If you're dating and you have a job, don't think that you're exempt from the line of questioning at Thanksgiving — getting engaged is of course the next one! Some women enjoy just dating their significant other, but if you're actually waiting for a ring yourself, this question could hit a nerve. To see my suggestions on how to answer tough question number three, just
- If you're simply not ready to take that next step in your relationship, tell whoever is asking that you're just enjoying being together for now. Reiterate that you're not in a rush to get hitched and hopefully they'll back off.
- Blame your youth. Tell them you feel too young and don't feel the need to be married just yet.
- If you are ready for an engagement yourself, take a cheeky approach and say something like, "I've been asking myself the same question" or "I'm not sure, but if you find out when, let me know!" If you take the pressure off with humor, it'll make talking about it a lot easier.
If you're in a similar boat this year, tell us, how do you plan on answering this tough question?
