Mmmm in this case I would have been a little scared in his shoes, imagine you think it's just a nice gift for your girlfriend and she starts acting overjoyed. I'd hate for her to think it's a proposal or anything when it's not... I wouldn't know how to handle that situation either. Especially on the spot!
The words every girl wants to hear after being given a ring. *sigh* So romantic.
Messed with you? How is the bf messing with her? Oh wait, you're one of "those girls" aren't you? You think that you are owed a proposal just because you have time in. Get a grip bitch, maybe the bf wanted to get a nice ring for her without implying he was ready for marriage.
To be fair, a ring doesn't always mean proposal. And he probably just thought it made a sweet present.
Finally..! Someone with sense! It's just a present! Besides if he actually got her a ring for Christmas and proposed with it too there'd be another FML saying OMG my boyfriend is so cheap he combined my Christmas present and my wedding ring! There's no end to the cribbing!
#27.. If after 5 years of being together and he never gave her a ring before. She probably assumed he was proposing. A lot of people do get married or propose when they give their significant other a ring. That's usually what that kind of gift means. Now, I am not saying that means she can be ungrateful. It's just that a ring can be misleading and may be better as a gift only when there is an intention of marriage. She probably felt after 5 years that he was finally proposing. Also it was a little mean of her boyfriend to say that the ring doesn't mean anything. He could have instead said that the ring is a symbol of his love and the successful 5 years they have spent together and his appreciation of her. He could have even claimed it was a promise ring. Lol It's a FHL because he chose a poor choice of words and. YDI because she jumped to conclusions before he explained.
I have to agree with 7... I gave a ring as a gift to an ex once. And she took it as a promise ring even though I tried and tried to explain it was just a nice gift. I have expensive tastes and like nice things so, when I have the money to, I like to give nice (and more than likely expensive) gifts.
After 5 years, you either need to $#@% or get off the pot. I will never understand people who need 10 years to handwring over whether the person they're acting like they're already married to (living together, sex, kids, split expenses) is "the one." Seriously, if you don't know after 5 years, there's your sign.
A ring doesn't always mean something like a proposal or a promise ring, but it should still be a bit meaningful!
