    Engagement can be a bit like romantic purgatory for some, but at least you get to test drive a ring.

    Even Nothing Has Calories

    | Omaha, NE, USA | Engaged

    Fiancé: “You should whisper sweet nothings in my ear.”

    Me: “Chocolate nothing, vanilla nothing, caramel nothing…”

    Don’t Have Dessert Too URL-y

    | Davie, FL, USA | Engaged

    (I am chatting online with my fiancé about buying stairs or a ramp for our elderly dog so he can get onto our bed. I send him a couple of URLs which include the word “chocolate” as a color descriptor and the weight that they support.)

    Fiancé: “Those URLs sound a lot more tasty than their actual contents. I wanted hundreds of pounds of chocolate.”

    Don’t Forget To Read The Period

    | Tampa, FL, USA | Engaged

    (My fiancé and I are each on our computers and we’re scrolling through Craigslist looking for furniture. He has a bad habit of not reading a whole word and just guessing what something is based on the letters.)

    Fiancé: “Free tampons!”

    Me: “What?!”

    Fiancé: “Oh, that says trampoline…”

    Me: “…”

    Adding Some Spice To Their Cheesy Romance

    | Mesa, AZ, USA | Engaged

    (My fiancé and I are lying in bed after I get our son to sleep. I nuzzle up to him, getting a little handsy when I notice a packet of something under his butt. I pull it out wondering why he has a condom (we no longer need them), when I find it’s a packet of crushed red pepper.)

    Me: “Trying to spice things up?”

    Fiancé: “Yeah! I figured, they have the hot and cold stuff, so why not even hotter?”

    Me: “Hon, BURNING is usually a bad thing. But seriously, what is this doing in here?”

    Fiancé: “I have no idea.”

    Me: “I thought it was a condom, but I was confused since we don’t need any. Unless you were cheating on me while I wasn’t home today.”

    Fiancé: “Right, when our son had barely fallen asleep before you got home, I had SO much time.”

    Me: *laughing* “I know. Still, what the heck? And where’s the parmesan packet?”

    Fiancé: “Dessert?”

    Me: “Right. I’d like to see that.”

    Fiancé: “Challenge accepted.”

    Romance Can Catch You With Your Pants Down

    | NY, USA | Engaged

    (While very loving, my fiancé is not known for grand romantic gestures. Therefore, it’s a surprise when he grabs my wrist as I pass by with the laundry and looks sincerely into my eyes.)

    Fiancé: “Thank you. Thank you for everything you do for me. Thank you for enriching my life. Thank you. Thank you for loving me.”

    Me: “Aw!” *pause* “That’d be so much sweeter if you’d been wearing pants!”
