What do you do if your partner gives you a ring you dislike?
Receiving a ring that you don‚Äôt like is a major problem.¬† After your partner spent a huge amount of money to surprise you, how do you say you don‚Äôt like it? ¬†Cupid has some advice:
1.¬†Fess up: Your first option is to be honest.¬† Speak up and tell your partner you aren’t a fan of the ring.¬† If they really care about you, they will understand.¬† Offer to go pick out a different ring together.
2.¬†Drop hints: Things like not wearing your ring or mentioning other rings that you like will definitely make your partner think.¬† However, your sweetheart may be thinking that you don‚Äôt want to marry them, and not necessarily that you dislike their choice of diamonds.
3.¬†Deal with it: Choosing to never say anything to your partner will leave their feelings unhurt.¬† But, can you live with an engagement ring that you dislike?¬† This is not just a birthday gift you can hide in a drawer; you are going to be wearing your ring every day and proudly showing it off to your friends and family.
