The NY Post is reporting that Michael Lohan is going to get engaged to his girlfriend of 10 months Erin Paige. After I read the article, I think an engagement is a long ways off, if ever. The couple was spotted in the last week looking at engagement rings and when asked about it, Michael said, "We're talking about getting engaged soon."
Every guy who reads that sentence knows that Michael is dragging this thing out to the bitter end. She is in her late 20's or early 30's and he is almost 50. She wants to get married and he would probably rather not after his last experience. She's ready for kids and he just wants to exploit the ones he already has. So, what do you do when she threatens to leave and your chances of getting anyone who looks as good and doesn't charge you by the hour are almost nil? You take her ring shopping and bring it up in conversation. You tell the NY Post that you are talking about getting engaged soon.
Who talks about getting engaged soon? You talk about when you might get married, but one doesn't normally discuss when the best time to get engaged would be. What does it matter when you get engaged? Even if she does manage to wheedle a ring out of Michael, she isn't going to get a wedding. Do you think that once Lindsay's career starts taking off again and he starts getting pocket money from her again that he is going to want to share half with a wife? Then you haven't met Mr. Greedy before.
My best advice to all women not just women who date asses like Michael is that if a guy says things like Michael has and is dragging it out and dragging it out, then you have to realize if it ever happens it is going to be a very long wait. Very long.
