Get your dirty minds out of the gutter. I’m talking about engagement rings.
I must preface this post by saying that I have a beautiful ring that I absolutely love and I catch myself admiring it on a daily basis. This topic seems so materialistic which I am not (most of the time) so I feel weird writing about it. However, after hearing a discussion on the radio and realizing how many women are straight up assholes, I had to put in my 2 cents.
So, does the size, quality, whatever, of a diamond matter? The short answer: No.
This question was posed on a local radio station and they opened it up for discussion. Literally every woman who called in had outrageous comments about why they thought a big ring was important. A few gems:
“The size of the ring equates to the how much he loves you.” Yeah, it totally has nothing to do with what he’s able to afford. You’re just an idiot and I have zero patience for idiots.
“I’m the one who has to wear it for the rest of my life.” Does “first world problems” ring a bell?
“I would be embarrassed to show off my ring if it were smaller.” You’re a bitch.
I changed the station after that because I couldn’t listen to anymore stupidity.
Am I the weird one? Do people really care that much what other people think? When someone asks to see my ring I never think Oh no, are they going to like it? What if they think it’s too small? Or too big? Or they don’t like the cut? Because why the hell would I? It’s more like shit my nails look disgusting. I need a manicure. They’re definitely judging my gnawed nails right now. You know, the important stuff.
Again, maybe it’s easy for me to say because I do love my ring, but I’d still marry Tim if he got me a ring pop. AWWWWW. Not trying to be cute – who doesn’t love a good ring pop?
I literally did not even know what my ring looked like until after Tim had proposed and it was already on my finger. The shock started to wear off and it was like oh yea, I wonder what he picked. If you care that much about what your ring looks like, you should not be marrying that person. Plain and simple. This came up in conversation with some friends recently and that was pretty much the consensus so I know it’s not just me.
Anyone who thinks otherwise needs a reality check. Or a punch in the face.
