So I'm not quite engaged yet. Dearest Boyfriend wants me to be able to do something for him before he considers us engaged. Basically I have to be able to watch a whole season of a show I hate on principle and enjoy it. I think it's a great idea actually, it's an exercise in acceptance really.
Anyway, he doesn't want to give me a ring (long story, waaaaay too long and complicated to post here). How do I signify to other people that I'm engaged (when it happens)? Do I buy my own ring? Is that a bit sad? Do I just buy a costume jewellery ring and wear that?
