      Promissory estoppel, however, is a common law equitable rule enforced by the state to prevent the lack of a written contract from defeating a plaintiff's claim. See Nelson v. Elway, 908 P.2d 102 (Colo.1995).

      Although promises made by one party may be enforced against that party in the absence of a contract, such obligations are not entered into voluntarily nor are they self-imposed 623*623 if they are enforced against that party by a trial court to further public policy and provide equitable relief. See Kiely v. St. Germain, 670 P.2d 764 (Colo.1983) (promissory estoppel is extension of basic contract principle that one who makes a promise is required to keep it). Osband v. United Airlines, Inc., 981 P. 2d 616 - Colo: Court of Appeals, 3rd Div. 1998
