So my Boyfriend or Best Friend and I were out having a nice dinner at our favorite resturant after voting. There were candles and piano music it was lovely. He asks me about my day with a big smile on his face, and then says so..he starts telling me how much he loves me and my daughter and how much we mean to him. Talking about how weve been together for 3 yrs now and he knows I want a commitment….Then his phone rings for work……so im sitting there thinking to my self OMG this is it…with a big stupid smile on my face…. after he hangs up he says I love you and Ive been thinking about our future and I want you to be taken care of….then he goes in his pocket and pulls out……A BUSINESS CARD….i think quickly to my self ok maybe its a jewerly store card….NOPE he continues to tell me how he met with this insurance guy today and is gonna get a seperate life insurance policy for me so if anything ever happens to him Ill be taken care of……UGH….really…insurance….I felt so stupid I just stared at him till he asked how i felt about that and i managed to smile and say oh ya thats a great idea thanks babe…. OH HOW SILLY I FELT….waiting is tourcher!!!

Are you sure the work call didn’t kill the mood for him?
Or maybe he saw this insurance thing as a precurser to getting engaged?
That is a huge let down though… I’m not sure I’d want to hear about life insurance while on a romantic date…

ahhh i’d be sooo disappointed. that’s crazy. i bet the work call “ruined” the moment for him, so he just went with the life insurance thing. LOL

Oh man! What a let down! But hey, on the other hand, a life insurance policy for him just for you is a pretty big legal deal.

aw. on one hand, it’s cute that he wants to take care of you. on the other hand, how did he not think that in this scenario you would be thinking he was going to propose? …guys.

Guys can be so stupid sometimes. I find it humorous that he gave you that whole speech just to say he got some life insurance but I feel so bad that he got your hopes up. 😐 If he’s willing to do that for you and your child, however, I’m sure a ring will follow!

Sure, life insurance isn’t as fun as a pretty shiny ring, but taking out an insurance policy shows that he is thinking about the future, he’s in it for the long haul, and your financial stability is important to him. And this is how some men show love, not in terms of jewelry and shiny things but in terms of long term stability.
Try not to rain too hard on his parade.

I would be really upset, actually. I don’t think I’d be able to hide it, either.
And I’d also tell him, how about one thing at a time? Let’s make a commitment to each other with marriage before we start talking life insurance. Ridiculous!

Life insurance is a nice gesture though, he really wants you to be taken care of if something were to happen to him…it is a type of commitment….just not the ring type.

Your response should have been, “I wouldn’t need my own policy if I were your wife..” lol Actually I don’t know if that’s how life insurance works, but that’s reallly a hilarious story, although I’m sorry for your disappointment!!
