Never had that happen. But felt let down when a friend of mine got engaged after only dating her guy for a month and a half and I was with my guy for 4 years by that point.

You need to not be hanging up on your boyfriend if you expect a proposal!

Calm down, calm down!!!!!  Remember, all things happen in good time.  I know that’s not what you want to hear, but, let’s be honest, do you *really* want to share your engagement time with other couples?  Probably not.  He’ll get there!!!

We got engaged within two months of his two other cousins getting engaged, then they planned their weddings right around ours.  It was a little frustrating, but seeing as most of their family is two states away, I got over it.  Though I’m not a fan of sharing the spotlight 😉

@FutureMrs.browneyes:  Oh crap! Does your bf know you feel this way? That you want to marry him?

Maybe this will spark him to get his butt in gear and propose to you. Maybe he is waiting for something.

My mom got engaged after being with her man for only a year and a bit, and then they got married a few months later. She explained it as “we’re old, we don’t have a lot of time to  drag things out!” Whereas I had just gotten engaged to my SO after 6 years together. But we are younger and did a lot of growing up during our time together.

I don’t know if that’s your situation, all I know is that all relationships move at different speeds and that I’m sure your Boyfriend or Best Friend, if not before, now has the idea in his head and things will move along!

Oh man that sucks soooo much! The concert thing I really commend you for. I wouldn’t have kept my cool, just cause it was your song and it would’ve been special, but wow what a trooper. But now his dad?? that’s insane! Maybe the universe is trying to give you hints that you’re next? You should be so proud that you aren’t freaking out, good job!

This has happened to us kind of where his friends keep getting engaged when we’ve been with eachother wayyyy longer than all of them. And then I kept seeing celebritites getting engaged so that was annoying lol. 

When it’s people close to you getting engaged I think it’s harder to deal with just cause you have to be happy for them, and you are in reality, but at the same time you want to be that happy for yourself as well.

@FutureMrs.browneyes: Aww, he’s sweet to understand why you got upset and not be mad that you hung up on him.

I hope your time comes soon!
