@TexasSpringBride:  Your aunt sounds crazy. I’d just ignore someone like that. I’m sure she’s not stealing your thunder aside from people worrying about her mental health.

I don’t really believe in waiting to get engaged/annouce engagements because of other people… but if she really invented a relationship just to steal your thunder, that’s ridiculous and I’m sorry you’re dealing with it. Ultimately, it’s kinda funny and REALLY pathetic, though… don’t you just feel sorry for her that she’s that damn lonely and crazy? She’ll be the one who looks odd in the end, when there’s no wedding, and one has ever met or even seen the guy. Its unfortunte that family would do this, but just feel sorry for her, ignore her, and enjoy your engagement.

She got engaged to herself? And people are taking that seriously? What? Huh?

So many questions. Congratulations on your REAL engagement. Your aunt’s nonsense will fade away.

Congrats on your engagement!!!

I’m sorry to say it like that, but your aunt sound like she has some emotional/mental issues. If people are taking her seriously, oh well. You know she is “crazy”. How sad that she is so immature, attention-seeking, and bratty at her age.

Try your best not to get wrapped up in her drama.

How does she know you hid her news feed?  Facebook doesn’t “tell” those kind of changes…. so the only way she would know is if you told her, or posted that you made an update.  You can unfriend someone, or block them…. and facebook doesn’t announce that kind of thing……

 

I’m not really sure why you are still friends with her on FB anyway, as you indicate she has called you names.  Why stay FB friends at all with someone who creates drama?

Yeah. She just sounds crazy, literally, and I feel sorry for her. People will realize she’s not actually engaged sooner rather than later. Carry on & do your best to ignore her… she sounds like a troubled person.

Wow… she’s craaaazy. 

They’ll see through it, relax.  Start posting public messages on her wall asking when her wedding date is (since you don’t want to plan yours too close), what colors she’s using (since you don’t want to copy!), what sort of flowers and invitations she’s considering.  I wonder if she’ll plan a whole fake wedding?! 

I mean, really… 

In any case, congratulations!!  Just keep your plans to yourself.  Check with your close family members when you set a date, and keep it to yourself until you send save-the-dates or invitations.

She didn’t steal the engagement date because she’s not engaged. I’d be super sweet to her.

“OMG I’m so excited for you! Did anyone take a pic of the proposal? Where’s a picture of the mystery man???”

“Ooooh where did he get the ring from? How long have you guys been dating? I wanna see a picture of you two together! How did he propose? I’m just so excited for you!”
