@MissMonedayMrsO: It’s such a shame that you felt you couldn’t enjoy a friend’s happy day because you’re not planning one of your own, and couldn’t even attend your own sister’s proposal. I’m as frustrated as anyone else, and I get upset when others get engaged before me, but I’m not so resentful of others that I’d miss their special occasions. It isn’t their fault that my bf doesn’t want to marry me!

I’ve had three friends get engaged in the two months since SO took me into a jewelry store to browse at rings. Eff you, universe. 🙁

@Gorjuss: I am not resentful of their special day. Maybe I wasn’t clear before but I didn’t attend my boyfriend’s colleague friend’s wedding as I feel that he needs to make a committment to me. I’m over the moon for my sister completely, and sent her an engagement card and congratulated her after the fact. I just didn’t want to be asked questions all night and I feel that is my discretion. I usually see my BFF on Christmas night- she has a chronic illness and we have been friends pretty much since birth, so I went to see her as I have planned every year since I was 16. I have attended my uncles wedding this year with my family and had a fab time. I don’t want anyone to think that I am in any way resentful because I most certainly am not! Jealous yes! I was at time extremely upset at my SO and wasn’t even sure we were going to make it!

I’d say learn from their experiences and use it on your own day. We went to 3 weddings last year and now he’s put off weddings…..which waaay sucks…….
