I’m not engaged yet but I have thought about this exact issue 🙂
I think jealousy will be an issue with two of them. The one friend I feel like I can’t say anything positive happening in my life to her without her being fake-sounding about how happy she is for me, or completely ignoring me. Seriously, she’s been single for a few years and is very bitter about it so if I talk about my boyfriend I live with at all and our future over e-mail or messenger she’s guaranteed to change the subject or stop replying. There was a girl she’s not friends with but knows a four hour drive away from us, she’s not on her Facebook, she doesn’t like her much, found out she was engaged by snooping on Facebook and I had to hear about how unfair that was and how mad it makes her that other people get engaged and she can’t get a boyfriend. So when I do get engaged, which I’m thinking will be soonish, I’ll be terrified to tell her.
The other chick… She has told me upfront soon after becoming friends that if I get engaged first she will be so jealous because she’s been with her man for a few years longer and has a house with him. That’s the only thing. I know she’d be happy for me, but the conversations after that would be about her and how she doesn’t have a ring yet.
So I get how it would be hard to tell others!
