I'm sorry for what happened. I'm assuming she rejected the proposal? Don't kick yourself for it, as she could have said yes to make you not feel bad and then resented you for it, making you live in a lie of a relationship and waste these past two years! For others, or for next time, most couples talk about marriage prior to the proposal. Marriage should never be a surprise, but the way you propose can be! It's a huge commitment, both of you need to be on the same page! Good luck OP. Take it e

He used 'still' when he considered himself single, which would imply it never went through and it turned out awful. If he said just 'single', it would imply they were together up until recently, as she was awful throughout the relationship of being engaged/married.

...You do know what a proposal is, right? Proposing while you're single is not something normal, sane people do... (and if OP did then this FML becomes a YDI) The "still" simply implies that OP hasn't had another relationship since this one.

It is also assumed they were dating, as you said, because most people are not single when they do. His proposal went awry, and they split at that moment. It's pretty straightforward, and I'm not entirely sure why you are trying to explain what you have so far.

Remember, the FML occurred two years ago. The "still single" part refers to the present day. This implies that the proposal was rejected and the relationship ended two years ago. Thus, every year on day light savings he has an extra hour and this constant reminder of how awful she and he has been single since the proposal.

Technically given the context of the sentence (or lack thereof), the "how awful she was" with no other description of what she was awful about would mean sexually.

Stop wallowing in your own self pity. It serves no purpose and will only drag you further down. Go, have a shit, shower and shave, spruce yourself up a bit and go and find that girl who's just been waiting for you.

It depends on where in the world you are. Europe, and maybe other places too, did the time change last weekend.
