It’s not hard to get enagaed or married. Now if you’re looking for someone of quality then it’s worth the wait. Please do not use the women on Teen Mom or any other reality show as a comparison to your life.

I can see your point. How ridiculous. But honestly, when I look at all the Facebook drama of people I went to high school with and how they’ve been engaged several times (sometimes to the same person), married and already divorced etc I think that I’m SO lucky to have gotten engaged later (age 25) and not just on a whim with some fool, haha. I was with Fiance for 10 years before he proposed – granted, we started dating at 15, but still a long wait 🙂 Totally worth it.

@Aklove:  well she goes for the type of guy who wants to committ to her. She has money from the show and they work in hard labor low income jobs. It is like marrying oprah to them. I wouldn’t sweat it.

@Aklove:  Trust me, I find this just as annoying. I sit on the loveseat with my SO watching the show and see that not only does Leah get engaged multiple times, but that Cailynn (or Kailynn) girl have a billion boyfriends. I am sitting on pins and needles hoping my SO will propose this year, and my single fellow 29 year old BFF has a masters, a steady job, completely sane, and she’s sad that she can’t even get a date!

I honestly think it boils down to the TM2 GIRLS (not women, they are merely girls) not having very high standards for themselves and who they date. It’s kind of like the “I would rather have four quarters than 100 pennies” mentality. My BFF and I would rather have the four quarters (in the form of a higher standard guy and relationship). The TM2 girls seem happy with pennies. Look at it that way.

Another thing I do to make myself feel better is realizing that I still have a future where no one will judge me and can make an amazing professional life for myself. These girls have put their entire history out for the world to see – their lives are forever tainted by MTV.

I know it sounds like a whiny rant, but trust me – you are not the first to feel that way. But better to rant here than to your SO or your single BFFs!

haha i dont get jealous because i know they’ll divorce, but i totally know what you mean. I also just watched JWOW get engaged last night. SO is the reason I started watching stupid jersey shore. we watched the two of them start dating and now get engaged, all while I wait. I know it’s dumb, but I get the feeling I get when I see similar friends start dating and get engaged all during the time SO and I are together.

Everyone just needs to stop getting engaged until I do! Me next! hahaha

There is a post on A Practical Wedding about waiting and the author says she watched Teen Mom and was all jealous because “those girls had it all!” Totally reminded me of your post, haha!

OMG this post made my life…I seriously watch that show all the time, and while I don’t envy their situations AT ALL…it does make my waiting for my SO to propose that much harder! I thought I was the only intelligent woman who watches those garbage shows…guess not! 🙂 Watching them is definitely one of my most guilty pleasures…lol

How about watching the Bachelor? Proposing after what, 6 weeks?

@Aklove:  I don’t watch the show, but try to take solace in the fact that your current relationship is probably better than her marriage will ever be (if she ever gets there).
