So, I just saw the profile of a guy I dated when I became newly single last year, since I found I still had a pic tagged of him on my myspace. He has been with his new girlfriend for less than I have been with my boyfriend. And not only are they engaged…but they have a kid on the way.
You know, it just pisses me off. I can’t even get my guy to buckle down and try to even start the first part of tying the knot-as in getting engaged-even when I am an EXCELLENT parent (or positive influence I guess you could say, but he told me randomly last night, that I am the best “second mommy” ever lol, since he has a 2 year old daughter) treat him right, do his laundry and want the best for him and his daughter, while supporting him in all he chooses to do and try to join in on things he enjoys. But he still won’t. It just pisses me off. I mean, my karma should have kicked in by now. I give the courtesy wave to ALL that let me in, or that give the wave to me. I try to let people in while driving all the time, to help thier day get better. And when I see a good driver-ie, someone getting over into the slow lane to let me pass and whatnot, I say a little prayer for them to have a good day/evening/weekend. Don’t I deserve something great as well?
And I know you all will say to be thankful for what I have, and that maybe my good thing is a dedicated boyfriend and his beautiful daughter. But it get’s to the point where that just isn’t cutting it. I think I need to go clean now. 🙁

Not to judge, and I don’t know more about the situation than you have listed here, but there’s a chance that your ex is engaged BECAUSE there is a kid on the way…just sayin’!!
As far as your current relationship, it sounds like that you’re just doing too much – I don’t mean this in a mean way, but you know that saying, “Nice guys finish last?” Well, you’re kinda being the “Nice girl,” and it shouldn’t be that way – you just seem to deserve much more – just from this post, it seems like you’re being taken for granted.

((HUGS)) We’re >>here<< lol have you read my vents lately?! I am so very ready to begin the rest of my life with him that it’s ridiculous.. I don’t know if they literally need a fire under their ass or what but it’s getting old. That’s so cute to say you’re the best second mommy though <3… M is a single dad and has two little ones as well and they call me their Britt (<3 them lol)… I say being thankful gets old when you;re ready to begin the rest of your life with the person you were meant for.

I am a firm believer in things happening for a reason. Maybe it just isn’t the right time yet. Maybe he has some reservations. Not sure how long you two have been together so can’t say for sure.It’s hard to believe when looking forward but in looking back it’s interesting to see how things just “fall together” even when you think you’ve made mistakes or things didn’t go as you had planned. Also think it’s great that you are a nice person and considerate of others but not sure that will speed up an engagement.
