5.  What if I hate the ring he’s picked out?

This is a toughie, but something that is quite common especially in the case of precious family heirlooms.  He’s finally popped the question, but once he’s popped the box open he pulls out something that is completely ancient and outdated, or gaudy and not your style.  As we stated previously, this is something that you will have to wear on your finger for the rest of your life, and if it’s something you hate, it is more likely you are going to “lose” it, not make it very visible on your hand (turn the stone into your palm) or avoid wearing it at all.

So honesty is the best policy if you just absolutely can’t get over how unsightly you feel the ring is.  On the other hand, it’s important to recognize that the love you share is bigger than the ring on your finger no matter how many carats it is.  Be mindful of his feelings and the fact that he’s invested much of his time and energy into making this a perfect moment, and that he’s battled a bundle of nerves leading up to this very moment.
