I was ever told the same too.
Once upon the time, I offered a girl an engagement ring. She accepted the ring, lost it in a few days and I lost her finally, though she promised that she will keep the ring in her mind. She said "I would like to be with you, …I care about you, I miss you…but I do think it is too early to talk about marriage right now".
What a heart breaker.
Zhuyi lost her ring (Read more), the wedding ring. I see her deep deep sadness.
