I never understand why people feel the need to make such remarks. She could have said it was lovely and you’ll have to wait to see it. Who wants to hear that it isn’t something they would have picked out? Cringe. Just keep focus on the fact that he will be proposing soon!! Yay!

I’m sure you will be thrilled with it! It is so cute that he picked it himself and is in love with it. That’s what matters. He found a ring that he loves, and he picked it out for YOU!

Ugh, I hate that.

My FI asked my SIL and BFF if he should propose while my dad was in town and she TOLD ME he was going to. 🙁  I really wish it had been a surprise. I will NEVER tell FI that she spoiled his surprise. But I just dont’ get why she couldn’t keep it quiet. 🙁

Trying to be positive here. Maybe he took your taste into consideration when he purchased it, as you said you have ring shopped together previously. I think it’s rather sweet of your future fiancé that he did it on his own and I hope you love it for that reason alone. 

PS. You can always upgrade/reset at a later date? Ive been married many years and have had quite a few. Lol congratulations on your upcoming proposal.

Sorry, I read your post too quickly and then responded in an all-about-me way. You won’t be disappointed when he proposes!!! I think it’s lovely that he picked it out on his own! 🙂

I really feel for you I bet you’re feeling really anxious waiting for the proposal and to see the ring. I don’t know why she told you that how thoughtless. Well you can join my club. My mum told me that my FI was going to propose. she just came out with it one day but she knew she shouldn’t be telling me. I’m not sure why she did, I guess she was excited. I don’t think I will ever tell FI I think he’d be pretty mad. 

 

She also told me a stone size that was a whole carat over what I actually got. She doesn’t understand carat sizes so that’s probably where the mistake came from. But for me it ruined everything because rather that the proposal being a surprise I knew when it was happening so there was no surprise, I had to fake it which I found hard. FI has commented on my lack of enthusiasm but I was just so anxious. And the ring, well I’m happy now, but when you’re expecting a whole carat more…you can imagine. It left me feeling disappointed with the whole thing and sometimes it still upsets me. Not the diamond size, just that the surprise was spoilt. 

 

The he only advice I can give you is to try and focus on why you want to be engaged and your wedding and the future, if you hate the ring maybe FI will let you change it. But you never know, you might love it. Sorry this probably hasn’t helped but just so you know someone knows how you feel x
