Growing up, I always thought that
if a boy loves you, he buys you things.
I thought if he really loves you, he buys you a ring.
And one day, some poor unfortunate soul will love you so much
that he will buy you a big, beautiful diamond.
Whose idea was this originally?
Some genius marketing team in the 1930s came up with that slogan,
“A diamond is forever”
and it worked brilliantly.
In the 10+ years I’ve been dating,
I’ve had two rings bought for me.
They were beautiful and I loved them.
But both of them broke.
How much more of a sign do you need, Kels?
P.S. “Ring Off” is a Beyoncé song that inspired this rant.
