I feel like the pressure definitely started to be on in our group about two years ago. Our core group of friends has six couples and a few other single friends. Two years ago Couple #1 got engaged. Just shortly after couple #2 got engaged and had a quick wedding when they found out they were pregnant. The following year Fiance & I(Couple #3) got engaged and just to weeks later Couple #4 got engaged. This past summer couple #5 got engaged and just last week (Dec.24) Couple #6 rounding our group off. Crazy huh!?

I think some of it has to do with our age, but I do also believe that pressure from your social circle does exist. “John” from Couple #6 told Fiance and I that he was thinking about proposing and would possibly do it after our Destination Wedding wedding in April. He just proposed last week though because he got a nice Christmas bonus and didn’t want to make his poor gf wait any longer (she’s a Bridesmaid or Best Man in two of the other weddings). Now our group is one big wedding crazed group lol. I think Couple #2’s wedding is what set off the rest of us. I know I couldn’t stop gushing about how much I’d love to get married. I guess the boys got the hint..lol.

not many around us is engaged- I see it on the social forums I am on but many of the people I know are content with living as GF/BF so it isn’t in my face as much

@yellowlinedpage: Oh we waited don’t worry 😉 I think it takes a long time for most men to get the hint. In our case it happened and then was like a domino effect lol.
