I was feeling very low two weeks ago because of a Facebook Engagement announcement.  My Cousin, who is three weeks younger then myself and has been with his g/f for a few years got engaged.  I knew it was coming but that didnt make it hurt any less.  My Aunt flat out told me the week prior that he would be getting engaged and he would be passing me by.  (i’ve been with my SO for almost 10 years)  

Yesterday my friend on FB was wedding dress shopping…..and its wedding season in Florida so there have been at least two weddings on my facebook news feed every weekend.  I can’t help it, it all bothers me.  So I understand how you are feeling.  I just have to keep thinking that it will soon be me, and I enjoy thinking about finally making that engagement post….it will be great!

I know how you feel. I just found out five minutes ago my second cousins wedding is in July. I didn’t even know she was engaged. I am about burst into tears. But I’m with my family at this moment and I don’t want to cry in front of them.

I can definitely relate to you and want you to know your feelings are valid and justified.  Waiting is incredibly hard when you know exactly what you want and have been very patient.  I just try to think about how I would want people to feel when they see my FB status one day, and try to give them the same feelings of good will that I will want.  It helps a little bit.

I was literally just about to post the same thing. Two friends got engaged in the span of one day and both of them have been in a relationship way less time than I’ve been in mine. (A year or less compared to my 4 1/2 years.) Trust me you are not the only one feeling this.

If there was a table light enough near me I would be flipping it right now, lol.

I felt the same way! My friend and I are both dating soldiers, so they got to come home for Christmas. I had a wonderful holiday, as did she. BUT she got engaged! I was soooo happy for her, yet inside wanted it for myself! But my Fiance and I love each other, and have discussed it numerous times so I was patient. Fast forward to Easter, he came to visit and asked! πŸ™‚

It’ll come, girl! Just sit tight. XX

@lovey_dovey:  I feel you!! All of my FB friends and I are in the mid/late 20’s so almost everytime I log on it’s a new engagement on my news feed. And what’s worse is that while I’m trying to shut it up I can’t help but mention them to my SO in terms of congratulating or even being shocked at who’s getting engaged. It does suck… but it will come!
