@qwerty2k1:  I think you are in a very fortunate possition where the statement was ment with genuine mirth and excitement about you joining the family. It is great to hear.

It’s different every time you hear it. And what phase the moon is in (if you catch my drift)

@qwerty2k1:  This summer was so hard for me. I must have been asked at least 6 times when we were getting married. The last two times was twice in the span of 2 days and I wanted to scream. And now my grandma is on it. But I know she Just wants to see me in the dress because…she’s getting up there in age, ya know?

It doesn’t bother me if I know it’s coming from a place of sincerity. ๐Ÿ™‚ In my circle, though, most people are artsy bohemians and marriage is not on their radar at all, so they don’t really think about it. But it’s happened two times recently… one, a friend of a friend asked if (not when) we thought about getting married, and that was nice. She was really sweet about it. And then a few weeks ago we were at my friend’s house for her bday party and her mom somehow thought we were engaged and asked us, “So, y’all set a date yet?” lol, it was funny at the moment… She thought she was just making conversation. ๐Ÿ˜‰

It really does depend on the person asking and their tone.
