People are angry at this woman who found her engagement ring and bashed it on Facebook
Picking out an engagement ring is a tricky business.
But youâd hope that if the relationship is right, even a less-than-glorious ring will be celebrated. Itâs about love not diamonds, right?
That was not the case for one couple.
Thereâs uproar on Reddit in response to a woman who decided to âroastâ her engagement ring online, posting a photo in a Facebook group with the caption âEwwwwwâ.
âSelf shame Friday here I come,â wrote the mystery woman, along with a photo of a sparkly ring. âFound this in the BFâs nightstand. Not a fan.
âPlease roast and then tell me how to tactfully say no you need to go get something different.â
At least she wanted to be tactful.
That Facebook post was shared on Reddit, where it quickly racked up criticism.
âThis is the saddest thing Iâve seen on this sub,â wrote one Redditor. âItâs one thing when itâs a total stranger, but when someone thatâs supposed to love you unconditionally acts like a grifter itâs just plain sad.âAdvertisement Advertisement
âI hope he sees this, and then RUNS,â wrote another.
One wise commenter wrote: âIf the ring is the problem, the ring isnât the problem. If she really loves him, sheâll be over the moon with a ring made of tin foil. The fact that sheâs upset about the ring and not excited that her partner is about to propose is a massive red flag.â
Itâs worth noting that according to the womanâs post, she hasnât actually been proposed to yet and instead found the ring in her boyfriendâs drawer, so itâs possible that this all might be a huge mixup and thereâs not really a plan to pop the question with that ring.
We do hope that the couple have a chat before any engagement happens, mind you. It sounds like they might have different priorities if the womanâs first reaction to finding an engagement ring is to jump into a Facebook group specifically created to criticise rings.
