@SincerelyShe:  yeah he didn’t keep it up for long! But I did get my dream ring in the end, so who knows?

He busted me looking at Weddingbee a few weeks ago. I keep telling him stories (conveniently tweaked for my purposes) to say “ALL” the waiting bees are designing their own rings and know they’ve been purchased. It hasn’t worked yet. He is determined that I not know when he has or will order the ring.

@SomedaymrsWDS:  +1 I tried this bit too–‘All waiting bees get to pick out their rings or design their own’…..and this was followed by a long lecutre about how it’s the ‘man’s job’ to do this, to research the cut, color, clarity of the diamond, make this huge decision, then a bunch of follow up questions ‘Dont you like the jewelery I’ve gotten you?’ UGH….basically HE wants to be the one to pick ring lol!!

OP, @SincerelyShe:  I think it’s nice that you have your dream ring on your laptop, at least you are working on the law of attraction!!  I’m sure he will see the ring and get the hint lol!

Maybe you can say something like ‘All I want for Xmas is you’ and see if THAT helps him get the hint lol!!

@SincerelyShe:  

I was closing SO’s computer down one day when he left it open and noticed he saved a pic of my ring on his desktop… so I did him a ‘favor’ and added 3 more of different views (we’re getting it custom made) and a few days later he was chuckling and asked “I wonder how these additional pics got on my computer….”  hahah

@SincerelyShe:  

Lol! I did the complete opposite! I wanted the ring to be ENTIRELY his thing. He kept showing me pictures of rings and staring at me to see my reaction. I just remained poker face the whole time hehe.

I trusted his taste, he did good 😛

I confess to letting him know that I had recieved a Ben Moss coupon in the mail, and then grilling him as to why he was asking me for it (he ended up getting the ring elsewhere anyhow)

Before he proposed, I opened up my dream ring on his computer and left it up for him to discover… oops.
