This was very insightful! I myself felt quilty when sharing of the possibiliy of engagement to others not as hopeful.

I am so glad you posted this. We got engaged a week ago while on vacation and decided to tell family and friends before putting it on Facebook. FI’s best friend’s girlfriend is waiting impatiently and we wanted to make sure she found out through him. Neither of them responded to the email or text message about the engagement and I could see how sad it made FI and how petty it made them look to mutual friends. After we posted it on fb she put a self-centered Congrats (mentioning how hard it was to keep the secret, not realizing 40+ people knew 3 days before her) and he texted my FI a day later. I didn’t realize how much sour grapes could kill our excitement and how bad it made them look.

Good grief, you can always count on someone to try and make you feel miserable, can’t you?  The main thing to remember is the envy is their problem, not yours.  Don’t let it spoil your moment.

Besides, there are enough of us pleased for you to more than make up for the miserable minnies…
