They are just excited for you… I can’t think of how you can stop this tho. It must be annoying!

I went on a short trip back in June and was mortified when I got back to work and a coworker incredulously asked “So… You’re not engaged yet?” She and I are friendly, so she knows that SO and I have been talking about it, but really, that’s going to be the first thing you say? I was shocked; I hadn’t expected it to happen, and when I got back I wasn’t thinking about that, I was just happy and relaxed from the trip. Her question kind of stung… Anyway, I know more than a few of us have been there, try not to think about what other people are saying. They’re excited for you, and for whatever reason don’t understand how rude it is to make comments like that and how uncomfortable it can make you feel. It’s as if they never consider what the implication will be if you come back still not engaged. Wish there was some way to politely tell people to back off, but it really is hard when they have good intentions!
