Seriously? who are these people? They are living in a fantasy land! 

And M! Does she have no self respect? I feel bad for her, but she’s in on it too by now?

maybe if youre not available for an event, your FI should take a friend as a blind date for M? And not give it up either, take a friend over and over and over!

Ooh, Maybe not a close friend though, can you imagine if that actually ‘worked out ‘ for M and you and your FI were frienda with the new guy?!?

@KatB442:  

This is just so bizarre. I’d probably feel the same as you; the first couple of times mostly amused but also slightly offended. Though after a while it would start to do my head in. It’s completely fine if they don’t like you but not respecting your relationship when you’re nothing but pleasant to them is beyond rude! 

Why does M keep going? Is she a masochist or just that thirsty? I’d feel sorry for her the first time but after knowing he’s engaged I can’t fathom a reason for her constantly agreeing. I’m not sure I agree with you that she’s “nice”.

Happy thanksgiving 🙂 though I don’t celebrate it.

@Contented_J:  I say they should bring blind dates for C or E since they don’t seem to mind that OP and her FI are in a relationship. Maybe if the tables are turned they’ll stop lol

What the fuck? 

What is wrong with them?! Who sets an engaged man up on a blind date?

That is incredibly weird. Especially because they keep on trying to do it! I probably would have told them to fuck off by now.

That’s the strangest thing I’ve ever heard.  And I agree with both @Contented_J  and @ForeverBirds – either take a blind date for M to the next event, or take blind dates for C & E.  Usually I don’t approve of playing games, but this is just ridiculous (although let the blind dates in on the story first!).

Have you or your FI ever asked them WHY do they keep doing this? Do they have reasons? Or are they just that clueless?

Yep, I’m pretty sure C and E are absolutely crazy. I’d give them a piece of my mind, but I’m the confrontational type.

Wow, just wow. I would be hurt and furious!! I think I would have a really hard time seeing my cousin if they did this. Maybe if you had just gone on one day or something, but WTF he is engaged!! I would feel bad for M at first, but after that she is just coming off as crazy or pathetic. I agree with PP how would C and E feel if you brought blind dates for them? I think it would be great if FI brought a date for M and C. I kind of get the idea of wanting a best friend to be family, but sorry that’s just a fantasy at this point. Seriously not going to happen and they are being so incredibly rude and disrespectful. I hope FI made a big scene and embarassed them the second time this happened. I would feel uncomfortable having those people at my wedding.

Wtf dude?  Seriously what the actual f*ck.

Do they really think this is going to split you up? And if they’re really trying to show your FI that there are “better” options out there why do they keep bringing the same girl he doesn’t like? Or why haven’t they realized that this approach isn’t working?

Obviously you don’t know the answers to this, I’m just trying to understand what the heck they are thinking. This is so beyond weird.

Your story made me giggle. That is TOO weird!! I feel so bad for you, but I’m laughing anyway. What are C&E thinking?!

Looks like it might be time for a frank talk with C&E. Ask what their purpose is in bringing M and whether they have something they’d like to say to you directly. (Include FI on the talk). At least if you bring it into the open something can change.
