    promise rings?

    Advertisements
    What do they mean to you? Pre-engagement, too lazy/scared to actually be engaged... what is the down low on promise rings?

    DB has mentioned wanting to talk about this, and I like it... I am just no sure what it means?

    I had this talk with Tim. I won't post my opinion here because I don't want to offend anyone.

    They work in some relationships though I have friends who have had them.

    I don't know the real meaning behind it, but DH always said, if he was going to get any kind of ring, it was going to be an engagement ring, that's making a promise as well.

    A promise ring to me means that it is a promise to one day propose to you! Atleast that is what DH meant when he gave me mine. He proposed about 3 weeks later!

    DB gave me a promise ring (.5 TW in diamonds!!!) this past Christmas. When he gave it to me, he said it meant I'm his intended.

    DB gave me one a couple years ago. The meaning behind it for us is that he intends to ask me to marry him but for now, I'm his and no one else's and vice versa.

    I always wondered exactly what promise rings were about.
    Also another question though....which hand do you wear it on??? 'Cause if it's intended to be like a "pre-engagement" ring, do you wear it on the left hand? Or since it's not an engagement ring, do you go for the other?
