Confessions Of A Procrastinator

By Ling

A procrastinator is defined as someone who postpones work (especially out of laziness or habitual carelessness)

After I had revealed that I had accidentally found the business card of a diamond jeweller’s, I don’t think the proposal came as a surprise to any of you.  All our family and friends were happy and excited when they found out the good news.    But what amused me was the different ways in how males and females reacted to the news.  (The different perspectives between males and females have always intrigued me – remember this?)

If you are male, this is what you probably said to me (in order) :-

1.  ”Congratulations!”
2.  ”Have you set a date?”

And then that’s it.  The male population are generally not as excited like the female population.

If you are female, this is probably what happened (in order) :-

1.  Squeal!!!
2.  ”Congratulations!” (with a hug)
3.  ”Let me see the ring!  Aaaawww!”
4.  ”When are you getting married?”
5.  ”How did he propose?”

Yes, females are generally more excited about weddings.

What does it mean?

1.  Do males secretly want to know the lovey dovey details of the proposal and wedding plans?  But are they too scared to ask in case it instigates questions about their sexuality?
2.  Are there females out there who don’t enjoy wedding talk?  But if a female doesn’t express any interest in a friend’s forthcoming nuptials, does it mean that they are secretly jealous?

Yes, I, Ling Tung, aged 20-something, would like to confess.  Instead of wedding planning, I procrastinate and occupy my mind with these thoughts.  I am a procrastinator.  Did I mention that we are getting legally wed in 2 months?  (NO, I AM NOT WITH CHILD!)

    I think girls are more about knowing the details, where guy aren’t. Girls want to know about the ring, the proposal, the plans for the wedding etc, when guys just want to say congratulations and when’s it all happening?

    Congratulations. Let me see the ring! ;)

    It’s it bad that I was more in the female question camp than the male camp when I heard the news?

    I think I am just more in touch with my femanine side.
