My SO and I went ring shopping this summer, maybe mid August? Anyway, we designed a ring together and I got sized, all of the exciting this-is-really-happening steps! There was a timeline for the jewler to hold the stone for us, so I was pretty sure he pulled the trigger on it.
We’ve discussed wedding dates for next fall ( we want to pick one before we get engaged ) We haven’t picked a location or date, yet. When I mention it he puts it off ‘lets talk about it next week’ etc. There have been a few events where I’m sure its happening, but nothing yet. It’s driving me nuts, ha ha. Curiosity got the best of me, I made a huge mistake and peeked at the jewlers website. I think it’s on there 🙈 I have semi-confirmation that it exists! I just saw a flash of yellow with some of the setting details we talked about – I freaked out and closed the browser as fast as possible. Half of me wants to go back and just stare at it and make sure it’s perfect (eeek, what if it’s not right!?!) the other half doesnt want to ruin the surprise and wait for ‘the day’. I’ve been having crazy dreams about it and can’t seem to get it off my mind! Would you look? If not, any distraction tips?

How stupid is that jeweller to put up your ring on the web site when it’s a surprise ??
But anyway, congrats on the upcoming proposal! 😃

Don’t look! Try to be patient–he’s probably waiting for the perfect moment, and you don’t want to ruin the surprise when you’re so close!

dont look! You know it’s coming and seeing it for the first time is so special for you AND For him. Don’t take that away from him. i found the box before my fi proposed. I didn’t look. I suspected what it was but walked away. I can’t tell you how happy I am to have made that choice (and I’m a nosy grinch)

If you look again, that special oment may not be as special as you would’ve wanted it to be, as in OMG I’M TRULY SURPRISED/SHOCKED! Just remind yourself of that and you shouldn’t be lured intno checking it out again.

ristai01: Thank you, I am the worst actor – it would be so obvious! It’s a once in a lifetime surprise, I need to remember that and resist peeking.
EDubbs: Thank you and good point, I didn’t really think of it from his perspective! I’m so nosey and need to resist the temptation
gbee: I hope so, he’s not the most romantic guy, but has managed some pretty amazing surprises. Time to keep busy with Holiday preparation, thank you!
SwedishBee: It is a little strange, I always assumed jewlers waited until they get confirmation that the proposal happened!
