It’s good to know I’m not the only one who does this or hates the word SOON. Glad to hear everything worked out! 🙂

@ScenicRoute:  Hahaha I had to laugh at the listen buddy! part! I’ve soooo been there! It sucks and it’s worse when it’s THAT week LOL.

  My SO wasnt aloud to say the word soon to me either, It just made me boil inside. Soon to men is nothing like soon to women lol. Silly boys! Atleast he understoond where the crazy came from lol

I hate the word soon.  My SO says it awful and I had a melt down like you.  And I pretty much said the same thing, that our definitions of soon were so very different.

Aw! I feel your pain! My SO has a tendency to say, “Don’t worry, Babe, it’ll all work out.” My face wants to crumple into a million tears when he says that, especially if it’s “that time…”.

@ScenicRoute:  Ah yes, soon. My SO learned his lesson with the word “soon” nice and early in the waiting process in a similar situation!

Sometimes I think it’s okay to let some emotions sneak through, it’s an important release valve to have. Don’t stress about it too much!

ETA: Actually just this weekend I caved and was talking engagement with my SO, I was trying to weedle a narrower timeline out of him. He grins and says “oh it may be sooner than you think”. I get very serious and tell him “Don’t make promises your butt can’t cash, because I *will* come looking for that check!”, after which he instantly backpedalled.  😉

Grr I completely agree! My SO always says “calm down it’ll all work out” and I want to flip and say in what universe? Maybe it comes with the territory of being a) female, b) not engaged & c) mid twenties! Also there could be a d) where you wake up and think holy crap I’ve got to start thinking about having kids or I won’t be able to have any soon! I can’t believe I said “soon”. sorry bees!

@ScenicRoute:  So true!  I said that too him too.  He said soon would be sometime before the end of the year still not soon enough haha.

I’m so tired of the word soon. I DEFINITELY don’t blame you on blowing up on him. It’s infuriating sometimes!

I’m pretty sure that I have had this exact same conversation in my head a 100 times this week. I’m also PMSy and if my SO busted out the “soon” or talking about our future this week without proposing shortly after, I’m pretty sure I’d melt his face off too. I swear the worst words men can possibly say are “soon”, “calm down”, “you’re crazy”. All three of those phrases and you better expect a war.

@ScenicRoute:  THIS! I am sooo over the moon with anxiety and anger right now because I’m 197% sure that SO is not doing anything to move forward towards getting me an engagement ring, even after our big rehash 2 months ago… Grr.
