Today, my boyfriend took me on a surprise date to an expensive restaurant. After the meal, he got down on his knee and proposed. We've only been dating for two weeks, so I said no. He just silently kept staring me in the eyes, no matter what I said or did. I ended up having to walk home. FML

Hell, if he was going to ask you to marry him after two weeks, he should've just taken you to Vegas, gotten you really plastered, and found a wedding chapel to perform an elopement ceremony.

I can actually kind of see someone getting married after only 2 weeks.. it gives a lot of room to get to know each other and can build both partners compromising skills. The guy is probably just really excited to settle down and found a girl that he'd really like to spend time getting to know.
It really comes down to a culture thing. Its weird here in North America to settle down after that short of time but countries with arranged marriages or marriages that you decide to do after a few weeks have a significantly smaller divorce rate. I personally would never do it but for some people it works very well :p

Has anyone ever thought that just because they've been dating for only two weeks she didn't know him before that? I'm sorry but usually I know the person for a while before I date them.

Somtimes, rarely, it can glitch and post a comment twice even though it was submitted once
Or not show up at first, prompting the person to believe it didnt go through and post it again

^^^because I'm not writing an essay and it is much easier then saying that I am annotating something. So I used quotes to illustrate my point. Sue me?


Two weeks is ridiculous. But if you're dating someone for 2 years before you ask them, I don't think you really want to marry them. I think you're settling for someone you got comfortable with and don't want to start over. Maybe not in all cases this is true, but just look at divorce rates.

Well anorexicbarbie, you ARE a grammar Nazi. But it won't seem out of place on FML anymore, because tomorrow is the day snickerdoodles is allowed back on FML (I confirmed that today.)

... fuck.

Hey guys, English is not my first language, but according to what my boyfriend (native English speaker) says, my grammar is better than most of the language carriers. My question is: do those people really not know how to spell "you're" or they just do it on purpose? It's even pronounced in a different way, isn't it?

I would say yes but "takes out troublingly long list" hair loss, incontinence, erectile dysfunction, snoring, bad breath, bad teeth, premature ejaculation, uneven butt cheeks, hairy ahole, stinky feet/disgusting toe nails, bad taste in music, and creepy beedy eyes.


Maybe she tried explaining to him why while he stared at her. In situations like that I ran the other way. My 10th grade boyfriend went over the top and we were only together for 4 months.
My monthly anniversary gifts were: 1st month - a dog tag engraved with our initials on one side and our faces on the back, 2nd month was a necklace with a heart, 3rd month/Valentines day a book called 101 reasons Why I Love You, hand written, complete with badly drawn illustrations. and a month later, I couldn't really handle that much "love" from a guy I barely knew.
