need
Reading the Dear Wendy column about engagement rings made me think I should come up with a good ring. So I kinda picture something in my head and then go image googling for ideas.

And I find something pretty darn close and perfect to what I was picturing. The store website has the tagline "because jewelry is not a luxury but a necessity".

I look at the ring description so I can crib it.

TWENTY-TWO THOUSAND DOLLARS.

Yes. A ring that costs more than my car is a necessity, not a luxury.

D is so lucky I'm not a jewelry person.

One of the things I got to ask a girl before I think about getting serious: What do you think about Weddings dresses and rings?

Because I'm renting my tuxedo.

Yeah, the more obsessed someone is with "OMG the dress and ring must be perfect or my life is ruined forever why don't you want me to be happy", the more you should run the other way. It's fine to want something nice, but that should never be more important than what it means.

Ah, so how shall Guy try to impress (because he's the type of guy who'd like to impress) a girl like Natalia, who presumably is little affected by 22,000 dollar rings?

Yeah, I'm working on that.
