Eric got me a Promise Ring for our 3-Month Anniversary<33 It's Sterling Silver and real Diamond!
Words don't even begin to describe how happy this made me and how much of a wonderful boyfriend he is to me.
A lot of people see it as an Engagement Ring... o//u//o Which... is fine with me. It felt really amazing to have my boss yell out to our customers, "We have an engaged girl in the building!" and all the customers were telling me congratulations and how gorgeous my ring is.
So, it's technically a Promise Ring. But nonetheless. i love it and I wear it proudly and I'm so freaking happy!
And our 3-Month Anniversary isn't till Monday, the 3rd. But the Ring got here a few days early. Which is fine cuz I wanted it sooooo badly o///e And I really wanted to show y'all guys... XD
Thank you! >//w//< And I helped ahaha. He didn't want to pick out one I wouldn't like. XD We went through a bunch of rings, and we had like 5 picked out I think. And I was like, "I. Reeeeeeally. Like this one. ;u; " and he bought it and shipped it to me. x)
Well, it also depends on how serious y'all are, yah know? Eric and I have already talked about moving in together and marrying each other. We're very committed to one another, and love each other very much. And someone had brought it up to him to get me a Promise Ring, and so he did for our 3-Month Anniversary ^//^
Well that's good!(: You shouldn't really need a Promise Ring if you already know you're so serious. Eric and I are in a long distant relationship at the moment, and we've had a lot of struggling along the way... And a Promise Ring was a great way for him to tell me, "Look. I'm serious about us. Wearing that ring... that means I'm promising you that we'll be together no matter what and that I love you." Maybe your boyfriend will get you one! (: You never know. Like I said, someone mentioned it to Eric. I don't think I had ever really thought about getting a Promise Ring either. I really like it though.. It is something special to me. I hope your boyfriend gets you one. But there's no need to rush it. ^.^
Don't worry! Worrying only makes things worse. I've worried over so many things about Eric and I, and afterward I think about how silly I was. And you really don't need a Promise Ring.. ): It's not something every couple has, yah know. If you really want one, why don't you ask? He'll never know if you don't bring it up somehow! As I've learned, he can't read your mind. Lol. Maybe bring it up in a settle way? Be like, "Oh, this girl on DA got a Promise Ring from her boyfriend! That's so nice! It was so pretty too! I think Promise Rings are a great idea." or something like that. And Eric and I get jealous too for no reason. :3 It just means he cares. (At least to me, that's what it means.) I get jealous over the littlest of things. If Eric's family wants to go out, I tend to get jealous cuz I wanna talk to Eric and be with him, and I can't! I get jealous when he goes to school or work, cuz I can't talk to him. I don't mean to be, but it's just because I care. It's not a bad thing to want to talk to the one I love and have his attention. I'm sure it's nothing. (: And if it bothers you, maybe talk to him about it? Once again, I learned that nothing can be resolved if you don't talk about it lol. I've learned a lot of lessons with Eric. If something bothers us, we try to talk about it. Even if we don't like it or don't want to. It won't get resolved if you keep thinking about it and worrying about it but never truly get the answer. If he really loves and cares about you, then he'll be more than happy to talk to you and ease your mind. (: Y'all have been together for 14 months you say? That's so good! I'm happy for y'all! You must be really close then. I don't see why it would be a problem to talk to him about a Promise Ring, or even asking why he's getting jealous over nothing. It doesn't hurt to talk about your feelings.
Well, then that shouldn't be a problem. (: Sometimes you can't afford the things you want right away. I want to move in with Eric right now, but we can't. I gotta finish College here first, and him and his family need to move into a new house after he graduates. Sooo.. We still gotta wait about a year or two before that can happen. And even then, we still gotta talk to his parents about it, and we both gotta save up money and I gotta be able to find a job where he lives. Soo.. It sucks... But we gotta wait and be patient. And as I've said before, it's just a Promise Ring... I'm not saying that it sucks and it has no meaning, because I love my Promise Ring and it's the greatest gift I've ever received... (Mainly because it's from Eric and it truly means something e.e ) But an engagement ring or a Wedding ring will mean the same thing, and even more. (: And you can wait for those. So, not having a Promise Ring is really not a big deal.. As I've said before, not every couple has one, and it's not something that's just needed in a relationship. It's nice to have one, but it's not needed to be committed.
It's kind of like a pre-engagement ring. (: Basically it's a Promise to always be there and be committed. It can also mean "purity." As in, both partners are virgins and they promise to be each other's firsts. My boyfriend and I are in a long distant relationship, so things are tough on us. And a Promise Ring is one of his ways to let me know that no matter what, we'll be together and that we're in a committed relationship and that he loves me.
