I have news.

Posted 12-14-2012 at 04:58 AM by Ridg3
I got engaged last week, for all you who aren't on my Fartbake, to the bestest girl in the world. Down on one knee and everything. And even though I'm only the baby age of 21 I don't think I've jumped in too early seeing as we were together for about three years and have been living together for the past 6-7 months.

So far, though, a wedding is not on the cards... at least not for a verrry long time. For the time being it's a promise that I'm committed to her and only her for as long as that ring stays on her finger which is essentially already being married. But yeah, I'm happy, ecstatic even.

Not so happy that this is actually a very bad blog, though.

I knew about this news BEFORE it was blogged.



Great news though, man. Congrats on finding love.

Awesome, man.

Word of advice, though. Do not fall too hard into the whole "I asked and you have a ring and that's what matters" thing. If you put off the actual act for too long she will start to resent you for it. This is said from experience.

Yet most people I know who are/were engaged stayed so for five or six years. Women are strange.

I thought you were going to say you were pregnant or something. I wasn't far wrong.

Congrats, faggot. Is Anthony your best man?

Also, I hope you didn't spend too much on that ring. That's the one marital tradition I will contest until I die.

Because you're cheap?

Congrats, I was gonna say congrats on FB but I'm lazy. Sorry. Many happy returns or something.

Cheap? "Broke" is a better word.

And that's the rub. I don't like tradition that encourages the notion that love is measured by money or material. I'm not a huge fan of the jewelry industry either, but that's an entirely different conversation.

Keep us updated on your nuptials, dude.

I agree with Sekto. All you need is something that represents the mutual love between you and your partner, and you don't need a $500 piece of metal/rock/whatever to do that.

Mine's gonna be a bendy straw.



probably not

$500? The average cost of a diamond engagement ring is roughly ten times that.

Let's not discuss this anymore though. I don't want to gum up Ridg3's blog.

Yeah, well the idea of a diamond ring being a necessity is just too ridiculous for me to comprehend.


Hope your engagement was great though, Ridg3!

I guess this also means that OANST isn't the only one on the forum that has had sex now.

Actually, I think this is one video game forum where most of the cardinal members have had sex in some form at least once.

Everyone give yourselves a pat on the back!

I think that's probably not true. Let's say more like 15 percent. Still, that's pretty high.

Actually, come to think of it, I'm subconsciously counting several people that don't post anymore.

So you're probably right.

I dunno, I think it's probably like...almost half, in reality. Who knows...let's have a poll.

Yes. Also. What constitutes fucking? Is tonguing and fingering and shit included? Or just good 'ole in-out in-out.

Tonguing and fingering is not fucking. Fucking is fucking. I'm inclined to rule out oral sex as well, but that would be unfair.

As for "shit". Well, that's a whole different matter...

I think sex goes beyond the act, it has a lot to do with the intimacy and passion and all that bollocks as well. To suggest that penis+vagina=sex seems a bit close minded. That being said I'm of a similar mind set.

I said "fucking", not sex.
"Sex" is a broader term and everyone has their own idea of what it constitutes. "Fucking" I feel specifically refers to - as STM put it - the good 'ole in-out.

You don't say "I fucked her" if she gave you a blowjob, but you can get away with saying it if you thrust your dick in and out of her mouth. Even then, a prefix is often expected (head-fucking, throat-fucking, face-fucking, etc.)

I'm his best man in spirit.

I'm content with shagging one of the bridesmaids, though.
