Seems like everything worked out for the best here. You got the proposal you wanted AND you no longer have to deal with terrible and immature friends. You deal with it by moving on without toxic people in your lives.

These people were never really your friends.  Friends are happy for you whenever you get engaged. They don’t expect you to plan your life around theirs.

Your fiance did nothing wrong.  I agree with Neetch; you’re better off without toxic people like that in your lives.  Be happy with each other.  In the end, that’s what it all boils down to anyway.  If they can’t be happy for you, they aren’t good friends.

I agree with everyone that your fiance did nothing wrong.  Honestly, it gets very annoying when your friends cannot be happy for you.  Who cares who got engaged first!  Your fiance did it when he felt is was the right time.  You are definitely better off without those people if your life! CONGRATS on your recent engagement!  Be happy and I hope you have a truly wonderful wedding and life with your fiance!

That’s an unusual reversal, normally people only want to be around for the good times. These friends are clearly not true friends, be glad you know this now, so you can move on and just enjoy your lives without toxic people.

OP – you’re engaged! Celebrate that, and the purging of some toxic “friends” from your lives.

congratulations on your engagement.  your fi did nothing wrong.  your lives do not revolve around other people’s potential engagements.

if they were true friends, they would be happy for you.  they are not; so that goes to show you that they were never real friends to begin with.  just fake.

you don’t need petty, juvenille, selfish people in your life.  move forward without them and don’t look back.

@Neetch:  I completely agree- these were no friends of yours- be thankful they have left your life.

Apologize? He didn’t do anything wrong! There’s nothing to aplogize for…. The hospice thing got to me, Pedro is insensitive and should be the one to understand why he wasn’t wanted there. Your decision to want more or less of this drama should tell you what to do about all of this.

They sound ridiuclous and like crappy “friends”. I would make new friends that act like adults and actually care about the two of you.
