Tonight my boyfriend and I went to a couple’s house for dinner and dessert. They started dating one month before us, but are in different places in their lives than my significant other and I are in.
The female friend brings up how she took the male friend, her boyfriend to a bridal show a couple of months ago, just for fun and to look at stuff. They had a great time and the guy is always talking about how he wants to marry the girl. She insisted that it’s just to look at pretty things, and then when the two guys went off on a tangent she shyly looked at me and said “Or…. you know..for planning … things.” I gave her an understanding smile and nod.
My boyfriend had fun with the conversation, and I am SO resisting the urge to prod him for his thoughts. It is so much fun to poke at him lightheartedly!
There is another bridal show coming up next month and I’m sure the girl and I will go and have fun. It will just be two girls having daydreams and a good time. I’m going to have a hard time not talking about the stuff! lol
So, what things makes keeping quiet harder? 😀

When people are discussing marriage right in front of you.
Getting engaged right in front of you (ahem, facebook).

@Tunacupcakes: When he says, “You will be my wife.” C’mon, how am I NOT supposed to ask, “OKAY, WHEN?!” Haha.

A month ago, I photographed my first wedding (!), I also design wedding invitations on the side… So needless to say, being surrounded by that does not help in any way, shape or form!
And we’re close friends with FIVE other couples that are also on the brink of engagement.
GAH. I’m just ready to do it already! 😉

Takes me awhile to reply….
Wow… I also have every single one of these things happening to me. The facebook issue.. the boyfriend bringing up something he read or saw…helping someone else with their wedding….the boyfriend telling me I’ll be his wife SOMEDAY.
I came back to this thread because he again on his own said a few days ago “You know, I always thought I would get you a sapphire for your engagement ring.” and then last night we were talking about him moving out of state a a year or so and he brought up (without me even mentioning commitment or engagement. I was talking about webcams!) that he is considering proposing before we begin our 4 year LDR to… give something to somewhat anchor our relationship to, if that makes any sense. That would be next summer!
Everyone else should jump in here. I know we all have boyfriends or other people making it just a little bit harder. lol
