So, the Fiance and I have been together about 7 years. He FINALLY proposed to me the beginning of this year and everyone was all: WOOHOO! YAY! FINALLY!!
Then a *WEEK* later, my friend ZZ texted me about having brought up marriage with her boyfriend BB. She texts me with “I was just talking to BB about getting engaged. Will you come with us to look at rings?”
So… 1 week after I get engaged, she talks her boyfriend into going and looking at rings… as far as I knew, BB had no intentions on marrying ZZ. (I’ve been friends with him a lot longer than her.) He wanted her to move in first and live together for a little bit, but SHE’S TOO LAZY TO PACK BOXES. Literally. That’s the only reason she hasn’t moved in with him.
So fine, I go with her and BB. I feel awkward as hell, because I have no idea WHY they needed my help in picking out a ring. But whatever. I’m a friend, I’ll do friend-things.
So I help them decide on a ring, and BB puts down a deposit that day. I took a picture of the ring while we were at the shop, because my phone has a better camera on it, and sent it to her and BB.
And now every single time we hang out with someone, she tells ME to show them pictures of HER ring. B*tch, you have the picture on your phone too. Why do I have to show someone a picture of YOUR ring? And you aren’t even engaged yet! Chill out!
It’s driving me crazy. If I had nickel for every time someone got engaged while me and the Fiance were dating… I never used the ol’ guilt trip of “Hey Fiance, so-and-so just got engaged. WHY AREN’T WE ENGAGED YET?!?” And BB has been trying to get ZZ to move in with him for over 6 months now. She’s been too lazy to want to do it!
I’m ticked off because 1, she used me and the Fiance getting engaged to get what she wanted, therefore I feel like she stole our moment for her own use, and 2, she makes ME show people the pictures of her ring.. and he hasnt even asked her yet!
I dunno… I told you I was being ridiculous. But still. This girl pisses me off. Maybe a small part of me is upset that she “got her way” so easily, (she’s only been with him for 2 years) but another part of me is more upset that she’s pushing around BB… he’s an easy guy to run over. He doesn’t fight back. So meanwhile me and the Fiance are just watching this trainwreck happen and cringing the whole time. Another part of me just needed to vent about this. Sigh. I feel better now.
