Tis the season (it comes earlier every year)…from Christmas, to New Year’s Eve straight through to Valentine’s Day she may be anxiously awaiting “The Ring”. Those are the top three dates when she will be anticipating the possibility of “The Ring”.
You are also treading the waters of expectation around your anniversary and her birthday – No matter if she says she’s not that kind of girl, she swears she doesn’t need it or want it, EVEN if you’ve agreed on not going in that direction anytime soon…
I personally guarantee from approx. 3 months into the relationship on – it crosses at least a teeny-tiny portion of her mind now and then AND “The Ring” industry knows this. Notice the amped up ads, they will keep churning out from the aforementioned time through at least Valentine’s day. Good luck.
1. A ring is always a nice gift – you don’t have to propose à la ABC’s Bachelor.
2. There is a Recession going on right now, so you can lean on that to conserve on rock size.
3. Just rent ‘Blood Diamond‘
All my Single Ladies,
We’ve all known, do know or will know a charming guy. Most apt to seek out and be wounded by a charming guy are those of us fathered by one.
Their prowess in “charm” has likely been honed over many years and many women. Sure they know the coolest places to go and can be fun at parties – but believe me, charm a solid partner does not make.
Lesson Learned – Charming means, “I’m cheating on you.”
