I know that the ring is in our house. When I first joined I saw some stories from Bees that had found their rings hidden and maybe wish they hadn’t. So if you were in my situation… what would you do? (Or what would you want to do?).
I helped pick out the ring so I know what it looks like but it’s been several weeks at this point since I saw it. I would loooove to see it again. I only have a couple pictures we took in the store that I keep looking at. But, spoiler alert: I am 99.99% sure I will wait to be surprised to see it again when he so chooses. The anticipation is delightful! (Or, as Oscar Wilde puts it… “The suspense is terrible. I hope it lasts.”)

Oh hell no. There honestly isn’t an ounce of me that wants to look. It would disappoint the both of us, I wouldn’t be as surprised if I saw it. If I accidentally stumbled across it I wouldn’t open the box. I’d tell him I found it though. I could never not be honest with him. He’d see straight through me anyway.

Nope. Didn’t look….I didn’t want to ruin the moment of seeing my actual ring for the first time. To me that’s a great moment to share with your SO, and it’s pretty crummy to take it away bc you have no self-control…

I didn’t! We picked out my ring together and he didn’t really ‘hide’ it….he put the whole package on the top shelf of his closet in plain sight. I jokingly told him that he’d have to put it in a better hiding spot in case I was tempted to peek, and he said “if you look, you’ll just be ruining it for yourself”. He was totally right and that stopped me completely from peeking. I would have been ruining a moment not just for myself, but for him as well.

I was in your exact same position! My SO had picked up the ring that we designed together and I knew that it was in the house for a while before he proposed. I won’t lie – I was definitely tempted but there’s no way I would have actually peeked! I knew how much Fiance loves surprises and I knew that peeking at the ring before the proposal would hurt his feelings. Besides, I wanted the magic of seeing the ring for the first time when he got down on one knee and opened that little box! 🙂

I would look so thank goodness I don’t remember the code to the safe!! I would ruin the surprise otherwise.

Yes, I would totally peek. I am far too impatient for surprises. I’m not all that sentimental about rings or proposals, so I don’t feel like anything was ruined that I knew what the ring looked like and the propsal was coming, though

Honestly I probably would look and then regret that I ruined the surprise but I have no self control

Haha, it’s funny how tempting it is right? I guess there’s a certain excitement both to looking and waiting… and depends on the person! For me, I’ll always remember how I kind of felt I ruined a christmas as a young child when I found and peeked at my presents one time… no surprises left on christmas morning and I never did it again!
Here, there’s not much surprise since I know the exact ring we picked out. But he admitted he also has not looked at it since leaving the store – and is kind of tempted to – but I think so far he has waited and wants to wait until we are together. So that is another special circumstance for us that keeps me waiting.

I would look, I’m so impatient lol. But my Fiance would hide it somewhere he’d know I’d never look. I couldn’t tell you where he hid my Ering!

I wouldn’t look, but I love surprises. I was never the kid who went searching for my birthday or Christmas gifts either – I wanted to be surprised on the day! Plus – isn’t the anticipation great?
