its hard but just dont be that friend thats a downer on their special time.

we have a friend who ruined both mine and my friends engagement parties and hens nights by throwing a tantrum and sulking in the bathroom etc,

and now its her turn (she finally got engaged) i wouldnt dream of doing that to her. i still get pissed thinking the way she acted at mine and my friends stuff.

your time will come dont worry! it feels like it wont but it will!!!

@MrsToBeeMgn:  yea i didnt think u did from your post, it takes a special kind of idiot to do that to friends haha!

i know how sucky it is when others are engaged around you though – esp if you have been together longer too. hard to watch.

My best friend from high school just got engaged 2 weeks ago… We are the same age and I’ve been dating my BF twice as long as she has. It sucks…

I feel your frustration. I also hide in my corner and pout but I am happy as can be when I am around all my other married and engaged friends. Thats why I come here! Somewhere to rant about the unfairness of it all! Lol, ok thats probably a little dramatic, I just had to say it.

I feel your pain.  My girlfriend got engaged on Valentine’s Day and I was/am extremely happy for her, but I felt a twinge of sadness after because hey, I want my moment to.  It didn’t last long however because I know my time will come.  SO promises it “will happen by August,” so that helps A LOT…but you are not alone.

@MrsToBeeMgn:  hang in there girly! you are not alone. so far, two of my friends have gotten enagaged AND married all within a span of 6 months and they have not even been with their SO’s as long as I have been with mine. Also, now that they are married they believe themselves to be relationship experts -__- that is so frustrating because i feel like they dont take my relationship seriously. so keep your head up! our time will come! 🙂

@daffodil89:  We must have the same friends!

@MrsToBeeMgn:  The best remedy I have found is to find another waiting friend IRL and lightheartedly tease the couples just between you two. It lets off some of the tension and makes it a lot easier to be happy for them when you’re around them. I know that sounds mean, but it isn’t meant to be, especially if its private and often about trivial things.

@MrsToBeeMgn:  Aw, I’m sorry. Well I think the best I can do is hugs for you, then!

I know how you feel. All my close friends are married or engaged. I’m helping my bff finish up planning for her May wedding, so I am in a constant flux of excitement, joy, sadness, twinges of jealousy and then guilt. Lol. Bff only knows about the first two though of course! She was my last area to lean on though so its been a bit lonely in that department since she got engaged last year.

I was thrown so many questions about my relationship status over the holidays I retreated to become a hermit! Unfortunetly I too have three wedding to go to as well this year and I am certain will be ringless for all of them myself. So I’m mentally prepping myself to be okay and enjoy 2014 as it comes. It is getting better. Hopefully you won’t have to have the same, I hope to be congratulating you very soon! 😉

@MrsToBeeMgn:  I have been in that position, but you know what.   I  am 30 been with my SO for almost a decade and the last of my circle of friends to take that step.    It felt like being stabbed everytime I saw someone get engaged.   Yet I sucked it up.  

Also I am someone who loves to see how these relationships pan out.   Most of my friends are still happily married,  while I know one is divorced (hello, he got with her because he was already dating her sister…bells).      I know time will come and we will be wearing that special ring.
