So last night, I came across this article about Jennifer Love Hewitt.
Basically, she’s picked out 3 of her ‘dream’ e-rings…. meanwhile she’s been dating her SO a very short amount of time.
Granted, I’ve been with my guy almost 4 and a half years so it’s a little different… but I’ve sent him links with styles I like (once or twice over the span of 2 years or more roughly lol), and even though he’s said it doesn’t bother him at all and it’s good that he has the ideas, I still felt kinda bad when I read the comments people were leaving about her being desperate and insecure if she does that (silly, I know… I shouldn’t have let it get to me lol). But the people really tore her apart!
My SO has opened up more and more as of late, telling me he has “plans” and even admitted to me the other day that he was watching a wedding show when I wasn’t home!! I was teasing him about it a couple days later, and HE kept bringing the show up after that. So I think he’s warming up, most definitely.
I don’t know if maybe I’m just in one of the emotional stages of waiting, but it was just the comments that kinda irked me. This one guy talked about how he didn’t propose to his gf for 5 years, and she kept sending him links of styles and he hated it, hated the pressure. That one really got to me haha.
But really the main reason I looked into different styles to show him, is because whenever there’s a gift giving occasion of any sort, he always wants to know EXACTLY what I want. So I figured it would probably be the same with this, especially since he isn’t into/doesn’t know jewellery. I’ve flat out told him obviously he doesn’t have to get any of the rings I’ve shown him, and I’d be happy with a Ring Pop or twist tie haha. The only reason I showed him the last one a few months ago, was because the style I originally loved actually looks terrible on my hand (how can a ring look terrible?! I was shocked!) and I fell in love with a solitaire. Going from one of those rings with the mini side diamonds and one in the center, to just a simple solitaire is definitely a big change. Plus it could save him money as well so I told him about it. 🙂
Before I ramble any more… pleeease tell me some of you Bees have shown your SOs rings you would love?
[And for the record, please know that although this thread is full of ring talk, I’m not all about the ring. Obviously it’s more than that, it’s about spending our lives together.]
