It sounds like there is more than silverware… but WOW if this was all just a trick, I would be hurt too!

I say just wait a bit.. it honestly sounds like he might have something up his sleeve but didn’t know exact times (of jewelry arriving or something?) and plans changed so he had to make something up?

I dont know, I am sorry you have to deal with it .. but hopefully soon you will look back and laugh, with either a ring on your finger or a necklace around your neck!!

@MissAmethyst:  Did you ask him why he sent that text?  That’s a bit mean. I know after our incident we had a long talk about toying with the bull means getting the horns

Wait it out for a bit girl – I have never gotten an anniversary present and for my birthday have gotten a gift card to a local superstore that sells clothes. Last bday all i wanted was a picnic and ended up packing it myself because he was going to just bring subs from subway (knowing that after 4 years a picnic would have been a dream for me).

How long ago did you come back from vacation and find the silverwear? I know it’s hard but I say give it two weeks before you bring it up. That seems like more than enough time to me for something to happen.

If you hadn’t included the part about giving money to his sister then I would say to bring it up now. However, I doubt he was paying his sister for the silverwear because otherwise how did it get to your house and in the drawer?

You could always let your nails go and see if he insists on you painting them again. That to me is a sign that something is happening. 

OR you could beg his sister to give you a hint if you get along well with her.

@MissAmethyst:  Guys get awful presents. I got a backpack and clothes that were too small from a store I have NEVER shopped in for Christmas. And a water dispenser for valentines day. So I can see why a blender and silverware would be upsetting!! 

@Everdeen:  +1 I like the letting your nails go idea- its clever!!

LOL, I don’t mean to laugh at your story but all the other ones afterwards with horrible presents from their boyfriends.

If my boyfriend did that, I’d test out the flying ability of each piece of silverware in his direction LOL

It definitelly sounds like there mey be more to this so just wait it out and see what happens. My thoughts are with you and I hope that you do get something special from him. Please keep us updated 🙂

This sounds like a trick he may be up to something. I’d wait it out a bit he’s probably just teasing you, I hope he pulls through and gets you the necklace you want

Hmm. You haven’t, at some point in the past year or so, expressed a desire for new silverware, by any chance? 

I got Mr. E. silverware for his birthday and I thought he loved it.

It was really nice and ridiculously expensive and I even saved the receipt so he could return it if he didn’t like it. 

Now I wonder if that was a lousy gift.

@Elvis:  I think he would have only been disappointed if you’d hinted that it was going to be an engagement ring.  😀

Honestly, I think silverware is a fine gift. After getting my e-ring, I think Fiance is off the hook for being romantic for at least a little while. I’d probably be overjoyed to get fancy silverware because that would mean we would get to register for one more thing we wanted, rather than just what we needed.
