Basically I am seeing someone. Everything is going fine - distance is an issue but were ok about that.
Recently I got a marriage proposal. One of those random family set up things. His mom contacted my aunt and apparently he saw me in a wedding and asked about me blah blah blah. Except that is not the story at all.
Now the family is putting pressure on me to accept and I am refusing. When they mentioned the name and they saw my reaction, they are now insisting that I give them a reason. I cannot tell them what the reason is since it involves another family friend and basically this guy was her bf for a long time and as far as I know she still loves him.
I have this policy that basically the people off limits are an ex's friends and a friend's exes.
Anyways so my current beau, despite the fact that I am very attached to him is not the reason I am rejecting this person. If it was someone else, I would have considered it.
So this is not the first proposal I got this way but this is the first time that I am getting A LOT of pressure to accept. Usually by this time, the issue would have been over and not mentioned again and everything gone back to normal. Now Im getting the whole "you are 28 oo bit3ansy" speeches.
Should I tell the beau about this issue?? Please comment with your opinions and elaborate your points. I really need to see different sides of the issue that I may be missing. Generally what I have gotten from my friends is basically the single ones in my age group say no dont tell and the younger age group and the married friends are telling me that I should.
- Yes because we are supposed to be sharing everything and he should know that something this big is happening in my life
- No because I dont want him to think its one of those games that girls play to put pressure on them to propose to them (7arakat ga3da agoolik 3ashan min sibaq libaq)
