A bride has been absolutely blindsided by her fiancé’s cutting remark more than seven months into her wedding planning.
Turning to Facebook for advice, the woman explained that she and her husband-to-be got engaged nine months ago. Or so she thought.

“Nine months ago, my (what I thought was) fiancé asked me to marry him,” she wrote.
“He didn’t have a ring so I assumed it was a spur of the moment decision, but I am a chill woman. I understood the ring will come later and all that matters is we have each other.”
Though most people propose with a ring, it’s not unheard of for couples to pick out a ring after getting engaged, or skipping the engagement ring and opting just to buy wedding bands.
Thinking that she was very much engaged, the bride got to work planning her “dream wedding” and has spent the last seven months going over the details.
Deciding to tackle one of the biggest bridal purchases recently, she told her future husband that she planned to go shopping for a wedding dress.
Which is when everything apparently went to hell in a handbasket.
“When I told him I was going dress shopping he looked at me like I had five heads,” the bride said.
Now her not-fiancé is claiming that he “never proposed” to her, and ended the conversation with a horrifying remark.
“Why would I propose to a woman I’m not even dating?” he allegedly asked her.
Surprisingly, the bride didn’t seem concerned by his rejection, and instead plans to trick him into coming to “their” wedding to see what happens.

The shocking Facebook post was then shared to Reddit, where opinions were deeply divided.
Many wondered how the bride had gotten the signals so wrong, suggesting that she had to be “delusional” or “out of her mind” to have wound up in the predicament she’s in.
Some pointed at her plan to “trick” the man into attending the wedding she planned as a sign of deeper issues.
But others said the blame lies with the woman’s partner for “backtracking” on the proposal.
“Don’t tell me you’ve never met a guy who sees a girl for months and months, introduces her to his family, friends etc but when it comes down to it, [he says] ‘It’s not that serious, and you’re crazy for thinking it is’,” one person wrote.
More than anything though, people wanted more information about the many questions the post raised.

Like how did the man “propose”? And how did he not notice the ‘bride’ planning a wedding for seven months? And why did he now claim they’re not even dating?
Some users even claimed that there was no way the story could be real, given how absurd the situation was.
However, a select few claimed they’d seen situations just like this one play out in real life.
“I’ve had friends in their 30s that have thought that they were exclusive with someone for months, including getting fucked up blackout drunk and one ‘proposing’ to the other in the ‘spur of the moment’,” one person said.
Unfortunately, they also said that situations like this almost always end badly.
