Aww! You poor thing!

I think it’s natural, though… DH was nearly the last of his friends to get married, and I think that was a pretty big motivator for him!

@NinjaWings:  Is there anything else that makes you think he’s only doing this because of his friends?

I don’t think he’d be ordering stones, going to look at them with you, and deciding to propose that concretely if it was really just about keeping up with his friends. I honestly think that no one but the crappiest guy is going to do that sort of thing without truly wanting marriage.

It sounds like you might be letting the waiting get the better of you. I have been there, and it sucks– it makes your whole relationship seem bad. Try not to let the whole friends getting engaged thing bother you– if you need to, have a rant with your friends or even your SO about how you are annoyed that everyone else is getting engaged! It is very annoying, and I’m sure your SO knows that it bothers you already.

Please don’t let this jealousy take the fun out of planning your ring and getting engaged! It sounds like it is coming for you soon.

@NinjaWings:  Try to not be resentful of this Frown  

It’s unfortunate, but I know that if none of my SO’s brother’s were getting married and he didn’t have friends getting married either, I’m pretty sure he would NEVER be motivated to propose…and there’s still no telling when that will be lol.  He will only do it when he WANTS to and not because he thinks he HAS to, most men are practical and would rather never marry than divorce.  And it sounds like he wants to marry you.  Try to stay positive!
