Aw! Sounds like it’s coming soon! You’re lucky he is so understanding of how frustrating waiting can be!

@EmmyGirl:  We get that ALL the time: we are an “established” couple and the way our lives are now probably won’t change much when we get married, so many assume we are married.  Even friends that know we arent will still refer to me as “his wife” when introducing us.  I’ve yet to hear Boyfriend or Best Friend correct anyone :-p

 

I’ve been plagued with strange marriage dreams almost every night lately, so I feel ya there.  The ring part made me chuckle though, as about a year back my Boyfriend or Best Friend said he was going to email me some pics of rings to see if I liked any of them.  I’d always been of the “he can choose it and I’ll love it” school of thought, but after looking at his email, i’m firmly *not* in that camp anymore: I hated pretty much everything he sent, so much that I’m honestly not sure where he found them in the first place.  Right about then he took me to look and rings and now we are on the same page ๐Ÿ™‚

Ah what an ordeal to go through! SO and I have many family members constantly badgering us if we are engaged yet but never went so far as to just assume we were alreay! Though SO’s Mother kept asking him this weekend if he was engaged just because we asked some details from his sister’s wedding to get an idea of size for ours. Sorry you had to deal with all the questions and hopefully you and your Boyfriend or Best Friend can have some sense of humor about it and move forward. Maybe a ring is in your near future! Hopefully not the one of your dream! But the one you dream of in your waking hours. Best of luck.

hahahahah I can’t even comment on your family thing because I am still doubled over laughing at your dream!! three different colored diamonds for your initials, that doesn’t even sound that far off from what some guys would think of

I have been in your shoes before with this! Family sometimes makes it strange, and even friends can say crazy things. He knows that I want to be with him and that I’m waiting on him, and that lets us laugh these things off a little more easily. Just join the fun and bring a plastic baggy that says “wedding fund” and bring it out when people ask. I’d say something like “You can help!”

@EmmyGirl:  Oh my gosh. That would be so nerve wracking! I’m so sorry! 

My SO’s friends always greet me by pulling my left hand really close to their face ‘looking for a ring’. ๐Ÿ˜› It was funny at first but now I feel like they are putting too much pressure on him!! If people started prematurely congratulating me, I’d go crazy!

@MeiFrancis:  I laughed more about your comment that “that’s not far off from what some guys would think of” hahahahaha

OP, at least your SO was so sweet about it afterwards and you know it’s coming soon! ๐Ÿ™‚

Maybe he asked for permission from your parents and they accidentally let the cat out of the bag too early?

@kendra389:  can’t you just imagine some guy all puffed up and proud of himself for his originality and the significance of the colors??? “some girls just get a random letter, but I wanted to make sure yours mattered! Isn’t it great???”
