Shopping Stalker

Before buying an engagement ring I did a lot of research online. It's an odd proposition, buying a diamond. You know nothing about them, and then you have to become an expert overnight so you can shop without getting ripped off, and then as soon as you're done buying it you can promptly forget everything you learned. It's kind of like every subject in high school that way. My problem was that in doing all my research online, I would get served ads for diamond selling websites while surfing the web with my girlfriend looking over my shoulder. These 'stalker ads' that follow me around the net don't bother me, but they weren't doing me any favors in this case. Though I suspect that if I'd been getting served ads for new mountain bikes instead of diamonds, that wouldn't have been good either. At least she could see that I was making progress.
