So I am in the Valentine’s Day Challange AND doing my best with Mr Bee’s Plan. I have been kicking butt at both, but this week for some reason was soo hard! Then while at work yesterday I ran into a 2nd cousin that I rarely see and she asked if I was engaged YET. I said no but my Boyfriend or Best Friend and I have been together for 3.5 years and she says “yeah..that’s how long Lucy (her daughter) dated before she got enaged.” I totally understand she didn’t mean to hurt me, but I was having a bad week anyway and that comment just didn’t help. I really just needed to get that off my chest.

It’s okay, don’t worry! I honestly just tuned those comments out. I got them ALL THE TIME and we only dated 1.5 years before getting engaged!! I was really weirded out by peoples expectations. And I was always wondering why they asked ME?? No one ever asked him!! So unfair!
Just try to take those comments as a compliment. That means they would approve of you two getting married which is a GOOD thing.

I’m weary in waiting too, but oddly enough, it’s my boyfriend who’s always getting that question! I agree with ModernDaisy– I feel that it’s a huge compliment that people think of us as a couple on their way to marriage. I know it can be frustrating because there’s very little that we as women can control when it comes to engagement– it’s like asking someone “hey, when’s it gonna rain?” Heck if we know.
