I Found Out My Boyfriend Is Going to Propose

"I Found Out That My Boyfriend Is Going to Propose"

This question is from a Group Therapy post in our TrèsSugar Community. Add your advice in the comments!

My boyfriend and I have been dating for three and a half years. We are both in our late 20s. I recently found out that he bought an engagement ring to give to me (he had it custom designed by a jeweler who is a close friend of the family), and I am so beyond excited. I love him to death and I am so happy that he is ready to take this step with me. The problem is now I am expecting him to propose, and every time we go to our favorite restaurant or some romantic place, when he doesn't propose I am left very disappointed.

I don't know how to stop feeling this way. I cannot trick myself into forgetting about it and I just keep getting upset, even though I don't want to. I know I should just wait, but what if it takes him a few months to get up the courage? I know plenty of guys who have had the ring a long while before proposing . . . He's not going to EVER propose if I keep getting upset every time he takes me on a nice date! Should I just tell him that I know? I feel like that would upset him and take a lot of the fun out of it for him.
