WHEN ARE YOU GETTING ENGAGED??? How in the poppy seed hell am I suppose to know! (any co-signers?)
Why do we get asked that question? Seriously, why??? Last time I checked, we don’t propose to ourselves. I just had a moment with one of my friends. Geesh. I know I get asked that question at least once a week!

“How in the poppy seed hell am I suppose to know!”
THAT is hilarious!!! I literally laughed out loud at that..
Seriously though, I HATED that question.

That always got on my nerves, too! I used to tell people to ask R, because I didn’t know. 😉

agreed! Or, “are you guys EVER going to get married?”

That question is horrible! Oddly enough, J is the one who is always getting it– I’ve never been asked that!

Hahaha, yes, the answer to that question is “I’d like to know too, so when you find out please holla at me”.

I totally agree. what a DUMB question to ask a girl.

I hated that question too!! It has since been replaced by “WHEN are you going to have that baby?”
I think I’ll use your response, because I LOVE it so!!

some of fi’s family members used to ask me that before we got engaged. i’d always respond with “i dunno – ask mr.v!” so maybe i put him on the spot once or twice (or 50 times, lol), but it was nice to know that his family was in agreement with me and my “i-think-it’s-time-we-get-engaged-now” thinking. 🙂

I finally found my new answer right before we got engaged (so I never got to actually use it). So, I’ll share with you, and if you use it, let me know what response you get:
“What makes you think he didn’t already propose and I said no?”

I swear if my mom asks me that one more time….. haha I always tell her to just ask SO but then she goes what don’t you two talk about anything? I mean you live together you should know when you’re getting married. I like your thinking Goldilocks LOL

You know what ladies? The ridiculous questions will continue to mount.
- You’re finally dating someone consistently: When are you getting engaged?
- 2 seconds after your engagement: Have you set a date?
- You set a date. Get married and before you are pronounced man and wife: When are you going to have kids?
- You went out and partied the night before, a little hungover and have a upset stomach: Are you pregnant? When are you due?
- You’ve just given birth to your first precious angel (umbilical cord still attached): When are you going to have another baby?
See, it never ends!
