Yeah an engagement ring. He never got the chance to give it to her because she broke up with him before he could.
I guess you’re right that it needs to be a conversation. It’s hard to do because he hates talking about his ex a lot so I hate to bring it up and at the same time things are good right now... but they also don’t feel like they are progressing. Like I care SO much about him and want to tell him that I love him, but I can’t do it because I truly don’t feel like he loves me back. I can’t tell if it’s because he needs more time to grow into that or because he’s not over his ex, but I think it’s the latter.
Like you know how when you’re in love, and just seeing the person makes your face light up? And you get all tender and there is like a look in your eye? He never looks at me that way. He never really looks at me like I’m his.
