@pisces36: i think that if more women had the balls to dump men because of what they believe in and what they want, a lot more guys would respect us for it and step up to the plate

I just saw it tonight. Great episode. I’m rooting for Michael Scott!

I watched it with SO and we briefly talked about ultimatums. His stance is that they never work, and he agreed with Pam in the last episode where she said successful marriages don’t usually start off with ultimatums. He also believed it was wrong of AJ to not be able to meet Holly’s needs which led her to giving an ultimatum at all. Great man!

My thoughts? Well, that I shouldn’t give SO an ultimatum unless it was my last resort! And realize that I’d have to follow through. Hopefully it will never get to that tho!!

My SO and I decided on a timeline a while ago and it is fast approaching. I have been very good not talking about rings and our upcoming timeline because he has told me several times that he is researching and beginning the process of ring selection, and I was afraid this episode might open doors for conversation that we are done having. Since we already agreed on our timeline I thought it would be best to eliminate possible discussion of timelines…so I deleted the episode from the DVR after watching it without him. I figured if we agreed on when we are taking the next step then we don’t need to watch TV about people that don’t follow through with engagement timelines. I might be being superstitous, and call me crazy, but this episode made me nervous! Thankfully, he didn’t ask why The Office didn’t record this week!

I watched it and I was glad she dumped him! Guys are lazy about a lot of things, and I have set up timelines for various things that my Fiance has not met (like picking groomsmen, working on playlists, cleaning the freaking bathroom(!) lol)… but I never gave him a timeline or ultimatum to propose. I feel like for the IMPORTANT stuff– if a guy wants to do it he will. If I had had to put him on a deadline I would always worry that he was proposing to avoid me breaking up with him, not proposing because he wants to marry me. And marriage can be hard enough without wondering if your guy is really in it for the right reasons.

I watched it last week, but then was thinking about convincing my SO to watch it again. Maybe pretending i hadn’t seen it, in hopes that it’ll spur some conversations!
