KaitlynBrooke:  

I am a little younger than you (and perhaps see less engagemennts/marriages/babies via facebook) but I think I understand how you feel. I just want it to be my turn already! (after 4+ years with my SO) Even here it seems like tons of bees are getting engaged lately.

I know waiting can feel like a giant pain in the ass sometimes. I wonder if it’s because we don’t know when it’s happening, or that we aren’t in control of this major aspect of our lives- I mean we are in that it’s a decision you make together to get married, but in the waiting for him to ask you bit.

It seems like you’re on the same page, and I hope it’ll happen soon for you!

I actually was sort of late in getting married, for my social group. Most of my high school friends are married, several have an entire brood of children, and I’m only 27!

KaitlynBrooke:  I know the feeling. SO and I have talked about it and definitely see marriage and kids in our future, but when? Well who flippin knows cant get a timeline out of that one.

We just moved in together so I know it is a step in the right direction, but this weekend one of my good friends got engaged (yay!) and then i tell him and he was like “ohh no – i dont like” and i asked why and replied “you know why” he was smiling but it still kind of upset me. Just reminded me we are on two different pages about timelines i guess. I was hoping within the next year – which could still be a huge possibility, but i suppose it was like “oh right, yeah you dont think about it every day like I do” lol

Logically i am not mad at him. I totally get it – its only been 3 years, we JUST moved in together, we dont have a whole lot on savings, but then emotionally im like I already KNOW i want to marry you and would do it tomorrow if you asked, kinda hurts to think they dont feel the same. BUT then we have to remind ourselves of all the wonderful things they do for us and how they prove that they love us and want to marry us – just not yet -____- haha

KaitlynBrooke:  I am with you girl. This last holiday season was brutal with all of the FB engagement updates. I almost had to quit. And of course my cousin, who was my waiting buddy, got engaged the weekend of my birthday. I cried. I am beyond ready and my BF is just not quite there yet. Some days I’m okay with it and other days I get full of self pity and feel like it is never going to happen. I feel like this site might be making me a little bit more crazy, but it is also awesome to find that there are other girls out there feeling the exact same way that I do. Hang in there! Hopefully our wait will end soon!
