I’m supposed to go wedding dress shopping with my friend and her two friends tonight and I just don’t want to. Between the fact that I’ll be the only one without a ring, I’m feeling REALLY blah about, well, everything because of A and I’s quasi-fight last night and feeling smothered by him wanting to do lunch today, I just don’t want to. I’m SO excited for her, don’t get me wrong, but I just know that it’s going to make me SO upset later on tonight, and I’ll have to see A after the fact. If I thought for two seconds it wouldn’t make me a terrible person, I’d totally back out.
But instead I’m going to stop by Liquor Barn to pick up Champagne and some (plastic) glasses, wear my stretchy pants for dinner afterwards, and have at it.

@KMSull- I know its rough, I know b/c Ive been there (actually I think most of the waiting ladies have), but think of it this way, you score MAJOR good person karma vibes 😉
This is what I did when I was at a bridal shower in May.My friend was all dressed up, hair done and makeup done and ripping open present after present with her big ol’ sparkly ring blinding me (ugh)…I just kept smiling and txted the Boyfriend or Best Friend, telling him how jealous I was and how I wanted a bridal shower 😉 He said I would get it soon enough ( in his mind “soon” must mean years lol) and to enjoy the night. Anyways, the point is, I would just vent through txts and I felt better about the night, maybe try that?

Sounds like a plan to me but dont be too hard on yourself.

It’s rough in waiting. Deep yoga breaths and champagne; good plan.

Sounds awesome to do the champagne glasses ((HUGS)) definitely meet him afterwards, he definitely wants to cuddle with you because he know it’s hard… i bet the look on your face is heartbreaking to him and that he’s doing everything he needs to to fix it…

Sorry to hear your blah about everything ! I know how it feels…trust me…this is coming from a girl who’s three younger sibilings, too many firends to count who have all been engaged and married before her! Like Cheerful says take “deep yoga breaths”. I always try to not think about me so much and focus on their happiness…if you let it it can be contagious. Chin up love!

Welp, here I go… A tried to tell me to have a good time and I gave him the death stare. I think that was worth it! Chin up, smile on and… out the door I go!

You’re racking up major karma points right now, girl.

Good girl- you’re doing the right thing! 🙂 Try to just enjoy the time with your friends; maybe think of it as just picking out a dress instead of focusing so much on the “she’s getting married but I’m not” aspect. Good luck!

That a girl! Way to suck it up and do your part! I know it sucks, but put on a smile and pretend otherwise! Have a couple glasses before you go. And make the best of it. Secretly look for yourself and price things out! 🙂

fingers crossed that you allow yourself to have a good time! i think you’ll get good karma back – in fact, i know you will! and if being there makes you feel anything but happy, you can always pass along your sentiments to your Boyfriend or Best Friend but be constructive about it! my personal advice – i wouldn’t go too heavy on the drinks until it’s all over 🙂
