    I got my girlfriend a promise ring for Christmas.. which is something I've never done for a girl previously, as I consider her my first true love. i'm 20 blah blah blah, if you want details, ask. lol My point is.. what do you think is the significance of a promise ring? btw her and I had only been official for a month when I got it, but... I can honestly say I'm pretty madly in love with her. I'd not spend 300+ on a ring for just any girl, so yeah. Also.. she didn't get me anything like that.. but she pretty much had to know I was getting her one, as well.. I asked her ring size and I basically suck with surprises unless it's a spur of the moment thing. Should this be of concern or am I just being an over-analyzing douche? :mamoru:

    I would have waited at least 6 months, so you know you still want to be with her after the honeymoon phase wears off...but oh well.

    Hope it ends up working out for you!

    hah, yeah...most people get promise rings when they've at least been together a while and know they are in it for the "long haul." A necklace or regular ring would have sufficed, but hey, now she'll think you will eventually get married, so good luck!

    It means she owns you, so I'm pretty much predicting the end of your relationship. Expect her to be getting railed by a 'badboy' in T-minus-4 months.

    I'm quite certain I want to be with her for quite a while. I thought about it for a good 2 weeks, and honestly she's everything I've ever wanted in a girl(and she says the same to me.. she does "cute" things all the time as well), so yeah. I thought about it before doing it, and figured that was the most genuine gift I could give her on x-mas.

    Her parents take it as a "regular" ring, but I bought it as a promise ring. I know I'm in it for the long haul - I'm certain she is as well.

    Thank you.

    you sound completely whipped.
    she's going to get bored with you and either a)become a bitch to you; b)cheat on you.

    i personally dont agree with promise rings, if you want to marry her, ask her, why promise you will...just get an engagement ring, and have a long engagement if time is your concern

    :rofl:

    It's impossible to get bored with me. She's concerned that I'm bored with HER, given my lifestyle up until her and I got together and hers overall.

    My life, up until her, was in essence a life in the fast lane.

    It was more a gesture to show that I'm committed to her and all of that than me promising that we'd get married. I don't necessarily agree with marriage.. I view it more as an institution rather than an act of love. :noes:

    Why?

    I think you're assuming I'm someone who's incredibly boring, has no confidence, etc., which is pretty far off.

    That may be true, but where is the CHALLENGE in promising her your exclusivity? I AM exclusive with my LTR, but I take every opportunity to subcommunicate to her that I am not.

    And being a 'badboy' is not about tatoos. It's about how you treat her.

    I don't know why you think everyone assumes you are boring. Everyone is skeptical because you are 20 years old and giving a promise rings to a girl you've been dating a month.

    Promise rings are for people who are insecure in the relationship

    I wonder what HER reaction to this is? A promise ring after one month is a little strong...it could come across as "OMG I LOVE YOU!!! BE WITH ME FOREVER AND HAVE MY CHILDREN!!!!" You know, the scary super needy type of thing.

    It's been a month. Have you guys even had a fight yet?

    This is what I was thinking. You said that you bought the ring after you were in the relationship for a month and had been thinking about it for 2 weeks? It sounds really impulsive. I agree with others that it would have been a good idea to wait.

    But I don't want to be a jag, so good luck.

    I'd agree it's impulsive, as I'm an impulsive individual.. :o

    I've got to agree with the question posed by the guys above... what was her reaction to it? It doesn't really matter what we think the significance of a promise ring is. It matters what she thinks it is. I think it's kinda individual what it means. Maybe that's because I'm older and promise rings weren't really ever a big thing for me... but it seems like it means different things to different people. So, knowing what we think doesn't really matter.
