Keep it secret, keep it safe

I have been asked by my roommate's boyfriend to covertly find her ring size for an engagement ring. He suggested digging through her stuff until I find a ring to use with an online ring sizing guide. I'm uncertain whether the surprise factor is a bigger deal than the invasion of privacy. [more inside]

Suggestions needed for romantic deliveries before the big proposal

On the day I'm planning to propose, I want to flood my partner with deliveries at the office. I'm already planning on: flowers, fruit basket, balloon-o-gram. I'm hoping for additional suggestions of items to send. Difficulty level - gluten free. Bonus question - looking for a courier who will deliver in east Toronto/Scarborough (for gluten free baked goods, which I need to source - recommendations?) [more inside]

How to Deal with Maybe-Possible-Impending Marriage Proposal

My boyfriend and I have been together for a little under 3 years, and we have lived together for over one year. We are in our late twenties. We are extremely compatible 90% of the time, have so much fun together, are mutually supportive, generally very communicative, and love each other deeply. We get along with each others' families, we travel and live well together, and we share so many interests. I am ready to marry the man, and he is maybe/kinda/sorta ready to marry me. Ouch!

Idea for Google! That and 50 cents...

I have a serious project proposal for Google. I don't need to make money on it, but I'd like to get it looked at. I've been poking around their websites, and have found places to submit business and partnership ideas, but I'm really not sure that those are the right way to submit this concept. It's something on the order of Google Art Project, but different from that. What would you recommend or link me to? Thanks!

Ring? Check. Girlfriend? Check. Now what do I do?

Me and my girlfriend are going to get engaged in a couple of weeks and both decided that we would rather avoid a formal proposal. Instead, we will spend a day together at the beach and magically emerge engaged. Given the fact that the surprise quirky engagement is off the table, any ideas for how I can make this an even-less forgettable day? Bonus question: What are the technical things that you regret missing from when you got engaged? More pictures? Who to tell first? What am I missing?

Is it normal to get cold feet this early?

My boyfriend and I are in our late 20's and we've been together for almost three years. We've talked a lot about marriage (both casually and seriously), and we've both been enthusiastic about it. I'm getting the feeling that he may propose soon, and suddenly I feel nervous about it. I think I'm just generally scared of making such a big life decision. I know it's normal for people to get pre-wedding jitters, but what about pre-engagement? [more inside]

radically minimalist proposal

I want to propose to my long-time partner, but an overblown wedding proposal sounds agonizing to me as an introvert. I am now thinking that I would like to aim my energy at finding the most creatively minimalist proposal that I can. My partner is completely quirky, so the strangest ideas are totally welcomed. I'm overthinking this to the point of paralysis, and losing months of engaged bliss as a result! How the heck should I propose given all these elements? [more inside]
