By Brittany Stubbs

Pippa Middleton’s exciting engagement news is just a rumor! Although there was speculation about Middleton and her boyfriend Nico Jackson getting engaged during their trip to India earlier this month, a source tells People,“It is not true.” Although the couple has been dating for a year, it doesn’t look like wedding bells are in the near future…at least at the moment!

How do you keep your engagement under wraps? 

Cupid’s Advice:

Want your big news to stay a surprise for a while? There’s a couple things you should consider:

1. Don’t tell a soul: Even your most loyal friend might have trouble keeping your exciting news a secret. So until you’re ready to tell everyone, don’t tell anyone. It can be difficult holding the big news in, but just think of it as exciting and romantic that you and your partner are the only ones that know about your future plans.

2. Don’t go crazy on Pinterest: Okay, most of us are guilty of occasionally pinning the wedding dresses, cakes, and cute invites on Pinterest; no shame, ladies! But if all of sudden your friends see you’ve added 50 new pins to your “Dream Wedding” board in one night…they might assume something is up. If you can’t resist, make your board private so you can get a head start on planning without giving your engagement news away.

3. Avoid your best friends if possible: That sounds silly, but your friends know when something is going on with you. You may think you’re playing it totally cool, but they notice when you’re holding something back, randomly smiling, or seem eager about something; that’s what makes them best friends. So until you’re ready to shout your news from every rooftop, skip that girls’ night offer and go get planning on exciting ways to share your engagement.
