@Mswptobe:  I would be totally annoyed by both of those statements. First of all, strangers should keep their mouths shut! Also, don’t let your friends’ words get to you, sometimes people just don’t think before they speak. Just brush it off, and keep your chin up!

Sometimes it makes me feel good and sometimes it doesn’t. I remember when we were going out for two months we just glanced at some rings for fun and the jeweler was trying to pretty much marry us off already@

@Mswptobe:  This is exactly why I’m currently avoiding all social situations.  Not fun, I’m sorry!

I’ve been with my guy for close to 10yrs and… his younger sister just got engaged and now he’s freaking out because everyone’s looking at us like “what’s wrong with you two?!” 🙂 you’re not alone! This is going to be an awkward holiday season, haha.

I’m so sorry you’re dealing with other people’s awkwardness! I know exactly how you feel. I’ve been with my SO nearly 6 years and around the 3-4 year mark we started getting all of those comments, especially around the holidays or when someone else (always dating wayyyy shorter time than us…) got engaged or married. Even strangers have asked why we’re not married! All the shocked looks and pity-filled “awww, it’ll happen for you soon!” were enough to drive me up a wall and make me question it myself, feel like there was something wrong with me, feel embarrassed that I had no answer to the “why not?”s.

For waiting bees, it’s like we’re already thinking about it and working on being “okay” with waiting… why do these people need to get involved in what they’re already implying is a weird situation? I’m still trying to find the most polite way to respond:P

@Mswptobe:  UGH don’t let this get you down.

Some people make stupid statements…and I would just try not to let it get to you.  Hang in there!
