…because he keeps sabotaging mine!
As you may have noticed, all of my posts lately circle around me doing everything in my power to NOT discuss getting engaged or married: no asking about rings/dates, no talking over plans, and no getting caught watching wedding porn (SYTTD, 4 Weddings, etc.). It’s been going pretty well, with a couple of slip ups here and there.
Now a curious pattern has emerged: Boyfriend or Best Friend is now bringing it up. Alot. In a manner I can only describe as “fishing”. For example, yesterday we were talking and he addressed me by my full name but with *his* last name on the end. When i didnt respond, he said “Hello? Didnt you hear me saying your name?” I responded with “I heard you say *something*, but thats not my name.” He replied “oh yes it is. thats your name.”
Why is he suddently chatty cathy about marriage? Like i said, it all seems like fishing for a response, with everything ending in some upward inflection. Is me not takling about it anymore freaking him out? He’s acting as bad as a Waiting Bee!

@badabing88: Haha, I bet if you just stop talking about it a little bit more, he won’t be able to resist popping the question.

Maybe he is so used to hearing about it from you he wants to bring it up now…which is the goal of the SIU pact. Good for you.

I really think shutting up works wonders. SO used to NEVER bring up marriage and never seemed like he wanted to discuss it much. So I stopped mentioning it completely (which wasn’t very often to begin with) and ever since, he has started bringing up the topic on a regular basis.
Keep it up and stay strong!
