Uh yea, moving in right away is a super-no when you've never actually MET.

Maybe spend a week together shacked up to feel it out. That's insane they'd even consider doing that.

Got a good buddy that asked me on engagement ring if I knew of a place to get (I don't know jack since I'm not married, he asked me since he knew I have a lot of friends married and figured I may know a thing or two lol). Any shops that offer custom rings that's reasonable in cost that you guys can shed opinion on? I don't know, like $2-5K budget? I told him to google search it but seems like they don't really tell you cost.

just go to spence and take the gf to choose so you get an idea on what shape & resize later.

Due to covid, gf and i are planning to get thsi done during covid; i'm leaning towards moving to a new city + buying a house + wedding.

I want to get a CZ ring as a 'travel ring' and then she can pick whatever she wants on her own as a real one. last thing is her to look at a ring i chose that she doesn't like the shape.

I have no clue on what prices are like now, but in theory, diamonds should have gotten cheaper since some international body has ruled that the diamond industry is no longer allowed to distinguish between synthetic diamond and "authentic" natural diamonds.

Being a brokea$$ / cheapa$$ at the time when I proposed to my wife, I did not get her a diamond ring, although I did get her a ring. Instead, after she accepted, I asked how important it was for her to have me get her a proper engagement ring (with a diamond on it). If she wanted one, we will buy one. Or, we could use the money on both the wedding and on home reno to get our apartment ready for us to move into. She took the 2nd option and she still loved the cheapa$$ ring that I bought her for the proposal.

I would say that moissanite and white sapphire are fancier alternatives than CZ that present quite a bit better. But they are also more expensive than CZ.

Whatever floats your (and her) boat, you know?

Take a look at this thread.

https://www.revscene.net/forums/6987...ng-advice.html

A lot of good advice here as I recently had gone through this process. TL;DR: I was close to pulling the triggers on Brilliant Earth but found something way less than Brilliant Earth and to exact specifications while saving over $2000 from buying online. Nevermind in store.

anyone ever feel the stress and balance of life is too overwhelming?

the balance of work, family and relationship has gotten the best of me.
i really need a me day.
everyday i go in the garage and see my car in a torn up state; i get so stressed that i don't have any time for myself to work on the car.

On Friday, i told a lie to the GF and family that i had to work late. but in fact i had a small roadtrip to pick up a racecar with a friend out of town.
it was the best night i've had in a long time, felt like a kid again just doing whatever the fuck i wanted. even though we didn't get home til 3am. it was actually like a holiday for me.
is this a bad thing?

Is it possible to let your gf know that you're feeling burnt out and you want to chill with the boys? That way you don't have to sneak around?

If it's Covid where your gf/family doesn't want you to go out, that's understandable you lied to get a breather. But other than that, I can't really seem how it would be healthy on the long run for you to lie, leads to communication issues down the road. Can just tell them, your tired and need to take a night off to rest?

In regards to the ring much like dukes posted, blue Nile all the way.

Spence snd all the local places are shit and you’re paying GIA prices for non Gia-rated diamonds.

I’d rather buy a ring from Costco than Spence

Bought my wife's ring from Blue Nile many many years ago.
Had them secretly ship the ring to our hotel in NYC so there was no taxes since the head office was in Washington at the time.

Needless to say, GF/Wife was surprised by the ring.

She wore the ring onto the plane home. Tossed away the not important stuff. Mailed myself the important documents.

It’s 4+ Years ago since I purchased my wife’s engagement ring but blue Nile had one of the best systems/website I’d ever used and amazing customer experience all around. I felt better served with them necer actually talking to anyone than the numerous stores I physically want into locally

Got a wayyyy nicer diamond for the price as well

told my GF how i felt and she totally took it the wrong way.

we haven't been talking since Sunday.

I've gotten so much work done on my car and i generally feel so much less weight off my shoulders.
I know this sounds and looks really bad. but I don't "miss her" one bit.

*please don't respond, we all know what i should do..... or at least consider at this point

Sounds like I responded too late, but I did this once, and my gf at the time took it as I didn't miss her / I don't want her anymore / I'm tired of her LOLOL

"You'd rather hang out with the boys than hang out with me" ... Yes. LOL

Sounds like those needy biatches or those that have literally zero hobbies (type that either goes to school and goes home, or goes to work and goes home, where their life is only surrounded by their 8-5 job/school).

When in a dating relationship, a person shouldn't really have to change to accommodate the lifestyle of the other person. If it's brutal now, imagine being married LOL. Guys have guy time and girls also have girl time, everyone needs their own time to do their own shit.

Totally agree with you guys.

However, I wonder if she has mutual hobbies with you (ones that you both enjoy) that you can do together? The reason is, if you're both doing something together to achieve a goal, then it gives you a purpose for spending time together.

What I hated most about this one girl I dated was that we weren't doing any activities together, and when we hang out she just ends up talking about random stuff (mostly about her own life) and it gets very boring/emotionally draining. It wasn't that I hated being around her, it was that we weren't doing anything meaningful together.

some ideas might be: going to the gym, going for a walk/biking outdoors (trails, seawall), taking an improv class together, playing video games together, board games, etc.

i insist on
1) alone time
2) boys time
3) joint times.

this way, you get to come back with diff perspectives which makes things much easier on each other.
