Me and my SO are at his parents house for thanksgiving, and I got a call from a friend that another one of our friends just got engaged. I am so excited and happy for them! It kind of sucks though because I feel like my time is not coming.
We have been together for almost 7 years and over the past 2 years I have bee hinting at marriage, within the last year we have had discussions about marriage and having an intimate ceremony and whatever else. It sucks because my friend has been with her boyfriend for about a year and a half and everytime I see her she asks if we are getting married yet. Oy!
It’s just a hard day because I can’t have a conversation with SO about how I feel because my pretty much in laws are around an I do t want them to see me as this marriage crazy person. Ugh, I just need to vent to someone without losing my cool.
Thanks for listening. 🙂

7 years is a long time, sorry you’re having a tough time. Yeah I skipped the whole waiting thing and sat my FI down and told him I want to get married within the next 2 years, I think we should be engaged 🙂 Worked for me. I’m a modern girl 🙂

Forgive me, but I’m confused. Early thanksgiving? Are you at his parents house now? How long will you be there? Sorry you’re having a tough day. But I agree with you that you need to sit him down. Guys aren’t always the most hint conscious. 🙂 Something direct once you get home would be great. My guy told me that once I laid it out on the table for him he realized that it was something he really should have been thinking about all along. His words. 7 years is a long time. The least you deserve is to know if its something he’s actively pursuing.
Hope you feel better!

Sorry, by thanksgiving I meant “Canadian Thanksgiving” 🙂
I managed to get a few minutes with him and I told him how sucky it felt and he told me “soon” then I asked “before the end of the year?” he said “yes before the end of the year.”
I feel better now. Again, thanks for listening.

@Miss. Timms: I’m sorry things were rough, but I’m glad you got a chance to talk about it with your SO. Good to hear that you’re feeling better!

Well, that’s pretty exciting. The year is almost over! 🙂 I’m glad you were able to steal him for a minute. Seems like it really paid off 🙂

Glad to hear that it’s going to be before the end of the year! I understand about it sucking to see those close to you get engaged before you but you’ll get through it. I’ve been with my guy for 7 years as well and he has also promised before the end of the year. Hope it happens soon for you!
