No, not me!
I got a phone call from Maybe in England yesterday. Despite the disaster of our meeting last year, and my subsequent broken heart, we have kept in touch. He quickly brought me up to date, telling me that he and his new girlfriend (of 2 months) have gotten engaged.
You could've knocked me down with a feather.
As I listened to him though, I started to wonder where his head - or for that matter his heart - is at. He said that they decided to get engaged on a whim. A case of "why not!"
I guess there was nothing on tv that night. [miaow]
He even admitted that they are still finding out about each other, still learning (not that learning about your partner in a relationship ever ends, I hasten to add). They figured they would get engaged...whilst they decided if they want to get married. Thankfully they have decided to hold off on any upcoming nuptials, until he is finally out of the army in the next 5 years and until her children are finished school. A lot can happen in 5-plus years.
This is his 3rd engagement - hopefully 3rd time will be a charm. I truly wish them well, although even the romantic in me is skeptical.
And me? Yes, there was a brief wave of wistful self-pity - but in truth I am soooooo over him!
