So I feel horrible. Curiosity killed the cat. I have known that the ring is coming soon, but now i know EXACTLY when its coming because I snooped in his email and saw he purchased it and its on its way. AND i know the exact specifications. I am totally excited and have been KILLING myself with anticipation BUT he KNOWS i know. I feel HORRIBLE for ruining the surprise. I even know when he was expecting to give it to me! What do I do now? I have been awkwardly avoiding the subject but its totally the elephant in the room. How do I totally erase this from my memory. What do I do. Have any of you ever been in this situation? Also, related to this, clearly I have been driving myself insane with anticipation and curiosity to the point where I snooped through his emails and texts… like a crazy woman…. I jsut feel like i have been waiting for SOO long. I have been spending HOURS and HOURS on boards like these and pricescope and bluenile and pinterest looking at rings and trying to find an exact replica of what I want/am expecting. How do you guys deal with feeling crazy about this? Is anyone else feeling like a psycho woman because of the anticipation?
Thanks! Sorry to sound like a freak! xoxo

Shame on you! lol just kidding,, Curiosity gets the best of us, hell, it killed the cat 😉
If you are 100% positive he knows you know and knows you snooped, youd feel better (and so would he) if you told him a,d even apologized for ruining the surprise. Then you feel better, and less guilty, and he feels like even though his privacy was invaded, you did it out of love. I always feel better about something I’ve done wrong after confessing to it, even if the person knows. It may be super awkward when Im doing it, but in my experience things are a lot better afterwards.
But hey, who can blame you, rings are to die for, even more so when they’re yours 😉

Hilarious OP! It’s not that big of a deal really, it’s yours after all…you just don’t have it yet lol. I know everything about my ring….because I picked it out myself! Hours and hours of pricescope, weddingbee, truthaboutdiamonds, youtube, you name it. He’s had it since early June and the suspense makes me giddy/sick sometimes lol You just cope, distract yourself!
Since he knows you know, he’ll probably switch up the “when” so you’ll still be surprised 🙂
Congrats on the pending engagement!

@tigerbell: Pic of the ring? How did you find out when he’s planning on proposing?

@tigerbell: HAHAH! Why did you snoop omg. You should go get a hypnotist to make you forget what you saw.

@tigerbell: Aaahhh, something similar happened to me a coupe of nights ago. Except I wasn’t snooping, we were just both looking at his computer and there an email from my favorite jeweler was– I had to work so hard to control myself! I think he may have suspected I saw it though. I’d been planning to bring up stone choices that evening, and I didn’t manage to until after I’d seen the email!!!
It’s sooo exciting!
I do think if you are totally postive he knows you snooped, an apology is in order just to clear the air. He probably will change the timing of his proposal after this, but who knows– if it seems like you’ve “forgotten” about it to him, he might do it sooner than he was initially planning to!

not a pic of the ring i saw the email exchange between him and the jeweler… along with the date that was to be arriving… AND then i saw another message with his best freind that said he was going to do it over labor day weekend. Im such an idiot!!!!

thaaanks 🙂 well we went to look at stones so he knew what to get me but he picked out the final one… should be a 2.8 oval in a skinny pave band… i have been trying to find a pic of something exactly like it… have been spending a stupid amount of time searching for a pic!

@tigerbell: Same thing happened to me in my prev eng. I accidentally found out. Just sit tight and be cool. You know it is coming; it’s been a long time in the making; let it happen naturally. Trust me, the moment will happen, and no sooner than a week after, you might start freaking out that you’ve just made a life-committment to someone and then that ring transitions into THAT kind of serious meaning instead of the initial ring-honeymoon of “ooohh girllll, look at this blinggggggg!!!!”. All the sudden shit gets real lol in a different good way. Congrats either way to you both, when it does happen.
