Have I lost all sense of time or wasn't it only a couple of months ago you were dating several women at once?
That was around a year ago. We have been together for just over a year now. Living together and discussing our future (including selling our homes and buying one together) Her condition is a ring that doesn't have to be extravagant, but she would like one. I love her, so im going to get her one. Point of the thread was twofold, should I surprise her or make sure she is in on the process, and how to go about making/buying a ring for her as this is new territory for me.
I appreciate the thoughts folks keep em coming!
Thanks for the congratz.
Oh man It would save me a lot of trouble if she would propose to me but she is far too traditional for that.
I am not looking to sink much money into the ring. Id say in the neighborhood of 2-6K (which is affordable for me.)
Id like to surprise her with the ring as opposed to picking one out with her. Though, I do see some of the wisdom in that and know its become much more common.
One thing I heard of was getting a simple wedding band first, proposing with that, then getting the engagement ring second with her input. Thoughts?
I need to ask her old man first, which I plan to do around thanksgiving. Right now I'm in the planning stage of the ring and appreciate all the comments.
So the time has come for Pan to ask for his lady's hand in marriage. I have no idea what im doing when it comes to getting a ring though. Was wondering if the wise folks here could give me some pointers?
Specifically id like to know about these topics;
My mother gave me a stone that belonged to my great grandmother some time ago. Is it better to buy a ring made anyways, or go custom and use my stone? Or buy a set up and have my stone dropped in it? (I dont at this time know what the 4Cs of my stone come out to.)
How do you go about finding your SOs ring size without just asking?
Thats it for now but would love to hear from y'all about anything you think is relevant to topic.

Yeap, Bernie just wants his bust folks to consider a Trump presidency before voting. You could tell he doesn't believe he moved HRC one inch with his perma-grump face during the DNC. Like many HRC voters, he's reluctantly given in because the alternative is so awful.
Are you really advocating policing the border with lethal force? At this point I cant tell if you are serious or not anymore.
Finished it tonight. I liked how Harlem's power structure was a prominent part of the story. Yes, shades, black maraiah, cottonmouth, diamondback may not have been as powerful or menacing as kilgrave or kingpin, but the fight for Harlem in cage made it so much more of a character than hells kitchen ever got from DD or JJ. The ending leaves that structure in place for continued story telling. Cage vs. black mariah and shades will shape up for another excellent fight for the soul of Harlem.
Really appreciated the cameos by charles bradley and sharon jones. The music was top notch!
On the promiscuity of Marvel characters, I think it helps to put these netflix series into context. These are not PG-13 rated stories like the films and cartoons. These are intended for an adult audience and deal with more adult themes. That said, I think the characters lead lives that make long term monogomos relationships problematic. If secrets and lies dont tear them apart, death might and does.
Misty knight's character interaction makes sense. She doesnt trust anyone but a very small circle. In fact Id say Scarfe was the only person she really trusted which is why his passing was so tough for her. She keeps people at a distance and a person like that tends to have short relationships or one night stands.
Luke is pretty on the level. He loved Reva as others pointed out and only stopped with her because she died. Hes on the run laying low not a conducive life to long term relationships. He tries to keep it going with misty but she shuts that down. Sure he flirts with night nurse but that develops over time and im sure he isnt going to want to hit it and quit it. Not his style.
To bring it back I think the netflix series are going for mature realistic theme and are not always going to have positive role model behavior depicted. Not that the behavior depicted is poor or bad either since i think its all understandable within the context of the writing. YMMV
....hope they eventually come up with a character that better suits folks desires for monogomous relationship despictions.
So you want to continue the tradition by paying for a wall?

