Today kind of sucked, and I need somebody to tell me to suck it up and get over it. I went shopping with my mom today and we ran into a family friend that we have not seen in about 3 years. Before even saying hi to me, she asked if I was married yet…not engaged…MARRIED! So that got me a little down, but I was able to brush it off, until I got home and signed on facebook to see that a friend from school (not a close friend) just got engaged. I’m trying not to get upset with the Boyfriend or Best Friend, but sometimes its a little hard, you know? I just need somebody to tell me to quit feeling sorry for myself!

You’re lucky! you have a man who apparently wants to wait until its the absolute most perfect time to pop the question. He loves you enough to realize that if he did do it while you were begging for it and nagging him for it you will always look at that ring and wonder if that’s really why he proposed.
Congrats on snagging such a great and loving guy!

dear ilovedance17: suck it up and get over it.
lol. but seriously, i know there are days when typical chatter will hit you harder than most. happens to me every so often. i’m one of the few of my friends that hasn’t gotten engaged or married so i’m surrounded by it all the time. while i do take a few minutes to enjoy a good pity party, i don’t let it go on for long. just keep focused on what you do have with your bf and the future that you’re building towards. no rush. it’ll happen and when it does, it’ll be fantabulous.
in the meantime, you can always hang out on the waiting boards! we’ll be here!

Awwwwwww…it’s okay guys can be particulary sloooooow sometimes, but have some patience, he’ll get there with you 😉
As for the family friend, she can go suck it! lol, j/k…I once had an aunt ask me if I was married yet…to an ex I had broke up with at least two years prior…I was like, “did you think you got an invitation or something and just didn’t go?” It was weird…I think sometimes people mean the best, but it just comes out wrong…

i think every girl in a long term relationship feels this way. don’t feel bad about yourself. on the other hand, keep in mind that you are lucky enough to have a man in your life that you want to marry. I dated my SO for over 5 years before an engagement but the great thing is that i am 100% sure and MORE than ready, which I bet you are too! 🙂 every girl gets impatient!

I have those same feelings somedays.. its very hard. 5 friends of mine have gotten engaged in the past two months and everytime I see another It feels like the knife is digging a bit deeper. But then I think of my SO and how much I love him and how great life will be once we are finally engaged and I try and keep that in the forefront of my mind. I know its hard hun, but hang in there.

Get over it! Kidding! I would try and take that friend’s comment as a compliment. It is not that you should be married by now, but perhaps she is acknowledging that you have a wonderful relationship with your Boyfriend or Best Friend that she believes will result in marriage. Don’t worry, your time will come and when it does it will be amazing. You are lucky to have a person in that you want to spend the rest of your life with. Stay strong lady!
