  • Wedding: September 2011

I was totally there not too long ago. We were by far the longest-dating couple in our pack. I knew our engagement was getting close–still a few months off, but close, yet all of the sudden EVERYONE started getting engaged!! Most of them had only been dating for a year, tops (one or two couples were for 2-2.5 years). I know the length shouldn’t matter, but it was just salt in the wound, considering we had been together 2-3 times longer than the others. I felt like we were so-close, yet everyone else was kind of ruining the excitement I was hoping for. I know, it sounds petty, but I was feeling very let-down, as much as I tried to be happy for everyone. 

Just know that your time WILL come, especially if you guys have talked about it already. The best part is that when your wedding does come, everyone else will already be married, so they won’t be thinking about their own at the same time.

@bellenola:  That’s too much to take for any normal girl but you’re doing great! You deserve some applause. 

My SO and I have been together for 5.5 years.  In the first 3 months of dating, he told me the cutest story bout his grandparents marrying quick, gramps would drive her all over, she didn’t know how to open doors anymore because he’s always there to do it, and stayed married all their lives.  Fast foward a few dates later, he says how we need to celebrate our 6 month anniversary. Wow!? He’s a romantic, eager beaver – never been married before, ready for half year anniversary celebrations, really? NO he’s a crazy ass.  In fact he has ruined a couple yearly anniversaries. 


Most of our friends were already married so at least I wasn’t tortured with that.  Recently he asked for us to look online and for me to show him some e rings that I really like.  Very exciting right?  Yes it is definitely.  But knowing him, he can take that info and sit on it for many months/years.
