SO had a job interview yesterday (yay!) and when he was telling me about it he said “I hope you don’t mind I called you my fiancée, it just sounded better – plus if I get the job maybe I’ll be able to buy a ring soon.” …and then just kept talking like nothing happened.
I about died.
So, ladies: what little things have your SOs said lately that gave you hope? Or just made you feel warm and fuzzy? 🙂

A friend had said something to SO along the lines of “Buddy you are not ready for kids yet” last weekend. SO thought that his friend had said I was ready for kids and his response was “Oh ya, she is totally in mom mode now. Only a matter of time!” with a smile on his face. It was just funny because he said afterward he can see the kind of mom i will be (because of how i treat our puppy) and he says i will be great at it. I think the whole thing was brought up because i said “Puppy, can you please come here?” and they were laughing that i said Please to a dog.
Also, this weekend i said “Good thing i married an electrician” to my SO. IMMEDIATELY i said “whoops sorry!! we aren’t even engaged and i’m already saying that! kinda embarrassing”. He just smiled. He said it was cute how i back tracked and tried to cover when i didnt need to.

@crosscountry09: Ahhh! So exciting!!
Sometimes when my SO gets business calls at odd hours (after dinner, on the weekend) he says “I’m with my family right now” (aka me) …always makes me melt a little 🙂

When i catch my guy checking out other women, he’ll say “I’m married, not dead.” Fortunately I don’t get jealos easily, & when i tell him its starting to bug me he quits.
From the start we’ve joked about “when we get married…”&”when we have kids…” Last night we were complaining about the bathroom being so small & he made Comment about turning one of the bedrooms into a master bath. When I pointed out that it would only leavethe tiny bedroom for a spare, he said “Yeah, but all we’ll be putting in there is a kid.”
Still too early to be talking weddings, much less kids, but makes me feel good that he’s thinking this is heading that way.

I had close to the same. SO had a job interview and we both think it went pretty well. He did mention getting engaged sooner if he gets it. I still hate that he’s making me wait for him to get a job. I did tease him packing last night for our trip about if he put my ring the bag yet or not he gave me a big ole smile. Like the ‘I’m up to something” smile. He’s a bad liar. Maybe there is hope for this trip, I’m thinking no but getting closer.

@jpalm13: Oh men and their jobs! Haha the job thing is huge for SO, I told him I don’t care about a big ring or whatever but he’s a bit old fashioned and really wants that and to feel like he has his career in order before he asks. Hearing that word (fiancée) come out of his mouth just made me melt though!
Good luck on your trip! Try to enjoy it even if it’s less sparkly than you would want 🙂

My SO told me that he and his coworker refer to me and the coworker’s SO as the “wifeys”. Made me smile. Espeically since my SO doesn’t like to talk too much about proposals/rings/future because he wants it to be a surprise.
