I’m sorry you the universe is being so cruel to you right now! It really can be a bitch, yeah?

I’ve also noticed that often times, when something’s got to give, something will. So, right when you’re about to lose it, the universe gives you something to help you along and keep you going! Just remember that!

I totally agree with Tunacupcakes, it always seems like the universe gives us just what we need right when we’re about to freaking crack!  I got to the point you were at and my SO could tell I was getting antsy and he said “you’re getting to ultimatum stage soon huh?”  I said no, not ultimatum, but something’s got to change and he asked me for my timeline.  In my head I thought 12 months, but figured I should low-ball it because 12 leaves so much room.  I said 8 months and he shocked me totally and agreed it was reasonable for him!!  I highly recommend something like that.  I was completely surprised because a mere 5 months before that, he was nowhere (and I mean nowhere) near engagement being something to talk about.  Your SO may surprise you just like mine did.

The universe is kicking me in the shins lately too. Blegh! it gets so hard and so frustrating and the guys just never seem to get it. I can’t give much advice but I can commiserate. Shits hard! I was hoping by May and now I’m not so sure. If I had to wait until Christmas I think I’d have an emotional breakdown. Stay strong and know were all going through it and so many others have already gone through it.

Hugs hugs hugs. Jealousy sucks.


My fiance’s younger brother got engaged after we were supposed to already be engaged and their wedding is this month!

I’m glad he did propose before then…

but I understand the jealousy. It will pass. Let yoursefl wallow in it, but don’t talk about it to people you know, so then they can’t bring it up later.


Treat yourself to something you like (bubble bath, pretty hike, new shirt, whatever).

No worries.

Aww *hugs* I’m sorry the world is being so cruel right now. I feel the same way sometimes and it sucks big time. I hope the two of you that can come up with a timeline you are both happy with. He may even surprise you with an earlier timeline than what you were thinking. Good luck and let us know how it goes.
