This Is Not a Love Story

 
It was one of those so-real-you-feel-like-you-didn't-sleep dreams. In this dream, I woke up and The GF was nowhere in sight. Now, I'm not one of those dainty princess types--I guarantee you I'd be the last one to notice if there was a pea in our bed...but normally, when she gets up, it wakes me. Usually though, when she gets up, it's in the middle of the night, not bright and early in the morning, with sunlight streaming in our windows like it was in my dream-morning. 

This is highly unusual, as she sleeps like a hibernating bear, and is almost never awake before me. I can only think of two or three occurrences in our entire relationship.

Anyway, she wasn't in the room, so I stretched, rolled around (looking for my phone to check the time--and decide if I would get out of bed...or linger). About the time I found the phone and concluded it wasn't "daylight" enough to get out of bed on a Saturday, The GF arrived with a breakfast tray containing all her specialties: cheese omlettes, toast with cream cheese and strawberries, perfectly flavored coffee...mmm. (Now I'm hungry. Great.)

We eat. We laugh. She gives me one of her long, meaningful looks (that I am obviously NOT getting the meaning of...) and finally laughs and says, "This is worse than the washer thing."

(Of course, most of you readers have no idea what that means--don't worry, I'll tell you soon.)

I, of course, am still oblivious as to what she's laughing about--but thankfully, she didn't leave me hanging too long.

"Look at your left hand," dream-GF says. I do, and wouldn't you know--The Ring was on my finger. And then dream-GF got down on one knee and proposed. (Of course dream-me said yes.)

And then I woke up.
******************************

A few days later, when real life-GF was sleeping like a hibernating bear (like she's supposed to!) I slipped The Ring on her finger...and went on to work. I called her around lunch time, as usual. She didn't say anything about having The Ring.

A few hours later, I called her again during my afternoon break. She STILL didn't mention it. So, being an Aries woman, and therefore the most impatient person on the planet, I asked her if she'd noticed anything different about her hand.

And she freaked out. Not as romantic as the breakfast in bed on a lazy morning--so I'm not counting it as official. I am, however, using it as proof that she's just as oblivious as I am.

I just stumbled this, and I found it amusing, because that is the exact same way my fiancee proposed to me. We are getting married in 12 days. There was never an official "will you marry me" but we counted it as official!

Thank you for the story!

All the people who commented and didn't realize you're a girl....hahahaha, they clearly didn't read this story well enough. Lesbians, people, they are lesbians. But this was so sweet! <3 I LOVE love. :D I wish you well, my dears!

This story sucks.You are a lesbian, and probably a butch one at that. You should not be marrying. Homosexuality is wrong

Tyler, fuck off will you? Yes, she's a lesbian why should that even matter?

Also, I assume you're Christian. Jesus said nothing about homosexuality. Also, the bible even depicts a love story between King David and Jonathan. Also, Leviticus wasn't made for Christians to follow and you're a hypocrite if you pull that one out because Leviticus also states you should stone adulterers and that it's a sin to eat pork or shell fish. It also states that it's a sin to touch pig skin (football comes to mind), cut the edges of your beard, cut your hair, or wear clothes of multiple fabrics.

Oh, and if you're American... the Treaty of Tripoli Article 11 (written by Joel Barlow in 1796 and approved by John Adams) clearly states: As the Government of the United States of America is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion; as it has in itself no character of enmity against the laws, religion, or tranquillity, of Mussulmen; and, as the said States never entered into any war, or act of hostility against any Mahometan nation, it is declared by the parties, that no pretext arising from religious opinions, shall ever produce an interruption of the harmony existing between the two countries.

It is also unconstitutional to use religion as a basis of discriminatory laws. To deny us the right to marry is all together sexist as well as homophobic and unconstitutional as it goes against our Constitutional rights as well as the rights granted by previous Supreme Court cases.

Just stumbled in . If you fall in the middle of it and you read just this page it sounds like a lord of the rings type dream story. Glad that there was a link to the beginning. (I like that even better)

Wish you guys luck in Oklahoma. Rock on. And fuck the discussion. It seems that people can never just be happy for someone else anymore without someone else butting in and making an issue of it, even though it is no skin of their backs.

The ring is beautiful, by the way.

I will come back to read the-rest -of the-story.
