My fiancé and I were actually only together 3 1/2 weeks when he popped the question. We just celebrated our three year anniversary last week. It was totally a mutual thing though. A guy should NEVER propose to his girl without discussing it first to make sure she's on the same page.
Everything #29 wrote, and the subsequent thumbs-down-spamming is accurate enough proof of the absurd expectations people have these days. If marriage isn't a mutual, openly addressed desire for both parties- goooooood luck with it working out. I sincerely hope the pheromones are *precisely* in sync. If what I'm conveying strips the magic from 'just knowing' or 'feels so right', then hormones, the modern media's joke, or both... is on you. Because anything else is simply expectation or presumption, merrily misinterpreting the reality of who or what, that someone really is. Don't get me wrong; there are *always* exceptions and presumably a fair enough love-at-first-sight-soul-mates-forever quantity of couples to viably discredit my statement as universal statistical truth... but direct, faithful communication between two people *is* the magic that allows fantasies to become reality. Yuck to all your thumbs down. ...yuck.
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
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.
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'm sorry, but maybe you could have said it nicer, or tried explaining why you said no
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.
U had good reason to say no, but u should have told him why u said no...
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.
