Oooohh yes. Since I’ve been with my guy tons of people have gotten engaged and married (most of whom have been dating far less than we have). I tried counting once but I got depressed after 10. :

And as evidence that I’m a terrible person I even get thoughts like: “They better not get engaged before I do!” I know a few couples that seem like they’re getting there–and yes they’ve all been dating less than we have…

I feel the same way. It got to the point where with each and every status or relationship update on Facebook I got more bitter and more resentful. It took a lot out of me and really effected my relationship. One day I just gave him photos of exactly what I want my ring to look like, my ring size, requested that it be made to fit a plain gold band next to it perfectly, asked him to not make me wait forever, and I let it go. I still get anxiety but now I just look at my future ring (pictures on my BlackBerry) and remind myself that it’ll happen soon. It’s hard, but it will be worth it.

2 yrs (and 2 boyfriends) ago, BOTH of my roommates got engaged within 3 wks of each other, and then bf at the time’s neightbor got engaged 2 wks after that.  I mentioned it to my boss one morning, and all he could say was “Man, I’d hate to be your boyfriend right about now…”.

Yes, I definitely think engagements come in waves=)

I’m right there with all of you!  So many of my friends have gotten engaged lately…one even last week.  It gets so depressing after a while.  The only thing I have going is the Boyfriend or Best Friend and have been looking at rings and I found a beautiful one!  Sadly he was laid off work and we are both poor. 🙁

I feel the same way!! I was JUST talking to my SO about this.  A girl we work with, who I’m friends with, has had ups and downs with her man. They have been together a year less than us. For a while he was pressuring her about marriage and as of a month ago she wasn’t ready. Now all the sudden she is and I can’t help thinking “please don’t get engaged before me”. I know I shouldn’t think it, but I do. I even told my SO that.  He said he knows that I wish I didn’t think it but that since I did, he was trying his best not to let them beat him to it.  He’s a good guy 🙂
