-You know you have been waiting too long when… your friends are having engagement dreams about you.
Funny how most of us have the exact same thoughts and similar situations happen to us.
pmsl love it when your son, cat and the dog has last name and you bloody dont!!!!
Here’s one that just happened to me…The cashier at the grocery store asked how long the bf and I have been married and the bf says “oh we aren’t…but we’ve lived together for 3 years”. The cashier was like “whats the deal?!” and when we were leaving he tells me “don’t let him wait too long!” It was at that point I knew I’ve been waiting too long haha.
How about this one–when you go to Red Lobster with your SO, in normal clothes (jeans, cute t-shirt, not much makeup) on a Sunday night and the waitress asks if you are celebrating anything tonight. Do we just have that look to us or what??!! (and yes, I WISH we had been celebrating something….)
When you have a dream of the proposal, crying and all, then wake up looking at your ring finger and it’s empty!! It takes all my energy not to kick him out of the bed while he’s so content!!
“Waiting longer than you originally expected; 30% of your hope. Seeing those around you getting what they want; 90% of your jelousy. Finally getting the ring and proposal you’ve always dreamed of… priceless”
There are some things not worth waiting for. On your proposal day, its all well worth the wait!
Trust me, we don’t enjoy making you wait any longer than needed. In fact I base my whole life around one rule: “A happy Miss Coffee equals a happy Mr Coffee”. It’s a very stressfull time for the man to… finding, buying, planning, and preparing for your proposal day. As for me, I made Miss Coffee wait a very long time before placing that ring on her finger. However, once that ring is one… all that stress, worry, and doubt washes away.
When the priest asks you and your man after mass on Sunday if you’ve set a wedding date yet, and you have to flash your naked, un-ringed hand to convince him that you REALLY aren’t engaged yet.
Happened this weekend…sigh…
When everytime your bf says “How come?” or “Why not?” you respond by sticking your empty ring finger in his face….regardless of the question.
Him: “Why didn’t you remind me to call so-and-so back?”
Me: (see picture)
“Bad man. He’s so mean. Meanest man I’ve ever known. He’s such a bad man. Doesn’t even give her flowers for her anniversary. And no present. And he stole her last two dollars. He probably doesn’t even like her. He probably hates her. Probably just lives with her because he likes her cooking. He’s probably just waiting and then one day he’s going to steal the puppies and make off with them and she’ll be all alone and sad. Probably won’t ever marry her. Nope, doesn’t want to. She’s going to have an empty, naked finger forever and ever and ever. Because he’s a bad man.”
I tend to say it all pretty quickly and usually i’m talking to one of the dogs but we’re sitting next to each other on the sofa. He usually cracks up about two sentences in but I always do my best to keep my grumbling up until I hit on all points, culminating at the lack of ring issue.
I’m also giving him the stink eye a few times a day and questioning what came in the mail, what’s in his pocket, and threatening to check his sock drawer. He sees my stink eye and cracks up. I realize I’m pretty comical about it all and it’s all very light hearted. But really, I think Mr. Artichokey prefers to laugh at me more than anything. Bad man. Laughing at my expense. I feel another grumble coming on.
– Random people assume you are married… to the point of randomly writing your last name as YourName-HisName. Yeah, everything I get from the gym has his last name. I will really need to hide the gym coupons when my grandparents visit…
– You have agreed on all your future kids’ names.
– Your parents have stopped harassing you about when you’ll get married, and are even bringing your grandparents out to visit you.
– Your grandma has accepted that you are living with your boyfriend, despite being the first person in family history to do so.
