Aww well just try and see it for what it is – a fantastic gift that shows how much he loves you.

Damn girl, you’re getting a diamond necklace?!  I get the disappointment about not getting a proposal, but seriously, you should be jumping up and down with joy that your man actually buys you jewelry.  Some men don’t.  Ever.  (I know two of them.)

It could definitely be worse.  Our first Christmas together, I helped him shop for a gift for his mom, and found some pajamas I really thought she would like.  Since I was so enthusiastic about them, he figured I REALLY liked them, and proudly presented me with a matching pair on Christmas morning.

Hehe, I think I’ll take the diamonds!

A diamond necklace? That would be an awesome gift but a ring would still be better lol My SO has never given me any kind of jewelry (yeah , I have one of those too) so I would settle for any jewelry. He isn’t too good in the gift giving area either, usually giving some of my favorite snacks and a gift card. Last Christmas, I was really thinking a proposal would happen, so imagine my surprise when I unwrapped some snacks and some pajamas. Yeah, not wha tI was expecting lol We were unable to spend the day togheter so at least he was spared the disappointment on my face.

@eloping – LOL!

My mom’s birthday the first year my parents were married (they had only been married a couple weeks), my dad bought her a corning-ware handle. She was gracious about it, but did make him realize before any more holidays/birthdays that she would prefer a more “romantic” gift.

I know you must be diasppointed despite how awesome a diamond necklace is. It’s so close yet not quite the diamond you wanted, I get it. It’s only bratty if you sulk about it, though after 6 years, I would probably be sulking a little…

The first present SO ever got me was a dustbuster. I thought to myself “I can either be insulted by this or just enjoy it”

I actually love that thing now. It’s lasted for years and it’s really handy!

When it comes to disappointing gifts, I think my dad pretty much wins the prize. One year he got my mom a set of canning jars (that was what they had in the gas station they stopped at right after my dad realized it was my mom’s birthday). Another year he got her a subscription to Playboy. Strangely enough, even though the gift wasn’t well received, the subscription kept getting renewed many years afterwards. 

After hearing those stories all my life, a diamond necklace sounds pretty good! But man, after 6 years, you definitely deserve a different kind of diamond too. Maybe he really is working on the other – that coworker story seems like too much of a coincidence. If he knows you know that story, it seems like he wouldn’t go down that road unless he was trying to either give you a hint or torture you. How do you know he’s not working on it?
