How to Deal with Receiving an Engagement Ring You Hate ...


It’s one of the best days of your life. Your boyfriend has just presented you with a special little box. Your joy is soaring as you pop the lid only to be confronted with a ring that makes your heart sink. What on earth do you do when presented with an engagement ring you hate?

1. Don’t Panic!

Getting proposed to with a ring that you really hate can bring up a number of worrying thoughts, perhaps the biggest of all being that if he chose a ring that is so not you, then how well does he really know you overall? Before you let these thoughts take over, please just take a minute and take a breath! The key thing to remember is that, even if he doesn’t have knowledge of your jewelry preferences, he clearly loves you enough to ask you to spend the rest of your life with him. Surely that trumps everything!
