Bought a pretend ring for myself.......

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

I want to get engaged so badly but we can't afford it right now and I don't tell my boyfriend how sad I am about NOT being engaged.

I bought myself a fake engagement ring on EBay that I wear when I am alone.  Sadly it does make me feel better.  I know one day he will propose I am not worried about that but sometimes I feel a little silly.

Comment away I just had to tell someone about my little secret.

based on our plans it will be about 3 years i ironically suggested 4 yr plan so the money wont be as tight until then but he hates paying interest same way I hate to pay for shipping

You most likely will never be able to fully pay off your credit card bills and a house will take more than three years so you would be waiting a long time.

Not everyday is perfect but we are happy.  He is used to getting his way.  His family listens to every word he says he says so he is learning to communicate better.

He gets flustered if you disagree so I have been working on it with him.  He can be selfish but I blame his family for making him like that.

Why can't you get engaged with the ring you have and then when he has the money, get you a nicer one?

Quoting Anonymous:

You are right but it doesnt seem real unless there is a ring.  My best friend has "engaged" without a ring and I didnt believe that she was engaged for like a year because she didnt have a ring.

I know its silly

Quoting Megan11587:


Well you are right. If he hasn't proposed then they definitely are not engaged. I just mean if a couple want to be engaged then they can be, even without a ring.

Weddings don't take years. My husband and I met, five weeks later we were engaged and five days after that we married.

Find out if he really wants to commit. You deserve someone who wants something more than playing house with you.
