I don’t tolerate teasing about gifts. It isn’t nice and it isn’t cute. If you can’t keep a secret, then tell me and ruin the surprise or give it to me now, but don’t taunt me with it because I didn’t ask you to get me a gift and it’s supposed to be because you wanted to give it to me from the goodness of your heart.

Sorry, this is a huge pet peeve. My mom always did this when I was a kid and I really can’t stand it.

Ugh i think the guys live for the teasing part.  IT does sound like something is up!! It’ soooooooo hard not to get excited.   I would be jumping up and down.. of course when i was ALONE so the “normals” dont think i’m weirder then they do already!  Good LUCK!!!

Ughh I hate when my husband does this! I can completely understand why you’d think it’s a ring. Especially since he’s spending this much money on your house UNLESS he does in fact want to make it official. Just don’t torture yourself TOO much. I would just enjoy the fantasy of thinking it COULD be a ring but not too much, because you may be disappointed when it’s not. I hate this for you though πŸ™ I hate teasers! πŸ™‚

But it sounds like you have a great man πŸ™‚

WOW he’s really mysterious.  I would say it sounds to me as if it is something to be excited for!  If not make him move out.  J/K!!! TOTALLY kidding.  No seriously, that is odd hints, something you will love, and wear, and wouldn’t tell you about the gift so he must have gotten a ring from grandma.  GOOD LUCK can’t wait to see what it is!

I don’t understand why guys feel that teasing is the greatest thing when it drives us NUTS!  My guy has been teasing me and it’s really irrating.  His point has been he likes to torture me.  One of my best friend’s thinks it’s hilarious!

I’m just confused by the “versitile and sexy” hints, as you said, these don’t quite sound like a ring.  I dunno, I hope it’s a great surprise, just do your very, very best not to pin ALL your hopes on it being a ring (hard, I know) so whatever it is you can appreciate it and enjoy the holiday without deeling disappointed or sad.  Just being Devil’s Advocate here – had many a disappointment on this count, and I hate to hear anyone else have that, “oh, a scarf.  Thanks!” and then go off to cry first opportunity kind of Christmas.  Alos, I think after reading on this site for a while, that most guys don’t realize quite how much we waiting women have “rings on the brain”, and that we hope for one almost around every corner – hence the teasing.

I hope it’s a ring, but you never know! There are SO many things it could be, especially since he’s bought you that dress.lol

 I usually hate teasers, but I just realized, from reading this, I tease with gifts!SurprisedLOL It’s fun though! Not harm, just fun. πŸ™‚

FI and I always give hints like this for gifts. We make a big thing about keeping gifts secret until Christmas/Birthday/Anniversay etc., but we always give obscure hints to lead each other in the right direction.

Try not to get your hopes up though! The hint thing as backfired on me before. One year (before we were engaged) he said, “it’ll match something you already have,” and “it’s really pretty.” Thinking that because he just bought me a promise ring it would match that I automatically had it set in my head that I was getting diamond earrings….WRONG! lol It was a sterling silver bracelet that matched heart shaped earrings I already had. I was let down, but hey it was my own fault! What concerns me about your hint is the word “versatile.” hmmmm…

When I got my engagement ring for Christmas last year it was a little more obvious. FI would say, “this is going to be a really special Christmas,” or “you’re one spolied girl.” He even went as far as to say, “this Christmas I’m going to show you how much I love you.” Obviously the surprise was taken away a bit by that one!! lol.

Good luck to you though! Fingers crossed πŸ™‚

I have to admit, both my SO and I looooove doing this to each other! We always give at least 2 clues. I am excited for you! I thought this sooo many times, and was wrong πŸ™ but I’m expecting it in the next couple of weeks, so I’m not too worried. How exciting for you, I hope it’s a ring!!

I’m thinking it’s a ring. Boys love to tease their girls and keep us guessing! πŸ™‚
