Let's hope I don't chicken out and take them out before she comes home
Once again thanks for the words of encouragement especially louise p and guest37. I couldn't have done it without your nice comments and words of encouragement.
Great! Glad you did it....now just keep them in! Today was day two at work, and word is spreading throughout the workplace. I still am excited and glad that I went through with it, just wish I would have done it years ago. Hind sight is 20/20.....knowing what I know now, I would have taken the plunge many years ago.
I hope your wife likes it and chooses to support you in your decision...it is a wonderful feeling. As I was trying to make up my mind to go through with it, I read many different posts, polls, etc. regarding men with pierced ears. This forum has been the most informative and supportive in regards of this topic. As I searched the forums, I found a comment I think I will use as a comeback to those who say....."You know what it means when a man pierces his ear?"........."It means he is better prepared for marriage...he has experienced pain and bought jewelry."
I am glad I have been able to be an encouragement to you....it's the least I could do since louise P was such an encouragement to me. Please let us know how things go......and remember how happy you feel and let this feeling be the driving force behind your decision.
