I want to preface this post by reiterating that my mother truly doesn't mean any malicious intent when she says these things. It's almost as if she's thinking aloud.
So, without any further ado, I present to you some interrogatives, advice and observations spoken by my mother over the years.
She's truly one of a kind:

X (identity shall remain anonymous) has been engaged three times and you can't manage to get engaged once.


Just try not to talk so much the next time you're out with a boy.

OR (this one she threw at me years ago as I was getting ready for to meet a boy, who is a FRIEND)

Have you talked to him about marriage yet?

Of course she means well. Just keep telling yourself that. I can imagine some dumb things I've said to my daughter that she'll blog about or tell a therapist one day.

X was engaged three times. That mean 3 times she did it WRONG.
Tell mom you were taking careful notes about how to avoid meeting the cads X engaged.

My mom: "It is time for you to practice flirting a little more. Just find someone who looks more or less safe and find a way to compliment him. For example you could say, 'You have nice penmanship.'"
