WEIRD! I keep my personal life far from my professional life. Very few of my co-workers even know that I’m dating someone (and we’ve been together for 5 years!) I am NOT excited at all about telling them when I get engaged, I have actually been thinking about wearing my ring around my neck for the first few weeks until I really get used to the fact that I’m engaged. I’m just a really private person at work… I feel like it’s nobody’s business but my own.

Sorry you’re going through that… I really don’t understand why someone would completely stop talking to you like that.

What a weirdo…I’d just chalk it up to him being strange and ignore it. Ick. Congrats on the engagement, btw. 🙂

i’m the same way about keeping personal things quiet at work.  they knew i was dating someone, but i didn’t explicitely tell anyone when we got engaged.  i wore the ring, but didn’t say anything and when they realized it some people actually got ANGRY at me for not telling them.  whatever.

I totally know where you’re coming from. I’m keeping my engagement on the down low at work too because it’s a small venue and I can’t invite everyone to the wedding. I finally told my boss I was getting married and instead of congratualting me, she told me I had to contact HR about my name change. Ummm, thanks?

I know what you mean. When I got engaged, a friend of mine suddenly stopped talking to me as much. Oh, he was his usual self when I was alone, but if my fiance (now husband) was with me, I was completely ignored. He did his best to ignore my existence and avoid eye contact if we tried to include him in group activities. There were other people, all guys actually, who suddenly stopped talking to me altogether.

Anyway, maybe this guy is mad because you proved him wrong or that you took away his chance to give you a hard time.
