Clear the photo off your phone.  You can just tell your friend that you cleared a bunch of pics so you have more space if she asks.

Now – go enjoy being engaged!  Congrats!!!

I’d be really pissed off if some girl was going around saying how my Boyfriend or Best Friend is only proposing to me because she got engaged. Wouldn’t you? I don’t think that’s a very nice opinion.  Men don’t propose or get married if they don’t want to.  Your friend is a big boy he can handle himself.  Time to get back to your own life and relationship.

I’m sure you don’t know all the inner workings of their relationship like you think you do.

Yeah, delete the photo. Don’t worry about their relationship so much, enjoy your engagement! Also, 2 years is how long I dated my fiance before we got engaged – pretty standard amount of time. It’s  not really your place to decide whether someone’s been dating long enough to get married.

I know you’re just venting, but don’t let this get you down during a time you’re supposed to be happy!

@MrsWBS:  the thing is, her bf didnt’ even propose yet! So yea he’s a big boy, she’s a big girl too so if she wants to show people a ring that wasn’t even put onto her finger yet than she can pull up her own darn photo! geez…..

Isn’t it a popular opinion that you aren’t officially engaged until he actually asks?! this girl is just out of line and is really jumping the gun here. I would be embarrassed to be talking to everyone about my “engagement” before he has even asked. Yes its probably going to happen soon, but for crying out loud, wait until the man asks before bragging about it! what if god forbid he changes his mind? then what? she will have to awkwardly explain what happened. IMO it’s never wise to count your chickens before they hatch…. even when a deposit has been put down. Show that sparkly off when it’s on your finger and your FH has actually officially proposed.  

I agree with deleting the photo btw….

@AquaGrey8962:  I went through this but the difference is TT is my friend(the female) I got pissed off at first because I was looking for dresses and show them to her and all of a sudden she says girl we have to go together we picking the same dresses! huh ? we are very close and I LOVE HER but her guy havent proposed or bought a ring yet. Actually that was my first hearing about it after I got engaged. So every time I look at something she would say girl i dont want us to get the same thing. What i did is start doing it to her and she calmed down. I would pick everything she liked to show her how it feel. She dont get married until next year and still no ring, why did i have to share this with her? I said to myself! But i got over it because I love her and decided to embrass it and make it time we can spend together.

@stardustintheeyes:  while her behavior is clearly obnoxious, I still don’t see why it bothers the OP so much.  Their lives, their relationship, they can do whatever makes them happy.  I guess I just don’t get it because if someone annoys me to that level, I simply don’t spend time around them.  And since she has such an unfavorable opinion of her doormat friend, I’m not even sure why she still hangs around with him.  I understand venting and friends bug us sometimes, but also in life sometimes you have to know when it’s time to move on from a friendship.  Usually when you have such strong negative feeligns towards them (and realize you can no longer save them and they will never change) is the time to do so. It’s much healthier in the long run to put a friendship that has run its course in the past then to sit around constantly annoyed by the things that person does.

As for the picture, I would have deleted it as soon as I sent it to her since it’s not something I’d need to keep for any reason.

It sounds to me like she thrives off of other peoples attention and likes the competition. I wouldn’t even entertain that nonsense. Keep your interest and comments to a minimum and stay focus on what is important, you and your future hubby!
