Yet another post complaining about Facebook problems. . .
My SO and I went to a family party over the weekend, at which my cousin took some really cute photos of us– she was taking pictures of everyone in a “photobooth” thing she had set up. So, she puts the pics on Facebook and my SO and I both get tagged in them. This evening, I get to my computer and see various notifications about comments on the pictures. I look, and, guess what– my SO’s smartass friend had said, “nice engagement photos!” (I’m sure as a joke). Then, an old teacher/friend of my SO’s, not knowing that it was a joke, said, “great photo!! E, are you engaged????”
My SO’s response to his smartass friend’s comment was, “wise guy! It is a nice photo though.”
ARRGGHHH!!!! And I was DOING SO WELL and not fussing about waiting!!!! EEERRRGGHH. Poop. Seemingly engagement is far from my SO’s mind right now. . . I hate Facebook! It sucks!

@Alaric2012: Ugh, I think watching wedding movies might make me feel worse. I did just start a Pinterest account to accumulate all my dream things in. . . I wish things were not so up in the air right now! I’m in grad school and he’s starting various new business ventures and his car just died, so he has to get a new one. . . needless to say he won’t feel like thinking about getting engaged anytime soon.
In my head I know that this is not the right time– we have to see how things go for at least my first year in grad school, and he needs to feel less nervous about his finances (though they’re perfectly solid, in my opinion :P), and my parents need to be a bit more positive about him. . . so many annoying things in the way. BUT they don’t stop me from thinking about being married to him, even with all these distractions! I can’t tell what HE thinks really. . . I think he wants to be with me, but he’s a disgustingly cautious person so he hasn’t seriously said anything that sounds like “yes, I do want to be with you FOREVER.” He’s said things that have me pretty well convinced that’s the case, but there’s still that slight ambiguity. Ugh. Sometimes I wonder if he actually thinks I’m the right woman. 🙁 I hate how doubt creeps in after a while. . .
