@gangqinjia:  DON’T DO IT! 🙂 Take a couple deep breaths and then find something to do.. retail therapy always works or something that involves not being at home or lots of energy. You will be so much happier if you don’t look! In fact I would delete the auto-fill info so that you can’t possibly log in.. haha

TELL HIM TO MOVE THE EMAIL TO A DIFFERENT FOLDER! He doesn’t have to make it too easy for you, especially if you guys want to keep the supprise.

BUT WOOHOO for knowing!

Don’t do it! My BF offered to show me my ring if i really wanted but I didn’t have him show me bc I knew he really wanted it to be a surprise. I have even come across the box itself AND there is a pic on the jeweler’s blog. But it gets easier to resist as time goes on and I’m so glad I have because it is important to him. You can do it! Stay strong!

Don’t don’t don’t! You’ll  so regret it. The guilt will eaaat at you! You want to be genuinely surprised!!! Tell him you’re struggling and to temporarily change his password!! Okay lady?!

NO!!!! DON’T DO IT.  I am telling you right now. No, not telling.  DEMANDING that you don’t look.  I want to know too but it will be worth the wait!

Every time you want to look slap a rubberband on your wrist! haha

Goodluck!

Don’t do it!!!! The surprise will be amazing!! That’s so exciting!

 

Side note – I have all of my SO’s logins and passwords as well (mostly because I was the one that made them, with the exclusion of his email) so it wouldn’t surprise me if one day my SO said something along the lines of “don’t look at my bank account” or whatever.

NO NO DON’T DO IT!! My SO did the exact same thing to me and I seriously almost had a heart attack. I couldn’t resist and took a peek and only saw the receipt. HE HAS IT, HE HAS IT! I begged him to change every single one of his passwords. ALL OF THEM. Because I couldn’t be responsible for a manics actions…just sayin’.

 

Stay strong! ALMOST THERE!

haha..I’m going to be the odd woman out and say DO IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You want to know if you need to fake an excited reaction or not!  If the ring is horrid, you want to be prepared.  

 

Hey, if he’s not swift enough to change his password, and then TELLS you what’s in his email, I think you can sneak a peek!  I totally support your snooping.
