I made it through Christmas without any engagement announcements but that was because everyone wanted to wait for the new year- I had about 4 engagement announcements and 2 weddings on my facebook.
Talk about emotional overload… I hate waiting…

I totally understand, I got a little sad last year even though I wasn’t ready yet then. Seeing it happen for everyone around you can be tough. One thing I would try to think about is that you want your own time to celebrate and feel special, which will be easier when its not near the holidays when so many people get engaged. When you’re waiting, all you want is to be engaged but it will definitely be better if you get your own time to shine.

It’s so much more difficult when its everywhere, constantly reminding us. Hopefully it’ll lessen and then disappear for a while after Valentine’s Day.

I am so annoyed and I didn’t think I would be. I was hoping to come into the new year with a ring or at least a proposal. Nothing. Maybe I should be happy that he’s encouraging me to plan the wedding but he doesn’t want me to tell people yet. It sounds so silly to have a date but no formal proposal. How much longer am I expected to wait. Now his friend is getting engaged and has already bought the ring but just has to pop the question. I am so fed up with the damn waiting.

Yeah I know I had around 3 friend engagements that happened in a two week span before and I was definitely not happy and green with envy. I poked my boyfriend a couple times to remind him, and he noticed but didn’t do anything. Like you said, it would be better to do it at your own time and have your moment to shine so you aren’t blended in with everyone else.

I really don’t care about being blended with everyone else- I just want it to happen. I just don’t want to be waiting anymore.
