in the end it was a totally impromptu thing, after all that) and I bet your guy is doing something similar. I think a lot of men get so nervous about making the proposal perfect that they don’t realize we’d rather just get the show on the road.

Is nobody else’s reaction what mine would be, which is to uh, just start wearing it?  I mean, he put it out on the bookshelf instead of hiding it – of course you’re going to know when he’s going to ask, since the box will disappear, so why is he doing that?  It is obviously because he wants you to just start wearing the ring around :).  

Alright, that probably isn’t true.  But I think you can nudge the process along by asking him to hide it, because that will remind him that it’s there, and that it’s bothering you.  My Fiance had the ring somewhere in the house, but it was out of sight and out of mind and that made it easier to get off my mind.  

Also, don’t count on the proposal being perfect just because he’s waiting. Hopefully he will, but he might do what Mr. Mary Jane did and just ask you at home while you’re wearing sweatpants.  Just don’t want you to be disappointed.

word – he needs to put away or give it to you like yesterday! that’s sooo unfair. i’d threaten him and be like, i’m just going to start wearing it whether you officially give it to me or not!

Make him hide it! It will make it so much easier for you not to be able to see it! I know that my SO has a ring, or has it coming, (being sized!!!) but he told me that we wouldn’t get engaged until like January! Christmas is my favorite too, so I’m hoping, but I don’t want to get to excited because if it doesn’t happen I’ll be so bummed! So try to stay possitive and just focus on Christmas and presents (for others!) and the time will fly by!!!! At least you know he has a ring 😉
