    I only told my mom that he was bringing up the discussion of an engagement and let her know the day that we were looking at rings.  The proposal was a total surprise though.  We never discussed a timeline but I had a feeling he was going to do it before he deployed.

    Everyone, myself, family, and friends, were all waiting for it because we had been dating 7 years and had moved into a condo together already. It was only a matter of time.

    I told my two closest girlfriends right after he bought the ring (maybe like 2 weeks before the proposal?). I didn’t want to tell anyone else until it was “official”, but these girls are like my sisters and I was so excited, I just couldn’t keep it from them any longer! 😀

    I was pretty open about it as I hated waiting when we had already agreed that we were getting married.

    I have told me people we’ve decided to get married, which has been for at least 9 months now. I wish I hadn’t, honestly. My SO ended up having back surgery and it pushed things back a bit. Even though it was totally out of our control, I felt a little stupid about telling people. Now that he has the ring, it should be any day now and I feel fine telling people.

    If I had to do it all over, I’d keep my mouth shut!

    @PinkAndPearls2013:  Yes, this.

    They probably knew it was coming but I didn’t give them any details ahead of time.

    My Fiance and I had been serious for 2 years, and everyone knew we were planning to get married…it was just a matter of waiting to graduate from college!  So yeah, everyone knew it was coming, but none of us knew exactly when.  Honestly, I wasn’t expecting him to pop the question until December ’12 but he did it in June!

    I told my roommate and my best friend who also ended up telling another friend of ours. They all know I have a ring, and my best friend has even seen it (my SO wanted me to show her). I also told my SO’s sister, but that is mostly because we were discussing me immigrating to his country, so she asked, “Oh, does that mean wedding bells soon?!” My SO has also talked about it with his mum and dad.

    So in total three of my friends know, his parents, and his sister.

    I just felt that it wasn’t for me to share anything when I hadn’t been proposed to yet. I preferred to take a passive role during that time, I guess to give him room to do his thing.
