I am a person who knows what I am doing. Whatever may other people tell for as long as I know I don't violate any rules or regulations I'll do things I am comfortable with and will make me happy. Sometimes it just need a little courage to be out of others pedestal. We should let them know who we are and that we can stand on our own feet. Make them realize that without them you are someone but without you they are nothing. That is the essence of life if you can't live with it you'll surely die. Even in the field of love it applies. If he doesn't like you don't mind it. If he doesn't want to give you engagement rings let it be. You are a woman and you can live without a man.
