Ok bees, it’s almost three months since the ring purchase.
Now, I feel like all around me there is talk of wedding, marriage, enagagement (or lack thereof). EVERYONE is talking about how their boyfriend won’t propose or when MY boyfriend will propose. I feel like everytime I turn on the radio someone is talking about why their boyfriend wont propose.
Is it just me? Is it just that I am focusing so much on it and wondering so much about when? or are other bees hearing the same?
Please help me stay sane.

When I started to shop for a house – I started to notice Real Estate Agent ads and mortgage financing plans EVERYWHERE! I’m sure they were there before, I just didn’t care! I’m sure you’re just noticing it more. And I’m sure your friends & coworkers who are around the same age are also in the same situation as you, so its amplified.

Oh I know what you mean! It seems like every weekend another friend is getting engaged and another is getting married. Every Monday morning my facebook feed is full of pictures from the previous weekend’s proposals and weddings! It seems like once you reach 25 BAM! you get hit with marriage pressure!

Try being in your thrities. My facebook feed is clogged up with baby pictures. When you’re 32 and waiting for a proposal, it’s pure torture!

Yes. It seems like everyone is getting engaged! I agree that it’s amplified once you start focusing on it.
And (haha this is priceless) during one of our talk my Boyfriend or Best Friend says “who thinks about getting engaged when they’ve only been together a year?” and just the previous week one of HIS FRIENDS got the ring made to propose to his girlfriend of a year!!! AARGH.

@brittanymichelle: Yup! I just said “what about your friends…?” and gave him the example.
I don’t want to wait forever, but also getting married and combining lives is such a huge undertaking and very stressful. I wouldn’t want someone who wasn’t ready for that.
