Well, I know us Bees are SUPPOSED to sit pretty and shut it up; but how much time do you others spend snooping around for ring clues?
Me and my SO have been looking at ring settings online together, and occasionally he forgets to clear his browser history. (We live together). I would never want to admit it, but I am ALL over that in the sneakiest ways. It’s like I’m a spy. Now that I know he has paid for.. something, I can’t help but keep an eye on the mailbox, waiting for signs of something being delivered.
Would you snoop? Or do you think it makes the waiting game worse?

Jessybel: I’m a big snooper at the best of Times especially around Christmas and my birthday! My problem is I hate surprises so being a snooper helps with that.

I don’t like surprises either. Ever seen that commercial where the guy is talking and specifically says ‘Good, because I don’t like surprises!’ Then walks into his apartment and they’re throwing him a surprise party and he let’s out a scared little girl scream? Yeah that’s me. Lol.
I can’t snoop really though. I know my ring isn’t in our house, its either at a bank vault or his parents or his office. And I haven’t reached that level of crazy to try and find it, haha. But whenever SO is tipsy and in a super good mood I’ll tease and prod at him about it to try and get hints. Which doesn’t work, because then he turns and says ‘Don’t take advantage of drunk people! That’s immoral!’ I don’t even think I can get serious hints anymore, I kinda just do it to annoy him for fun at this point.

Jessybel: the truth? More than I should. I don’t do it a lot. But I know I shouldn’t do it at all. I’ve previously (and know I will again) check his browser history and email to check progress. I’m not looking to find out what it’s going to look like, just when planning has started/it’s been made/dispatched
thefuturemrswindowcleaner: I’m exactly the same. I HATE surprises

Girl! i do it all the time.. I knew he was heading “somewhere” yesterday to work on engagement things… so i left his bank account open on my comp all day so i could see if he spent any money… sneaky booger must have paid cash cause i know he put a down payment on/ picked out/ etc.. the ring yesterday… cause well while he was sleeping i saw where he told his mom, but he was also cheesin like a mofo when he got to my house and was like “its so pretty youre gonna love it… you better *ugly* cry….oh and dont look at my phone…”

I’m a horrible, awful person. I knew he was messaging his buddy from college (one I hadn’t met). I’m so crazy, I took a look through his messages one day because I was curious how he spoke about me to his buddy. And there I saw it: “I got a keeper now. Prob going to pop the question this summer.”
I was escatic, of course, but I also feel terrible because I wasn’t supposed to see that.
I also overheard him calling his closest buddy the other day, and when the convo turned to “how’s your girl doing”, he said “great… she just moved in…” then he took the conversation in the other room and closed the door… so I knew something was up! But I didn’t want to ruin anything more for myself, so I ran upstairs and did a crazy-happy-dance and tried not to obsess…
If/when I think he has the ring, it’s going to take all of me not to snoop — but I don’t want to because I don’t want to ruin the surprise — or worse, have him know that I know, because I know he’s planned it this way (to be a surprise)!

I never ever snooped for anything – ering, Christmas presents, etc. I like surprises 🙂
He ‘hid’ my engagement ring in his nightstand for a couple months and I never knew cuz I never go through his stuff. I’ve never checked his phone, bank account, anything.

Never. I feel like because we have a timeline now, I don’t want him to even let slip that he is planning to purchase the ring and propose. I want it all to be a huge surprise.
I don’t want any give aways at all! 🙂

I casually snoop on his phone. I’m too anxious and excited to wait — but I’d also have regrets if I found what I was looking for. I don’t want to ruin my surprise, but at the same time, I’m like a kid on Christmas eve, I just want to know! Ugh.

I don’t snoop at all, honestly. I wouldn’t like my SO to be checking my browser history or going through my phone and stuff- even if it was something as innocent as being a big kid curious about a present. I don’t have anything to hide, I just wouldn’t like it & so I wouldn’t do it to him.

I know my FI picked out the ring, and it’s KILLING me not knowing what color stone he got me 🙂 Time for some snoop snoop snooping.

southsun: HAHAHAHAHA this reminds me too much of me and my BF! He got really drunk and I was prodding him and he said “nope. Drunk me will not tell you anything because sober me would not like that.” I then talked to him the next morning and asked him if he remembered the conversation (which he didn’t). He thought it was hilarious that drunk him was so good at keeping secrets!
I snoop more than I would like to, I’m just so tired of waiting!

I love surprises and I have a timeline, but I don’t want to know when he gets the ring or when it’s going to happen. We’ve already looked at rings and I have found one that I adore! Sometimes I’ll ask him questions like “have you told anybody about the proposal?” Or “do you know when you’re going to do it?” (The answer to both questions is yes). Sometimes he’ll torture me with vague answers. It’s a love-hate thing.

I snooped and found the ring box (I didn’t peek at the ring) I legit sat on the floor with it in my hand and just repeated OMG for a good 5minutes. My guess is that he will propose in March on our 3yr dating anniversary

nope, not really a snooper. i’ve been really trying to keep my mouth shut!
