Sooo my bf doesn’t know that I figured out his email password. One night he was being odd and was typing on the computer (hes not a computer person, and would never be typing anything) lol so that night I some how figured it out and got into his email! Found out he had emailed my cousin who has a jewelry store & everyone in our family goes thru him. So I obviously got super super excited, I knew it would happen but couldn’t believe he was actually doing something about it! So then I decided no I’m not going to go into it again. ahh I can’t believed I snooped! I have gone into it a couple of times but the emails haven’t amounted to anything but I have decided that I’m going to ruin for myself if I keep looking and I don’t want to know anymore! Now I feel guilty and I feel like I ruined it but I still have no idea about the ring or when this will be happening! & I want to keep it that way!!! Any advice besides staying off his email!! lol and I’m never going to let him know that I knew anything!

You’re so bad! 🙂
You didn’t ruin it at all, but better stay away from that email from now on. It would be so sad if you did end up spoiling the surprise. If it were me, I would get him to change his password, just to keep me from doing it again. Maybe talk to him about how you read an article about password security and how “everyone chooses their pets name[or whatever he uses] and its super easy for spammers.”
I’m not above lying if it means the proposal stays a surprise!

So..FI accidentally sent me a text saying “What’s Jess’s ring size, I need to know.” It was SUPPOSED to go to my sister though. So I fantically called my sis and told her to pretend like she got it, blah, blah, blah.
Well she calls back and says he’s buying a PROMISE RING! I was devastated and couldn’t believe it. Later that evening, he went AWAL and I got even more curious. I checked his bank account and saw too large of a transaction for a promise ring.
I knew I was getting it and the wait killed me–you’re only hurting yourself right now. Lol. After he FINALLY proposed, I told him what I had done. We can joke it about it now and he says I have “trust issues” (jokingly).
STAY AWAY FROM THE EMAILS AND DON’T DROP ANY HINTS THAT YOU KNOW ANYTHING!! Guys work so hard on surprises and it will crush him if he knows you know something!

Don’t say a word! Seriously – I know it’s addicting, but stay out of that email! You could mention something like “Jeez I haven’t changed my FB password in forever” and maybe he’ll get inspired to change his email one.

Does he know you can and do get into his e-mail? I know SO’s password and such and I know that there is a lot of info. regarding engagement plans but I don’t think it’s okay to snoop behind someone’s back.
I signed onto SO’s account one time without him knowing and came clean about it right after. He was glad I was honest.
I’m no stranger to wanting engagement info (as you can see in my previous posts) but am I alone in thinking that the snooping isn’t ok? Especially if you’re not honest with him about it?

You were somewhat justified in that he was acting suspicious, but now that you know why (and that it wasn’t anything bad) you should STAY OUT. If he ever finds out you did that, he will probably be very angry.Plus, if you find out what the ring looks like, it’s going to be really hard to look surprised when he proposes. He’s going to know something’s up.
But like I said, just this once: not that bad. Enjoy knowing that you’ll be getting proposed to soon!

So my FI and my mom were e-mail back and forth about rings and such before FI bought mine. Apparently, an attachment got added at some point and so did a couple other people, one of which felt it necessary to forward it along to me without reading all of it. Needless to say, I knew about the ring long before I was supposed too. FI still has no idea.
