    I didn’t know he had the ring until he proposed! But if I were you, I’d just keep quiet. I wouldn’t even say anything if someone deliberately asks about it. 1) I wouldn’t wanna jinx it. 2) You don’t really know how long he’s going to wait, there are a lot of stories on the Bee about a guy holding onto the ring for like 6 months, 1 yr, etc. It would suck if you told people that he had the ring and then months pass with those same people bugging you, hey how come you’re not engaged yet, I thought he had the ring. Doh!

    I told a few people (friend, cousin, college roommate) Others knew that we had gone ring shopping but not that he had bought it. We’d been together 8 years, nobody was going to be shocked when I called to announce it anyways. It helped me a lot to be able to discuss it with other people without mentioning it to him. He got the ring in February, asked in April and I didn’t mention it once in that time period. I was discussing it with my sister and cousin so I got all my frustrations out elsewhere. I wasn’t really impatient though, I knew he wouldn’t hold on to it for a long time, we just had a lot going on in that time (new job, moving) so it was a bad time to be adding one more big change. I wouldn’t have told anyone I thought would share the information, though.

    I told a few people (including my mother) after we went ring shopping. We asked a lot of friends for jeweler reccomendations, so that wasn’t a big secret. I didn’t actually know once he had the ring, though.

    He, however, apparently told EVERYONE when he got the ring. He even took the ring to his family’s house on Thanksgiving before i got there to show them the ring. So, there I was, eating Thanksgiving with his family and they all knew what was going to happen in about a month. Lol!

    I told a group of girl friends (we have an online forum just for us). He held on to it for quite a while before the proposal which drove me insane. lol

    I told my parents, and they already knew a proposal was coming since DH had talked to them first.

    I only told my BFF when we went ring shopping.  I received my ring the same day it was ready, so I waited mostly until the next day to tell everyone!

    I didn’t tell a soul! Because I snooped and found it hidden in our home! I didn’t say anything because a) I didn’t know how long it would take him to propose, so telling bff would cause me more anxiety BC she would’ve asked e every day,and b) I honestly didn’t want anyone to know I snooped
