Has anyone ever gone snooping around for the ring or evidence of a proposal coming?
In the beginning of my wait – during my crazy days, I would snoop around looking for evidence SO bought the ring. I know it sounds horrible! I never found anything and I always felt horrible about it, because I knew if I found anything I would probably hate myself – and it would make the wait more unbearable!
Recently my friend asked me when I think he will propose and when I said I had no idea – she asked me if I go snooping around to see if he bought the ring yet – and then started to give me pointers – lol.
Anyways – have any of you done this – or am I the only one??!!!

No, you’re not the only one 🙂 Guilty here. I’ve checked his browser history. Bad, girl, I know. Maybe I deserve a spanking.

Also guilty! Although I’ve learned my lesson as far as internet snooping goes… instead of ring evidence I found his “secret” porn stash, lol! So then I was in the process of turning the house upside-down looking for physical evidence and he caught me!! I admitted to him what I was doing and he said, “I know you too well. If I have anything that’s a suprise for you, it’s not gonna be in the house!” Sneaky boy…

I haven’t searched his computer – but I don’t think he’d leave any evidence on it since I have access to it.
@AmyDee: SO knows I’m a snooper too. Well, he hasn’t caught me snooping for the ring, but he leaves xmas/bday gifts at his Moms house! He know’s I’ll go looking for them. So I’m pretty sure he wouldn’t leave the ring in the house somewhere. But I went through his wallet in case he had a reciept or something for it – didn’t find anything though….

:-/ I did it as soon as we talked about marriage. I soon stopped because I wanted to be surprised! My little sister gave it away anyways, but at least I tried.

I haven’t. I’ve thought about it, but one it seems like an invasion of his privacy and two I’d rather have the whole thing be a surprise. I’ve already had to wait longer than I think most people would (coming up on 7 years now), and that has already taken the shine off a potential engagement. I’d hate to ruin the other part which would be the surprise factor of it.
(On the other hand if he didn’t want it to be a surprise I think I’d be fine with that too–just going ring shopping together, etc.)

I haven’t snooped, but my bf is OVERLY protective of his phone for some odd reason. I know he’s not cheating, but if I’m playful and use his phone or have to (cause he’s driving) he becomes really anal about me not seeing the pictures.
It makes me worry, but I won’t snoop. I trust him.

I’m married but I do have to comment on this post. I knew I was getting engaged as I designed my ring but I had no clue when it would be done, aka when he would propose. I knew his online banking password and every day I was beyond tempted to see if the money was gone. I fought it on a daily basis, but in the end I never did snoop because I knew I coudn’t fake being surprised for the proposal if I already found out. Those were some long couple of months!

I’ve snooped but it was very half-heartedly because 1) I knew there was nothing to find and 2) I didn’t really want to find it because I want more for it to be a surprise. I can’t fake surprise, or any emotion for that matter, so it has to be a genuine surprise. I also snooped his web history to see if he’s been searching for E-rings or anything, but we both use Google Chrome and it has an Incogito Window you can use that won’t save to your browsing history or anything you type. It’s how I look on weddingbee so he doesn’t find out about it so I would assume that’s how he would search for an Engagement Ring.

I did- because he was acting weird the day he proposed. I thought he didn’t have the money for a ring but he ended up acting weird so I started feeling around his clothes and found a ring box in his pocket. Went from thinking nothing at all to nauseous because it was real that he was going to do it.

i want to snoop sooo bad! my boyfriend got the ring last week and i know he has it. he came home from mysteriously needing to get gas in the car with a small ring box shape in the chest pocket of his coat. (haha!) he knows i know, but now i don’t know where he hid it. one day when he wasn’t around i went to his coat and felt the box through the fabric, my heart started to race because i came to the realization “wow! this is it!! this is my ring!” now i’m just dyingggggggggggggg to know when he’s going to pop the question. i’ve told myself i can’t go snooping for the ring anymore, because i don’t want to have already seen it before he wishes me too. i’m so bad at putting on a poker face anyways, so he’d know in a second that i had already seen it. *sighh*

I’m trying SO hard not to snoop. I have a feeling that I am in the presence of diamonds as we speak…It’s no easy task, girls! I totally understand.
Post # 14
Hahaha, isn’t it funny how us women can sniff out a diamond from a mile away?
P.S., I LOVE your avatar, it’s so cute!

I was definitely a snooper. However, I started snooping too early. Then, when he actually starting doing things (like going to stores, buying the ring…. etc…) he was not good at covering his tracks and left evidence in plain sight. Ex. Business cards on his kitchen table, a reciept in his shorts pocket in the laundry – which he washes at my house. Dumb boy haha
So, I definitely knew it was coming, but he still surprised me because it happened so quickly. I thought he was going to hang onto the ring longer than he did.

When I suspected it was coming, I snooped, and this is what I found…
Needless to say, I think he wanted me to snoop. He was pretty proud of himself for pranking me like this. 🙂
