So, little background. I work with my ex. Not. Fun. At. All. One of my co-workers asked me when I was going to get married, he overheard the question and went flying down to his desk to email me asking if I was engaged.
Me – no, he hasn’t asked yet
R – good, because after only 6 months of dating its too soon
Me – really? we were engaged after 6 months, what’s so wrong with it now?
R – It’s just too soon, and I don’t want to see you go through that again.
Me – Yeah, well it’s a totally different situation, he actually treats me well and won’t cheat on me.
He didn’t respond back. Fast forward a few hours and I’m on the phone with J telling him the story. J’s response? “Well I guess he’s not going to like me soon”. Woah, wha? “I don’t want to ruin it for you, but as long as you say yes, we’ll be engaged by the end of the year”.
I didn’t even have to ask for a timeline! Woo hoo! So incredibly giddy right now!

@Golden139: yes, very much so. He thinks he’s God’s gift to woman. Um, no, you’re 43 and never married. Should have known from the beginning. Oh well, lesson learned.

I used to work with my ex too……it was MISERABLE. He always had to bring up my boyfriend in little snide comments. THEN, felt the need to come find me to tell me that his girlfriend (the girl who he cheated on me with) was pregnant and he proposed to her. Really guy? You hunted me down around the office to tell me that? He was pretty pathetic.

@armychica06: Thanks! I think so too! It helps being friends for 10 years first. If someone would have told me when I first met him that he was my one and only, I would have looked at them like they were crazy. Turns out I was the crazy one for not seeing it oh so long ago!

Very awesome! It sucks that you have to deal with your ex at work, but it’s a nice bonus that it’s led to you finding out about your timeline!
