That’s cute. My guy has said something to that effect before. The whole, “I thought I’d be married and having my first kid by now” number. He’s the straggler in his group of friends so I think he’s feeling left behind as well. It’s just funny because you’re totally right, they have the power to change things. You don’t like it? Do something. 🙂

“Public service announcement to all men (and women): You have the power to change your life.  Right now.  Go.” LOL! This is classic. My boyfriend keeps bringing up the fact that ALL of his friends are getting engaged and married. In fact, every single girl he has ever dated (he is fbood friends with them all) is now engaged or married. Yet, I remain ringless.

I think that can happen to guys. They suddenly realize that everyone is “growing up” around him and he’s being held back or holding himself back. Then he wants to change and starts thinking of the future. I think a lot of guys see their friends make changes and become wistful of their own lives In My Humble Opinion. 

On another note, it’s pretty cool that your boyfriend is having one of thos moments. I really hope he takes the initiative and moves on with his life to make it all he could want it. And hopefully that involves you!

@jackndiane: Don’t they realize we’re here to solve that problem for them? 🙂 Call us selfless, but we’d gladly take one for the team and get them a membership into the old married couple club. Laughing If only they’d take advantage of the opportunity. Sigh…

Some days R has a pity party:

“I have no land, no house, no wife, no kids…I feel useless.”

It breaks my heart because he just got out of the Army and he’s going through a rough transition period…and even though we’re “unofficially engaged,” I’m still like…”Uh…I’m right here.”

*waves hand*

“Did you see me yet?!”
