So, I'm the person that submitted this, I made an account to clear up confusion on my story. This wasn't an engagement ring, or a promise ring, just something to say that he loved me. The ring wasn't ridiculously expensive, and I'm grateful for it AND him, no matter what the price is. I wasn't complaining about him, more like ranting about what happened. I thought it was funny, and thought that other people might too. Trust me, I know that I'm very lucky, and fortunate to have a guy like him, even if he didn't take the moment seriously. But, that's what makes him special in my eyes, since he has a sense of humor. :)

I am totally on OP's side here. If he was proposing to her he should take it seriously and not ruin it. But then again, I'm an old soul in a young body and don't understand half the shit my generation does and I see most of it as pointless and immoral, but that's just me (and I guess OP).
Ring doesn't necessarily mean "promise" or "engagement." that's a pretty important detail, don't you think the op would have mentioned it? A ring is a ring-period. I received a fine jewelry ring as a birthday gift from a boyfriend and neither one of us harbored any delusions about the ring being anything more than a thoughtful and romantic birthday gift. And yes I would have cracked the eff up big time if he pulled the stunt described in the fml!
Well most women assume if a guy is giving them a ring, there's some level of commitment with it which is why it's a dumb idea for a guy to give a girl a ring as a random gift. If OP is one of those many women then she may not have felt the need to mention whether it was an engagement/promise ring. It's just unclear in the Fml. She should have said "engagement/promise ring" or "random for no apparent reason ring". The Fml staff should add another 50 characters to the limit so these can be more clear.
He was letting you know what he wanted in exchange for the ring.
