We all want a dreamy proposal. If you’re a hopeless romantic, you could feel crushed if you don’t like the engagement ring your partner picked. The situation itself is tricky- you don’t want to hurt anybody’s feelings, but you also don’t want to give up on the ring of your dreams.
How to handle a situation?
First of all, you shouldn’t make a big deal out of it. Enjoy the other aspects of being engaged. We’ve seen this happen quite often, especially when it comes to rings that have sentimental value.
What to do if your initial reaction wasn’t pleasant?
The initial reaction varies from person to person, so don’t worry about it. It’s crucial to talk with your partner. Don’t forget that the ring is just an item- the love of your significant other is present, and that is the most important thing of all. Address your partner about the issue and apologize if your reaction wasn’t right.
What to do if you haven’t told your partner you don’t like the ring?
For those who chose to suffer in silence, it gets harder and harder. The solution is to stop masking the feelings. Your partner will understand and love you the same.
How to tell your fiance?
Be extremely mindful and be careful not to hurt your partner’s feelings. Take a polite approach. Then you decide together what to do with the ring. You can either keep it, exchange it for another one or make minor alterations to it.
How to apologize?
Be aware that you don’t need to apologize for not liking the ring. You are allowed to feel whatever you want. However, you should apologize for the unpleasant reaction.
What to do if you choose to change the ring?
After the toughest part, you can pick the ring of your dreams. If you decide to alter it, go to the jeweler, and consult him. Be open to their suggestions but know what you want as well.
