So I have another thread in the rings section talking about a ring I’d picked out. I thought it was really pretty and a great price, but when I showed it to my boyfriend he didn’t react the way I thought he would. He said something about how he wasn’t sure when he’d be able to get me a ring, despite having said that he liked the ring that I showed him and asking me what store it was at. (And despite telling me recently that he has X amount of money saved already.)
That was yesterday, so imagine my surprise today when we were talking on Skype and he asked me if I could come down in exactly a month for some sort of event that a jewelry store in his city is having! He went on to talk about how he went out today to several jewelry stores and looked at rings and talked to the people and what his impressions were. I’m pretty sure my tummy filled up with butterflies in record time! It’s one thing when I’m looking at rings and showing him things that I like, the poor guy has to go along with it to a certain extent. But for him to actually go out on his own and look? It was so cute too, he confessed that he was super nervous when he went into the stores and that he could barely get the words “an engagement ring” out when the lady at the store asked him what he was looking for.
But yeah, he told me I should take off work (fortunately it is on my day off) to come to this event where I can try on different rings and see how different stones look in different settings and stuff. If he’s asking me to try on rings then I’m all for it! He also said we could go this upcoming weekend to the store in my city where I found the ring I like and we can talk to the people there and I can show him the ring I’d sent him a picture of. It will be our first time actually going out and looking at rings together so I am super excited for it.
What do you think ladies? Sounds pretty serious to me, could he just be teasing me or does this seem like he’s actually in the market for an ering?
