mrs.akjp :  I myself have been getting asked this question and all of its variations almost daily here lately!😣 Whend you tell people that you have been together 8+ years! I’ve been told by someone very close to him, that maybe he’s just not that into you! You know we all wants him to be with ___________! We don’t know why he chose you in the first place, you just don’t fit in with our group. Now those hurt, even though I try to act like they don’t. But my amazing SO always comes to my rescue (it’s only happen about 3 times over the 8+ years) and sets the record straight. That he loves me and couldn’t imagine his life without me. Now the ones from my grandmother and older couples that we know, even though it throws it in my face that we have been together for such a long time and are not married or even engaged…I think it’s cute! They have been with their spouse for 25+ years and can see that we belong together! SO’s birthday is Wednesday maybe I’ll get to be his forever present! Fingers crossed!!!

Oh I know it’s soo annoying. SO and I have been dating for 4 1/2 years and every big event or party were asked when the ring is coming.  I don’t think he knows how annoying it is for me -.-

Watching myself move higher on this list is so goddamn depressing.

On the bright side, last night my FH said he thought my mom could “tell” that it was “coming up soon.”  πŸ˜€

I love reading about all these proposals every week! So happy for the newly engaged bees! πŸ˜€

My guy has just told me he’s chosen a ring, but not bought it yet, so I’m excited!

Aaaah these questions…I too have started to cringe when someone new asks how long we’ve been together. While we were still in school it was totally a point of pride for me. But now we’re established in our careers and adult lives…the reaction has moved from “wow, you must be serious!” to “so what’s the hold up?!” πŸ˜‰ 

 

As for questions about when we’ll be engaged…it drives me nuts when someone asks just me, but I secretly am ok when someone asks my SO while we’re together. He can use the reminder!
