And I beyond thrilled for her!!! She has been waiting for about 5 or so years, has a two year old son with him, and had to watch her twin get married and have a baby in the time between her son being born and now, as well as many of her closest friends. Seeing her finally get the proposal shes wanted for so long makes me hopeful for myself! Anyone else find themselves getting really excited when someone you know who has been waiting a long time as well gets her ring?

Maybe I’m just overly positive but I am usually happy for anyone who gets engaged to someone who makes them happy. When my day comes I want everyone to be excited for us so why shouldn’t I do the same? Especially when someone really deserves it!

@lovesweetlove: very true! But I think I have an extra fondness when the girl had to wait a long time for it since I can relate!

My friend wasted six years with a loser who was just stringing her along. They broke up, she met someone else unexpectedly a few weeks later and within a year they were engaged.
However, her success doesn’t make me hopeful for myself. By replacing her uncommitted SO she got a proposal within a year… which makes me think I should give up on waiting for my SO and look for someone else 🙁
I’m totally happy for her because she was so miserable when she was waiting for her previous SO. She deserves to be happy with someone who’s serious about committing to her. But so do I 🙁
