So here's an interesting little story:<br><br>
When my guy and I were getting ready to go to the gym, just before we left he commented on this moonstone ring we have on the windowsill:<br><br>
"Do you wear that ring often?" he asked.<br>
"Sometimes, it's a bit big though - the one in the bathroom by my necklace rack fits better. Why?" I say - leaving a trail of breadcrumbs.<br>
"Oh. Just curious."<br><br>
I then come home to find the rings have been moved - and he has the whole week off.<br><br>
Considering he has no interest in jewellery and he mainly likes to talk about sports etc.....Hmmmmmmm.....I wonder!!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/blush.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":eek:">

Moved a little or moved a lot?<br><br>
I'm VERY happy for you! But, keep in mind, it may not be THE ring. He might very well be looking into a because-I-love-you ring.<br><br>
Also, don't be discouraged if a lot of time goes by. I've known people who have to make a lot of payments before they can pick up the ring.<br><br>
Also... um... is he on VB? Is there any chance he might read your post?

The two rings changed places...and don't worry he only hangs out on sports message boards. lol<br><br>
I'm not in a huge panic over it. I'm just waiting patient to see what happens because he has been acting increasingly antsy one minute and lovey the next and it's quite hilarious. I like seeing him squirm. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">

Does he know your ring size though? Now he knows it's a little smaller than that ring, but if you know yours for sure you should find a reason to slyly mention what your exact size is lol. And lmao just like a man to forget which one goes where, i assume you didn't actually mention that they were switched?

Maybe he wanted you to put your ring away. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p">

Aww bless men aren't always so subtle. I remember my bf saying out of the blue "soooooo..... what size bra are you?" <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"> Subtle! I wonder what I'm getting for my birthday <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p"><br><br>
I hope it turns out as you want, but don't get your hopes up just incase <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br>
AlixJ18 I'm not sure how you could subtly tell someone your ringsize? It's not something that's ever come up in conversation for me! My mum measured mine in my sleep once when I was a kid so she could buy me a ring - that's crafty!

LOL, the one on the windowsill fits nicely, so I'd assume he does.

Identity, well at least he didn't go to the bra shop, look at other chicks boobs and do the 'hey, my girlfriend is about your size and I'm buying her some lingerie, what size do you take?" move.....my ex did that. I think some women were a bit uncomfortable in the store. lol

Take him shopping, drag him into a jewellery store, have your finger measured with him there. Say you're buying a ring as a present for a friend online, and you two have the same size finger, and you need to know what the technical sizing for the ring is so you can get the right one.<br><br>
...or something.

My husband did that to me before he proposed! He said he though for sure I had woken up during it and played along (I'm usually a light sleeper) but I had no idea. I thought it was a good idea...

For everyone concerned with him not getting exactly the right size, remember that rings can be re-sized after the fact. My rings all had to be re-sized, even the wedding band I picked out in the store. Sure, it's nice if it fits right away, because then you don't have to wait a week for it to be done, but if the size is off it can be changed.</div>
</div>
<br>
yeah, my engagement ring had to be resized. We bought it on vacation, they only had the one size (7, which is usually the sample size) and it was waaay too big.<br><br>
You may not even have to wait a week. I've had rings resized over lunch.