This is a good view of the situation. Honestly, TTRPG is a small niche and requires group play. Groups are inherently difficult at times to manage. There are thousands of books just on communication. Since the hobby is so small, there simply isn't room for a collection of games that suits all particular playstyles. Despite that fact, it never stops folks from trying to make D&D/PF the one to rule them all and claim the right to brand badwrongfun at will.
I strongly believe in filtering my groups for playstyle. My number one rule is to never ever join a long term campaign until I have had a chance to play with everyone first. This usually means one shots or organized play. My time is valuable to me, and I'm not going to waste it by going through great efforts to smash a triangle peg through a square hole.
Now given that I am selective, and believe many players and I are incompatible, does not mean I have to be a jerk about it. I try my best to explain my viewpoints without resorting to name calling. I see value in discussing playstyle differences with those I disagree with. It has helped me understand more of what I want out of my game. Insults have contributed zero to that. Target that behavior, but don't force everyone to compromise if its going to make the game less fun for them. IMO
I read that most folks decide early on in the election cycle and are pretty solid one way or another by the debate. The study also found that folks almost always assume their candidate won the debate. Seems to be ringing true this morning with folks I know in both camps. Pretty much Hilary "kept it together" and Trump proved he's a "tough guy."
If there is really 16% undecided I definitely want to hear more of their opinions.
Id like to see you keep your "sad, but true" attitude if the police started targeting your neighborhood.
I'd never use the term to identify a woman as a "gamer girl" However, I do know a few who like the term and wear it like a badge of honor. In that case, I would use it only because they own it. For them it points out how they are women playing in a traditionally boy's sandbox. I don't mind that aspect as much as the youth factor. For these women being referred to as a girl denotes their youth and actually take offense to being called "Mam" by strangers. There seems to be something inherently rebellious and cool about the term for these friends of mine.
Also, in my experience, the term "gamer" to most people means video gamer, so I try to avoid using the term anyways. I've used it once or twice for myself when meeting folks then they dive into the latest vids, which i'm nearly in complete ignorance of.
The thin blue line keeps cops in uniform for better or worse. Nobody circles the wagons like police unions.
I agree with Shin, the culture is the problem. Many officers see it as police and civilians. Them vs. us. Civilians have no idea what they do and no place to tell them. Its pretty frightening and the reason why a few of my friends are getting out of LE. Pay is never part of the conversation; anecdotal but take it as you will.

Why must Muslims obey laws, but Christians get a pass because religion?

I recall a few years ago a few cases of Muslim objection in the work place. One was about handling pork products as a cashier at grocery stores, and another about providing taxi service to people with alcohol. Basically, Muslims wanted to be exempt from those things due to their religious freedom. The overwhelming response was "this is America so shut up, bag my groceries, and drive me home." Well now that some Christians have an issue with gay marriage, they dont like being told "this is America so shut up, bake my cake, and take my wedding photos."

I think folks should look to social media. You can organize boycotts and make videos to go viral. The entire medium has a lot of potential.
I hate to appeal to celebs, but its one of the most effective ways in my experience to get points across. You cant turn on a sports channel or read a sports story without hearing about Kapernick and his protest. I know it makes a lot of folks angry, but they have now been inadvertently made aware of the point. Reminds me of Kanye calling out Bush during Katrina. "An awards show aint no place for a protest!!" well i'd argue its the best place. If Kapernick decided to instead hold a town hall about racism, nobody but the folks who care to attend would talk about it.
Adventure paths; I love them, but God do they get an assload of shade thrown at them.
Hate part 1: "I don't want no long campaign, I only want an adventure module!!!"
Hate part 2: "This one encounter is badly/poorly/stupidly designed and ruins everything!!"
More to come. Feel free to add your own. :)
Its that paleo fad. It would be utter torture for me. My life revolves around grains. I make malt, then beer, and finally bread with it. Pretty much grain with every meal, except breakfast, which often includes eggs and milk so no luck there either.
Yeap, its odd that green tea is good for some things and black others. Either way you win.
For beginners I recommend finding an actual shop near your home. They should have samples and knowledgeable staff to get you going. Some folks will say try bagged tea, but I find it to generally be garbage. Take that with a grain of salt though im known among friends and family to be a "top shelf" kind of guy.
Everything can be boiled down to just simply a genre. It is the fanatics that care to discover in detail the nuances and subgenres.
My take away is that it is ok not to care about something. Not caring about something while making generalizations and tossing insults at its fans is being a Richard. Don't be a Richard.
I hope Wilson does take off as a passer too!
I tend to draft differently when I have multiple teams because I don't like having a lot of double picks. Sure if one team dominates chances are they both do, but the opposite is also true. Also, draft position changes how I draft quite a bit. I have one final draft which is an auction on Sunday. I have wanted to do an auction draft for quite some time. Ill report back on the results.
