Today, my boyfriend of 3 years finally proposed to me at the park we first met in. As I was about to say yes, a huge fly flew straight into my mouth. I ruined the moment by choking on it and eventually spitting it out on him. I think he's rethinking the proposal. FML

What I meant is that there's no explanation to do. She ate a fly. It's bad luck but it happens. You telling her to explain herself makes it sound like she needs to apologize or something. If he's reconsidering the proposal because of something that in no way was OP's fault, then screw him. Although I'm pretty sure that's not true. Maybe OP was being sarcastic or exaggerated his reaction because it's an FML.

Exactly. I'm sure he'll understand that she didn't do it purposely to mock him or anything. Accidents happen; that's not enough to make you rethink something like that.

Such a shame how often people attack an OP's boyfriend/girlfriend for imaginary situations brought up by OP themselves. Nothing in the FML says anything about OP's BF rethinking his proposal. OP is the only one who brings it up, so really shame on you OP.

Maybe he was just in the moment of realization that you choke on a fly so easily and when he thinks about if you choke when he puts his... Ah nevermind me, that just sucks... Yes it sucks. No? Ok I shall leave...


They're not poisonous yet they feed off people who are repulsed by them. The more you swat the more will come. The trick is to ignore them once you have mastered an Australian fly crawling on your eyeball you can acomplish anything.

I have camped around desert type areas and areas with grass and on mountains (in summer/spring). In I think all of those places there were many flies in the morning. Yes, I'm in Australia.

I can see how choking noises and being spit on after popping the question would be really off putting, but if he's been with you for three years, nothing more than a simple explanation should be needed.

Sharing saliva in a passionate moment is one thing, but to be spat on is another.

Can't say I would appreciate if my partner spat something on me, I'd be pretty disgusted.
