on one occasion i purposed to my girlfriend and because she joked about it, it made me upset. i mean, i didn't have a ring, so i guess i can see why she took it as a joke. some of her friends are engaged and she said that she kinda feels really left behind. she got in contact with a ring specialist that makes custom rings and show them and told them about her dream ring. it was going to be around $3800. she told me about it and i asked her why it was so expensive and she said "its a custom, like there isn't any like it, and its a... well you can guess what kind of ring it is". i replied with "wait.. its a engagement ring?" and she just smiled at me.
i talked to her again and said "im sorry, but thats out of my budget, could we find something cheaper", she asked "how cheaper?" and i said "$1000 or under". i could tell she was upset and she then said "im paying for it, cause i really want it, so im going to save up for it, it won't take me long to save" i did ask that after she got it, could i purpose to her with it and she said that it would be silly of me to do that, with a ring she is paying for.
i feel a little annoyed about that, but im not sure what else to do. what should i do? i feel like i should be at least able to purpose to her, since it will be a expensive ring and she just can't wear a engagement ring as a normal ring, wouldn't that be silly? she did tell me (before i told her my budget) and kept throwing out hints and when i said that about my budget, she has started a money saving plan. i just dont know what to do or how to really feel about it
Work more hours find another job take care of it on your own it’s ridiculous that she has a pay for her own engagement ring. It looks very bad
it is very bad, i really want to get it for her. but i feel like that its a stupid price for a engagement ring. i dont have a job or hours, i seen her ask her boss for a few more shifts. i can guess its for the ring. she was also thinking of getting another job, so she can get the money quicker. the job i want to get i could earn $3000 a fortnight. but i dont have the qualifications for it. she is a student, she works at a motel and will soon have a job in the body art industry. i feel like she will burn herself out for the ring
If you’re not working there’s no point of getting married at this time. Can’t have her buying her own Ring it’s just not manly and it’s really embarrassing Kind of like a loser mentality
