so i had to share this one. bear in mind that i am a decent, sober person who is sane and do not live in a trailer park, am employed, not an AA.
i went to my sisters birthday and had some drinks, now i used to be able to have a couple of drinks however had been sober for over a year.mutual friends did not know this and thought it would be “FUNNY” to not only the already spiked punch but also additionally spike my drink.
fast forward 3 hours and i accidentally asked my boyfriend to marry me.WHOOPS and he said yes. instead of leaving it be everyone rings all the relatives so we are in this now and this is happening.
fast forward 3 months and i find out he had had a ring for me on layby for 5 months and was going thinking of a really romantic way to propose. (DAH)
Am i wrong in saying
1. why the hell did he say yes to the drunken sailor
2.why the hell did he choose such an expensive ring to lay-by
3.why did hell did he cancel the freaking lay-by of the ring
ok its not about the ring, but what the hell, i don’t drink cause i got into the whole yoga thing and now i’m jibbed of an actual proposal.
my family and friends wonder why i don’t see them that much, this is why, causing random drama in my life.

So he cancelled the ring so you won’t be getting a real proposal? I would ask him if he would be willing to still do a traditional proposal for you. Didn’t he lose all the money that he put into the ring on layaway? That seems like a waste to cancel it.

Just a note, I’ve read a couple of your posts and you keep saying “I don’t live in a trailer park,” with a very judgy tone. You don’t know who on this board actually does live in a trailer park and reading this would probably give them really bad opinions about you. People that live in a trailer park can be very normal, sober, employed, upstanding citizens, too 🙂

that is exactly what i said. i think he was just really bummed as he had this whole thing planned and it got scrapped. he would have been upset/cranky so scratched the lay by.
but yeah i was like what the hell? why did you do that dude? i suppose i was saying at the time i didn’t need a ring BUT STILL i didn’t know he went ring shopping.
at the time he was saying he was happy the way things were and that getting married wasn’t a priority – this was all a ruse i find out now.
i’m like you can still propose to me, its not like i actually set out to ask you to marry me dude, i’m unconventional but i would have at least planned something.
what the hell am i supposed to tell my kids?mummy and daddy loved each other so much that mummy got drunk and thought it would be awesome to get married?
my grandmother warned me about drinking, should have listened.
i know this is nuts, but hey its my life.
