Put a (big?) ring on it

I’m not one of those women who dreamed about their wedding day since childhood.  I’m sure I pictured having a family at some point but weddings and engagements just didn’t seem on my radar.  I remember when one of my friends got engaged last year and she was sort of horrified at the way her then boyfriend proposed. She was even more disappointed in the size of the ring.  I found it odd because she didn’t seem the type to get hung up on this kind of thing.

How important is the ring and the proposal, though?  When you are watching the person you (hopefully!) love spill out their heart and risk the ultimate rejection, is their ring selection really an issue?    A lot of my male friends tell me that if their woman even uttered a complaint about their engagement ring, it’s going back to the store. Not sure if they have found themselves in this situation but if it happened, I think they mean it!

Ladies, would the size of an engagement ring make a difference when you know they can afford something bigger and more elaborate?

What is the protocol when the ring becomes an issue? Ignore it? Discuss it? How do you handle it?

Lady J I was just looking up the concert this morning, because I wanted to know the date. I told a friend I would come to his card party and I realized the concert was going on during that time. Long story short I did not see anything either.

If they cancel that show I am going to be PO’ed big time

The Maxwell show is not canceled! Phillips Areana is looking for people to pass out flyers for free tickets. They just posted it on my Facebook page…

@I am ~ your question was have you ever loved someone and they didn’t love you back. That’s a lot different than telling some you love them and they didn’t reply back (at least in my book).

I think Carlito said his workload was picking up or something last week, and that he wouldn’t be able to blog as much….i could be way wrong tho.

@Slim thanks…I miss Carlito!

@Melo is this a different she is talking about? I think we need more facts. In I am defense (not saying this is right) sometimes you move along to the next person pretty fast to try to get over the hurt the first person left you.

Melo – I know what you are saying, and I basically gave my take on it in response to her original question. I never say I love you first to a dude. But she’s already done it, so no use crying over spilled milk. She put herself out there with the ex and he shot her down, said he didn’t feel the same about her. She’s not a baby. If she didn’t learn from experience and put herself out there again, what more is there to say. Some folks have to learn the hard way. Sometimes you take a chance & it works. You roll the dice. Hey, what can I say?

SlimOne...Single Sex in the City

I’ve told someone I loved them and they didn’t say I love you back…but if you feel that way, you feel that way regardless of if they tell you back or not. I wasn’t expecting the same in return so it wasn’t that big of a deal.

Melo

i think I am needs to get her self esteem right be4 taking any more steps with dudes…

there are guys a dime a dozen out there so no need for speed……

speed will get her more hurt ……..

Melo I agree on that speed thing and dating.

@lady j check your email and let us know why melo was emailing you…lol! What if he is saying some of that stuff he say on the blog you know what I mean….lmao

I am whatever you say I am

Melo,

The dude that is in question is the same dude (the ex)
there is a lot you don’t know so it’s only right that you would make only 1/2 assumptions
