I got married 4 months ago. Wedding was wonderful, husband is wonderful, and I’m loving married life. We have a close friend who has a new girlfriend. They have currently been together about 6 months and already live together. Every time I hang out with them, when I leave I find myself feeling super annoyed with them.
They aren’t overtly PDAish, but it’s more the way they act. The only way I can describe it is they act as if they are the only couple who has ever been in love. They have all these pet names for each other, talk about incredibly personal aspects of their relationship out in the open as if it’s normal, claim they have never had a fight and are already talking about getting married. She asked me what we did for Valentine’s Day (they had a whole day planned of special couple activities), and I was just like “well we’ve been together 7 years and V day just isn’t a big deal to us anymore. I made a fancier than normal dinner and that’s about it”, and she just acted like that was the worst thing in the world and said how she hopes they never get that way.
While I know I should be happy for my friend, I am just incredibly annoyed every time I hang out with them. Has anyone else experienced this, and how do you move past it? I hate feeling this way, but ugghhh I just can’t seem to just move on and be happy for them. Maybe I am jealous of “new love” since I know I’ll never have that again? I don’t know, just wanting some others’ thoughts.

I think people act a little goofy a lot of times when it’s a new love or new crush. It doesn’t really bother me because I think it’s kinda a necessary stage for a lot of people to go through and I’m just glad I don’t have to go through all that again. I’m really happy with what me and my hubby have and people are at different points in their life. I guess maybe little digs about a boring Valentines day might be a bit annoying but it’s just overexuberance at their romance so I’d be inclined to laugh it off.
