Don’t buy an engagement ring without a ‘yes’

DEAR ABBY: I’m a 50ish, never-married bachelor with a question about engagement rings. Do you recommend that the man go out and purchase an engagement ring and then present it to the woman when he proposes, or do you think he should propose without a ring and then let her choose the ring she wants? — Old Bachelor in Ohio
