How did you mistake his email for yours? I’m not quite understanding that part.

As for the dilemma, just be honest. Say “I know you saw a ring picture I was looking at, but that’s not my style.” Unless you think he already bought it of course?

Oh, I get it now after reading the other comments. He saved the link. I still say honesty is best.

I think you should just bring up getting engaged/rings and tell him the style you like and/or send him a link to a ring you do like in casual conversation.  If he hasn’t bought it yet then it should be fine.

Or if you want to be sneaky (which I don’t reccomend doing, honesty is the best policy) then just replace the link to the ring you don’t like with one you do… If he hasn’t bought it yet then he’ll open the email for a reminder and get the right idea. ๐Ÿ˜‰  This could backfire if he already bought it or doesn’t check the email again though, so talking about it is the best choice.

I think you guys need separate computers more than a ring. ๐Ÿ˜€ (j/k)

Just tell him. (Seriously, it should not be a big deal to say “You left your email logged in and I saw you’d saved a link to that ring I was looking at. I didn’t leave that picture up as a hint or anything. I really hate that ring. Just in case you saved that link for a reason.”)

He might’ve saved it because he thought you liked it. He might’ve just saved it because it was the page you were looking at and he didn’t want to close the browser and lose your spot.

Save a different ring in it’s place? Like, bring up a ring you REALLY want and save a copy of that ring’s picture in the message, deleting the old one?

I always end up in FI’s email since we share a computer.  I know you weren’t purposely snooping ๐Ÿ™‚  I think talking to him is best too. 

Let us know what he says!

hahaha caught! We also share a laptop, and my now Fiance would catch me looking constantly. I did the same thing and left it open on my computer and he saw it and told me I wasn’t very subtle…OOPS!

Glad you worked it out!

@RinaRoo: I think you should just bring up a ring convo, and start showing him pics.  Pull up rings you love so he gets an idea.  Then, just happen to pull up the picture of the ring you hate that he happened to save.  Tell him that is an example of what you really don’t like.
