A heartbroken Virginia man, who was dumped by his girlfriend just weeks before he planned to propose to her, is hoping he'll feel better by giving away the engagement ring to a couple that is truly in love.
23-year-old Steven Crocker was devastated when his girlfriend of two years broke up with him. He had planned a trip for the two of them to Universal Studios and was going to propose there, but it never happened.
Several days later, he decided it was time to do something with the diamond ring he had just finished paying off. He first tried to sell it, but wasn't getting any attractive offers -- so he came up with an even better idea. He would give it away to a couple in love.
He said, "I realized it wasn’t about the money for me, and that no amount of money coming back would make me feel better. I thought that if I could pass it along to somebody who would appreciate it, that that might help me move on and feel better."
So he posted a picture of the ring on Facebook and offered to give it to a couple that is truly in love and wants to get married but can't afford a ring. He has since received thousands of emails from people with their personal love stories. Steven says he plans to read every single email before deciding who to give the ring to.
