So, here’s the short version of this one (I could go on for hours about how annoying this is, but I won’t do that do you, Bees):
I am not engaged yet. No, it is not a surprise to me, and I am not angry about this. My wonderful boyfriend will be graduating this year and starting an amazing job this summer. I am extremely proud of him. OBVIOUSLY, there is no money for a ring, since the job doesn’t start until this summer (and we, as a couple, are completely against borrowing money for a ring. No judgement on anybody who did, though), so OBVIOUSLY I would not expect to get engaged until the end of the summer, at the earliest. This all seems like plain common sense, correct?
WELL, let’s just say that ALL, and I mean EVERY friend of ours that was/is in a relationship got engaged over the past 3-4 months. ALL.OF.THEM. Needless to say, I am absolutely ecstatic for each and every one of them, as they are all really good friends. Those that know me, know that I love a good party, which is definitely what will happen at each of these weddings. Is there a little part of me that says “Ugh, I wish we could take that next step too!” because I can’t wait to make it official that I’m going to be spending the rest of my life with the love of my life? Sure! I can’t imagine anyone in my situation would say differently.
As you can all imagine, the new topic when all of us are together is weddings. Of course, I don’t mind talking about weddings because I feel I can learn from their wedding planning experiences, and it’s just plain exciting for everyone.
My boyfriends tells me that a few people have “joked” with him and told him that he better propose soon because “LR is dying without a ring, and she’s going to be a ring hungry bitch, if you don’t do it soon!” and “can’t you hear it in her voice when she’s talking about weddings with all the other girls? She’s totally ring hungry and jealous!”
Let me make one thing clear, I am still in school, I am realistic about when an engagement will happen, and I DON’T WANT TO BE ENGAGED AND HAVE MY WEDDING WITH EVERYONE ELSE! Whew! I said it! I want to be the last person to get engaged and get married because however selfish this may sound, I want ALL the attention on us (tehee, sorry, I said it.). All our friends are getting married within a few months of each other (two couples are getting married within two weeks of each other– um hell to the no!), and I don’t want that! Does this make me a bad person, Bees? I sure hope not!
So, EXCUSE ME, for not being ring hungry like the rest of your bridezilla fiance’s were. I know my man, and I know he can’t wait to spend the rest of his life with me, but if you say something like that to him again, I will be ANGRY!
