So I’m posting a lot this week because it has been an especially tough week of waiting. The holidays coming up and seeing my enormous family are making me think about it a lot and I’m alreay stressing about having to answer all the “when are you guys going to finally get married” questions! But tonight just topped it off…
Tonight I drove to pick up some stuff I had purchased from a girl I know…who is now married to my ex-bf. As I left their house I got super depressed. They started dating just 6 months before I started dating my current SO and it made me really jelous to see where they are at. (Not jelous that she is with him, I love my SO more than anything). Not only are they married and actually coming up on their 5th anniversary (I believe), but they also have 2 beautiful kids who are 3 and 1 year old. It just made my life seem really pathetic. 🙁
How is it that some guys propose after being with the girl for less than a year and others take FOREVER?! I’m coming up on 6 years with my SO this spring and it seems really embarrassing to introduce him as my boyfriend still. He, of course, said he doesn’t have any problem calling me his girlfriend in front of people he knows…he didn’t even understand why I thought that sounded childish. UGH!
Sorry for the long rant! Who better to understand than other waiting bees! 🙂
