Woman wants ring to become virginity protector

Yes, they could have phrased this differently, but I think your concern about this is really splitting hairs.

Their wedding is not about you or your possible or perceived embarrassment regarding bringing a gift. The couple is urging you not to worry about it, and so you shouldn't.

Dear Amy: "Tired of Listening" was bothered by a friend's constant complaining.

I had a sister that used to do this several times a week. The calls always ended in tears. I finally sat her down and explained she needed professional help that I was not qualified or comfortable providing.

The only mistake I made was doing it in a restaurant. She did seek help and our relationship improved.
