Today my SO started sending me texts about jewlrey stores I like. I took a deep breath and squished any exitement. Told him my favorite place and hoped a tiny bit that he would remember the ring I sent him a long time ago that Im in love with… Text later that day explained that one of his friends is looking for a promise ring for his girlfriend and needed advice.I tell myself “I didnt get my hopes up, im fine”..tries not to cry..fails. Basically replied that his friend should ask his OWN girlfriend.
Even if he is making up the ‘friend’ At this point weve been over promise rings, it would have been lovely a year ago…but at this time it would be dissapointing to have a promise instead of a marriage proposal. Trying to keep my head up but sometimes its just so hard.
Have you gals had this happen?

Sounds like a proposal in the midst to me. Guys seriously think women are so stupid and for some reason think that acting like jerks to throw us off will make the proposal all the more sweeter. Time for you to tell him about “your friend” who was so upset that her boyfriend thought jerk-like behavior leading up to a proposal would win him a “yes.”

@MissStruggles: He is SO out looking for a ring for you- for sure.
My SO “lied” to me and told me he had to work extra hours- ridiculous hours for HIS job- when he was out ringing it up!
Of course he wasn’t going to say a friend was looking for an engagement ring- he had to TOTALLY throw you off with “a friend” and a “promise ring”-
Ring for you girl!!

He’s trying to throw you off I bet. Guys think they’re super stealthy when it comes to surprises, but most of the time they’re not.
