NFT instead of an engagement ring
One of the Reddit participants under the pseudonym HandHoldingClub shared his sad story of an unsuccessful engagement. The fact is that HandHoldingClub is fond of digital assets, and his girlfriend, with whom they have been together for four years, is very scrupulous about money and always insists on saving money. Recently, the couple had a serious quarrel due to the fact that HandHoldingClub invested most of the total savings in Dogecoin and suffered losses. He tried to get everything back through trading, but even then he failed and lost his investments again.
Later, a Reddit user came across the NFT. According to him, this NFT may have a special meaning for both of them. He hoped that his girlfriend would like such a gift.
«I believe that this token can grow to $1 million. Therefore, I decided to spend almost all my savings on buying it. And when he grows up, we can buy a house and go on vacation. I gave this NFT to my girlfriend as an engagement ring.»

After that, the would-be investor went to the forum to look for support, wrote a post about it, but faced criticism from commentators. They told him that he was really an egoist, with whom it was impossible to build a family.
