You might ask, “Gladice, if I talked to my girlfriend about engagement rings, then there would be no surprise at all. “
I understand how you feel because we have all been conditioned to think that way.
But, just because you ask your girlfriend for her opinion on engagement ring before actually proposing DOESN’T mean that she won’t get a surprise wedding proposal.

“Babe, there is something that I want to ask you for your opinion. Do you think you are free to talk tonight at my place?”
After your girlfriend has arrived at your place, here’s how to bring up the topic of engagement ring:
“Babe, you know that we have talked about how we wanted to start a life together. I want you to know that I am serious about what I said before. I’m actually looking for an engagement ring right now, and I really want to get one that you will like. So, can I ask you for your help on this?”
