I took a break from wedding bee because I was driving myself crazy reading all the posts about engagement and waiting. But I am back because I have to vent. As I am writing the post right now, I realize how crazy and insane it is why I am in this website and so upset.
I am sure that people saw all over the news today that Prince William and Katherine Middleton got engaged and planning a wedding for next year. They are so unrelated to me in so many levels that I can’t believe I am feeling the way I am feeling. But the first thing I thought when I saw in the news was that everybody is getting engaged except me.
For the next year or so, there is going to be so much coverage about their engagement, wedding preparations that I am going to driven crazy about it. And there is nothing I can do.
Feeling a little bit better. I have to accept that there is nothing I can do but wait.

There are always going to be people getting engaged and married, your time will come too. If you get yourself worked up over it (especially when its a celebrity couple and not even someone you know personally), your “waiting” period is going to be all that more unpleasant.

Haha I heard about that royal engagement on the radio this morning. It didn’t really make me think “everyone is getting engaged but me” as much as it made me think of engagements in general, which also brought me to wedding bee this morning. 😛
As CaitMarae said, try not to let it get you down (as hard as that can be sometimes). Your time will come. Also, just because all these people are getting engaged/married before you are doesn’t mean their relationships are stronger or better than yours. 😉

@KS240030: I thought they were already engaged. lol You live in the states. I’m sure it won’t be all over the news until the actual wedding day. You can’t let every single piece of engagement news get you down. You are going to drive yourself insane….in the membrane! (ha ha ha, I had to…I’m sorry!)

Yeah but that chick put in, like, 8+ years didn’t she? Girlfriend straight earned that ring.

Hahaha, it’s funny you mention that, because I was at the store late last night for a last minute dash-we were out of milk- and saw a tabloid with the story on it. I quickly snapped a pic with my phone and sent it to my BF’s brother’s Fiance (we’re close) with a little caption that read ‘haha, oh how I wish!’ *Backstory: she and I have a little running joke in which our SO’s are nicknamed William and Harry, with mine being Will and hers Harry. Their father’s name is Charles, mother passed away when they were young, AND they have an evil stepmother to boot, so it’s hilarious when we really get going with it. Anyway, I sent it to her, and she IMMEDIATELY text back “DON’T tease me like that! I thought at first it was your way of breaking the news” 🙁 lol, no I told her, I only wish.
@jenewitt: is it Kaity Waity, or Waity Kaity? either way, still funny

Actaully, of all the engagements announced recently, this one makes me less stressed and smile more, I guess because I don’t know them, it’s easier not to be jealous? I KNOW a girl dating a prince is going to have a super-lavish lifestyle and insane wedding that I could never dream of, so I can’t feel like worrying about it. Like super-famous people aren’t people I’m going to have to meet and play-happy-for-you-but-I’m-dying-inside with, so I can feel good that Diana’s son is going to be happy, and hope the media-rich lifestyle doesn’t ruin their relationship. (Plus, I don’t ahve cable, so if it’s not on Yahoo, I don’t hear about it – easy to avoid media hype).
My heartache come from the people I am around each week, and my mixed feelings about their happiness and my own burgeoning discontent – it’s getting easier to be fine with them in person, but when I’m alone too long I start dwelling on things and wnat to cry. Waiting sucks.

I heard about it as soon as it happened because I deal with the magazines a lot at work and saw it right away. I don’t know anything about their past together or what they are planning for the wedding and I don’t want to. Seeing a celebrity wedding just makes me depressed because I look and think, I’d love to have this or that at MY wedding…but I can’t afford a lot of things so I try to stay away from it.

haha, yeah true she waited 8 years!
OP: We can *always* find thing to make us upset if we look for them. Like if you decide in your mind that seeing people wear blue makes you feel blue (as a ridiculous example), then all of a sudden you’ll see blue EVERYWHERE and get frustrated. Try to just focus on your own relationship and on yourself, even though it’s hard sometimes to tune everyone else’s stuff out. It’s not about them. Do what you have to do to make yourself happy, regardless of what everyone else is doing. Hugs!

Hmm. Waiting 8+ years, challenging at best.
Waiting 8+ years while the whole world speculates, calls you Waity Kaity, and everyone has an opinion of why that Prince won’t put a ring on it, and still she stuck around. Down right heroic.
I’d say we pay homage to the poor girl and cross her off the list!

Waity Kaity? Wow, brutal!
Let’s cross her off the Waiting list! I guess it’d be too much to ask that the new Princess of Wales is on our waiting list huh… still, we can cross her off the list in principle!

@picturemeurs: TOTALLY. Her wait was really like, 16 years, if you account for “celebrity time.”
