I am currently awaiting a proposal from my SO. We moved in together a few months ago and he had said he wanted to be engaged by June. I was ecstatic with this timeline because honestly I didn’t expect that, I was just so happy to live with him. But now I am over joyed and maybe even excessively excited, knowing any day now he could be down on one knee! (Here’s to hoping that moving in didn’t make him too comfortable and forget all about marriage- haha)
here’s the thing. It’s not a huge deal but I have a very close friend who I know will be really jealous and angry when we get engaged. She has said on multiple occasions “you better not get a ring before me”. I used to take it light heartedly but now I’m almost afraid our friendship will be ruined. She’s the kind of girl who mentions engagement and marriage atleast 10 times a day, as well as publicly embarrassing her SO about it everytime we are out together. She even posts things on social media sites complaining about not having a ring.
her Boyfriend or Best Friend and my Boyfriend or Best Friend are best friends since they were babies, and he will most definitely be the best man at our future wedding. with all of her comments and threats, she makes me feel like I’m in a race! when we moved in together, she said “you’re not getting engaged are you? Me and SO aren’t moving in together until he gets me my ring”. Has anyone ever dealt with a friend like this? Any tips to keep the jealousy at bay? i love her and I want to share this excitement, not hide it!
