Can I empathise with your vent? Genuinely is ridiculous and even their engagements are mere months before the wedding. I know engagement season per se is not until November but wedding season really does bring a lot of proposals too. I always question what I’m doing wrong too.

Ladies, I definitely don’t think there’s anything wrong with you.. but I absolutely understand the frustration. I even deactivated my facebook for a few months before because I was so sick of seeing other people (highschool classmates, aquaintances) get engaged and I’m like oh.. someone else just got engaged…(but not me!) sigh.

Have you had a conversation about marriage & are you both definitely on the same page?

If you’re certain he’s onboard with the whole marriage idea maybe you could propose to him? That’s what I’d do – but I’m not one to wait around for something I want lol.

Yeep :  saaaaame.  Someone who only MET their New Fi in November 2016 and they plan to get married in May. It’s crazy though. There’s someone else but I can’t really remember who.

  • Wedding: July 2019

These past 2 years, I had lots of engagements and weddings everywhere. But only one that happened really quickly. I personally don’t know why the rush and why they had to get engaged so soon but who am I to judge haha. 

My SO’s 2 friends will be proposing to their girlfriends in August and another one expected proposal in October.

Engagement season all around! Lol.

I’m not really jealous cos my SO bought the ring and we are in agreement that the proposal will be next year. But the waiting game is going to be hard since there’s 12 months each year and it could just be anytime! 

I would say try to wait patiently, as hard as it is. You don’t want to destroy his surprise wink

Yeep :  Ugh, I feel ya girl. I see the same stuff all the time too. Like oh look! Another person happily engaged… death stare at my BF hahah. He nearly crapped a brick when his mom told him his sister got engaged.  No idea why I was so impressed, but he had rememered from a while ago when I said that I always wanted to be proposed to on a mountain. I think it was because he has the memory of a goldfish…he said ” I remembered because it was important to you” and I stupidly was like “It will probably be too cold here in October!” (which is my birth month and was hoping he would do it then) and then I was like crap, sorry, hope you weren’t planning on that! He won some award for work and they are giving him a check for a few thousand(!!!) dollars, I told him he’s got no excuse now!!! Lets hope he purchases it soon 🙂

I feel you bee! Waiting is the worst thing ever. It’s really hard now as my so closed on a condo and everyone he knows asks him “when is your girlfriend gonna move in?” He tells them that I have school this year and hopefully he will propose in Christmas or early next year. The worse part is that my cousin who got married after being broken up twice got pregnant three weeks after married, and he bought my ring and paid it off! 😉

I hear you!!! I ask myself what am I doing wrong too! frown It is hard when the couple that has been together just as long as me and SO will be celebrating their 1st year of marriage this August. Its so frustrating! Our timeline is next month but I haven’t gotten any vibes of him purchasing anything ring related (he’s pretty bad about keeping secrets). We will see ugh!!

I’ve been noticing this too! And I really don’t think it’s just that “I was about to get engaged, so I noticed it more.” I’ve always noticed engagement announcements and liked and commented b/c I’ve always been so happy for others.

But on the lead up to US getting engaged, I swear a different friend got engaged every weekend for about 2 months straight! One of my friends (we went to the 7th grade dance together – haha) got engaged AND, a few hours later, started sharing wedding pics – they had eloped! I didn’t know engagement season was a thing, much less that it starts in November…? Definitely doesn’t seem that way!

duchessgummybunns :  here in UK wedding season and engagement season is at the same time so summer is rife.
