Ring Guy Here… With all the Stories & Great Advice, I Found what I was Looking For
So, after much reading, a ton of calls and driving around, I have found what I was looking for. And luckily, even though I found a great steal for a nearly new ring, I feel like the ring I found right up the Ally I was looking for.
Here is the ring. A little more flashy than she would first prefer, but the price was great and the timing was almost written in the stars as I was lead to the seller by a coincidental conversation about something completely unrelated. The Grey Cup of all things. Haha
So, this is done. But now, I am being hit with a huge reality stick. Even though I am a hair older than 40, I feel like a frightened 12 year old at a school dance. How do I pop the question?!?
I am not the kind of guy that who will pop the question on Xmas, New Years or Valentines. It has to just be right. I may have her open it on Christmas Day. Or I will be carrying this little box with me for a long time. The timing has to be perfect. And I am not gifted with enough romance to plan a vacation, a fancy restaurant or smart enough to get her family together as a surprise moment.
But I do know, I will have only one chance. I don’t want to waste it.
Once again, wish me luck Edmonton. It given me energy, drive and hope.
And to this who think I am being stupid, harsh on myself or think I shouldn’t be getting married at all (I’ve read all the responses) I hope you will feel my happiness one day.
