does he know you were unhappy with the proposal?

I think the dinner and giving him a ring is a great idea-some special romantic time for just the two of you.

I think he may misinterpret your intent as criticism if you ask him to redo the proposal. I think I would leave well enough alone in that regard.

I might give him a watch or some other token besides a ring. A ring to a guy means wedding band, but a watch may be a gift. You’re saying that you love and appreciate him and are happy to spend your life with him, but you’re not proposing.

I’m sure you’ve thought of this, but what about a small wedding sooner rather than later, if that’s what you’re actually upset about?

ETA: Oh… I missed the giving him your ring back part. Well, that might not be a good idea. I actually kinda sorta did that… my proposal was lame (at the time), and we were walking around the national mall a month or so later… I asked him to propose again. He did, and it was fine. But, I always tell my original story. After the dust settled, I found his proposal cute and unique, even though it was certainly not what I had envisioned.

I think proposing to him would be a really sweet gesture. However, I think that giving your ring back to him to re-propose isn’t a great idea. I think it will send the message of “my first proposal wasn’t good enough so you need to do it again” rather than “I’m all in, and I can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with you!”

@sherryberry:  I think resizing and engraving the watch is a fantastic idea!
