I think you’re being overly dramatic. If you’ve talked about it before then it can’t be a toooootal surprise. And the situation just seems like something that couldn’t have been avoided – you weren’t snooping or anything! It’s okay to be a little bummed but I don’t think you should be feeling sick about it. You should be excited!

Just try to relax about it. You don’t know when or how he is going to ask, you don’t know what the ring looks like, or technically, if he even has a ring yet. There is more than enough that you don’t know to keep the important parts of the proposal a surprise for you. As you said, the two of you have talked about it, so it’s not completely out of the blue.

First off welcome to the Hive! :] I understand why you would be alittle bummed but like you said you are not sure of the when and how, so it is still going to be a big surprise :] I would just keep busy with hobbies, to get my mind of off it.

I think when it comes to important events such as proposals, we have it in our minds that the event has to be PERFECT and if it’s not perfect, then it’s disappointing. The little problems that cropped up while FI was planning the proposal are his favorite parts of the story–it makes it funnier to tell and emphasizes how hard he worked to make it romantic! 🙂

You haven’t ruined anything by seeing the text. For all you know, he may not have even purchased the ring yet and one of his buddies is just joking (my FI’s friends and family have been doing that since BEFORE we started dating!) so don’t assume anything. Still, don’t say anything to him about it or he might be upset that he has to start over or change his plans. You can’t un-see the text, but you can change the way you feel about it happening!
