@FutureMrsJefferson:  awww, it just sounds like he is SUPER excited about it. I think it’s cute! But if you don’t want to know too much, maybe just change the subject each time he brings it up? I definitely wouldn’t tell him straight out to stop bringing it up because that may hurt his feelings.

Haha, it’s sweet how excited he is!

I wouldn’t tell him to stop (But I’d be scared he’d misunderstand and stop LOOKING at rings!) But I would go “I can’t wait for a proposal… It’s the best surprise a girl ever gets!”

So he understands that you DO want it to be a surprise!

@FutureMrsJefferson:  this made me smile! Oh how cute!! Just let him enjoy it, sounds like he’s super excited and that is amazing! When he gives it to you it’ll still be a surprise regardless of how much he has talked about it :)t

@FutureMrsJefferson: Yay how exciting! 

 Next time he brings up rings say something like ‘Yeah, I can’t wait to be surprised!”

AUGH! My SO is the same way! I thought it was really cute at first but I don’t want to talk about rings, I want to HAVE one! Don’t get me wrong, I love that he’s thinking about it and planning for it, but having to think about it so frequently makes it harder to be patient. 😐

I’m currently doing that for my girlfriend too. My reasoning:

I can’t keep the ring secret because I’ve been on the bee and girls have said they hated their rings! I definitely do not want my future wife to hate a ring she will be wearing for a long time, so I keep showing her rings that I think she would like and thank god I did because we were on completely different pages. I thought she wanted a more vintage ring-so I was gonna go with an oval morganite, but when we went to the store, I found out that she really liked a cushion cut.

I haven’t told her about the proposal ideas yet (and never will) but I have been frequenting the bee in an attempt to perfect the proposal! so be careful, he might have an account 😉

this is probably why he keeps talking to you about rings, because he wants to pick up the perfect one, so let him do it, because you’ll get a better ring!
