Since I’ve been waiting (months and months), I’ve ALWAYS noticed when someone gets proposed to or married on TV. I really feel like the theme is one of the most common themes on TV. On a few shows my SO and I have binge-watched over the past months, it seems that one or the other occurs at LEAST once per season (usually much more often).
I used to say something every time I saw it, but I stopped about 2 months ago. It drives me crazy!!
Does any other waiting bees (or planning bees) notice the frequency of these themes?

Jadegreen: We were watching Californication… and recently we’re on Lost. OMG. I feel like it’s almost every other episode (I know it’s not… but it drives me crazy).

Yep!! Or in adverts or in really unexpected TV programmes too! The last two lots of UFC OH has watched marriages/weddings have been mentioned. And lyrics in songs. And I think it’s all just there to torment me more.

damarajade: I really think its like this for every woman out there. When I was waiting, all I saw on TV was proposal stuff. Now, its all wedding stuff. But, I really think its psychological. Especially since, for instance, we were just looking at Dodge trucks, and all of a sudden it seemed like that was the only truck on the road. Or, when I was TTC, I swear every woman on the planet was pg!

I notice it way more often now that I want a ring and a wedding. I agree with …
That it really is just psychological. And if he knows you want that I’m sure he’s noticing it a lot more too. Mine has definitely started commenting on them now that he knows I’m waiting.
That being said, people on TV do get a lot more proposals and marriages than regular people. They have to put the most exciting things into their seasons and girls really do eat that stuff up!

I was JUST thinking about this this morning! SO has recently gotten me completely hooked on Chicago Fire. For the last month or so we have been watching last season on demand to get me ready for the season premiere last week. So a couple of weeks ago we watched last season’s finale and in that one episode there was a wedding/reception and a proposal. Then last week on the premiere there was discussion about the proposal. I see in the ads for tonight’s episode that there’s a proposal again (a do-over of the one from last season but still).
My frustration/hurt with our situation is to the point that it is getting uncomfortable watching all these proposals with SO.
