@MissRuthie: Mine has had the ring since Feb.
I’ve been dying to tell this story, so I can make everyone giggle a bit. My SO is a touch of a miser, and when it comes to spending money, is pretty tightfisted. So we’d been looking for something since around December, although it was pretty casual. I didn’t think he’d want to purchase anything anytime soon, so I’d look, and then move on. He started looking with me, and before I really knew it, we were ring shopping.
One day, we walked into Kay’s Jewlers, and I saw this ring and when I put it on, I was in love. I didn’t want to take it off, regardless of how tight it was. So went home, found out it was on sale, let him know, we went and looked at it again the next day, asked if the internet sale price would be applied at the store as well, and found out it would. He said he wanted to go home, so I sadly left once more.
Went back to his house and put it out of my head. The ring was midrange in the budget he told me he wanted to stay in, so I knew that he was fine with that. So there we are, sitting around his house, and all of a sudden he says, “Come on, let’s go buy it.”
I was shocked. My SO doesn’t make snap decisions like that. I asked if he was sure, and he said that if we didn’t go together, he’d go on Tuesday and do it then. Well, I wasn’t going to let this slip by, so on the shoes went and we went back to the mall.
It took 4 trips in and out of the store, with me reassuring him that if he wasn’t ready or didn’t want to buy the ring it was fine, until he actually bought it. I felt bad for the poor sales lady.
My pretty now sits in his safe. He doesn’t let me look or touch at all, and I’m just waiting for him to do well in class to propose. Because… he has this “PLAN” and I have to wait. *sigh*
That’s my story.
