Valentine's Day is quickly approaching and you are wondering if you gonna get that cute little box containing the ring.If he didn’t pop the question, the “Day of Love” may have turned into a bit of a reality check. It most likely will not happen.
A ring does not automatically mean marriage, it can be just a symbol of love and a promise.
Today, there are a few ways to describe the meaning of promise rings. Each promise ring is given as an expression of a certain promise two people have made with one another. Some of the most common promise ring meanings include:
- Friendship: Good friends sometimes exchange promise rings that symbolize the commitment to always be there for one another.
- Monogamy:Promise rings are often exchanged as symbols of a mutual commitment to remain monogamous while in a romantic relationship.
- Pre-engagement: Perhaps the most common meaning of a promise ring for couples is the commitment to a relationship that is headed toward engagement. When you feel that your partner is the right one for you but you aren’t quite ready for marriage, a promise ring is also known as a pre-engagement ring.
- Promises to Yourself: In some cases, a person may buy a promise ring for herself to serve as a reminder to stay strong and committed to a certain cause. These rings may remind the wearer to be true to herself, to stay away from negative influences, or to maintain a positive attitude in the face of adversity.
So I did, I bought some rings for myself to remind me that I am awesome and strong in many ways.
|My door is always open|
The door is open for now but one day I do want to do things behind closed doors and that may require a stronger commitment.
