What are some ways to keep your engagement under wraps at first?

Cupid’s Advice:

You’re newly engaged, but you’re not entirely sure if you’re ready to tell all of your loved ones yet. Sometimes, couples just want to enjoy the moment by themselves for a little while and that’s perfectly OK. Cupid has some tips:

1. Keep it a secret: Hiding such exciting news from your friends and family can be easier said than done, but it’s also the simplest way to keep your engagement just between you and your partner. Until you’re ready to tell your loved ones what’s going on in your relationship, keep this bit of information to yourself.

2. The ring: You can’t go flashing your ring around when you’re trying to keep your engagement a secret. When you’re around people who aren’t aware of your relationship status, just tuck away your ring in a safe place.

3. Avoid social media: Even your cryptic tweets or Facebook status can reveal your big secret. Avoid saying anything about you and your partner on any social network until you’ve figured out when and where would be the best time to let everyone know about your engagement.
