I've been with my boyfriend for three years now and we've been talking about getting married for a VERY long time. So long that he gave me a date he'd propose by, because I started getting upset that he still hadnt asked. I kind of felt like he was just playing with my head, all talk, no action.
Anyway, he passed his own deadline and after two more months I finally broke down and said something, something I DID NOT want to do because I feel like that's making him marry me, even though I know he wants to.
He responded by telling me he's strapped for money and trying to Save, I asked him how much he'd saved at this point, because a few months earlier he told me I was going to be so impressed with how much he'd done. Well, come to find out he'd saved nothing. Apperently he traded stock, something alOng those lines but it turned out to only make him a few bucks??
Anyway, I got upset and told him, for the HUNDRETH time, that the price of the ring means squat to me. I rather it be fake anyway and save the money for more important things in our future. He literally acted shocked and told me I had never said that before, LIE! Well, then he started saying how now he can actively shop and get me a ring knowing he doesn't have to spend over a hundred bucks.
Here's my problem...he went out and spent over $500 about a year ago on a computer and literally days after saying how relieved his is not to have to spend a hundred bucks on a ring, he got his computer fixed, spending over $300 for it?!
So obviously he HAS the money, just for things he WANTS to spend it on.
I feel kind of selfish feeling this way, and feel free to put me in my place if I deserve it, but what the heck?! I feel like I don't mean enough for him to spend a hundred bucks on a ring that Im supposed to wear FOREVER! I didn't even expect him to, but now that he made it clear he's happy that he doesn't have to, I'm kind of pissed.
What do y'all think?
