I went to a bridal shower this weekend — during which I was probed [in regards to someone I’ve been dating for a while] by a regular social acquaintance sitting across from me , “When is he going to put a ring on it?!”
My response was quick and playful, “Never, ever, ever.” 1. Because I’m sick of people asking when I’m getting married, and 2. It’s not their business if/when he plans on asking.
I got back a table full of stunned faces. You would have thought I’d told them prince charming wasn’t real. Who cares if I’m married or not? But they seemed reserved that something must be amiss because I wasn’t foaming at the mouth to take his incredibly difficult last name.
