Twoxxy has happened for the first time in my life. It probably has happened to most of you, and happens at different times for each person.

What is twoxxy?

H/A/M and H/A/F? Can we call them Ben and Emma?

Do you know Ben? If so, is he a friend of yours? fellow student? former classmate?
Same questions for Emma.

Were you there when they got engaged?

Did you play a special role in their engagement? Like, did you help Ben choose an engagement ring?

Are they the first couple among your friends to get engaged? Is Emma the first of your former classmetes to get engaged?

Anyone else relevant?

Relevant how you found out about their engagement? Relevant where they got engaged? Did he propose? Did she?

A few weeks ago I was enjoying a picknick at the Eiffel Tower with some friends when we suddenly noticed a guy kneeling down in front of a girl, getting a small box out of his pocket... and well, you know the rest (: Of course, all of us were like "Awwww!".

**********SPOILER**********

Twoxxy: When someone you know who's younger than you are gets engaged.

Nice solve Doriana.

Several friends from my years in high school and middle school have since gotten married, which seems kind of weird to think about, seeing as I feel nowhere near that point myself.

Some of my high school friends have been in stable relationships for three or four years now, they move in together, and sooner or later, they'll get engaged.
But I myself don't feel anywhere near that either. I find this whole "adult thing" still kind of weird, considering that a couple of years ago, we still had to ask our mums if we could sleep over at a friend's place. Tempus frigging fugit.
