@JMH_CLL:  Well it sounds like you do already know something is going on without your Mom anyways, but if she’s driving you crazy then I’d just go the direct route with her. Although I don’t know your Mom, my Mom can be super annoying/pestering about things like that too and the only way I can get her to stop is to tell her to butt out 🙂


I would say something along the lines of: “I don’t want to talk about upcoming marriage/engagement plans anymore until after it’s happened. FI and I have discussed what we needed to and now talking about it makes waiting for the surprise harder, so please stop. P.S. I love that you’re so excited for me and can’t wait to talk weddings when the time is right.”

@JMH_CLL:  I think PP’s are right, you just have to be direct with her. Tell her you don’t want to talk about it anymore until it’s official.

@JMH_CLL:  yes I’d have to ask your mom to back up. Just say to her that you are so excited about your impending proposal, but you really want it all to be a surprise and your SO keeps dropping hints and you wish he wouldn’t because you really want it to be a COMPLETE SURPRISE!!!! if that doesn’t work, I think you need to ask her directly not to spoil the details

Sounds like my mom. She thinks she is subtle and sneaky, but it’s always extremely easy to figure out who talked to her or what she is thinking or what the secret is.
