I know exactly how you feel! My and my Boyfriend or Best Friend have been together for the same amount of time (2.5 years) and it seems as though everytime I go on Facebook, someone else has got engaged, or another wedding invitation arrives. Sigh. One of my friends got engaged after 6 months. It’s great news for everyone else, but when are we going to get our turn?

I think you are being an absolute saint by not saying a word. I have mentioned it to my boyfriend countless times, as well as not mentioning getting engaged for several months. It just seems as though it doesn’t matter what you do, he still keeps making you wait. 

It’s really annoying, I know, but I decided to keep waiting. After all, your man might be planning something for Valentine’s or your anniversary. When is yours? I hope your wait isn’t too long, but in the mean time, come on here to vent. Or just PM me to have a vent. It’s nice to know that I am not the only one feeling this way.

I’ve been with my Boyfriend or Best Friend for 4 years. A lot of our friends are getting engaged, and I find it best to acknowledge my jealousy briefly and move on. If I try to fight it, it seems to last longer.

Recently, our good friend proposed after a year. I’m not as jealous as I usually am. Maybe because they’ve only been together a short time?

I’ll get there when the time is right. 😀

I would have been thrilled if he had done it at 2.5 years–or even 4! I’m closing in on 7. That’s the kind of race you don’t want to win. :B

Prom is your frame of reference? High school or college?

@retreadbride: Do they even have prom in college? They certainly didn’t at mine!

I must have really missed a step in the Womens’ Movement.  What happened to women waiting until college was done, careers are in place?

the real slap in the face is when your significantly younger siblings’ friends are all getting married and having kids…and they’re all well out of college with careers in place.

What’s engagement gotta do with having a career in place? You can still get engaged and do all that. You really need a career in place if you are planning to have children because you need to support them. Even just to get married and spend on your wedding, you just need to hold down some job and have savings depending on how extravagant you want to get. But at least being engaged gives you some direction in your future. It does not cost much (unless you want it to, in which case, you gotta wait till your man can produce the results), so engagement really shouldn’t be based around career. I am sorry but have you seen the state of the economy lately? It’s bad enough not being engaged to the man you love, but to set yourself up for failure by not having a career in this economy no matter how hard you are trying, you are only making things WORSE than they have to be!

You are a blessing for not having said anything… I am not sure how I would have reacted…. I hope he see how sad this is making you and figures it out soon.
