At the rate things tend to go, there is no point of me being “in” on this challenge. Not that I’d written it in stone or anything.
Mr. Postman delivers a package today and addresses me as “Ms. BF-lastname”. How am I supposed to not mention “oh so the postman today called me Ms. BF-lastname… jerk.”
It’s like looking at people’s front doors with their initial on it, and wanting such a door, but having to say “but our last names don’t match, how can we have such a wonderful door?!”
And last weekend my aunt calls me “Ms. BF-nickname”. It’s like I’m not Uncle Fester anymore, I’m Mr. Debbie! I tell this to BF, and what does he say? “I like the sound of Ms. BF-nickname”. WTH, BF. If you’re going to take their side, go all the way. Meanie.

I’ve gotten a little bad about making comments…at least once per day. So I’m joining in on this too!

I’m in! I tried vowing to a friend two weeks ago that I would stop mentioning engagements and weddings, but I failed. This time I am really doing it!

I’m in! I will try not to bring up the topic of weddings/engagement. I know we will get engaged soon…we have to because we’re planning a May 21, 2010 wedding! I need to stop talking about it anyway because I know he wants it to be a surprise.

I am so in!
however, his grandma keeps asking me when the engagement party is so let’s hope i don’t see her, seeing as we’re not engaged 😛
but i think i can do it. although he’s been bringing it up more often, so it’ll be hard 😛

Okay, entrapment! MNbf and I were at the apartment of a friend of his, and the friend and his fiancee are getting married in a few months and bf is a groomsman, and the fiancee was well into wedding-mode so we all talked about wedding stuff for a while. But only about THEIR wedding…that doesn’t count, right?
I’m starting to feel bad about thinking so much about it, because I brought up my thoughts about the future (and, okay, engagement hopes) a few weeks ago (PRE-challenge), and I think he feels like he’s disappointing me. And I don’t want him to feel like he’s not a good boyfriend to me or anything…
…so I think this challenge is a GOOD thing for me. If I can stick to it.

This is going to be SO hard for me, but I really NEED to join this challenge as talking about engagement/marriage all the time certainly doesn’t seem to be helping my relationship with my BF. So, count me in!

Maybe I shouldn’t have started this thread. I almost slipped up today big time! S is in Vegas for work for 5 whole days. He called me this morning to let me know that he should have never gambled without me there (when I gamble with him, he always comes out ahead). He told me he already lost at least $700 last night!!!!! He is also going out tonight (not to gamble but to probably see another Vegas form of entertainment =/). Instead of yelling and telling him he could have put that money towards a ring I laughed it off saying next time he should just bring me. Sigh… He feels bad about losing that kinda of money and he said “I really could have used that money for other things.” I’m hoping he meant a ring but he could also mean for his business he’s starting. He still has a few more days there and I just hope he doesn’t lose more money. This better not mean I have to wait longer! Grrr!!!! How can I still keep my mouth shut after THAT!

I’m definitely doing this. I was in the Christmas Challenge (although I didn’t know it was going on…I had just resolved to do it on my own), but I kind of messed up a few days after NYE and had a little melt down in front of him about not knowing where the relationship was going and not being able to plan my own future was driving me crazy blah blah blah. I think I put a lot of pressure on him and he told me I wouldn’t have to wait forever (ugh).
So now I’m resolved not to say anything until the summer. First step is not to say anything until Feb 14th!

@ceamoste- funny you mention that! my (then) boyfriend (now FI)’s grandmother introduced me (the whoolllee night!) at a wedding one time as his fiance!! i thought nothing of it, trying to stick to my own challenge myself…little did i know, she was just confused b/c she knew of the ring, but he didn’t propose until 1 month later. but, like you, i thought nothing of it at the time!
good luck girls, you can do it!!!
