I would say wait. You’ve only been together 16 months by Christmas. No need to rush. I would say wait at least until next summer.

@cmrocks:  I would wait, in part because you haven’t been together for very long (and big changes in lifestyle may alter things) but more importantly because it would be nicer to enjoy being together right after the proposal.

@cmrocks:  How old are the two of you? To me, promise rings are for younger couples. But that might just be me. I would never want my boyfriend to give me a promise ring if we were over the age of say 23 or 24, it just kind of seems silly. To me it’s either go big or go home… But I know a lot of bees would disagree with me.

 

If she’s mature about your relationship, she would be content with waiting until next summer for an engagement ring, and wont let the long distance get in the way. You should just get her a nice necklace or earrings for her birthday this summer, to let her know you love and appreciate her, but that way she’s not always looking at the promise ring wishing it were an engagement ring.

@cmrocks:  I say go for the promise ring. Long distance relationships can be really tough, and having that reminder that you love her and are committed to her on her finger will help her when she’s missing you or having problems with the distance.

@cmrocks:  Promise rings are a nice sentiment for LDR couples, regardless of age. I think you should go for it!
