AHHH! I found the ring box when I was looking in his closet for a pair of shorts I’ve lost! I picked it up and then immediately put it away. I don’t know what to do! The anticipation is killing me! What if the proposal is months away, how am I supposed to resist peeking for that long? But if the proposal is soon then I’ll be mad I didn’t wait.
I already know what make and model it is (moissaniteco.com eng161 cushion cut 2.2 carats) so I’m not going to be really surprised anways. But still, maybe I should hold off?
Okay, maybe I should try it on for just a couple minutes…or hours? 🙂
What to do???? Honestly ladies, would you be able to resist if you were me??

@Azalea_Bee: I think I’d tell FI and ask if you can peek. He could get really mad if he finds out!

WAIT! I already know my exact ring and have seen online photos, but have not seen the finished product yet. I’m in the same boat, waiting for the proposal now that he has the ring, but honestly, I think seeing the ring in person for the first time will take your breath away. And I just think of it like this: he’s going to be the first person to see that!

Don’t do it!!! Don’t ruin it for yourself! Just wait, I’m sure you’ll thank yourself when he asks since the moment will be so surprising and special. If you peek, you may feel guilty the moment he proposes as you to to act surprised by the ring instead of truly being surprised and seeing it for the first time 🙂

Definitely don’t do it!! I was completely speechless when I saw my ring for the first time. It’s worth the wait 🙂

Absolutely peek…………….I did 😉
ETA: I picked my own ring so it wasnt ruining any surprise AND he told me he’d bought it AND was SOOO cocky he’d hidden it well that he said “go ahead and try it on….if you can find it, which you won’t” 😉

My FI wanted me to look at my ring since it was moissanite and i wasn’t sure if I’d like it, and he knew he was going to propose after the return period… So I got to look at it and try it on, but no pics! I think you should try to work out a similar deal so you don’t lose any money if it isn’t perfect. 😉
ETA: my FI did want to see my face when I saw it the first time, so maybe factor that into your decision. I cried when I saw how beautiful it was. 🙂

@Scorpio88: Agree with you, even if I voted to post pics. XD
Do you want to be surprised? I think it’s a different ball game when he proposes. Even if you’ve seen it online, to me, there’s nothing like that moment when he puts it on your finger. Some people value it, some feel meh about it. Depends on your preference.

You can’t peek!!!! Because when he pops the question, he’ll be looking at your face for a reaction! Guys NEED that over the top joyful reaction, or they pout!

Oh em gee – I just know I would peek. I would try to be mature, I would talk myself out of behaving badly…..but I would look I wouldn’t look….maybe.

Wow, I don’t know how you ladies do it, the ones who know the ring is “somewhere.” I’d be going nuts!

No no no., Don’t peek. He showed me the ring before. It took away from the moment, honestly. Seeing it online having it on is different. Tell him you stumbled on the box, but didn’t open it and ask him to re-hide it. Or maybe he’ll propose sooner.

sit.on.your.hands. Incredibly hard to do, but well worth it.

@Azalea_Bee: DON’T DO IT!!! Stay strong, you want the proposal to be the best it can be, emotionally, for the both of you. I’m trying my hardest not too peek right now too, I know where the box is and SO is out golfing so I’m home alone. I asked him if he was going to hide it from me in case I peeked – he said no he wouldn’t, because if I did, it would be my problem! I realized he was right, I’d just be ruining it for myself. Gahhhhh….it’s hard though!!
