I told a few people, close friends and a couple of co-workers. I ran into one girl I know while ring shopping, so I kind of had to tell her.

Ooh this is a handy topic – we are going ring shopping in a few weeks and I am so excited!! hard to keep my mouth shut but I really should considering it doesnt mean we will be engaged anytime soon!

Nope haven’t told anyone, not even my mum! 

I want to make sure the engagement is as special as it could possibly be and I think people would be expecting it too much if I said we’d been ring shopping

Just my opinion! Laughing

I told no one but my mother, who I’m sure told my dad. I didn’t want to tell a single friend, because I knew if I did they would be expecting to hear about a proposal soon after, and I didn’t want to look like a fool if it never happened. I didn’t mind waiting, but somehow waiting is harder when others are waiting with you!

We are starting to ring shop now (yay!) and I told one of my best friends. I might tell a few other close friends and I might not. We have been together for so long that people expect us to get engaged so I want to keep it kind of quiet about when it might happen.

I told my best friend and my roommate (we didn’t actually go ring shopping, he told me to send him ideas). We agreed when we would get engaged and he asked me not to tell people. I think it everyone is expecting us to get engaged on our vacation, but I don’t want to jinx myself if something happens.

the first time we went, I told a good friend… I didn’t tell my parents right away because I wasn’t sure how they would react. They love Fiance and everything, but don’t think they thought we were talking about engagement, so I didn’t want to catch them off guard. I ended up telling my mom a little while later, and then Fiance talked to them again to ” ask their permission” before proposing.

I went with two of my best friends to go ring shopping.  They knew he was buying the ring (as did I), but no one knew when he would propose.  My friend who went with me ring shopping actually got a bit drunk that night and told everyone where we had gone that day.  Most women would probably be upset about it, but I was THRILLED because it meant I could talk about it with my friends and not to have to bring it up myself.  My now Fiance didn’t know we were all talking about it, but I got to get it off my chest!  He proposed 1 week later 🙂

When me and Fiance went ring shopping I told nobody. After 6 months I was kinda forgetting what I had picked out anyway. I kept saying to myself there was no point telling people as the surprise would be taken away later on, so glad I didn’t. Our families were really happily surprised 🙂

I told my mom about it cuz I was too excited to keep to myself!! But I also knew the engagement was going to be soon so I wasn’t worried about it being months and months. We bought a house together and I told him we had to be officially engaged before I would “officially” move in! 🙂
