I think allowences should be made for drinking on birthdays during the Christmas Challenge.  Sorry it’s a bad day for you… I guess I can say “I know how you feel?”

I remember feeling really glum at my 30th, partly for the lack of a marraige, but also because I had no (sane) family with whom to share it… my Boyfriend or Best Friend got his family to surprise me with a small get together, but I ended up crying because it hurt that a group of people to whom I am still not officially attached did more than people who share my DNA.  Bleh.

Don’t worry about the number of the year – you’re only as old as you feel, and I have celebrated my 8th annual 25th birthday last March πŸ˜›  If your SO syas he’s working on getting things together, then he is.  I like to speak in analogiese, so here goes:

At my first “real” job interview, I was given a typing test – I’m no typist, as my posts show, but usually I’m a pretty good hunt-and-pecker (except on message boards – typos abound).  I was doing just fine, UNTIL the interviewer came and stood right behind me.  I panicked, got anxious and self councois and didn’t feel so good about my typing and just wanted to stop, and run and hide.  I think everyone gets nervous when the boss is watching… so if your SO thinks you’re watching over his shoulder, he’s gonna want to run and hide.  I think the hardest thing to do is to stay away from the “Why aren’t you telling me you love me by proposing this very moment” feelings (and boy, is that hard – I was just having a pity party myself before getting on here) and try to do/think of anything else.

PS What is SYTTD?  (Haven’t had cable TV in 7 years – TV dunce)

@Isilme: SYTTD: Say yes to the dress. Also, I love your “analogeise” πŸ™‚ And great analogy! I never thought of it that way but it’s so true!

No sage advice, but I have to say I’m having one of those days too. πŸ™

I almost started a post titled ‘One of those days’ with the post going something like this:


Picture me with my hands on the side of my head, pulling my hair as hard as possible.LMAO!

I think you can just let him know – “by the way, I’m ready” 

Some guys need to be told – it is a nervewracking thing to propose!
