So thanks to those who answered my last post asking for advice – I sat down with my SO and went through everything with him, how I had hurt him, how he had hurt me. We had a massive chat (took about 3 days!) and lots of crying, and now we’re working on building the relationship back up again, not that it had fallen that far, but there were some cracks we needed to address.
So I now know a proposal is some way away, but I wanted to do something significant for my SO. I wanted to give him (and get for myself) some sort of commitment band, as a symbol of our love and commitment to each other, but also our commitment to changing our bad ways, and looking to the future.
I was thinking of a bracelet type band, something we can both wear. Does anyone have any suggestions? I’d like to get us something the same or at least very similar.
Thanks Bees, you’re an amazing source of help and support!
P.s. please don’t reply if you just don’t like the idea, I’m just looking for help choosing what sort of bands to get

@kellym83: Do you like leather braid type bracelets? I know they aren’t to everyone’s taste, but they’re unisex and very easy to wear everyday.

@kellym83: Me and my FI started out very poorly, TBH we started out as F*&K buddies after he split from his ex FI. I had a really hard time coping when we moved from the F(*&k buddie thing to a relationship, I could never really believe he wasn’t just dating me to make me happy.
Well one day he surprised me with matching gender nuetral stainless steel bands. He wore one and I wore one on our right hands.
It was very helpful and showed me how he really felt and things improved immensly.

@Ibblet: Thank you for this! It gives me a lot of reassurance. I am certain that my SO is ‘the one’ and things are just taking a bit longer now than they were before (we moved in together after only 6 months, and have been living together almost 2 years now).
@Mimoza: I really like leather bands like that… might have to find out if SO does too! Thanks 🙂
