@katiecat08:  Don’t waste money on a cheap ring. Relax, take your time, don’t forget to enjoy what you have right now. It’s not a competition or a race to the altar.

Facebook is obnoxious like that, no matter what stage of life you’re in. All things Facebook aside, I hope you and your SO can get on the same page regarding a timeline for your engagement. 🙂

Trust me, I feel your pain.  I think everyone that I know that was in a relationship has gotten engaged over the last two months.  Every single one.  Except me.  So I know how you feel.  At least you know your SO wants to marry you.  I still have no clue about mine.

Ohhh Facebook… This was me last summer. 4 of my friends got engaged and like 2 more got married. I was honestly jealous. My advice: talk to your SO about a timeline. I kid you not, when my guy gave me a timeline, many of my waiting woes went away. 

Good luck.

@Gemstone:  Totally agree; social network always make you feel like you’re one step behind no matter what! Take a deep breath and know that your time will come!

Honestly, if you have a wedding date and are planning a wedding, you’re engaged. Change your status on FB and call it a day.

You could always take a break from Facebook until the engagement season is over.

I don’t have many bitter days waiting (more less patient but still pretty darn happy) but FB is the absolute enemy to being content with your life.

There will always be someone who is more beautiful, skinny, engaged, pregnant or whatever _________ you are pining for. (Dunno how someone is more pregnant than you are… but you get the point)! Don’t waste your energy comparing your real life to everyone else’s prettied up digital self, it isn’t fair to yourself.

@AbqAndrea:  +1

 

Generally people only post really overly exuberant happy stuff or dramatic bad stuff. FB intensifies all your insecurities, but everyone has felt like that. One day you’ll be making all your FB friends go mad with jealousy!

When I was single and lost in my late 20s, I deactivated Facebook. It definitely helped me focus and see things clearly. Plus the time not wasted on FB I put towards pursuing my real goals. And those real goals eventually led me to an environment where I met my DH. See how it works? 🙂

Facebook is definitely everyone’s highlight reel. You only see the positive – very rarely the negative.

If you’re so stressed about weddings and engagements on Facebook, why the heck are you on Weddingbee?!This is the epitome of wedding news and nonsense.
