I’m glad it worked out. Without knowing you and your SO, it still seems strange to me that he got a diamond ring as opposed to any other piece of jewelry to show his love. I hope you are not just rationalizing his actions to convince yourself that you are happy. But the bottom line is, if you’re truly happy and everything worked out, that’s great for you both!

Wow, I didn’t see your original post, but it seems like you’re trying really hard to have a healthy and positive attitude about your relationship, which is great. I’m glad that you’ve worked it all out and have resolved to be content. Smile

Agree w/ Girlwitharing –

I don’t think it makes you “ungrateful” to be somewhat sad it isn’t an e-ring… seriously, what did he expect you to think when you opened the box? 

I hope he could at least acknowledge where you were coming from, I don’t think you were “in the wrong” to feel the way you felt.

Yeah I have to agree with “Girlwitharing” . We dont mean to not be happy for you but why did you come on here and say how you were in the wrong because HE said so when you had many girls who were on your side???? hmmm doesnt sound too good. But hey if your happy…..

I’m glad you’re enjoying your ring, rightfully so!  However, maybe he shouldn’t have been so mean to you in his explanation…when I read this post, I was like “dang, ouch!”

Why is he “ripping you a new one” – that’s not cool under any circumstances…  You were there, so you know better, but… I hope he wasn’t as angry as it seems – maybe you meant he wasn’t SO angry as the words make it seem.  BUT you were voicing your feelings.  Most guys know you stay far away from diamond rings unless you are proposing – I think any woman in your position would have reacted just the same way.  I am glad things calmed down, but I wouldn’t totally discount your feelings – if some guy broke out a diamond ring, I would 1000000% think he was proposing and then feel really weird when I found he wasn’t.  To me, I think your feelings were valid, and I hope your SO can get to a place where he respects that.

Glad you had a talk and I can see how it would be an emotional subject when he probably put a lot of time and thought into the ring.  But at the same time, I hope he didn’t rip you a new one, your concerns seemed valid, and just because he does a lot for your family doesnt mean he might not at times hurt your feelings and I would hope he’d take your feelings into consideration.

I think it was the way you wrote it, but please don’t attack us if the majority reads what was written.

Furthermore, if what you wrote IS true (him getting upset) it’s unacceptable and the fellow bee’s agree based on the previous posts.

Being happy with your man is great but perhaps you should either tone down the writing or he shouldn’t express himself as rudely as it’s written.  I understand also that a ring doesn’t make a relationship!
