Dear Maura,

I got engaged in February but I still don’t have a ring. My fiancé is into cycling which he only started this year and claims that the bike and his gear are costing him a fortune.
 
He said he proposed because he knew that I was hoping he would. It’ll take a few months to save up for it. He’s doing a lot of overtime. I’m fed up with people asking me to show them my ring.
 
Maura says: You missed out on the romance of your boyfriend handing you the little box with the ring and putting it on your finger.
 
Did you give him lots of hints or what was it that made him feel he had to propose without the ring? It makes no sense. Let him buy you a substitute ring until he gets you the real deal.
