    It feels so surreal, why is it when you say the word 'engaged' it's alright, but if it's about you it feels super weird?

    To get to the point, I thought I would share with you good folk who have inadvertently provided me with lots of useful IT advice during my time at these forums with the news that I proposed to my girlfriend yesterday.

    Thankfully she said YES! but mercifully I am even more thankful you only do it once (hopefully) in your life. What a nerve wracking experience! I'm sure many of the users on this forum have been through similar experiences. I was breaking out in cold sweats all last night!

    Anyway, off to enjoy the long weekend now with an engagement party later today. :)

    Congrats you :)

    I don't know the stress you went through - I do know it took me around 3 years to convince my other half to propose!

    I hope you have many happy years together :) :hug

    Congratulations mate.

    Know what a defining moment in my life was?

    Not first girlfriend.
    Not getting engaged.
    Not getting married.
    Probably not even the birth of our son.

    It was the moment I heard him say to someone 'that's my dad'.
    Never felt anything like it.

    So you've got plenty of joy ahead of you.
    Make the most of it!

    :biggrin

    It'll feel weirder being called "husband". Major congrats!

    Hearing my oldest boy call me "Daddy" for the first time has got to be in my all-time favorite moments. :biggrin

    Thanks a million everyone! It still feels surreal, has most definitely not sunk in yet. It probably won't even when I'm waiting at the altar!

    Super weird stuff; nerve wracking but such a good feeling at the same time! :)
