I feel ya girl.  My SO spends tons of money on Blu Rays and it drives me crazy!  He has bought me two REALLY nice christmas presents that part of me wished he had just saved the money and bought a ring with.  He seriously could have gotten me my dream ring with the amount he spent on the past two Christmas gifts. AHHH.

I am presently engaged, but I can relate. Two months before our anniversary, my then-BF told me he was looking at laptops but wanted my approval before he went ahead and ordered one. He kept saying money and school was off and not ready to get engaged because of it, and I was like…. um, you could get me a really nice ring for the price of that computer! Guess which one I ended up with! Wink

Though to be fair, I never actually said that to him. HE had the gall to say that he’d been considering getting me an engagement ring but was leaning towards the laptop, cuz, you know, they’re so interchangable and evenly matched in sentimentality! That did in fact prompt our serious discussions of engagement which led to him choosing to propose instead of address my tech needs, but I wouldn’t have said anything if he hadn’t brought it up.

Hang in there, bees, your days will come and it will be totally worth it! Laughing

Yup, I know what you’re talking about. My SO buys expensive vitamens and supplements online ALL the time and one little part of my brain is saying, “That should be ring money!” Yey for him being healthy and all, and it is his money to do with as he pleases, but that’s just the 5 year old in me wanting my present and wanting it NOW!

I just try to remind myself that he will do things in his own time and in his own way and that he may be saving for it on the side and I just am not aware.

I think the same thing. My bf wants to getting new flat screen TV and I’m thinking that should be ring money not TV money!! We’ve talked about it and he will get a ring, but it just irritates me. Why does he need a TV, he has a TV. I don’t have a ring yet!

My BF doesn’t spend any money except to take us out so I’m not worried.  He is very good with his money which is one of the reasons I am with him.  I need someone more responsible than I am hehe!

I can totally relate.  My BF wants to go CAR shopping this weekend.  There is nothing wrong with his car, btw, which is totally paid off.  But last month we thought it might have to be totaled (insurance ended up covering it) so he got the idea of a new car stuck in his head, even though it’s not necessary.  I know he’s saving for a ring so that new $300 monthly car payment could be VERY better spent somewhere else… 

I find myself biting my lip so hard I can taste blood….

Well – it’s none of my business really because he hasn’t said “we’re definitely getting married” – BUT he spent $2,300 this Christmas on himself to get some antique chairs refinished.  He got a pretty big bonus and he did spend a lot of me at Christmas too.  He always does spend a lot on me.  BUT, I did think “$2,300 would buy me a fine looking ring!!!”
