“I am writing to you to seek your advice on a delicate matter.

My boyfriend of 2 years recently proposed to me with a $10 ring. I was so shocked that I said “I do” without thinking. But now, I’m regretting it.

To give you some context, my boyfriend and I have been dating for 2 years. We met in college and have been inseparable ever since. He’s always been a bit frugal, but I never thought it would extend to our engagement.

I understand that it’s not about the ring, but it’s the principle of the matter. I feel like he doesn’t value me enough to get me a proper ring. I don’t need anything extravagant, but I at least expected something that wasn’t from a dollar store.

I know that he might not have a lot of money, but I don’t think that’s an excuse. He has a decent job and I know he’s been saving up for a new car.

To make matters worse, my friends have been lowkey mocking me for the ring. They keep asking me if it’s a joke or if he got it from a vending machine. It’s humiliating.

I don’t know what to do. I love him, but I can’t help but feel like he doesn’t love me enough to put in the effort. I’m hoping that you can provide me with some guidance on how to handle this situation.

Thank you for your time.
