- Wedding: October 2011 - Our Lady of Grace Catholic Church / Rosebank Winery
OMG. This totally makes me so mad. I have heard “it’s about time” and “finally” in terms of us getting engaged (from a couple single friends in particular). I’m about to rant: but since when is it your prerogative to concern yourself with the definitions of my personal relationship status and where we are as a couple? I personally think that it’s the perfect time and just shut up if you don’t have anything nice to say! One person in particular always says it to couples on Facebook when the ring comes AND when they get married…. I know that it is just joking (perhaps) but it completely pisses me off. (I’m getting mad even thinking about it hive!!).

I’ve been getting a lot of that lately too… “What is he waiting for???”

What’s bad is when those comments are coming from his ex wife…we were at a carnival type thing the other day and they had some gaudy fake rings at a booth. She picked one up and went, “Tell HeFlutter that when he gets his head out of his ass, this is the size rock you want. I wish I know what in the hell he was waiting for…” Yes, from his EX WIFE… O.o
I’ve decided that I’m getting the word FINALLY printed on our STD cards: Guess Who’s (FINALLY!) Engaged!!

Try to think of it as everyone around you guys has seen that you are so in love and perfect for each other that they knew you were meant to be for some time. 🙂 And you’ll be so happy and excited about wedding planning that you won’t care too much anyway.

Already dreading it! been together 7.5 years in a few weeks. Friends and family are fine about it, since they know us and understand why it’s been so long. The worst have been jewelry store employees – ignoring me standing there and exclaiming, “wow, so you’re finally ready to commit to her, huh? took you long enough!” to him. That is so RUDE. A nice “aww, yay! how exciting for you guys!” would have been much more appropriate. I’ve actually begged him to stop taking me to stores for this reason.

I want to say STFU and leave it alone! He’s waiting until he’s ready!

LOL – I said the “FINALLY” for everyone- I was so done with all the damn waiting. Trust me, it will not phase you and if anyone had any sort of tact, they wouldn’t say it to your face.

I worried about this too! My Fiance and I were dating for nearly six years when he proposed. Everybody was so caught up and excited for us that we didn’t really get that. We did get a lot of people wondering when he was going to do it beforehand. I think it will be okay! I like what @CaitMarae:
said…finally is better than that was quick!

I would be glad of the “FINALLY”‘s.. may make him realise how long it took for him to get off his butt and propose.

i am totally prepared for this, especially since i’ve accidentaly uttered those annoying words myself. but considering that we’ve been together for over 6 years now and people are asking why haven’t we gotten married yet, it’s inevitable. but underneath it all, i know they will be excited and happy for us

Yes, I feel the same way. Just the dread of someone saying FINALLY!!! My Fiance took over 10 yrs!! So I guess it is expected but no one has said anything but very nice wishes. I didn’t post it on Facebook because I know I will get some finally comments there. The dread is not as bad after you get engaged as it is when you are waiting. Now I’m really at ease about everything.

I’ll easily be able to ignore anything like that AS LONG AS WE ARE GETTING MARRIED…!!!
Post # 29
haha so true!!
how did you resist the urge of posting it on facebook??

I was going to and then my Fiance asked me not too because he doesn’t want people talking. I think he is worried that his friends will start hasseling him. I bet they would cause they are kinda A-holes sometimes. He doesn’t have a facebook account and does not like it so maybe that is why too. Oh well, I’m fine with it.

This is funny, I was thinking about this the other day! I know people will say “Finally!” but I don’t think it’ll irritate me too bad because I’ll be thinking the same thing when it “finally” happens, haha. But the questions now about “what is he waiting for” are definitely annoying. Especially from friends who know that I’m (im)patiently waiting!
