So, on Monday one of my friends came back from a Mexican vacation with her boyfriend and told me she was engaged, today I found out a guy at work got engaged. Now the icing on the cake…….
There is this lady that works in my building. She doesn’t know I have a boyfriend. She sees me just now and says oh can I talk to you? I’m like sure. She says I have this guy that I know that I really want to set you up with. I said really? She says yes, she says I see that ur not married or engaged and ur really pretty so I told this guy about u. I said so tell me about him. So she says he works on wall street and is in his early 30’s and single and no children. So I started laughing and she says what? And I said no I have a boyfriend of 6 years and we live together. And she says oh well honey I’m sorry. I said no don’t b sorry I never told u. She says no I’m sorry because after 6 years u aren’t married I don’t think you will ever get married!!!!
I have to admit this hasn’t been my best week…….
Just needed to vent.

How rude!!! I’ve been with my SO for 11 years and no one has been that rude to me about it. It’s none of their business!! Everyones relationship is different and I know several couple who have choosen not to marry. What does she have to say about that? Ha!! Sorry your week is not going well. Hope it gets better soon!!

Wow – if it makes you feel any better when I was just out of high school it came out at the department store I worked in that I was still a virgin at 18 (stayed one till 22). After some pretty light joking about it, one lady felt she needed to tell me to make sure I didn’t “have any cobwebs in there”. At work. In front of other people. O_o I think I could hear crickets somewhere, chirping.
6 years is not the kiss of death to your chances for marraige, especially depending on the age you started dating. Of my friends who are married, one couple got married at 7 years, another just did at 11, granted, I’m still wating at longer than that, but our situation is kinda odd. Whne he’s ready, it happens. It’s hard not to compare yourself to others, and not to be reminded you’re waiting when a lot of others are getting to the altar, but it’s not a race, it’s your life.

That last part was extremely rude of her. That’s something she should have kept to herself. It’s none of her business anyway.

I agree with PP’s, it is none of her business and rude of her to say anything at all. My SO and I have been together for 6 years as well but luckily we haven’t had anyone really say anything other than our families asking when we are going to get engaged lol Hang in there, hopefully it happens soon. *hugs*
