So as I am driving into the j-o-b this morning, I hear the The Bert Show and they are talking about women and how they feel about the rings the men buy them for engagements and weddings and are they picky and choosy and does it have to be a diamond or this and that. I for a split second wanted to call in, but I know that I would get hung up on. I was so mad. Listening to the women on the show talk about how they would rather have their man wait and save up money so they could get the ring they wanted instead of being happy with what they were able to get then and there.
Which brings me to this. Yes I am a male. Its true that engagements and weddings and stuff like that don't mean as much to a man as they do to a woman. BUT...Isn't it all about LOVE ladies? The Love you have for your man. The man you SAY captured your heart BEFORE there was even thought of the ring? How come you ladies cant be happy just being happy? Why do you all have to screw it up and put the materialistic value on everything? "That's not the ring I wanted" "That's not big enough" whatever. Does it really matter what your needy, judgemental girlfriends think of your ring? They are probably the same hateful little ladies that didn't want you to be with that guy in the first place.
Ladies, don't you complain when your man, has all of his "Boy Toys"? His cars, his video games, his hunting items? I'm sure. I would be willing to bet that the women that are NEEDY and cry and moan and groan about having the perfect ring are the same women that cry and moan and groan about the "Boy Toys".
What happened to the days when it didn't matter about the material items. Back when our grandparents told us stories about proposing with a plastic ring, or one made out of grass, or not one at all cause they couldn't afford it? I know Tina Turner said "Whats Love Got To Do With It" but shit, women cant figure out what the hell they want.
-A guy that will love me
-A guy that will treat me good
-A guy that will never stray
-Oh but he better put that expensive, nice big ring on my finger or forget it.
Ladies if you are that type of person, I feel comfortable in calling you High Maintenance and Needy and for that you will find out one day that all that b.s. you needed and wanted is just that...B.S.
There is one thing that the radio conversation and the opinions of the ladies from this morning made me realize...I met and married a REAL WOMAN. And by that I mean, she never once cared about what kind of ring, size, diamond or any of that. In fact when WE went to pick out rings she made it a point to not go above and beyond and drop large coin on the rings. And after several years and kids later, when she mentioned that she wanted a NEW band, she didn't try to find one that was crazy expensive..NO, she looked around and found one that she liked that was a great deal. So I am glad that I married a woman that is not MATERIALISTIC OR NEEDY.
T and I have love. A love that isn't measured by a piece of jewelry.
Again this is just my opinion and I know some of you ladies may agree and some of you will not. Tell me whats up.
Kiss the Baby
