Man proposes to GF with a non-traditional ring because she's a nurse and GF hates it.


Proposing is an ordeal and a half. Getting the right ring, finding the right moment, waiting for an answer, so many things can go wrong. If you're considering proposing, you better know your partner well.

On a popular Reddit thread in the Am I the A**hole Subreddit, one man proposes to his girlfriend, and it backfires on him.

He writes:

I(29m) wanted to propose to my gf(28f). She's a nurse, so she can't wear rings at work. I wanted to give her something she could always keep with her. I am a graphic designer, so I designed a ring and chain I thought she would like.

The ring is in a style she's worn before and likes, with a diamond and opals, which are her favorite. The chain is relatively small, sturdy, and made of a stainless steel core with alternating gold and silver links over the top, so it's stronger.

The clasp for the chain is invisible, and the ring can be clipped on and off of the ring without having to take the chain off. I made it so that she could turn it and hide the clip so she could wear the chain separately from the ring.

I thought it was cool, and I proposed on Sunday at the park after Mother's Day. There was no one else around to see it. She was initially excited when she saw it and immediately said yes. However, when she pulled it out and saw the chain attached, she accused me of trying to prank her and wouldn't hear a word in my defense.

She was yelling at me and crying, and I felt horrible. I tried to explain, but she shut me down and returned to her mother's place. Now she won't talk to me, and I don't know what to do. AITA?

The internet loves proposals.

You were very thoughtful. She didn't even want to listen to you. And you're not even married yet......NTA (Not the A**hole).

NTA. You were thinking of her in all places, work too, and went out of your way to make so she can wear it at work without getting scolded or fired.

The best thing to do would be trying to reach her and explain calmly everything or try to contact the mother privately and try to use her help to mediate, nothing comes to mind on why she behaved like that.

OP, that was more thoughtful than most proposals out there! You should be a marriage proposal consultant.
