To think he should buy a new fucking engagement ring!?

(312 Posts)

I got a text from my ex fiance this morning saying:

"Hiya, this might sound a bit weird, but can I have the engagement ring back?? Think I may have found a new recipient!"

My face was like this shock.

I've not seen him for a while- since I picked the last of my stuff up- and have been distancing myself, but he didn't mention anything when I saw him. I asked him when we split if he wanted the ring back, and he said no.

Obviously I don't wear the ring, but it still means something. And what woman in their right mind would want a ring chosen by a man's ex and worn by her for nearly 3 years? I think that's pretty insulting for both of us. AIBU??

I refuse to watch TWS, please someone report back!

NO WAY!! I'm bloody famous! You may all queue for my autograph grin

<not watching that knobber though. Let me know what happens!>

Christ. I hope XP doesn't see that!!

Matthew Wright is a tit for doing this.

OP I don't think that woman even exists, I think he said to see if he could draw you in/make you jealous, when you responded he acted like it was no big thing just in case he still had a chance with you IMO, he sounds creepy as hell!

Glad you sold it!

Why is MW wrong for discussing this? confused

AmberLeaf Wed 28-Nov-12 11:09:44

Because if he bothered to read the thread and the background, he would see that the OPs EX is unhinged, directly linking his discussion to the OPs post is out of order and unsafe for her.

I'm relatively new to all this.

I follow MW on Twitter and have noticed lately that a few of the thread topics come up on their show.

Lazy journalism?

WorraLiberty Wed 28-Nov-12 11:13:00

Oh purrlease!

If the OP felt it was unsafe for her, I'm quite sure she wouldn't have put the thread on a public internet forum that you don't even have to be a member of to read.

BTW if anyone is selling old jewellery, I had a tip once that Hatton Garden Metals give the best prices. These people are who the trade use.

WorraLiberty Wed 28-Nov-12 11:15:23

Bum some people call it 'lazy' journalism and others call it research.

If you're choosing topics for discussion on a show, it makes perfect sense to turn to internet forums to see what sort of subjects people are interested in discussing.

I imagine tons of shows/journalists look on major websites...TWS is just honest about it.

Worra there is a big difference between posting on Mumsnet and having it broadcast and attention drawn to it on a national TV show.

Would you agree to MW linking some of the sensitive threads on relationships or bereavment? This is a sensitive thread IMO.

MW is an arse.

BumBiscuits Wed 28-Nov-12 11:22:15

Jezza Kyle is a better class of arse than Matthew Wright!

WorraLiberty Wed 28-Nov-12 11:25:43

Leaving a thread like this openly on the internet for the world and his wife to view at their leisure, is going to get way more attention than five minutes on a chat show that's broadcast on channel 5 when most people are at work.

You can't compare a thread like this to bereavement.

The OP says in her first post that the ring 'means something' and in the second post 'it's in a box waiting to go on Ebay'.

If she felt 'unsafe' I'm quite sure she would have had it all deleted by now.

AmberLeaf Wed 28-Nov-12 11:37:29

I didn't compare this thread to bereavement at all!

I said would you agree with MW linking a thread from bereavement or relationships.

WorraLiberty Wed 28-Nov-12 12:23:23

By asking that question you are comparing it.

And my answer is, it would depend on the thread entirely.

And read the OP's post @ 10:07:28

Does that look as though she's scared to you?

confuddledDOTcom Wed 28-Nov-12 12:27:06

It's one thing looking for what topics are trending across a range of forums/ Facebook/ Twitter but actually discussing one person's problems is totally different! Added to that that MW is a misogynist and hates mothers, he's deliberately calling attention to MN to have a dig. You post here for the people who are posting here to discuss, not for that misogynistic twat to make fun of you.

So who watched?

AmberLeaf Wed 28-Nov-12 12:33:50

Read her comment at 10:08am.

confuddledDOTcom Wed 28-Nov-12 12:53:17

Yeah, sounds like she's just revelling in the glory, don't it? sad

WorraLiberty Wed 28-Nov-12 12:54:54

I read it Amber

I'm quite sure she hopes he doesn't see it because then he'll realise she's been over invested in his relationship with someone else, criticised him publicly and suddenly decided to sell the ring now purely because he wanted it back.

If I were her I would think 'Christ I hope XP doesn't see it!' too.

But nowhere...not on this thread or the one she linked to, has she even indicated that she might be 'unsafe' if he saw it.

AmberLeaf Wed 28-Nov-12 12:59:53

That's your take on her thread Worra.

I think it was a shitty thing to do [linking this thread to the wright stuffs fb page]

Hello! I'm back.

Blimey- NO confuddled, of course I'm not reveling in the glory, I was JOKING! A slot on MW is hardly glorious is it? I was being ironic if anything. I think he's a tit!

Amber, Worra is correct, if I was scared or worried I would have had the tread deleted. I'm not- although obviously I'd rather he didn't know I'd discussed it on here. What does concern me somewhat is that on here I am on hand to defend myself and my decisions. I doubt the MW read out any of my posts clarifying the situation!
