My SO and I picked out a ring a few weeks ago. On Wednesday, my honey let it slip that he picked up the ring that day. Haha, he can’t keep a secret even for 6 hours. He teased me to not to go looking for it.
i am resisting, but I’m not sure if I still like the ring. I would like to try the ring on to see how it feels. I guess I am really impatient, and he is giving nothing about when he’ll propose. I hope he won’t wait a year. I would like a winter wedding, and that works with his school schedule.
i don’t want to annoy him, so I will try to stop asking about where he’s hidden it. Anyone else have this problem? Any suggestions on how to stop obsessing over where it is hidden?

@MysticPrincess1: Do you have a pic of it when you tried it on the first time?

Don’t do it
Even if you don’t like it anymore it’s too late now! It’s funny I’m sitting in the bedroom and SO just went out to grab us some food, I wasn’t thinking about the ring AT ALL until I read ths thread… now I’m tempted to look for the ring. Lol I know he has it hidden here somewhere, but I know he would be disappointed if I did that so I would never.
Hang in there, you will have it soon enough.

I was in a similar situation and I’ll be honest…I totally snooped, found the ring, and tried it on. We chose the ring together and he waited MONTHS to propose. After we got engaged I admitted that I’d snooped. It helped tide me over and let me get to confirm that i actually loved the ring (we ordered moissy online and I’d never actually seen one in person or tried on the ring!).
I don’t think it was a reallh big deal, but I also knew that my DH wouldn’t be upset about it if he found out.

Don’t do it! I ruin every surprise for myself and it sucks!

@MysticPrincess1: Don’t look!!! The surprise will be ruined if you find it, because then you’ll look at the ring itself. Refrain!! 😀

I’ll join the chorus of bees telling you to not look. Don’t obsess over it — just let it be. I talked about my ring so much that my FI gave in and let me wear it for months before he proposed, though I was only allowed to wear it at home. My proposal was still special, but there wasn’t a lot of joy about the ring. I was happy to be engaged, but the ring didn’t have much novelty to me anymore.

He proposed a week ago, and I loved the ring when I saw it again. You all were right. I’m glad I didn’t find it, not for lack of trying. I still need to ask where he hid it. I can’t help staring at it sometimes and watching it sparkle.
