Hardly anyone seems to ever respond when I ask a question on here, like one between 1 and 3 people. I asked this question before and only two people had anything to say. my FH brought up male engagement rings and said "I'll be really happy if I get one, but I won't complain if I don't" so does he want one or not? I can't tell and he won't really give me a straight answer. And then there's the question of when to give it to him in relation to when he proposes.

It sounds to me like he would really like one. He probably wouldn't be too disappointed since they are not very popular yet. I would get him one if I were you.   As far as when you should present it to him, I think you should plan it out and surprise him with it, probably within 3 months of his proposal. That way, he can also enjoy wearing it before he gets the actual wedding band, unless of course, the ring you choose for him ends up being the actual wedding band.  Good luck, and I'm sure more people will respond this time.

Here comes the bride!!

I know I responded to your last one....   So really I've never heard of a male engagement ring before.   But it sounds like you FH wants one.  My FH is wearing his wedding band but it's not really an engagement ring he's just wearing his wedding band early.

Thank you, and what a quick response, wow. and I keep looking for something he'd like but everything seems either really understated or really overdone, lol. I do have this ring i inherited from my grandfather, it wasn't his wedding band but it's white gold with this really interesting finish that is sort of criss crossed and rough, but so tiny you can barely tell the design is there, lol, I don't describe that very well do I?

You could give him the one from your grandfather as his engagement band? If not, I've heard of people just giving silver bands as male engagement rings.

As for people not responding, a lot of people don't look at all the forums/threads. I am guilty of doing this also but I'm trying to make it an effort to see the forums now. :)

Sometimes I don't answer just because I don't have an opinion, just don't know, or don't know how I contribute further than other posters.

 never heard of a male engagement ring before.... But, it sounds like it might mean a lot to him so maybe just get him one, it would probably make him really happy :)

I have never heard of a male engagment ring, but it does sound like he might like one. I think him saying he would be happy if he got one is a big hint that he does really want one.

I would say he wants one, he just won't be disappointed if he doesn't get one.  Why not try something different and propose to him with his engagement ring?

When is my wedding

so do you think it sounds good that I can use my grandfather's ring and when he proposes to me I can just give it to him then?

I know that when I say things like that, "Well, I'd like one but wouldn't complain if I didn't" I usually am hinting tha I really, really do want whatever I'm asking for. But guys and girls are really different, and some guys just do really mean what they say. Maybe just be straight foward with him and ask him what he really wants.

Sounds like he really wants one!  If you think he'll like your grandfather's ring, that sounds really sweet.  I think it would be cool to surprise him with it when he proposes.
