I recently caught a rerun of the Sex and the City episode when Aidan proposed to Carrie with a ring that made her vomit. Literally. When she met the girls to tell them all about it, Samantha used the old cliché, "wrong ring, wrong guy!" And in response to my Handle This from a few days back, Ginger Snaps expressed the same belief.
Now different people place different emphasis on engagement rings. Some opt for something minimalist, while others want a ring that's over the top, but if you don't talk about it with your significant other, there's plenty of room for error. So if you were truly surprised by a proposal, and the ring wasn't exactly what you wanted, would you think he wasn't the right guy for you after all? Where do you stand on the saying wrong ring, wrong guy?
