Two people I know found out they are pregnant.
One person I know got married.
And four people I know have gotten engaged.
And all of this has been in the last three months.
A friend of mine sent me an “I’m engaged” text last night and I thought I was going to explode. I am so happy for her… but it just reminds me that my bf is dragging his feet.

I know how you feel! I just did a post about this. The best thing I can say is try to focus on yourself right now.

Yes and Yes I know how this feels for sure! What I’ve really been trying to do is keep the lines of communication open. I have been trying to talk to my BF about his ideas of the wedding, showing him things I like, asking him questions about where he sees us later on in life, asking him what his hopes and dreams are. Just trying to get to know him and his ideas beyond just the every day talk. After 3 years you start to think you know everything but there are always questions you haven’t asked or deep down things they have never told you. Ask him about vacations he would like to take when you guys are married. BF and I have actually been having a small fight because I desperately want to go to Europe one day and he has noo desire to. So I started asking him where he wants to go, why he wants to go there.
We’ve both also really been working on treating eachother with the utmost respect. When we started dating we had such good manners, please & thank you, no dear, yes dear, were really trying to get back to doing that and also really working on talking about everything. Things can get heated between us because were both so stubborn and so were really working on listening to one another and trying to see it from the other side.

I’m with ya! It feels like everyone is getting married. I am so happy for everyone, but the last time I got the ‘guess who’s engged’ text, I actually cried (after sending a congratulatory text back). It feels so pathetic, but I can’t help it. We’ve been together 7 years and I know it’s coming soon, just not soon enough.

Urgh. I know the feeling. A close coworker had a baby in April, my cousin had one in June. We’re going to our sixth wedding in 11 months in 2 weeks. And I have reason to believe that at least two more of my friends will soon be engaged. I know SO was looking at rings online but let’s face it, that doesn’t mean much when you went ring shopping (casually) three years ago!

I feel you. There’s something in the water at my office because on any given day, there’s at least one woman who’s pregnant. I joke around that I’m going to start drinking it by the gallon pretty soon. I’m also the only one of my friends that isn’t married. It’s frustrating because you start wondering to yourself “ok, all of these men don’t seem to have a problem getting their butts into gear to buy a ring and propose, what’s my guy’s hang up?” Not the best mind-set to have but sometimes you just can’t help yourself, it’s so very frustrating. I know my SO is on it, but it’s been four months since the light turned green and I just don’t quite understand what’s taking so long. Four months isn’t actually that long of a time but it can seem like an eternity when you’re waiting on something you want so badly! I just keep practicing my deep breathing and telling myself it will happen when it happens. Doesn’t make the wait any easier though.

Thank you ladies for your responses! Last night when I got the “i’m engaged” text I started crying and got so annoyed at Brad (my bf). And today right after Brad and I decided we were going to wait to buy a house until he found a new job… we got a text that some recently engaged friends just bought a house! I am so frustrated!
Brad keeps saying how ugly these other peoples rings are or how their proposals arent creative and I’m about to smack him because at least they have rings! At least they got proposed to!
Thanks again ladies!

And I’ll admit I’m jealous of you gals who’s BF’s have a ring already! Oh man, some days are rough.

Your SO sounds like mine talking about the proposals are creative or the rings.LOL He tells me he wants everything to be perfect.
That’s sweet, but hard to remember when everyone is getting engaged or worst of all for me, pregnant. 🙁 I just remind myself, we want things straight and stable, not wobbly and unstable.
