SO’s friend got engaged. The biggest commitment phobe he ever met. That makes 2 of his friends getting engaged in one week. This guy hasn’t been with his gf nearly as long as us, and they haven’t even moved in yet. I’ve been living with SO nearly a year. I found out via facebook at the doctor with him sitting next to me. He didn’t tell me because he knew I’d be upset. His words of comfort? “Your time will come.” WTF?! I can’t take this anymore!! The tears just keep coming.

Maybe this is the swift kick in the ass he needs to move along with his own proposal 🙂
Just remember….everyone is on their own track. Try not to be upset just because another couple gets married/engaged sooner than you. It doesnt mean that they are happier that you, or more committed!!!

Oh boy..normally I wouldn’t say this…but can you get to a bakery? Two people in one week is too much…I would go pick myself out the prettiest, fluffiest, yummiest cupcake they’ve got, find a little bistro and have a glass of champagne toasting myself and my fabulousness…SO can come, if he brings a ring!

Well, the good news is these are his friends getting engaged. Maybe this will prompt him to get with the program.

Awww…hugs. You’re actually in a good position right now because nothing gets the fire going under a guy like watching all of his peers go and take the plunge. They all do it at the same time it’s like a domino effect! 😀

@Lulume: You have to follow your bliss….and I usually find it around lovely confections and French bubbly!

OMG….I so know how your feeling….its sooo frigan frustrating to know that they been only dating for a shorter time period than you have been with your SO and then all he can say is your time will come. I always hear him say that and honestly I would get pissed off at my SO. And I would tell him I dont care anymore LOL but he knows deep downs he knows I do.

hugs! I had the same thing happen a few months ago. I cried for way to long. My So said the same thing “your time is coming soon” I know I have 3 months more of waiting but everytime the a new friend gets engaged on facebook I’m in a bad mood.

Follow Nona99’s advice! Also might help to re-read your post “I am the luckiest.” <3

@Nona99: +1 you deserve a cupcake OP.. on the bright side though, at least he knows how much you want this and care about this. I sure hope this inspires him to get his butt in gear!

Awww, *hugs*. I think we all know the feeling. I haven’t had my meltdown yet but I’m sure it’s coming.
I know it’s hard to remember, but the good news is it WILL happen. You just don’t know when. And when it does, you can make up for all that time you’ve been waiting and it will be like the waiting didn’t ever happen!
+1 the cupcakes and bubbly idea! Hang in there.

I think you should look at it at a positive because he is looking at his two friends that got engaged, one that he never would have expected so he will propose very soon.

Well at least he said your time will come… that has to mean he has been at least thinking about it.
