Jealousy can be a very ugly thing… and hopefully this girl will NOT be receiving an invite to be a bridesmaid.

This girl sounds like she has a really mean case of jealousy.

Some people are just way too caught up in their own world to ever be happy for anyone else or be able to see someone else happy without bringing them down.

Hopefully your friend was able to realize that the comment was out of jealousy and had no reflection on her or her Fiance but was just a reflection of this girls true character.

I agree with the ladies who already commented. It really sounds like this girl was just really jealous and neated to suck the happiness out of your friend. It’s really sad that she felt the need to do that to a friend just to make herself feel better. You tell your friend not to let it get to her and that her ring is beautiful and your friend is ugly (on the inside).

OMG! That’s absolutely crushing. Poor girl. Did anyone call her out for her comment? Was it awkward afterwards?

I almost had a slip up like that once. My roommate was the 1st girl I knew that got engaged and while I had congratulated ppl online and over the phone I had never done it in person. She showed me the ring and for whatever reason my brain froze, I couldn’t think, I couldn’t speak, I knew I had to say something and all I could squeak out was “He did a good job.” I felt like a huge ass. And I was genuinely happy for her. No jealousy, nothing. Genuine joy for her. But I couldn’t express a thing, and then when I did I screwed it up. Sigh… 🙂

@claireos: I think “He did a good job” is actually kinda sweet — and shows a recognition that this was a big step for her groom too! In short…don’t beat yourself up. 🙂

I was always taught jealousy is a form of flattery, I hope she was able to just brush it off?

That is just wrong 🙁 I feel so bad for your friend and hope she didn’t let it get to her. Some people have no tact.

@CanadianMermaid: HA!  I liked that response.

The “friend” definitely sounds jealous, but geez.  Even if I were jealous of someone, I still can’t imagine saying something so rude!

I get, like, tears-in-my-eyes, over-the-top jealous sometimes when I hear friends are pregnant or get to see their new baby, but I still manage to cheerfully go on and on about how cute they are and ask all the right questions!!  Sometimes you just gotta put on a giant smile and count your OWN blessings.
