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

And I Am The Egg-Man

| NC, USA | Engaged

(My fiancé and I are drinking on a Friday night. He puts a pair of chopsticks in his mouth.)

Me: *takes the chopsticks from his mouth* “You’re drunk and that is a bad idea.”

Fiancé: *heartbroken* “But… I’m a walrus…”

That Joke Landed On Its Feet

| Sweden | Boyfriend/Girlfriend, Engaged, Punny

(I am known for always freezing. Even in summer I’ll often wear a sweater and during winter I absolutely have to have extra fluffy socks or slippers. I have several pairs that I usually rotate so only one is out, but lately I’ve been a bit sloppy. We have, albeit jokingly, talked about getting married before.)

Boyfriend: *thoughtfully* “You know, there’s a reason I can’t marry you.”

Me: “Um…?”

Boyfriend: “Because I know you’ll get cold feet.” *points at a pile of my socks and slippers with a proud grin*

An Undesirable Train Of Thought

| WA, USA | Engaged

(I am a woman with intimacy-related health issues, engaged to a trans woman. My fiancée and I are talking about the problems that marginalized people have in dating when I have a thought.)

Me: “I’m so glad that we have found each other.”

Fiancée: “I am glad, too. We’re basically undesirable to most people, but we are good together.”

Me: “That word undesirable is pinging something in my head. Oh, what am I thinking of?”

Fiancée: “The untouchables in India’s caste system?”

Me: “I don’t think so. Never mind.”

Fiancée: “Maybe you’re thinking about how Nazis called the people they killed ‘undesirable’?”

Me: “I hope my brain isn’t making a connection between our relationship and Nazis!”

(And we had been having such a good time until my brain did that.)

It Lives…

| Bradford, England, UK | Engaged

(My fiancé has just bought a lava lamp, much to my fascination. We’re currently snuggling in bed after watching a film and our conversation turns to the lava lamp.)

Fiancé: “That’s a big blob that’s just formed.”

Me: “A very slow blob!”

Fiancé: “That’s because it’s a big blob.”

(The blob sinks to the bottom and a tiny blob forms and shoots upwards.)

Me: *in a creepy voice* “It just gave birrrrthh…”

Warrior Romance

| Gauteng, South Africa | Engaged

(My fiancé and I are cuddling after eating takeaway. I’ve never burped in front of him before.)


Fiancé: *surprised look* “What was that?”

Me: “It’s Klingon for ‘I love you.’”

Fiancé: “Awww, I love you, too.”
