What does he say when you tell him your ring is significantly less than his toys?

That blows!  Sorry you are having such a crappy ‘waiting’ week.  My SO spent $1,500 on a new tv about 6 months ago…really!!?  It was for our house so it’s great to have an awesome tv….but damn, Im sure there are some nice $500 tv’s out there!!  UGH…hope next week is much better for you!!

I’m sorry to hear that. I’m going through something similar right now with my SO, so I feel ya.  I hope that you guys work things out soon.  (While we’re throwing numbers around, mine spent $22,000 on a BOAT this summer… that was a hard one to swallow)

I’m so sorry you’re having such a bad waiting week. The ups and downs of this time in our relationship really sucks.

Hope it gets better! *Hugs*

Sorry your having a bad waiting week – I know we have all been there. My SO bought himself a new bike about the same time he started paying for my ring.. you can guess that his bike was about double the cost of the e-ring :/

Just to think if he held off on his bike a couple of months my ring could be bought and paid for.. oh well – his bike had a flat tyre this week (must be karma! muahaha!)

Keep busy and be happy, your proposal is not far away I am sure 🙂

Feeling you!  I think men don’t correlate their hobbys with money that could be spent elsewhere, like its a separate “fun” fund and not the serious “saving for a ring” fund.  Sorry you’re having a bad week.

Bf just bought an electric guitar. I actually loaned him some of the money for it with the condition that he pays me back ASAP and he gets me whatever I want for Christmas (I know I won’t be getting what I really want it’s just fun to mess with him sometimes lol) It gets annoying when he spends more money on himself than a ring would cost but it is his money and I can’t control what he does with it.
