If you give a girl a promise ring...
Posted 17 June 2006 - 09:48 PM
I love him, I'm crazy about him, and we've touched on the subject of marriage a few times, but decided we are both too young.
But when he surprised me with a promise ring, I was happy that he was as serious as I am about our relationship.
The ring was a lot. Too much I can tell. Considering its white gold and has 3 diamonds in it, I estimate about 400$.
He's never given a girl a promise ring before. In fact his family is ecstatic about it. They alll really like me. I've gone and met all of them, and some of them visit me at work. Its crazy.
My dad likes my boyfriend, so does my aunt and stuff. But my dad is worried. He's like don't get married until you start your career. Cause he figured out how serious we've gotten.
So I wanna know... you know from the fellas.
What does it mean to you if you'd give a girl like me a ring like this?
Just to you know, see what you guys think.

ohhh you know I gave my gf a promise ring too. We have both discussed about marriage as well but of course we're too young to get married at this time. Althought our relationship makes it like we're married already. To give her a promise ring is to like promise them you'll be there for them when they need you, to take care of them and protect them with your live. Love them until the day they die. Spend every second of your life with this person. My gf is my everything. I've never been this serious in a relatioship with anyone before. I've never got this far in a relationship either. My promise ring to my gf is a promise to her that I will love her forever and I'm very sure about it at this point and that I will take care of her...to cherish her until death do us apart. No one and nothing can replace her. I told her all of this and gave her the ring. It's just a promise that I truly love her and that I won't ever leave her.
Took the words right out of my mouth except for the girlfriend part because I am single right now, and have never given one out but that is what I would give it out for.

When I got a ring for my girlfriend, it meant just that: that I wanted to continue in the same direction that we were going, that I felt like it was a strong relationship and getting stronger. I used to say it was there to hold her hand whenever I couldn't (we're a cheesy couple ) On a small level I used it to show that I was paying attention to her likes and dislikes; she likes jewelry, and she likes it in a certain style, and so that's what I got her. I even managed to get the right size (which she was surprised about ) and I got it without asking her specifically what she wanted, what size, etc. The fact that he surprised you with that ring means that he got it for you with a knowlegde of what both of you wanted, instead of having to ask you.
That's what it would mean from me.

That's really awesome that your boyfriend got you one though. My girlfriend and I's 2 year anniversary is coming up in August and we actually discussed promise rings. Im all for it, but just strapped for cash at the moment. We've talked about what it would be like to get married at our age, but yeah.....are you crazy? haha. Definatly way to young right here.
Promise rings are a great gift for the serious relationship.

You get the idea. At any rate, when I gave that ring, it meant that she meant everything to me, and, I guess in the back of my mind, I did intend to marry her (as much as a sophomore in high school can indend to do such a thing... heh.). Keep in mind that a promise is on both ends; he's making a promise to you, but by accepting it, you're making a promise to him. I know that things can happen to change a relationship; hell, people are always in a state of change. Just try your hardest. The most fragile part of a person tends to be their heart.
BTW, the girl I gave the ring to was my first gf, and I was her first bf. She still wears it, to this day

basically, from a hopelessly romantic writer's point of view, a promise ring is a physical manifestation of love, generated by tears, blood, sweat and sacrifice, thereby making it that much more special. somebody loves you so much, they'll buy a fancy ring for you, to make sure you know that it's more than just a bunch of words they call a promise.
