i have known my boyfriend for 7 or 8 years now, he worked with my dad when i was 14 and he was 21. we've only been dating for 4 months, but we are going to get married. and instead of a ring, i gave him a key. i bought a necklace shaped like a heart with part missing and the key fits it perfectly. until i get a necklace for his, he carries it around happily in his wallet. which is fine by me =) and as corny as it sounds it fits us perfectly.
i think any man willing to carry around or wear a token of love from the girl he is with is a man worth marrying. and i would be offended if he refused to wear it or if it just ended up tossed somewhere in his room like everything else in the world, maybe even the titanic is in that room!
it's good to know i'm not the only crazy one though =)
