When is he going to propose?
Posted: Mar 9, 2009 9:01 AM

Hello everyone, this is my first post here. Almost 2 weeks ago my bf took me to jared to pick out a ring. It was such a fun experience! After about 2 hours, I finally found the perfect ring for me. After the sales guy filled out my wish list, my bf asked me to go wait for him in the car. So I'm guessing he's going to pop the question soon! I told myself not to get all excited until he actually proposes, because I have no idea when he's going to do it. But I can't help myself. I've been planning our wedding since the day we picked out the ring!! I already made save the date cards and invites on my computer, picked out a venue, even a date. I haven't discussed any of this with him yet because I dont want him to get sick of wedding planning when he has not even asked yet. My question is, is this normal for me to be jumping the gun like this. All I do when I have a free moment is research wedding stuff online. How do I get myself to not think about wedding stuff all the time?

I think he will pop the question real soon! I don't think it's too early to be looking at wedding stuff. I was looking at wedding stuff about 6 months before my fiance proposed. I knew it was coming but I just didn't know when. I just wanted to be prepared. So when it came I had a bit more info and knowledge about weddings. I knew that I wanted a fall wedding and we even discussed the date way before we even got engaged. So I think it's ok for you to be reasearching and looking at magizines but I wouldn't book anything until he proposes.

Hi there. I am kinda in the same boat as you. I know that my BF of a year is going to ask me I just don't know when...it is driving me crazy lol I know exactly how you feel though.....I keep thinking of ideas, colors, etc but I dont mention it to him lol I dont want him to get sick of hearing stuff before he even asks! Of course on the way home this afternoon, he was all excited about planning his bachelor party and having the girl jump out of the cake Of course I know him well enough to know he is full of crap about that part, but he is mentioning stuff like that so I know he is planning on asking,,,,just waiting on him to get ready is killing me lol Feel free to private message me anytime....we can discuss things with each other until we get to the point of boring them with the details hehe


Best of luck to you!

"My question is, is this normal for me to be jumping the gun like this."

Yes, it's normal, don't worry. This entire Waiting for the Ring board is full of anxious women impatiently waiting for a proposal. You're not alone and you're not weird for starting to daydream and plan the wedding. You love your man, you've made up your mind to marry him, even though there isn't a ring on your finger it's natural to start planning the next stage in the future.

Besides, depending on when the wedding will be, you might need to start planning early. Some venues book a year in advance. Just leave some details up to your FH, don't go too overboard yet.

I think it's a very normal way to feel. My bf and I have looked at rings and pretty much have one picked out so now it's the waiting game for me as well. I did pretty well with it in the beginning, I think, because we haven't been together too long, but the more time passes the more I'm ready for it to happen. I think part of it is that I tend to like having a certain amount of control over things, or at least notice that they're coming, but with proposing it really is generally the guy's thing. I have done some research and planning with him already (no booking though- I want to wait until we're engaged), and he has enjoyed the early planning, too, so I'm lucky. I know not all men would feel that way. I'm not sure how to not think about it. Focusing on other exciting things helps some. Good luck, and I hope you get your prosonal soon. =-)

Thanks everyone for your responses. Glad to hear I'm not the only one anxiously awaiting. I just can't wait to start spreading the news about my engagement!! And of course now that I'm trying not to think about wedding stuff all the time, WE tv is running wedding stuff all week! I guess I'll take that as a sign...

You are definitely not the only one! I love WEtv!! I have been watching those wedding shows too....my BF works from 3pm to 11 pm so I am home alone after work and will be watching Bridezilla or something and he will call with "Whatcha doing?"....of course I can't say every single time "Watching wedding shows" LOL It is torture on us, isn't it? lol


Just know that you aren't alone in your waiting....I certainly felt better when I realized that I was alone

I know exactly how you feel!!!!! Me and my BF wen't last weekend and I found my perfect ring then too!! And I also know that he bought it this week, but that he hasn't asked my dad or anything (or so he says, but I don't really know for sure!) I have been planning since before he told me we were gonna go look! I have a date, I know when and where, I know colors, everything!! All I don't know is when hes gonna do it! We are going to the Bahamas on Saturday, but I don't know if thats enought time for him to get the ring resized and all. : Anyways, just wanted to let you know that I am in the same boat!!! It will happen dear!! : Congrats in advance!!

I had a few friends get engaged who all have been telling me:
"Don't ask when he's going to propose."
"Don't dwell on it."
"Try not to plan anything."
yada yada yada

They all feel like because they were so focused on it, there was something slightly askew with their engagement.

My boyfriend has had the engagement ring dince before Christmas. It's March now. And although I know him well enough to know that he has some elaborate plan for the proposal, I can't help but feel on the edge now. He said he would propose by June but after January. January is over. June is three months away.

So honestly, I don't have advice for anyone else who is trying not to bite all their nails off right now. When I get really anxious, I drink a glass of wine and crochet or knit. Anything to keep my hands busy. I find it soothing.

hmm...hope this helps.

Hello to all,

My boyfriend and I have been together 7 years and almost 4 months. We meet as freshman in college. We almost got engaged around our 5 year anniversary, but there was a family emergancy and we had to hold off. He has had the ring since November of 2005 and I have yet to see it. I am hoping to see it sometime soon, but when it does happen it will be well worth the wait. Good luck to all of you!

Ahh my fiancee didn't get mine sized before hand. Despite the fact that I always mentioned to him that I would like it to be the right size when I get it. I am not sure guys really think that stuff matters. I just wore medical tape around it for a couple days and took it to a place that resizes while you wait.
He might just be planning on giving it to you and do the sizing later (especially if he doesn't quite remember your size)
The bahamas would be a fun place for a proposal but most importantly... Have a fun vacation!!!!

Well I have been with my guy for 4 1/2 years and I have a promise ring that he gave me after we had been together for 1 year....but thats it. I am always thinking about my wedding and planning it and I don't even think him popping the Q is going to happen anytime soon....so I totally understand about wanting to plan and stuff! Just keep it on the DL....I do and my guy has no clue....(maybe thats part of the problem..hmmmm) Good luck!

We went and designed my ring back in Feb, and he picked it up yesterday. I've been told to be patient but this is really hard! I know he has the sparkly little thing somewhere in the house and I just have to sit around and wait a while longer for it. As far as the thinking about wedding planing goes, we talk about it rather openly. I think it's quite normal to be excited about planing a wedding. I know I am! Now if I can only figure out some way to be patient until he decides to actually propose to me, this is going to be tough.
