Call it an ancient tradition, or call it replicating what others continue to do for each other in terms of expressing long-term commitments or mutual love and respect for each other, do yourself the favor of following what your heart is telling you to do. If you are a gentleman, you have to admit that your girlfriend or lover has a far better way with words than you, no matter how intellectually and worldly wise you may seem to be.
To compensate for your genetic shortcoming, still a positive trait of your underlying humanity, present your girlfriend, lover or partner with initial rings as a traditional, and yet powerfully symbolic gesture of just how much you care and love your partner. Invariably, she won’t be able to stop babbling to you, so overjoyed and overcome she will be. She won’t be able to help showing off to her family and friends that lovely set of gold and diamonds you’ve just purchased online for her.
It will never be understood, mothers generally tend to get along better with their sons than with their daughters. So, if you happen to be a long-suffering daughter, why not cherish your mother anew with a ring or gold necklace. Your mother will never forget the thought that went in to selecting the valued item. She also need not know just how easy it was for you to purchase your item of value online. Perhaps she is still quite old-fashioned and knows little about such convenient purchasing options.
True romantics, however, still love to wander around department stores to find something precious and of value for their loved one. But these days they can only sigh.
