I like the 'year and a day' arrangement.

Same, not as predictable and the 1 year anni. Mine was given to me on a totally random day and I loved it being given unpredictably.

My Man and I never went the Promise Ring route. We dated, had an Open Relationship, and then we when knew it was right, we got engaged.

I don't quite understand what the Promise Ring is for? Is like a "Pre-Engagement" ring that the kids in my High School used to give each other? I'm not familiar with the concept. What does it mean, that dating or engagement doesn't cover?

It's sort of like... a promise to get engaged (and thereby married) down the road. Or, you could think of it like an engagement ring without the hassles of starting to plan a wedding until both people are ready.

I'm with P'Gell, what is a 'Promise Ring'? I thought it was the stuff the Jonas Brothers wore when they swore no sex before marriage?

If the plan is to someday get married, I think an engagement ring is the way to go. There is no rule that you have to start planning your wedding immediately. I didn't even think wedding until more than three years after I got engaged.

I picked after graduation for a variety of reasons. The most prominent being that it is my personal preference not to get married or engaged on holidays---personal or otherwise. I just think it would mean more if she didn't see it coming and if it was an actual engagement ring. After being together for four years a promise ring...seems um...redundant?

I'm not a big fan of promise rings. It's just one more thing to buy to "prove your love". I'd suggest just saving up for an engagement ring if you're really that serious.

Definitely the year and a day. Give her something nice on your anniversary but then totally top it on her B-day with the promise ring.

Basically, we live together. And we are starting to really think about the future but not to politically attached in the sense of marriage and baby stuff. Just promise for US, as a couple that we are willing to go through all the political and baby stuff in the future and we will work as a team when we do get to that point....not just jump at it without being on the same path.

If you're both ready I think anytime is right

Personally, I would say anniversary. It is more expected I suppose, but her birthday should be about her, not about you guys as a couple.
Whatever you choose, good luck and congratulations!

They aren't really my thing, I guess my mindset is a bit more traditional in calling it an engagement ring, but however you guys want to express commitment and love is awesome! Best of luck and happy thoughts!

I agree with this. Wait till you are ready to get married and pop the question.

I agree with this, but I know your mileage my vary, and all that jazz.

But, I hope it all worked out for you.

I'm with the group who doesn't understand/like promise rings. I guess if you insist on getting one, I would go with the anniversary.

anniversary sounds like a good time but it also depends on how far the relationship has developed

I am still confused. So it's, like, going steady?
