all of a sudden everyone has a huge cushion cut diamond…. but anyway make sure if you get an oppourtunity to look at rings with him you only show him stuff in his price range so he doesn’t freaek out that he won’t really be getting you what you want

Guys are so weird about these things. I guess you really don’t notice it until you get to the ‘engagement is imminent’ stage. Men and their pride!

My SO does admit that the whole experience gets stressful. Or he looks visibly more stressed nowadays. Girls look at this stuff all day but most guys don’t care about diamonds or how big they are or how they’re cut. Maybe he thought that’s what you wanted?

Lots of guys feel pressured to drop a stack of cash for a ring. Just let him know you’ll be fine with a more “normal” ring. 🙂

My SO is the same way.  We’re on really tight budgets and I know he worries about the cost.  I’ll make comments sometimes when seeing pics like that about how crazy the ring is, how I’d be afraid I’d take someones eye out with it, etc.  I’m trying to ease his stress by reminding him that I don’t like huge expensive rings, but I think sometimes just bringing up rings stesses him.

I think it may be an American thing with the “big” ring. I would just keep expressing how you would rather have a home, no debt, and be responsible than a big ring. Hell you can get a big ring if it’s something other than a diamond.  Very cute that he cares so much.:)
