Hi Bees! I’m new here but need to tell someone…! Long story short I know my BF is going to propose and I’m 99% sure it is happening on 5th December.
I know he ordered my ring beginning of November and we’ve just received a notification in the post box that a package has been delivered. I know he hasn’t done any Christmas shopping yet so I’m fairly sure it’s my ring.
He isn’t home from work yet but I’m SO tempted to go and get it… (Obviously I wouldn’t open it). It’s just so close…
What to do?! It’s torture!

Don’t go get it. Don’t even think about it. Leave the pickup card where he’ll find it and that’s all. If he thinks he’s slipping one by you he’ll be disappointed if you went and picked it up. Jewelry shipping isn’t like sex toy shipping, it’s not discreet. The package could say XYZ Jewelers as the sender right on it, and even though you “know” what it is, it’s still different than *knowing* what it is because you’ve seen the parcel.

I totally agree with kittycatpancake. I figure the less they know about what we know the better. Otherwise we disappoint them and they might want to make new plans too ..ie more waiting. Plus it is super cute to watch them try to be sneaky, at least my SO is. Lol.

Thanks ladies! He knows I know because he basically can’t keep a secret. I know he asked my mum for her blessing when she was visiting us last month and he took me out to look at rings a few months ago. He also said my birthday would be a great time to announce to people (in two weeks).
He just got home so I told him he had a package so he has gone off to get it…

Welcome to the bee. Do not ruin the surprise, just forget it was delivered and let him take care of it! It could potentially mess up the proposal plan then you’ll have to wait longer. Plus it’s only 10 days away!! How exciting!!

What does your future ring look like? Do you have the stock photos?

I saw him when he came in with the package. It’s an Amazon box. What an anticlimax!
Mrssloan2013, I’m not sure what the ring looks like. I think he’s having it specially made but he knows I would really like a rose gold halo :).

PrettyintheCity: Just try to resist the urge to look!
I didn’t think my fiance was going to propose even though he had asked for my ring size because we ahd only been together for eight months at the time. We had a group of friends over the night before he proposed and one of my friends told me about some of fiance’s “suspicious” behavior. They were telling me he was proably totally going to propose (I didn’t believe them) and even said jokingly that the ring was most likely in his golf bag or his sock drawer. Turns out he proposed the next day and he had brought the ring into the apartment in his golf bag and then kept it in his sock drawer. I was so happy that I did not snoop!
