- Wedding: December 2011
So get a load of this –
about a year and a half ago I joined a book club with 7 ladies. One is married, one had gotten engaged days before our first meeting. So – there were 5 of us who were “single” (unengaged)…alot of our bookclub time was actually taken up talking about relationships, marriage, kids, etc. One of the girls had been with her SO for 10 years, one was 34 and had been with her SO for 3 years, I am 29 and had been with my SO for 4 years, my bff is 27 and had been with her SO for 2 years, and the last girl was younger (22 I think), single and fancy free!
Like i said , we spent alot of time discussing our relationships. And then, in a whilrwind of activity last september, things started happening and patterns started to develop! My bff got engaged, and a week later I got engaged. 2 weeks after that the 34 year old got engaged, and the young girl started a crazy intense relationship. To all of our surprise, the girl who’d been with her SO 10 years got proposed to at christmas and eloped a month later….and i *just* got an email from the young girl, who’s travelling in SE Asia with her love, that he just proposed!!!!! So, in 7 months we went from no engagements to 5 engagements and soon to be 3 marrieds (my bff and the 34 year old are getting married in the next month).
Isn’t it funny how these things happen in waves?? If you’d said this to me a year ago I would have said you’re crazy!
