Most Helpful Guy
Okay so... from a guy's perspective, as you've read, most of us think it's super lame. Like on a scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being the "holy shit balls that's lame," i think a solid 9.
That being said, in a relationship, it's not always about what you want. I got a promise ring for my girlfriend (now wife) just to set her mind at ease. She knew how dumb i thought it was, but i did it anyway because it put her mind at ease... and she finally shut the hell up about it.
So if all else fails, badger, nag, annoy your way to the top

I asked my boyfriend how he felt about rings. I made sure he wasn’t uncomfortable with the idea of me giving him one. I let him pick it out, so I could get a matching one. He really loves it. So ask him if that would be an acceptable gift and if it would make him uncomfortable. You can ask what styles and colors he likes and if he likes detailed stuff (my boyfriend has a black tungsten ring with an opal stripe in the middle). It makes it special because it comes from you and you both put time into it
