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

    Own Your Anxiety

    | MI, USA | Engaged

    (My fiancé and I are chatting on Facebook, when I mention that my anxiety issues are making it difficult to apply for grad school. Note that we are both fans of ‘Doctor Who.’)

    Fiancé: “Fear is a super power, you know.”

    Me: “Yeah, against a monster that’s probably completely made up.”

    Fiancé: “…”

    Me: “Oh, crap. That’s basically what my anxiety disorder is.”

    Fiancé: *winks*

    Me: “I just owned myself.”

    Road Ragey-Wagey

    | Baltimore, MD, USA | Engaged

    (I am driving and my fiancé is a passenger in my car. As we are about to merge onto the expressway, another car cuts us off. It should be noted that I generally don’t swear.)

    Me: *to the driver who cut me off* “You butthead fartface poop!”

    Fiancé: “Wow, [My Name], that’s some strong language there!”

    My Loving Fiancé Is A Complete Oxymoron

    | AB,Canada | Engaged

    (My fiancé and I are eating dinner. I have just found out that he doesn’t like butternut squash and I do.)

    Me: *jokingly-overdramatic* “And here, all along, I thought we were exactly the same.”

    Fiancé: “Oh please, if anything we are exact opposites. You’re even a vegetarian!”

    Me: *pouty face*

    Fiancé: *giving in* “Okay, okay. We are half alike!”

    Me: “Half alike? Is that some sort of metaphor? Hmp, I thought we were a simile!”

    Fiancé: *deadpan* “Honey, we’re a joke.”

    This Back To Front Conversation Came From Left Field

    | CA, USA | Engaged

    (My fiancée has just come home for her lunch break. I am not scheduled for work, so I am doing my laundry. This exchange happens when I am about to pull my stuff out of the dryer.)

    Me: “Okay, I’ll be right back.”

    Fiancée: “All right. I’ll be left front.”

    Me: “…Wait, what?”

    Fiancée: *giggling* “I said, I’ll be left front.”

    Me: “…Left front?”

    Fiancée: “Yep!”

    Me: *laughing* “You know, I don’t take kindly to you left front types.”

    Fiancée: “Oh, c’mon! You said you’d be right back, so I had to be something!”

    Me: “Fine, then. I’ll also be ambidextrous in between.”

    Fiancée: “Okay, then I’m also illegible on top!”

    Maybe It’s Maybe

    | CA, USA | Engaged

    (My fiancée and I are on our respective computers when I suddenly hear her humming. Recognizing the song, I turn to look at her.)

    Me: “Were you just humming Maybe from Annie?”

    Fiancée: “…maybe.”

    (She swore that she had not thought of the joke beforehand.)
