BrideZilla: ‘Tis the season for weddings and BrideZilla, the campy, but addictive show on WeTV, now in it’s sixth season, has handy tips on how to tell if your finance has the proverbial cold feet.
Six Real Signs Of Cold Feet
1). He keeps postponing the wedding date. Or refuses to set one. If you set a date, put a deposit down, and the groom-to-be suddenly prefers fall to summer (and then winter to fall), his feet likely feel the nip from the nuptial north wind.
2.) He clings to bachelorhood. Everyone is sentimental for their single days. But if you see him gently stroking a shot glass with tears in his eyes, something is up. The transition from a wild bachelorhood to contemplative cuddles on the couch can be difficult, but shouldn't send him into convulsions. Look out if he's spending way more nights at singles' clubs and less date nights with you.
3.) He constantly references an ex. Being friends with an ex is acceptable, as long as she's part of the scenery and you're center stage. Constantly comparing her to you or making references to their long-ago love affair is not acceptable. Marriage jitters are normal. But you shouldn't worry you're marrying the wrong person.
4.) He's not involved at all. Bridezillas are perfection-seeking, anal-retentive ladies that would rather perish than let someone else (including their grooms) plan their weddings. Regardless, your fiance should respond to your task delegation. If he blatantly refuses to address invitations, rent a tux, or go cake tasting, he may have cold feet. Or he may just be lazy.
5.) He has night terrors about marriage. The thought of a lifelong commitment is daunting, especially as the wedding day grows near. But if he's popping Xanax to subdue his ever-growing anxiety and waking up in cold sweats because of nuptial nightmares, a heart-to-heart is in order.
6.) He can't snip the apron strings It's typical to be somewhat sad about "leaving the family," but he should be ready to snip the apron strings. If he demands that his mom live in the marital abode or requests a daily visit home, he has an incurable case of frigid feet. And he's a major momma's boy!
