I don’t really consider myself “waiting” because although we have discussed marriage and know that it’s in our future, I feel like the $ is just not there right now for a ring and we’ve agreed that we’d rather buy a home first.
BUT, I just logged onto our laptop and he left the browser open to Blue Nile and there was an engagement ring on the page! This is totally an accident because his friend unexpectedly stopped by at the same time I walked in from work and they just left to hang out a bit. I think it just slipped his mind.
I really don’t want to get excited but now I am! I didn’t even think he would be shopping. There is one issue though. (Snob Alert) The ring on the page had a princess cut center stone and I really don’t like princess cuts. Those and emerald cuts are probably the only cuts I don’t prefer. Should I hint around and if so, any ideas on how to do that without blowing my cover?
I have given him very few guidelines and a few pics but he really wants to pick the ring himself and I would like to be surprised too.
