A lot of you already found your rings?? I want to know how you found it and whether it made waiting any easier? I am literally dying to know if my SO has a ring hiding somewhere! But I’m afraid to look and driver myself crazier if I don’t find anything…or if I DO find something and ruin the surprise. Your thoughts please!

Do NOT look! Why ruin your surprise?!

I wouldn’t go searching for it, IMO. This can cause disappointment not only if you don’t find it, but if you find it too. If you find it, it ruins the element of surprise. Also if you find it but he doesn’t propose for quite some time you might start to become resentful or might let something slip that you saw it….by accident of course 😉 The obvious dissappointment would be that you don’t find it and so you assume he hasn’t purchased one yet. I know it’s hard, I’m right there with you right now. But don’t look, it only adds more stress for you.

Do not look. Everyone that I’ve heard that has looked or found it on accident was only driven crazy cause they were counting the days that it was sitting in a dresser without a proposal. I didn’t pick any of your options. I was there when it was purchased and it should be here sometime this month or early next month. Even if he decides to hide it I know I won’t look. I want it to be a surprise and I would be super bummed if I looked one day and it was suddenly missing. I’d be waiting for it all day. I don’t want that.

Don’t do it!! I accidently found mine in the closet while going through things. However I did NOT open the box so I didn’t know what it looked like until he proposed. But after I found it I was on edge every second until the proposal. I wish I’d never seen the box, but he still suprised me.

there are far too many posts on here from people who looked, and found the ring, and then were very disappointed that they weren’t completly surprised when it happened.

I’ll be honest, I kinda snooped and found the receipt. But then he had mentioned that he might be buying me one overseas and then impatient, control freak part of me just couldn’t bear not knowing if this was the case. Hence, the snoop.
I’m glad I know he has one because I know it’s coming and it means I’m not going to bug him about it because I know he wants to do it his way and surprise me.
I still have no idea how or when he will propose (although I am crossing my fingers for Xmas) so it is still going to be a huge surprise. Plus, I have no idea what ring he has bought me so that will be a huge surprise too.
I will only say don’t look cos if you don’t find it you might end up being disappointed….

Haha, I kind of looked as I know where the ring is stored (in a safe), but I do not know where the safe is hidden. I have a feeling not in the house, which is why I haven’t look around for it much longer, but I am all for snooping, if it’s driving you crazy and you just want a sign it’s coming 🙂

Don’t look!! Snooping through things and then pretending not to know about it is not a good way to start out a marriage.

I feel you! Ever since I found the “Order Status” page on his computer, I have been dying to find out if what I am hoping is coming true. I haven’t found any further clues around the house or in the computer since so it’s driving me crazy!!! I am dying!!!

i’m going to against the grain and say do what you want, since that’s what you’ll end up doing anyways 😉
i’d only approve of anyone snooping for their ring if they 1) already know for sure there is a ring and 2) already know what it looks like. otherwise the surprise will be ruined for you.
