@Meant2Bee:  Distract yourself! Also do you really want to ruin it? It would feel worse then… you love your SO and you want him to be able to surprise you. This is the biggest surprise of his life so dont snoop and take that away from him!

I know how hard it is..its terrible! Paint your nails so you cant look for anything while they are wet.   You got this!

Really?  Think about all the hard work he is going to put into picking out the perfect ring, thinking up a proposal, and then going through with it…do you want to ruin that???  Chill out and appreciate the fact that you have a great guy who you are going to marry.

Noooooo snooping!!!  You will drive yourself crazy AND ruin the suprise.  At least you know what his intentions are, but if he is waiting until the perfect moment-you might be waiting on that ring for 6 more months ๐Ÿ˜‰

I agree with the nail painting ๐Ÿ™‚

If all fails. Pinch yourself really hard when you get the need to do so!

We have big personal closets in our APT (which i love) and whenever I open his closet to put away a pair of jeans or hang up a shirt I always tell myself, “It could be in here. You would never know.”

Even though I know he hasn’t bought it yet.

I hope i don’t turn into a snooper when the time comes.

You need to get yourself under control honey, because if you do ruin the surprise, which you kind of already have…you’ll never forgive yourself.  Take a walk, eat a sandwich, watch a show, call your Mom and stop it already, this is insanity!

Yes, you CAN stop snooping; you just make the conscious decision not to.  Which is a shame because I’d imagine your boyfriend would be really disappointed if/when he finds out.

I can vouch for the painting your nails to keep the snooping crazies at bay. Since SO left his email open two weeks ago I’ve known the ring’s in the house. Sometimes he works afternoon shifts or weekends and the temptation is HUGE when he’s not in the house to catch me Tongue Out So I distract myself with nail polish. And we’re talking about letting 5 coats of polish dry, that can take some time!


Plus, when he finally does pop the question I’ll have lovely, long nails! (Normally I bite them, so it’s two birds with one stone)

@Meant2Bee:  Please take it from me and STOP SNOOPING NOW!

  I found out *almost* everything. I know he will have the ring in hand on Oct. 1st. I know he is probably going to propose on our vacation ( oct. 5-8th) But I don’t know what the ring looks like. I think I know because I’ve given him ideas on what I like but I don’t actually know.

  Anyway. I feel kind of horrible that I snooped and found that. But honestly I thought he was cheating on me or something bc he was being sooo sneaky! But when I found all this out I just felt like a big ass.

@Meant2Bee:  I can understand wanting to know more.  I am still waiting and we are approaching his deployment so I keep wondering if he will make me wait until he returns- I hope not ๐Ÿ™ !  However, I do’nt get tempted to snoop much since we each have our own cell phones and separate computers.  I can’t accidently find out anything, especially since we do most of our “privatework” on our work computers, completely unaccessible from one another. 

Be strong! Hopefully it won’t be too much longer ๐Ÿ˜€
