My girlfriend Shaina is one of the first people I have ever met from Ireland. I have met quite a few Irish-Americans, but it is is most definitely not the same. The level of pride she has for her homeland beat all that I have ever seen. I am a stone cold America lover, and she has me beat by a mile. We have been together for a little over four years and I am ready to take things to the next level.
I am not one of those guys that buys diamond rings every day, so I am a little intimidated. My sister was over here earlier, and I showed her a few of the rings I had in mind. She looked a little unsure about my selection, but I think a lot of that was because she wouldn’t want any of them personally. She was trying to steer me toward a more traditional engagement ring, but I know in my heart that my girlfriend would like my idea more.
