@Dizbee: Absolutely!  In our case, sometimes our rabbit will try to “stake his claim” on the soft comfy couch, but there are usually territorial warning signs… but twice we’ve had to work late or had class so neither of us could let our rabbit out of his cage to play (usually he gets from 6pm – 10pm), so those nights he went straight to the couch… allowed us to pet him and tell him what a pretty boy he is… and then peeeeeeeee.

Dear boyfriend,

When we are in public you call me momma even though we have no kids, and the last time we hung out with your family your mom said “give your mother in law a hug” to me. I thought nothing of it until you mentioned how it was cute after we left. Um, yeah hi, we need to get married before she’s actually my MIL!!! Propose already!

Yours truly,

Love this!


Dear SO,

It’s really, really sweet that you’re so concerned about “living up to my expectations”. You know what my expectations are? Seeing you at the other end of that aisle. At the end of the day I don’t care about the rest. I love you and I wish there was a way I could get this through your thick skull so you would get a move on! ๐Ÿ™‚ You make me so happy, all I want is to call you my husband some day.




P.S. I looked into it, and I’m pretty sure a smoke-bomb exit is against a couple of fire codes. That would’ve been pretty sweet though.

Dear “Boyfriend”,

I apologize for being wordy. But if I don’t go into detail you tend to miss things. For example I said “I have four exams this week so I need to study.” And you missed that I meant “I have four exams this week that I’m going to invest 10 hours a day studying for because I’m an A student and therefore I need you to leave me in silence to do my work. So, no I am not going to finish watching Spartacus with you tonight. And no I am not in the mood to have sex when I’m stressed out and exhausted. But I still love you.” Anyhow…

I hate calling you boyfriend. I mean do you remember when we decided that “boyfriend/girlfriend” described our relationship? It took us 4 months of dating exclusively and sleeping in each other’s arms 6 nights a week to realize that the term fit. And do you remember me being the one to bring it up?

Another 2 and a half months later I weighed the pros and the cons, did some soul searching, and decided I was in love with you. So I sucked it up and told you even though I was terrified my feelings wouldn’t be returned. And do you recall what you said? “You sure? Because I certainly gave you more than enough time to figure it out.” Pause, “I love you too.” Later you told me that you knew you loved me months before our talk. And you let me be the one to step up, Mr. Macho?

 Well a year has passed since then. And now I hate calling you boyfriend because it doesn’t fit anymore. When we became “boyfriend/girlfriend” you were just a guy that I liked to spend time around and the sentiment was returned. But partner, lover, “boyfriend”, that’s not what we are anymore. You are not a guy anymore. You are ‘the’ guy. I’m planning a future with you, I rely on you, I’m willing to consider having a kid with you (later in life I still have my priorities straight), and I started considering marriage with you, a subject I couldn’t care less about before. Oh yeah I was the first one to bring up marriage in serious context too.

I love you. Really I do, but I would really like for you to step up for once. I’m content as long as I am by your side but “boyfriend” I’d really like to start calling you husband. You see it’s not the ring I’m after. All I want is a promise of forever with you.



P.S. No matter how many times you ask I will not move in with you until you propose. Besides your roommate is super allergic to my cat.

Ahhh… I LOVE this!!!!    It feels so great not to be alone in the “waiting game”


Dear Faux-Husband,

I love you, you love me, when the hell are we gonna get married???  Its been 10, yes TEN years, and we are 35, not 25!   I know you wanted it “to be a surprise” but the surprise factor is over.  The surprise will be if you actually do it or not!  

We own a house together, we talk about our future, you say you want kids… well, we aren’t getting any younger!  Last year you agreed that it would happen in 2011, then you said January 2012, now you say “another month or 2” … will you put a ring on it already?  

Life is short, and I am tired of waiting for mine to begin.  


Your Faux-Wife

Dear boyfriend,


I love the shit out of you. I can’t wait to start the next phase of our relationship and I know you can’t wait either so let’s do this ok? I know you are saving and it makes me so anxious and excited and I can’t help but talk about it so I hope you aren’t annoyed with me ๐Ÿ™‚ You say its cute and you’re happy that I talk about it so I’ve been completely open about my obsession (ok maybe you don’t know the full extent of it LOL the bee’s know though!) Anyhow, can’t wait to travel the world and spend forever with you and our future family ๐Ÿ™‚

LOL! This is a really fab thread! So Funny and certainly makes me feel better abour being in the same boat as everyone else!! So here’s mine…

Dear Boyfriend,

We moved in together the day we got together, I cook your meals, I clean your clothes, I pay our bills, we have a mortgage and a dog, neither of us are clearly going anywhere so why wait.

I know you want to surprise me but guess what the nicest surprise is simple, to come home to a clean house, a nice bottle of wine and you asking me to spend the rest of my life with you! No big flash gesture needed! In fact, you don’t even have to remeber the wine!

I’ve been debating whether or not to put this up, but what the hell (it’s not really funny, sorry ladies!)

Dear Boyfriend:

We have been together for 5 years. I was ok with waiting because I wanted to get my ducks in a row as well. Then the wedding free for all began and all of a sudden everyone we knew was getting married. That started to make me think “why not us? They aren’t completely settled but are taking the plunge”. But I let it go. Then the worst thing happened. I lost my grandmother afew weeks ago. I was so close to her and it hurts to not have her here anymore. Now I am realizing she won’t be there to see me get married. That kills me. I don’t blame you, but it does make me sad. Now we find out that your grandmother is really sick and she would really want to see her favorite grand child get married. You know your her favorite, especially since while she was giving a little speech about your cousin at HER BRIDAL SHOWER, she proceeded to go on a tangent about how you were her favorite! in front of your entire family and your cousins in-laws and friends lol.

I love you, lets get the show on the road already…you big booger.

New one:

Dear Boyfriend:

Thank you for going home with me this weekend to watch my sister’s dance recital. You should thank me for driving. I love you and want to be with you forever. But, your comment while I was driving of “We really need to figure out what we’re doing”….. Coulda punched ya but I had to focus on the road. You know what I want us to be doing and that I’m waiting for you to make that conclusion, as well. Get a move on it!

Love, ME

@Dell79:  Amen!  My SO says this to me all the time. “I want it to be perfect” and “I want it to be a suprise”.  Guess what! The ship has sailed on us having a “perfect” engagement because a “perfect” engagement would have happened long before I waited myself into insanity.  After waiting 3 years “perfect” and “surprise” are definitely out the window, he should just hurry up and do it before “yes” is out the window, too!!

How about an upbeat one?

Dear boyfriend,

Thank you for putting up with me. We spent all weekend moving apartments and I love you that you continue to tell me that you love me and want to spend your life with me, even when I get cranky from being exhausted. Thank you for being patient as I decide where the coffee maker should go and dropping what you’re doing to help me find the lost cord to my tv, even though we never did find it. Thank you for being handy and able to run the cable line through walls (and neatly!) so I can lie in bed and watch tv, even though the silly apartment building only has a cable outlet in the living room. Thank you for hugging and kissing me even though I smelled of sweat from running up and down stairs and had fast-food breath. I love you with all my heart and so happy we now have our own apartment — that its not just you living in my apartment, but that we have a new one we can decorate and arrange together. I can’t wait to live the rest of my life with you, and guess what, we’ve already started. Becoming engaged and getting married will just be the icing on the cake.
