We are back everyone!
I don’t know about you, but I feel like this last week has gone by so fast! Our weeks here are Thursday to Thursday, or corner to corner right?
I thought the corner this week should be catered to engagements for multiple reasons. One, Des and I are coming up on wedding season. Between the both of us, we have about six weddings to attend this year…not including our own! Did you just ask yourself, “but when are you two getting married?” Well if not I just asked for you. The answer is…we haven’t set a date yet! But we can assure you that you will know when we do.
Reason number two – I thought it would be nice to give you my perspective on engagements. You see, the guy is typically the one asking the girl and offering up some sort of guarantee in that of a ring (industry standard). BUT, the girl never gives something to the guy. I am not going to get historical on you as to why this traditionally happens. You can go and look it up on Wikipedia if you are interested. I am more going to tell you Des and my secret.
During our happy couple retreats – that’s what we called all of our secret getaways while the show was airing – we were spending beautiful time together. Well, the first HC we had together Des surprised me with something that I keep with me to this day. Not a RING, but something that symbolizes a ring. In fact, you will see me with it and wearing it everywhere I go, besides the gym. Any guesses? If you follow me on Twitter or IG you can probably recognize what I am talking about.
Okay okay I’ll tell you! She gave me a watch! I will have to be completely honest. Before Des I did not really wear a watch that much. In fact, hardly at all. I did, however, like the idea. When she gave me the watch it symbolized a ring, or the union a ring symbolizes. Now I wear it everywhere! Not the gym.
You are probably thinking to yourself, “Oh. We were sure it was going to be something else.” Maybe you aren’t. But my point here is this. Des and I share something very special. She wears a ring that symbolizes her commitment and eternal love for me. I wear a watch that symbolizes my commitment and eternal love for her. This is amazing. If I were a lady, which I am not, I would look for something special for my man so that he can share in this special, once in a lifetime experience together with me. Watches, bracelets, necklaces, toe rings…whatever! But his commitment to you in getting you a ring is much as your commitment to him in wearing it. Why not turn the table and do the same for him?
