Good thing I’m over (for now) my OHMYGODIHAVETOGETMARRIEDNOWJUSTHURRYUPANDPROPOSE phase, otherwise this wouldn’t be half as funny as it should be:
Or maybe I just have some warped sense of humor that makes this funny. (By warped, I don’t mean that I think it’s funny that gay people are currently not allowed to get married, but more as warped as in it’s funny to me because I know how ridiculous I sound when I’m whining about not being married when there are people who don’t even have the option to.)

Well, it’s better to laugh than cry! Finding humour in a situation always helps me. And believe me, I *know* about waiting. I’m 34 and am getting married for the first time. I’ve had a few serious relationship in my 20s but none of them worked out (note: now looking back, I know I was dating the wrong kind of guy). Friend after friend, would get married. I actually was a maid of honour in 2 weddings and that was always hard. Don’t get me wrong, I was happy for my bride friends, but so envious. It also brought some stuff up like “what’s wrong with me?” etc.
Anyway, after lots of work on myself, I did find a great guy (this one totally available and able to commit!) and we’ve been together for 3 years now. When we finally went to look at rings together last year, we had to wait about 8 weeks after it was ordered. That 8 weeks seemed longer than the 33 years before that! I didn’t want to tell anyone before it was “official” etc. Well we finally got “officially” engaged and are getting married in August. It’s honestly the happiest time of my life. And it was so worth the wait .
Your time will come, I promise! And when it does, it’ll be all worth it.

I am at the end of one of those OHMYGOSHHURRYUPANDPROPOSE phases (it was a pretty ugly one)…and I still think this is pretty funny!

Don’t worry, I think this is absolutely hilarious. I saw this earlier today (I subscribe to someecards on Facebook now, so I get their updates all the time) and inside I just shouted “YES!!” and couldn’t stop laughing
The reason I thought it was so funny is because I have had this exact same thought myself, now that gay marriage is becoming a possibility. I think its great that gay couples are being allowed to marry, but at the same time I’ve had the sinking disappointment of knowing that legalizing gay marriage is just going to open the door for more of my friends to get married before me.
A few months ago I said to myself after finding out another of my exes is getting married, “Now all of my exes are married or getting married, or gay. But hey, I’m pretty sure my gay ex with be married before I am at this rate!”

lol! I think it’s hilarious. I love it. It actually made me laugh and feel silly about the bit of waiting anxiety I’ve had lately.

Haha. I haven’t been waiting long so I haven’t lost my patience – yet. But once I’ve waited long enough, I’m sure I’m going to need pick-me-ups like this. lol

@sleepingbeauty88: I love this – i’m not entirely sure if i’m entering or leaving the OHMYGOSHHURRYUPANDPROPOSE phase or maybe just going around for a second dose- but it made me laugh either way!

@emmylouloubobells: I still go through it every once in awhile, but it’s more of a “lets just get this over with” feeling than before.
