@BabyCarat:  Yea my FI kept logging into his email on my computer and saving the password. I went to check mine for work one day and didn’t realize that I was looking at his and had an email from one of his friends suggesting dinner arrangements for a weekend trip that we were taking. I thought it was odd that the friend had sent them to me but I figured they were trying to be nice, so I opened the email. Boy was I shocked to see it was a forward saying “My friend is looking for a nice restaurant to propose to his girlfriend..” Needless to say my jaw hit the floor. I was half “OMG so excited!” and half “How could he be so STUPID?” but I was too happy it was happening to dwell on the fact that the surprise was ruined. My FI still doesn’t know that I knew 🙂

@BabyCarat:  Hahaha. Ok. so I would convince myself that the “ring update” was that the ring is going to take 3 months longer than expected. Or that your BF is somehow involved in a remaking of the movie The Ring. 🙂

Same thing happened to me and I was super depressed/upset about it for a couple hours, but then I woke up and realized that it’s going to be special no matter what!

I had a similar thing happen. I set up the custom listing on etsy and everything for him, cause I like to make it easy 🙂 and then I added it to my favorites, only to go on one day and realize that it said SOLD! 

He still managed to surprise the heck out of me!

I accidentally did the same thing- and honestly it made me sad in the beginning, but when he called the day of the proposal to take me out to a fancy date and to dress up, I was just excited and not nervous because I had a pretty good idea what was going to happen! Knowing myself, I actually would have been too nervous should I have been caught completly off guard, but this way I knew to look as “perfect” as possible for my man =) lol It’ll still be a great trip, with or without a proposal, and when he does pop the question you will be so happy ! =)

Honestly, I would be really happy. My SO doesn’t give a shit. If I even mention the word “ring” he gets pissy, despite the fact that he’s (hopefully) planning on proposing sometime within a year.

@BabyCarat:  This exact thing happend to me and I thought that I had ruined the surprise. But it was still amazing and I still bawled like a baby. AND the e-mail that I saw actually had nothing to do with my ring… he had asked a friend about where to buy a ring from, and so that friend directed him to an online shop, but my FI looked into it and decided against it. Instead, he got halfway through custom designing a ring with a different jeweler before deciding to just propose with the diamond and then let me help desing my actual ring. So be careful with what you think you know. I never told FI that I saw the email, but did tell him that I was pretty sure I knew exactly how and when he was going to do it (he’s not very good at being tricky) and he was so so so disappointed. So maybe wait to see how the proposal goes before mentioning any emails. Also, congrats! It’s so exciting!

Aw, sucks that you won’t be actually surprised. I hope you plan to pretend, lol. It’s funny, I’m going to Seattle in 2 weeks. 🙂
