I think everyone feels this way sometimes. I had been dating my then Boyfriend or Best Friend (now DH) for over two years when friends of ours got engaged. At the time  I was house sitting for DH’s parents (and i got a text from DH’s ex saying “guess what?! We are engaged” (she got enaged to my Darling Husband best friend). I was so upset I actually threw the phone across the room!!! *laugh* (I later retrieved and texted congrats).

 

It gets overwhelming alot of the times…but it will be your turn one day and it will be awsome! “:)

Be patient. It sucks and it’s hard. But let him do his thing. Engagement is not a competition and you do not want to make him feel like all you care about is the ring. Enjoy the holidays with him whether he proposes or not. ^_^

I can totally TOTALLY relate to this. A little more than a year ago one of my oldest friends got engaged. At the time I had been with my then Boyfriend or Best Friend, now fiance, for two years and living together for over a year. The thing that turned me into a waiting crazy person was that she got engaged after dating her BF/FI for TWO MONTHS. TWO MONTHS! And they set the wedding date for six months later. At the time of their wedding they’d known eachother for 10 months.

I was genuinely happy for her and obviously congratulated her and was excited … but I can’t say I wasn’t seriously irritated (and fine, yes, jealous) and that I didn’t take it out on Boyfriend or Best Friend for a while (not one of my prouder moments). But people get engaged all the time and you just don’t realize it until you want it SO desperately. I’m sure your time will be soon! Keep your head up ๐Ÿ™‚

Oh hun, I know the feeling for sure! Soooo many of my friends got engaged around the same time, also during the time in which my Fiance (then boyfriend) and I were seriously discussing marriage and engagement.

I know it’s so hard, but try to be happy for your friends, because you’ll want them to be happy for you. And when it finally happens, you won’t even care about all the other stuff. ๐Ÿ™‚ Hang in there!

Aw, it will come. ๐Ÿ™‚ I feel the same way sometimes, not often since not too many ppl around me get engaged,LOL, but when they do, I feel a little sad. I didn’t think I’d be waiting this far into our relationship, which is relatively short compared to a lot of people, but we are older.

I will say this Christmas will be better than last years. Last year I pressured myself, this year, I’m surprisingly chill. ๐Ÿ™‚ If it doesn’t hapen, gives me more time to get ideas together.
