I've had a wonderful relationship with this girl, but I guess all good things must come to an end. It would seem over the past few weeks, I did some mistakes, and, little by little, she stopped considering herself as my girlfriend.
The biggest mistake was probably when I bought that ring. I was crazy enough to offer it to her, and she was crazy enough to accept it.
Anyway, she ceased being my girlfriend last Sunday when we got formally engaged. So, as another crazy Elbonian put it a couple of years ago, my girlfriend is now my fiancee.
Which means in a few months, we shall (les Eaux) be dutifully and legally (and, since I am a right winged Catholic bigot, religioulsy) married.
