Hello, this is my first time to this site, and I was hoping for some input from all the ladies here.
My boyfriend is a wonderful man, and I recently discovered he’s planning on proposing to me on xmas. I know how, when, and with what ring. I’m anxious and slightly disappointed I found out, and it’s only 18 more days away! I’m scared I took away the excitement and surprise out of the proposal..I know I can’t tell him I found out, and to possibly change it…What should I do? Any advice is sooo greatly appreciated..!

Just fake it! I’m sure that you will still be shocked and happy when it happens!

Welcome to the Hive.
You didn’t ruin it. You will have the same flood of emotions as you did if you didn’t know. The emotions that will flood into your brain will wipe out any pre-knowledge that you had. You will just as excited and happy as if you never knew.
Good Luck and YYYYYAAAAYYYYY!

If I were you, I’d just hang tight and enjoy the anticipation and the last few days of being a g/f! I agree with @tksjewelry: you will still be overcome by emotion. I knew exactly when my proposal was coming and I was still over the moon.
Congratulations! Don’t forget to tell us all about it when it happens–and show us ring porn! 🙂

The one thing you won’t know is what he’s going to say, and that is way more powerful than the ring/location/etc.
The same thing happened to me, I found out when my husband was going to propose and I knew exactly which ring (since I picked it out myself!). In the end, seeing him so full of love and emotions, hearing the words he chose to express him wanting to spend the rest of our lives together, I was moved to tears myself.
Consider it as a good thing because then you can be sure to look absolutely breathtaking that day! Congrats and good luck!

The same thing happened to me, but since I already peaked at the ring and he was really upset, I told him the truth! I wanted to be surprised, and I also had to because I was going out of town for Christmas… so hopefully it will be coming in the next couple of weeks Congrats!

I think I might have given it away that I know. He’s not giving ANY of the signs a guy normally does before he’s going to propose…I’m starting to think I might have been duped!

@laurana: I don’t think there are signs. I had NO CLUE my FI was about to propose the night we went out. He was cool and calm the whole time.

If it makes you feel any better, I knew all the details too ! At first, I felt as you did but then I knew he was proposing “some time soon” so it was never a total surprise. I made it work to my advantage. I made sure I wasn’t in a lousy mood or cranky mood that day and I made sure to dress extra special. And as PP said, I cried when it did happen.
I also knew hubby prided himself on “surprising” me. There’s no way I would break his heart and tell him the truth !

Your probably just worrying it wont happen cause you really want it, I agree with the other ladies you’ll still have that moment you’ve dreamed of and so will he try not to give it away anymore cause he might change when so as you don’t expect it thats what my fiance did except he did it the day before my birthday good luck!
