My engagement ring is a small .10-carat ring. I dislike everything about it except for the person that gave it to me, well in his eyes, I should hate him as well.
I was devastated with my proposal. Well not entirely, the best part was my daughter handing the ring over to me. The proposal took place in a parking lot. It was nothing like I had imagined or hoped it would be and then came the kicker. I opened the box only to find this small tension ring with a .10 carat, princess-cut diamond in the center. I loved the setting, hated the diamond or lack of. My initial reaction was how could he do this to me but then seeing him on one knee, my heart said the ring doesn't matter, my mind was screaming otherwise. I accepted the proposal as anyone woman would that loves the man that is asking.
Everyone gives me the inferior look when they see my ring. And those that have balls actually say something about the ring. I am embarrassed when showing it off, worst of all I can’t even take of picture of it because the pictures don’t come out. My impending wedding has no date, venue, and any question involving has remained unanswered after three months. Everything went south ever since the proposal. Partially because of my resentment and the other part is his lack of interest in even planning a wedding. Plus everything he looks at is out of our price range. We love each other dearly, but I am just so upset at the entire thing. We have tried communicating about all these issues and it’s just making things worse. Am I overreacting or do I have reason to be upset about everything?
