My (35M) gf (35F) tells her coworkers that we are cousins
My gf and I have been together for 6 years. She keeps hinting at wanting to get married and talking about what her wedding will be like someday.
So I’ve decided to take the hint. I bought an engagement ring a week ago and am planning to pop the question sometime soon.
Well, over the weekend she had a work function. This was the first time she’s invited me along. I’m not super outgoing, but I was kind of looking forward to meeting all these coworkers she talks about so much.
For some reason, every time we talked to someone, she introduced me as her “cousin”. I thought it was a joke at first, but she kept at the whole day.
When we were driving home I asked her what that was all about, and she said she “didn’t want people to have the wrong impression”.
When I asked what that meant, she said she didn’t want to talk about it anymore, and I shouldn’t be so upset. She then switched the conversation to her favorite TV show.
Why would she introduce me as her cousin? Should I insist on her telling me why she did that before I propose?
- Hope you kept the receipt for that ring. She’s most likely got someone at work that she likes.
- Tell her that since you two are now cousins in her eyes you will be returning the ring as you dont think it is right to marry your own cousin
- The only thing I can think of is her coworkers already met her BF and it wasn’t you.
