Hey Waiting bees,
SO and I had a fight the other night about how long it’s taken him to propose (8 years and counting) – SO said ‘you know what? This arguement is getting kinda old’, to which I replied (without even thinking) ‘well if you hadn’t taken so long it wouldn’t have had a chance to get old!’ – that shut him right up! Childish I know but it was a good point and won the argument…
Have you had any awesome comebacks when your SO gets grumpy about engagement/wedding talk?

I didn’t wait very long as my FH is much older than I am, but I just wanted to give you props for an awesome comeback! =)

Love it! And after eight years what did he think you were going to say?!
Post # 5
That was perfect. I’m pretty quick witted if I do say so myself and have stopped SO in his smarty pants tracks more than once. It definitely helps when they want to act like our desires for engagement are rushed or pressured.

I love it! Sometimes it is good to say what is on your mind 🙂 You go girl!

Wow! Good call.
Hopefully he took the hint and plans on proposing soon.

Ahahaha. Hilarious. I’m pretty sure he earned that one.

I’m so glad this gave you a good giggle like it did me – except I feel terrible now…
SO asked me last night how much annual leave I have left, because he wants me to keep 5 days aside, I told him that I can spare that many days, however after April my co-workers have quite a lot of time booked off, and one is going on maternity leave so things will b hectic until about July. SO said ‘well f*** them, take it off anyway, we’ll be getting engaged’ . I know he’s looking at around April/May time and has plans that involve the sunshine (although we’re in the UK so rarely get sunshine (maybe we’re going further a field?)!). Who knows, maybe my remark finally got the point across?
I’m going to need some serious help from you bees now though to keep quiet until then – and see if I can find some clues as to where he’ll be taking me!

This isn’t so snappy but it became a common exchange pre-proposal:
him: “If you loved me you’d wait forever”
me: “If you loved ME you wouldn’t make me wait forever!”

@emmylouloubobells: Aww… He basically told you when you’d be getting engaged? :-/ Well, you *have* waited a long time, so I’m sure you’re super thrilled, either way! Ha Glad he’s going to stop dragging his feet. The closer it gets, the more likely he’ll be to tell you @ least how you should dress (for sun, warm or cold weather, etc.) Maybe go shopping & pick out a new outfit or two?
Fingers crossed for you! Hopefully, he takes you somewhere special. 🙂

Well done on the snappy comeback… I’m never able to think of them that fast.
But why did you say that you feel terrible? It sounds like you communicated your feelings (albeit in a heated discussion) and now he understands where you’re coming from.
Fingers crossed you go somewhere amazing, though anywhere can be amazing when you’re with the right person.
Keep those nails looking good!

@Mouse217: Thanks for your kind words, I’ve given up on a surprise a long time ago – the surprise is that he actually proposes!… I did tell him a story of my friend who SO took her away from a surprise (not for a proposal) and he called her boss and booked the time off without her knowing… but my SO isn’t very observent. We also have sometime booked off over easter as well, and I asked SO if I should cancel it. He said no, so it could be a double bluff (and keeps me guessing a little!).
@Mrs Eye wannabe: I know I communicated clearly however I’ve been ‘communicating clearly’ quite a bit recently (nagging), so i’m now back on the waggon to give SO some peace.
I’ve just looked at my nails and need to tidy them up for sure!

Hahah i am not that witty. But SO needs his passport renewed soon, I’ve told him to do it 100 times already:
“Cant you just do it for me? I don’t know what to do!” –Him
“Well I’m not your mother and I’m definitely NOT your wife so as far as I’m concerned its not my problem” – Me
He took the hint. And seriously he needs to grow up.

Gotta say, mine is pretty cruel. My SO still gets worked up about his ex at times because she makes comments about his comments on mutual friends’ facebook accounts. When it happens and he gets so angry about her I always feel like the runner up prize and am ashamed to say I have a habit of saying: “Yes, yes you say she’s a b**ch etc but you were going to marry her, you won’t marry me though will you? Says a lot about what you think of me”

- Wedding: June 2017 - Vegas Wedings
@Scottish_lassie: Oh, Im so sorry you feel that way. I would be devestated each time. Poor thing!
@emmylouloubobells: Thankfully, I havent gottne to the point whereI nag so much he gets grumpy. But I can tell you its coming (I can hear my biological ticking like a time bomb). Thats partially why I began actually posting here rather than lurking. I gotta get stuff out somewhere and better here than in my SOs ear!
