It’s one of the biggest moments of your life. Your boyfriend takes you out on an amazingly beautiful dinner. He cryptically talks about the future with you throughout the evening, but you are just a bit too preoccupied with how gorgeous his eyes look in the candlelight.

As dessert arrives, your boyfriend takes your hand, looks you in the eyes and gets down on one knee. You start to fluster, your heart feels like it’s going to beat out of your chest… he’s about to propose!

Sure enough, your boyfriend pulls out a little black box and pops the big question. As he opens the box, you are about to say yes, but then he opens it up and reveals a dog collar?

Around the corner, a cute golden retriever puppy runs out of the waiter’s arms and flies into your lap.

Would you be happy if you were given a gift instead of an engagement ring?

Ty from ‘Ty Loves NY’ is starting to think a bit about the future with his girlfriend. She’s the type of girl who is unique. And Ty is the type of guy who doesn’t like to live in the norm. So he’s debating on a ring or a gift. Is spending thousands of dollars on a ring, or a gift like a dog or a car more of an investment?

Take a listen to what some callers had to say this morning on ‘Ty Loves NY.’


Our callers stood divided.

In today’s tough times, starting a family can be expensive. In that case, this listener decided to pass on a gift and also a ring for one major investment.

Take a listen:


She is the voice of reason. Forget the money for a ring, put it into a house for your future family.

But what would you prefer? Would you deny an engagement if you didn’t receive a ring? If you were to get a gift, what would you want? Share your thoughts in the comments below!
