first off, forgive me if I've asked this before, but here's my story.
My DH and I hit of off right away after it was clear we both liked each other. He introduced himself and I told him he was cute.
I found out later why so many women he knew were angry once they heard of me and our fast engagement. They were 'playing it cool' with him and taking the right steps since he was coming out of a engagement.
I guess playing it cool wasn't my style.
during our engagement there was a woman who he'd run into from time to time and she'd chat with him. Fine. Happens a lot in our activities.
Apparently the fact that was engaged never came up, because a few weeks after we were married I approached her about getting a outfit that she'd been making for him so I could finish it. She asked me why, and I pointed out as nicely as I could that he'd waited over two years for it and would like to wear it. She got cocky about it, like I was overstepping my bounds.
then came the question I and observers were waiting for.
"Just who do you think you ARE exactly? "
she laughed, then some mutual fiends pulled her aside and explained to her that in the months that she had not spoken to DH he had indeed married me.
She lived far away and didn't see him much.
Some others thought I'd get mad at her, but it's hard to get mad at a grown woman crying over someone that she wanted to court.
I asked mutual friends if he'd ever even dated her and they all said that he had not!
I asked DH about it and he insists to this day that she had never expressed interest in him, that they made the agreement for the outfit, but other than that it was just friendly talk here and there.
Who thinks it best to hide your interests or to just go for it?
I think maybe I'd rather feel silly from expressing non returned interests than be the one crying over a guy I'd missed my chance with.
