I know the feeling. After 6 years I would have thought I’d gotten a ring by now!!! One day soon my day will come.

ksn1219:  What is there to be jealous of, if their relationships are so “ridiculous” and insignificant to yours?

Waiting is hard when…

You’ve been dating your SO for 7 years and all of his siblings get engaged or married before you, even though you and your SO have been dating for YEARS longer than any of them! And of course, all of our friends getting engaged and married too after we’ve been dating longer. Sometimes it’s enough to make me feel insane…but I’m holding out for this one. I know it will be worth it in the end 🙂

You work at a damn wedding venue. And plan other women’s weddings for them and get asked 8 times a day, “so when is YOUR wedding?”

Well, the bright side is that those two females who keep giving their rings back will probably be divorced just as fast if the weddings ever happen. They are not taking getting married seriously. Please, try not to compare your relationship to that of others. You will end up being miserable. I can’t tell you how many people lie about their relationships and lives because they get off on having others THINK that they are happy. It would make more sense to actually work on finding happiness, but it may just be easier to pretend…. Focus on what you DO have, instead of what you don’t and before you know it, you will end up where you hope to be. Good luck!

Waiting is hard period. I don’t have patience haha so life is hard for me every day lol. I met my fiance online and he asked when i’d like to meet him and I was like “how about right now? Lets meet at this location in five!” haha and a day after we met I was like “so do you want me to be your gf or not?” and then a week later he asked me to move in with him, a month later we agreed we’d get angaged after a year at least (promise ring) and a little over a year we are now engaged. And even in this short span of time I feel like i’ve been really patient haha. 

Since the day we met we’ve been inseprable and never have we had a fight where we dangled the option of a breakup in eachothers faces, thats not healthy, period. I couldn’t imagine my life without him in it and now that i’ve had him I could never give back my ring or threaten to leave in a moment of anger becasue it wouldn’t be true, i would never want that. 

I don’t think realationships 6 years old trumps a 1 year old realationship or visa versa because time means nothing. If it’s good then it’s good and if not i don’t know why people bother sticking around in somehting shitty.

ksn1219:  eugh! I hear you. I’m the last of my friends and family to get engaged!

 

Here’s mine: Waiting is hard when your ring is in the process of being custom made, and it seems like its taking FOREVER!

However, I can take solace in that the boyf and I are secretly planning our wedding before the lady-ring arrives so that we have enough time to secure everything

IN 48 hours 3 friends have announced their engagment. Also my bfs best friend got engaged 2 months ago, after a fight where he got kicked out of the house. They have a disfunctional relationship and she has attempted to go out of her way to tell me how sorry she feels about me not being engaged. Despite the fact I have never mentioned being bothered by not being engaged yet.

What no ones know is that my ring is being custom made and that he was in search for the perfect canary diamond ( the jeweler had a limited stock). Oh also I changed my mind about the design 3 weeks ago so they had to start over :/

Waiting is hard when you go to his brother’s wedding, hugely pregnant, and everyone asks when you are getting married, and saying I know who is getting married next!. I have no idea, ask him, he wants to do the proposing. Fast forward 18 months, there have been 4 weddings in his family alone, my sister got engaged, and 2 of my cousins have gotten married. I still don’t have a ring.
