    I advise against it, especially if you have no clue what it means...

    IMO promise rings are outdated and dumb. Back in the day guy would give thier gf a promise ring until they could afford an engagement ring. If you really want to give her a ring just do it as a gift. And if you want to marry her then wait till you can afford the diamond.

    Engagement = agreement to enter into a marriage at some point in the future - basically a promise to get married

    Promise ring = promise to get engaged. Basically you're promising to promise, which is logically identical to just promising. Either skip the promise ring in favor of an engagement ring or else if you're not ready for that then bounce the whole silly promise ring idea.

    Promise rings are rather pointless IMO, its just an engagement for an engagement. If you want to marry her just get her an engagement ring.

    I gave my girlfriend a promise ring a couple months ago.

    It was more of just a gift, you know. Single diamond setting.

    Agreed. They're quite the throwback to the old days when jewelry was even harder to afford than now.

    To me, it either is or it isn't. If you gave it to her as a gift then it's a ring that you bought as a gift. If you gave it to her as a promise to get engaged, then why didn't you just ask her to marry you?

    Not flaming, just curious why people do this.

    I wouldn't. And this has been in my head for the last couple of weeks with my g/f and I decided against it... If I don't have the balls to ask her to marry me yet I'm not going to promise her I will.

    I like to make commitments. This is a commitment to her from me. I'm not going to ask her to marry me for another year, saying everything works out from now on.

    I wanted to see how receptive she was to the idea, to see if we were on the same page.

    some time in middle school i'd say, any time after that and she's going to think she's still dating a 12 year old.
