I have given my SO ideas on my ring and left it at that. I want this to be a surprise from him. Please act surprised. I think he would be devastated to know that looked through all of that stuff to find the ring/information.

Why did you snoop? You ruined it for yourself. Try to act surprised and dont repeat this to anyone else.

Very few proposals are surprises from what I have read. There is not much you can do about it at this point. I see no reason to tell him and ruin his moment, though. You will be engaged, which is what really matters.

“By looking through bank accounts, snooping through drawers and phones” Seriously? Unless he knows you go through his things like this, you have boundary issues.

I knew the day it was going to happen. I was still thrilled and surprised when it actually happened. You will be too.

@curiousbride2b:  You didn’t “find” the ring.  You purposely looked for it.  I would be extremely pissed if someone looked through my things like that.

I would be upset if I knew he was looking through my stuff like that. I have nothing to hide, but it would seem untrustworthy and just downright crazy if he was doing that.

I thought I felt guilty for accidentally finding out that he bought the ring and which day it’ll be here. I let that go because it wasn’t in my hands, I never looked for the ring. Since I don’t know how exactly he’ll be proposing, it’ll still be a surprise.

Personally, I hate surprises. If it were up to me, I would want to be in on every detail. Luckily my boyfriend was willing to compromise with me. I got to pick out the ring and he told me that he will ask me sometime within the next 4 months. I know he was reluctant to even tell me that much. You got to pick out the ring. Leave the next part up to him!

Go on YouTube and search “Acting Lessons” so you can at least look surprised.

@curiousbride2b:  Lol curious indeed!

I wouldn’t do the over top pretending to be surprised thing, but I think this is one instance where you probably should keep your mouth shut. Even though you know it’s going to happen, I am sure that once it all comes together and you’re in the moment, it’ll still be magical and you’ll have a genuine reaction.

Unless he knows you really well and can tell you’ve been snooping, I would just keep that little detail to yourself.
