Okay, so my wonderful, darling, charming Boyfriend or Best Friend and I started playing Lord of the Rings Online about a week or so ago. We’ve started our characters from scratch and have been leveling up together. When you reach level 15, you can give your character a last name. As we got to about level 13, my Boyfriend or Best Friend starts saying, “We should give our characters the same last name.” I mean, the little elves already *dress* alike and do everything together – why not, right? When we finally got to that place in the game – *THE* place where you choose the name you’ll have to live with for the rest of your character’s existence – after what seemed like little or no deliberation, he looks over at me and says, “Let’s give both of our characters MY last name!!”
Are…you…SERIOUS?!? Are men REALLY that thick? Now, not only am I pining away because I’m not engaged, AND I’m participating in this bloody V-Day challenge, but now I have to deal with the fact that our 2-dimensionsal, imaginary computer game characters have the same last name, whilst I can’t even get a ring on my finger?
Does anyone else’s BF/SO do stuff like that that makes you cock your head to to the side and go, “Did that *really* just come out of your mouth???”

Yeah, last summer my boyfriend and I went camping and he walked me to the bathrooms. When we were walking back to our campsite a woman passing by said, “How sweet! I wish my husband would walk me to the bathrooms!” Boyfriend or Best Friend gets all giggly and says, “Hehehe she thought I was your husband!” (Commence big goofy grin.) Well, Boyfriend or Best Friend, you could be if you just asked me already!!

I hope your boyfriend doesn’t think those elves are your children

Ha, yeah, guys really are that dense!
I once told my guy that I needed him to do more around the house. He asks what needs to be done (really? like you can’t look around and figure it out? but that’s for another post…), and I tell him it’d be nice if he could fold the laundry or something. He then tells me (brace yourselves, ladies) that his mom always folded the laundry at his house. This was my “did that really just come out of your mouth?!” moment.
Mind you, he’s a student and was on break when this came up, and I’m working my tail off to support the both of us! Needless to say, he got an earful and shaped up:)

That’s sort of hilariously awesome. You should have told him he would have to put a ring on it before even your elf would take his last name :).

@jo.lee: Bwaaaahhhh!! That’s awesome!! I actually looked at him after it was over and went, “Now that wasn’t so bad, was it??” And I got the look of doooooom…

I would have asked if that means they are MARRIED or just related! 🙂

@mispriss1215: I would have asked the same- too funny!

Yeah, are they married elves or brother and sister elves? 😉 Men. Jeez.

If I had thought of something snappy, I might have let it fly. But that would be in direct violation of the Valentine’s Day Challenge, so I let it slip…mostly… 😉

Whenever I see titles like this, I usually think “YES” in my head before even opening the thread. After seeing your post… I still say… “YES!” lol
I don’t know what your V-day challenge is but I think I would have given quite the incredulous look to him at that suggestion!

Mine actually signed our name as “Mr. and Mrs… XYZ” in a guest book as a joke not long ago. I told him I wasn’t laughing.

@LoveMyDogs: I’d have been tempted to punch him…

Prior to engagment:
bf: “Wow! it feels like we are already married……… my wifey…………. [big smile]”
me: (thinking in my head all in one breath) “But we are not, you f**kin’ moron! And worst of all, we are not even CLOSE. So don’t start with the ‘wifey’ sh*t. Either get engaged with or without the ring, cuz I frankly couldn’t give a damn about jewelry at this point since my life is passing me f**kin’ by, or f**kin’ move on!”
me in real life answer: [big smile]
Prior to marriage (after being engaged):
fi: “I feel like leasing a Mercedes. Now that my BMW is gone, I need something else.”
me: (thinking in my head) “Sayyyy whaaaaaaaa….?!?! Who the f**k is supposed to be helping save up for our wedding?! If I was the only one who is saving up, while you are thinking of frivolous purchases, then I might as well just marry myself!”
me in real life answer: “Hmm….. seems like I might need someone… err…. i mean something else too.”
