Haruyou:  Try not to compare yourself to other people, though I know it can be really hard. And depending on your age, financial circumstances, area you live – it can be SO hard to buy a house!! I didn’t get my first til I was 30.

Sorry you’re having such a rough day. Just keep your head up.

We are going through a similar situation. We started dating 6mo’s before this other couple and they have hit all the milestones before or right at the same time as us. They got a house right when we got an apartment. They got their dog as soon as we decided to get a cat. They got engaged after us but are getting married same time as us. They both got new jobs before us and look like a magazine couple. I feel like I can’t keep up with everyone. We just have to remind ourselves that we aren’t running to the finish line. We are going our own pace and there is nothing wrong with that. It’s silly to compare our lives to other peoples but we do it because we can’t help it!!

Haruyou:  It’s really not a race.  I’m 32, we just bought our first house.  We skipped the starter home and bought a house we can stay in forever.  Why?  Because it worked for us and its what we wanted.  

You don’t know what goes on in their relationship, it might be great or it might not.  But you know yours.  Focus on you.  Make yourself and your fiance happy.  Do what you can afford, when you can afford it.  And more importantly, when you want to.  It’s not a competition.
