My family lives OOT, and most of my friends here are male, or if they are female, they’re just acquaintances. A lady who I’m friends with on FB mentioned something to me along the lines of “just wait until your bridal shower! that’s the best part!” … but… i’m not having a bridal shower.
My sister lives in California with her husband, and absolutely NO WAY of getting here financially. None of my friends are into wedding things (they’re all single/don’t care) … so it’s just me. *shrugs*
My sister had a HUGE bridal shower. I was young when she got married (she’s quite older than me) and was in awe of the ritual of the whole thing. All these ladies get together and have a nice lunch, and open gifts, and giggle and talk about wedding things. At the time, my mom said “Don’t worry AquaGrey, someday you’ll have one too!”
I just wish I had that. That feeling of being loved, and cared about enough for someone to throw you a party. It’s not even the gifts. F— the gifts. None of my friends ever even show up on my BIRTHDAY. I send out invites (via Facebook) like 3 weeks before, and no one RSVPs, and no one shows up. For the past 3 years now, it’s just been me and the FI on my birthday.
Sorry for this really lame, sad, post. I’m just feeling left out, and wishing I had some decent friends.
