“Is he gonna put a ring on it?!”

Cosmopolitan (Philippines) - - Love -

“I know you ask be­cause you care, but I prom­ise you’ll be among the first 100 to know.”

Preface a straight­for­ward plea to butt-the­eff- out with an of­fer to keep a per­sis­tent won­derer (we’ll guess—it’s your mom) in­formed. It takes your ro­mance off the ta­ble yet main­tains a solid bond with the per­son ask­ing, says nel­son. Plus, your guar­an­tee helps make the per­son feel like they won’t be left in the dark.

“If I had a dol­lar for ev­ery time I was asked that, we could pay for the wed­ding!”

A mix of hu­mor and a not-so­sub­tle clue that this topic is ob­nox­ious al­lows you to vent your frus­tra­tion over ev­ery­one’s eye­balling your left hand. It’s also bet­ter than a quippy “Why don’t you ask him?” be­cause the per­son ac­tu­ally might!
