Me: Hey Jim- How was the weekend?
Jim: Great – I got engaged!
Me: What? To that woman you split up with a few months ago?
Jim: Yeah – that’s right.
Me: So what happened?
Jim: Well I found out the reason she was so crazy when we were living together was that she thought I wasn’t committed to the relationship.
Me: Uh, yeah, that makes ….. uh ….. sense.
Jim: That’s right. So when I proposed she realized I was committed.
Me: Wow – that’s great. How long were you guys dating?
Jim: 9 years
Me: Man – I can’t see why she didn’t think you were committed – dating someone for 9 years sounds like commitment to me.
