    Forget about it and enjoy the thought he put into it. Things happen, he made a mistake by fb messaging someone from a shared computer, but he has obviously put a lot of time and effort into the proposal, please don’t make him redo everything just because you accidently found out. And don’t ruin all the time and effort he put in for the same reason. Just do your hair nice, get your nails done and tell yourself it’s not coming until June, so you still have a small element of surprise.

    Proposals don’t HAVE to be a surprise. I guarantee you are still going to enjoy it even if you know the date in advance. Let him carry out his plan. It sounds like he has something really sweet and thoughtful planned!

    Just let it happen naturally.   Don’t show you’re surprised if you’re not.  Don’t fake your reaction.  Just act naturally and you don’t have to tell him that you knew about it.   Try not to think about it too much.   Just have fun and go along with it.

    Tell him, and let him try three more times to suprise you. Then, you can always say, “May the 4th” attempt be the right one!


    Just Kidding!!

    Don’t tell him! Just have fun! I figured out my proposal was happening the night it was going to happen as soon as I realized that my SO was taking me out to dinner before our vacation. I even tipped my hand that I knew, because I told him that I needed to go back inside and get my camera, since, you never know when you may need to take pictures of something important, lol. It was still super exciting!

    Don’t tell him, just enjoy it. He clearly put forth a effort to make this special for you both, and is looking forward to it. 

    My Darling Husband and I picked out my ring, I had wanted him to then propose at his time when he felt comfortable. He called me at work the day after and said, I know what I want to do, want to do it today, and this is where and how. Of course, this is coming from someone that can’t even wait until XMas to give me presents, so I wasn’t shocked. It didn’t detrack from the special moment at all, the thought and effort, the words, the special moment is COMPLETELY the same. 

    Enjoy it, look cute, and take it the moment. This day, along with your wedding day are one of the few happy days one gets to remember almost every detail.

    This is fairly simple. Do you want to marry him? Say yes.
