She wqas probably trying to be light hearted, and make you laugh about being stuck waiting.

@LiliKitty:  Hi, I’d laugh it off, if she’s your BFF, it’s not worth a friendship over a text, in my opinion, one of my close friends got married last year, I’m still waiting waiting waiting. But, there was a post about the other side, like your last ever time of being a girlfriend, last ever time you’ll sign your maiden name, appreciate the now and remeber the grass isn’t alwasy greener on the other side…but i want it as well lol!!!!

You hint all that you want after 6 years and it isn’t like he is scared of weddings/engagements. Also, it isn’t like you are making him obligated because he clearly wants to since he talks about it to you and has been with you for 6 years. Your friend just doesn’t have to worry about waiting so isn’t being understanding.

I always wonder if this is how my friend feels when I talk to her about her upcoming engagment. We both KNOW it’s going to happen within the next few months (her and her SO want to be married in Summer of 2013, as soon as he graduates from college).

I’m just so excited for her. I wonder if that’s your friend too? Maybe she wants you to be able to take part in all the engagement and planning fun together and feel like everything she’s going to be doing for her wedding isn’t rubbing your face in not being engaged.

I always worry that my SO will ask me before our friends BF’s ask their GFs (as they’ve been dating 5+ years too). I actually told him a while ago, “Please don’t ask me until [guy friend] asks {girlfriend} to marry him.” I don’t think he will, but it’s just an idea.

So maybe she just wants you to be engaged too?

I understand completely. I’m 21 and none of my friends understand where I am in my life right now. Without the waiting boards I would unravel.
