seven people that I know have gotten engaged this month. SEVEN. I’m very happy for them, don’t get me wrong. But I’m really feelin a little down every time I see a new “so-and-so his engaged!” post on Facebook. Especially when they’re younger than me or haven’t been in a relationship for as long as my boyfriend and I! It drives me a little nuts.
granted, we’re still “young”- in our early 20’s- and we’ve agreed not to get engaged until I finish school (next year). But we’ll have been together for 5 years on our dating anniversary in a couple weeks, and I guess it just kinda makes me sad when I’m seeing all these lovely girls getting engaged and here we are going on year #5 of dating. I know it has nothing to do with me not being “good enough” but my mind can’t help but go there sometimes.
I don’t really need anyone to explain to me how I’m only 23 and shouldn’t be jealous of others getting engaged. I know. Trust me. I just need to know if anyone else out there is in the same boat!
Is September the month to get engaged or something?? Because it sure as hell feels like it! Lol. Surely I can’t be the only one who gets a little antsy seeing engagement posts! Probably gonna be another 2 years or so before any engagements happen over in this boat, unfortunately. I guess I better get used to seeing every other person around me celebrating that moment with their loved one for the next two years! Sigh…
