Last night SO gave me a new timeline of the end of March. This post explains why the timeline got moved. I know it’s a valid excuse and I just have to accept it, plus it’s not that long after our original end-of-2012 timeline. But I’m still bummed.
Last night we were at dinner with friends. In the group I sat with, every. single. person. was engaged. They all told their elaborate proposal stories and talked about their weddings. I’m so tired of hearing about this stuff!!! I just want 2012 to be over. :'(

@newcitylights: I’m sorry! I know how tough it can be to look forward to something and not be able to get it when you expected. And I know it can be tough listening to people talk about their weddings or seeing people younger than you (or who haven’t been dating as long) getting engaged first. It’s a normal reaction to have and at the very least your guy has a really good reason why the timeline was pushed back.
The important thing to remember is that you two have one another and you are both happy and healthy. Do your best to be supportive of your friends and, if you need to vent, just post again on the forums. Sometimes just getting all your emotions out can really help and doing it on a forum can be a good way to do it since the people here are removed from your situation and can look at it with a fresh set of eyes. Plus, this way, none of your friends or your guy get their feelings hurt.
I hope everything works out for you two and I hope that the diamond guy’s wife will be ok!

Big hugs! I don’t know what to tell you, but I hope things improve soon – either you feel better or he asks you. Good luck and sending good vibes your way!

I know it’s hard to deal with the disappointment, but try to focus on the positive aspects. Regarding your engaged friends…think of it this way: they are celebrating now, but early 2013 will be all about you. 🙂

@newcitylights: Awwww honey that is so sad. I am almost crying with frustration for you and your SO. It is the worst that your SO wanted to make it happen and it is being pushed out because of something beyond your control. Yes it is a legit reason and yes it is so, sooo sad and no doubt the friend’s wife is in a much worse situation, but I really, really feel bad for you 🙁
I will agree with PP who said 2013 will be all about you though! And I think at least with your SO (soon to be FI!!! Not long really!!!) he won’t make you wait once he finally has the ring sorted. Also, Tacori, omg they are beautiful!

I know it’s hard, but just remember…..be glad you’re not the one with cancer. As an oncology nurse I see people’s lives taken away every day by cancer, it is devastating. Make sure you don’t lose sight of the bigger picture. But ya, I totally can relate to the feeling, especially when it’s right in your face that everyone else seems to be engaged or married! You’re allowed to be upset about it but don’t forget how precious your health is! Hang in there and try to relax 🙂 I know easier said than done..

I’m sorry, this is why even though I’m engaged I NEVER talk wedding stuff in public unless I’m badgered for details. That’s really rude of them.
But at least you have a very solid timeline, hang in there, I’m sure it’ll be worth the wait!
