I went to the ER this morning around 4 because of chest pains. While I was being seen, my SO filled out all my paperwork. When he gave it to the nurse she asked him, ‘are you the husband?” Not in a rude way, just wanted to know who filled my paperwork out. And I said “no, just my boyfriend.” And it sucked having to say that instead of saying Fiance or FH. We got asked the same question by the ECG tech, the DR and the X-ray tech! And each time it still hurt to say “BF.” Normally, I’m very patient, and SO has hinted at a Christmas Eve proposal, but today I just realized that waiting is bothering me more than I thought 🙁
Oh, btw I’m fine. Just have pleurisy!

First. I am sorry that you had to go to the ER. It sucks having to go there. I am just glad that you are okay.
The waiting is going to be so much harder now because you know that it is coming. And I would love to tell you “just try to forget about it”, but trust me, I have been there and I know exactly how you are feeling right now.
All I can say is, Try to be as patient as you can. You are just going to have to try and write today off as being a bad day and hope it doesn’t happen again. It is going to feel like eternity until Christmas Eve. But when he finally does pop the question you will finally be a future MRS. Hang in there!

@MissKPreK: I know it’s so easy to say “just be patient!!” because like the PP said, we’ve all been there.
Just hang in there.. You’re so close 🙂 I always wanted a Christmas proposal.
PS: Glad you’re okay 🙂 It sucks to go to the ER.

@MissKPreK: It sucks going to the ER (trust me, I know; I work there!), and I know it seems a sore spot to ask if the guy with you is your husband, but it is protocol in many places and it has to be asked. I hate having to ask that question with patients, but it’s part of our job!
Hopefully your proposal will come ASAP so you can introduce him to people as your fiance and not BF!

On the bright side, it’s likely that this scare made him think about how much you mean to him and how devastated he would be if something bad really had been wrong with you. So on the off chance it wasn’t going to happen soon…it probably will now.
In any event, glad you are ok!

I know the feeling. I have to say Boyfriend or Best Friend to my parents, even though they know we are engaged. It’s something they dont accept about us (the engaged part).
