Well, it sounds like your SO knows how you feel about jewlery,right?  So, I’m pretty sure if she does try to contact him, trying to convince him that you need a ring, he will just dismiss the conversation.


I don’t think there needs to be a ring either, though, I’d like to have one, but everyone is different.


It can def be just as romantic with or without an e-ring.


I wish you the best of luck and def want to hear if/when he gets on one knee!

Glad you got that out. I totally understand how people think just because EVERYONE does it, means it’s the way it should be. Irritating!

Good luck next week! And have SO much fun! I love cruises, but can only cruise during the summer, unfortunately. (I teach.)

Hey, non-ring sister, you get all your frustration out whenever you need to.  I’m TOTALLY with you on the “not wanting a ring” thing.  I’m SOOO glad Fiance listened to me about it.  Instead, he proposed with a pendant that is circular in shape, worn around my neck.  He really liked the circular, eternal meaning of the ring shape, but COMPLETELY understands my obsession with washing my hands & how I don’t like doing that with rings on (I’m irrationally convinced that, if I don’t take the ring off, that part of my hand will not get clean), so I just don’t do rings.  Added bonus: no other woman can ever make me feel like her ring is “better” due to cut, size, setting, etc. because my ‘ring’ doesn’t fit that criteria (and for the best reason – because he chose it specifically for me, the ring-disliker)! Honestly, everyone who asks to see the ring is impressed by FI’s creativity & consideration when they see what he picked out.  I’m sure that your Fiance is MUCH more attentive to your wants & needs than your friend, so you’ll probably get exactly what you want. 

Good Luck & Have FUN on your cruise!
