I can’t read bloggy-blogs at work so i can’t comment specifically on the text, but it sounds like she is jealous / missing her bf. I would be very direct in this situation, b/c she needs friends right now. I would tell your Boyfriend or Best Friend right away, so that he didn’t find out whisper down the lane style and think you were gabbing to acquaintances about “pushing him into getting married”.  Then I would call her up and ask her to remove her post, it sounds kind of nasty from what you’re saying. If you tell her exactly why it’s hurtful, she should take it down, and if she doesn’t then you’ll know where you guys stand.  Good luck!

Wow, I completely disagree with everything she wrote in her blog. Yes, Its a sweet gesture that men do for women, but more importantly it should be an adult decisions that TWO people should make together. GONE  are the days where a woman has no opinion on marriage and THEIR own lives. Tell her she needs to get outta of the 50’s

thats harsh. i know my bf specifically asked me what type of ring i like because he wants me to love it. it works better for some people that way, so who is she to say that? maybe it’s not for her, but who died and made her queen of the world?

i’m sorry you have to read that though – like, i would say it’s uncalled for. i would agree with Melissabegins and say that she’s jealous. probably the fact that you’re ring shopping and she’s not would do it…

Oh, and just to add…. Ring shopping (like you said) was something that me and my Boyfriend or Best Friend both decided on because HE wanted to make sure he got me something that i really, really loved. I had never tried on an engagement ring before that and I was so surprised at what I ended up loving. (not what I had been researching online)

I would always look up round cut diamonds and ended up loving cushion cuts and emerald cuts.

Everyone has an opinion so I would just let it go at that. Ring shopping is now the big trend …why not? You are required to wear it for the rest of your life- it should be something you like and enjoy. (Besides where is her ring? Exactly- she doesn’t have one. so don’t let her ruin this for you!)

I feel the same way you do regarding ring shopping.

I went shopping with the boy, and I showed him styles I liked. I by no means told him he had to get an exact one, or what diamond to put it the setting, or when or how to propose. 

She is entitled to her opinion but she definitely shouldn’t have posted this right after you sent her the email. She should have told you how she feels, and reiterated that you are entitled to your opinion as well.

She definitely personally attacked you! So rude! She sounds annoying and jealous! I left this comment on her blog:
“My fiance and I went engagement ring shopping and it was HIS idea. Everytime we would pass a ring store he would say “ooh lets go look at watches” and somehow we would wander over to the rings and he would be like want to try them on for fun?! He told me after we got engaged he had no idea what I liked and he wanted to get an idea. He ended up picking out the perfect ring based on the clues I had given him and we’re both completely happy with it 🙂
Your guy (if you ever get one) is going to want to know what you will love because he wants you to LOVE the ring he gets you.”

I don’t think looking at rings together is pressuring the guy AT ALL. My fiance and i have been together going on 8 years, so it felt natural to finally look at rings together. We went to quite a few different stores and tried on many different rings. He ended up getting me the one I liked the best. I had no idea he purchased that particular ring and the proposal was a complete surprise. Now I have a ring I love and my SO loves that I was able to get a ring he knew I would like. 🙂

I think she got rid of the post. I read it and then was going to re-read it and maybe post a comment but it isn’t there anymore.
