I know the feeling. I am in the EXACT same position. Friends around me getting engaged and having babies, just over 7 1/2 yrs together and an end of year promise. 

I know it’s hard but try and stay strong. I haven’t been doing this very much recently but the bee helps 🙂

I think we all have those days that we just have had too much, and we want to put our ‘rational’ selves aside and give in to the little jealous person inside of you.  I know I do from time to time.  It’s very difficult when you see people around you that are still so young in their relationship (dating a year, or even less) moving forward and getting married when you are 8 years in and feel like you aren’t going anywhere.  I also find it difficult not to have a little internal ‘tantrum’ when I learn of someone’s engagement if that person has a horrible or boring personality, cheats, is spoiled, any number of character flaws, lol!  It’s probably a little mean and immature, but it’s true!

I can relate to MisfitPrincesss’s description of an “internal tantrum.”  I hate the feelings of resentment and “why not me.”  And then I beat myself up for my inability to be happy for others’ engagements/weddings without having a mental pity party.  I usually feel a lot better after a day or two.  Hang in there, some moments are really tough!

I totally understand. I’ve been with my SO for just over 7 years and it has gotten to me really badly sometimes too, expecially when the couple has not been together that long. When my cousin got engaged to his Girlfriend at two years and we were on 5 1/2, it hurt like crazy and made me have all sorts of “Why not me? What’s wrong with me?” thoughts.

@misfitprincess: I think we all those internal tantrums and it’s normal to feel that way. I also love having the Bee because I can commiserate with all you wonderful ladies and offer encouragement when others are down.

@DustyRose:  It’s rough when something like that strikes a cord.  Kudos to you for staying strong, especially with your friend announcing her engagement!
