For those of us who can’t be bothered registering, what’s involved?

@paula1248:  My Engagement Wish is a social network with a defined purpose. We are a socially inclined place that holds in trust your wishes involving your future engagement. Traditionally, a proposal has been a total surprise where the man acts on theories rather than facts. The problem with this dynamic is that the woman may or may not love the design of the ring. Often times, she experiences having to cope with a ring that she did not wish for. Moreover, a sizeable financial investment is made based upon those false theories. myengagementwish.com has set forth the technology to forever solve this traditional problem. We are confident that we have designed the social networking platform and formula to alleviate couples of the fear of chance. After all, opinions are known to typically be far from fact.

I get disappointed, sure, but having to cope? It’s not a life threatening illness or the loss of a loved one.

It seems like a website that was created because too many people these days are afraid to use their words.

I still don’t get it. As far as I can tell, you log onto it and create your wish (your dream engagement ring). That’s all well and good, but how does your Fiance find out about it?

@EffieTrinket: Exactly. What ever happened to a quick ‘when the time comes, I’d really love x style of ring’ or ‘please, just don’t do it at a sporting event/in front of a lot of people/alone/etc’? A three minute conversation seems much more mature and romantic than making a whole wish profile, or whatever this site is.

Yeah. I don’t know what the point is unless you then email it to your intended.

Wow! What a strange website. I was just upfront (i.e. THIS is the type of ring I like.. for whenever you’re ready.. remember it” lol!

@indibee:  +1!!

i’d rather good old fashioned communication. my bf knows exactly what ring i want and knows not to propose at a restaurant (we both used to be servers.. ha!)

plus this website says it ‘preserves’ the surprise. if you lay it all for him where is the surprise?

@indibee:  Yeah, I don’t get it either. Isn’t a conversation more productive? If you can’t tell your SO what you want to their face, you probably shouldn’t be getting engaged…

Weird site. I don’t think I’d ever join, plus if I did, Fi would probably think I am a little cray!

But aren’t you going to have to have a conversation anyway to tell him you have registered on this site and layed out the engagement plan? It seems redundant to me.

And how on earth does it perserve the element of suprise? You basically get to plan out your dream engagement- I mean what guy isn’t going to use your blueprint. If you are that concerned about it that you need a website like that then he would be a fool to ignore it!

I guess the suprise would be if your partner ran away once confronted with this!

I also see it as a sign of our self-centric generation, where everything needs to be publicized and perfect, or it’s not okay. It reminds me of people who are disappointed with their birth story because their baby cupcakes didn’t get to the room on time and their party of friends weren’t allowed in (for an actual party), or the baby took too long, or whatever. *disclaimer- I know sometimes something truly goes wrong with staff or delivery, not talking about that.

With these kinds of things, I think that a lot of people forget that it’s not about the visual and how great it looks to everyone else or if it was “perfect”, it’s the outcome. You’re marrying the love of your life. You just had a baby. Focus, people! I feel like we’ve hyped up so many events for everyone else that they’re no longer organically special to the people living them sometimes. Ok, end tangent.

Wow, coping? I would love it if the worst problem in my life was that I didn’t like my engagement ring.
