With the weekend fast approaching, here comes a day I have been dreading for a while: my high school reunion! I am looking forward to catching up with my old school friends – who I see fairly regularly, but I am absolutely dreading seeing the people I wasn’t that close to and the inevitable “so are you married/engaged/seeing someone” type questions.
So… for anyone who has been through this as a waiting girl, how did you deal with 50 people asking you if you are married yet?

I haven’t been in this situation, I never got a high school reunion 🙁 Darling Husband did and I remember it was at a time when we were talking about getting engaged but not sure and things were a bit rocky. Probably wasn’t easy for him but it seems easier for men than women!
I would probably just try to remember that EVERYONE will be worried about something coming up to the reunion – whether they got fat or ugly or divorced or had kids too early or too late or haven’t achieved anything yet etc etc. You will not be the only one! You should also watch Romy & Michele’s High School Reunion, preferably with an old school friend who is going to the reunion with you 🙂
If people ask about your romantic life, just gush something adoring about your boyfriend and how much you love him and the life you’ve got together. It will sound sincere and real and the person will probably be jealous whether they’re married or not 🙂

Wow – mountainbride’s advice is PERFECT. Everyone is going to be worried about something – those married/with kids will try to make it sound like it’s all sunshine and lollipops to compensate for feeling bad about their careers/bodies/etc. I went to my reunion a few years ago and was worried about the same thing, and it ended up being really fun.. people were way nicer and less competative than they were in high school. 🙂

you guys were so right! I was surprised by how much it didnt bother me. Sure, I got asked a fair bit about what I was up to and whether I was married but apart from those who are married already, there were quite a few girls in long relationships who were still waiting.
