4reed0m Posted May 17, 2010 Share Posted May 17, 2010 Hello everyone, I'm excited to announce that I have decided to give my girlfriend a promise ring symbolizing a pre-engagement ring. It's something we've discussed a little here and there and I'm ready to surprise her with one soon. I know her size, what she likes and what kind of ring to avoid (mainly, one that could be confused with a actual engagement ring) and I've chosen a simple yet classy looking silver ring with 2 hearts side by side with a diamond in the middle of each heart. My only question is, how should I actually going about giving it to her? This is (naturally) new territory for me and none of my close friends (who I could openly ask about this) have either done a promise ring or would know the "proper" way to give one. I would think it should be something somewhat casual, yet done with a little bit of planning at the same time. Clearly it's certainly not anything to make a spectacle in public about, but other than that, I really don't know how I should go about this effectively...Also, I was thinking it might be a good idea to save doing this as a surprise on a "normal" day (i.e. not on a anniversary, birthday, holiday, etc.) so it be more significant. Suggestions/thoughts? I really see this girl as the one I want to be with, and true we haven't been together long enough for me to propose (being that I'm slightly old fashioned) but taking everything into account, this really does seem like a good time to do this and I really get the feeling she is thinking about this just as I am. Thanks! Link to comment
