Symbols of everlasting love

Welcome to paradise

24 months. Or in banking terms, two years. This has been the most-exciting two years of your life because you are engaged to not "one of," but "the" most gorgeous, Vogue modelisque, smokin' hot chick in creation.

This girl laughs at every joke you tell, her blue eyes when she makes eye-contact with you causes you to instantly grow nervous. She is all a guy could ask for in a female. Charming, sexy, alluring, intelligent, supportive, sensitive and so beautiful it's scary and soon, although you believe it to be a dream, you and her are going to jump into the eternal circle of holy matrimony and be man and wife.

The dates, honestly, there is no description besides "pure fantasy." You pick her up at 8 p.m. three times a week. And every date just increases in hot, intimate love leaving you with a dizzy head and dry throat when you let her out at date's end. What could be better? You think to yourself as you drive home.

Look! See the tear on the guy's cheek? That is a definite-sign that his now-"ex" has called off their engagement

Take it easy, man

As the engagement nears its end, it's subtle at first. You hardly notice it. Those minuscule things that she is now doing that mildly tests your trust in her and causes you to have worries and concerns to whether or not this marriage is ever going to get off the ground.

It's okay, fella. You are just experiencing

Her Dead Give-Aways That Signal This Engagement is Soon to be History

  • When you and her are having intimate talk, she seems to be deep in thought about something (or someone) else.
  • She cries a lot for no apparent reason. You credit her hormones and PMS for this strange behavior.
  • Sometimes when you take her home, she has to take "this one" cell phone call and tells you, "Babe, it's not anything personal. Just a personal thing." And this comes after one of those good tell-all talks and you and her agree to not keep anything from between you.
  • Normally, you and her will talk almost every night, but recently she has got to putting her phone to voicemail.
  • Out of your spontaneous nature, you pop-in at her place to surprise her and when you drive-up, there is this mysterious-looking man acting nervous as he slides into his Porshe and drives off. You mention seeing him to her and she instantly grows tense.
  • No matter when you eat, she just stares at the plate and picks at her food.
  • She has lost a serious amount of weight. What's weird is that her doctor told her at her last check-up
    "to start gaining some pounds to help build iron in her blood."
  • You keep a mental record of the times recently when you pick her up for a date and she isn't ready like she used to be. She slowly walks from her bedroom with hair not brushed and still in her robe and pajamas and sporting this "oh, it's you," look on her face.
  • When you cannot cope anymore, you ask her, "Is something wrong?" "With what?" she asks nonshalauntly. "Our engagement," you reply. "Oh, that. Naaah. Don't think so," she says as she looks out the window yawning.
  • You do not have the stomach to tell her how she has changed. And that in itself is a danger signal that the engagement is going to blow-up because not too long ago, you could tell her anything and it be cool. Now now. She just reacts in angry outbursts and says, "We don't need to talk about that.'
  • And "the" most-obvious sign that the engagement is nearing an end is . . .
  • You are talking to her and notice she sounds like her old self. You ask if you can drop by. She laughs like she did when you first met her and says yes. You cannot wait. You are excited. Upon parking in front of her house, you hurry to her front door. You almost break her doorbell at how long you keep ringing it. Finally you peep inside and there is no furniture to be seen. No pictures on the wall. No area rugs. She has vanished.

But don't feel so bad. At least you will not plunge yourself into depths of dark depression for not knowing if she is the one for you or not.

      Dear Kiss and Tales,

      I know that thanking you is far from enough to show my appreciation to you for this lovely comment, but my dearest, it is all I have.

      Oh, I would love to see you in your wedding wardrobe. But I am indebted to you for reading this piece and leaving me such a sweet string of words.

      You made my night.
