That was an asshole move on her part…don’t let it get you down.  My mom always said, “never trust people at work with too much personal info” I guess this is why?  I’m sure your boss/friend didn’t mean anything by it, you may want to let her know that you’re really happy for her but that her comment hurt your feelings.  There is much more to you than simply “waiting” on a ring!

Ha ha ha ha. Next time tell her that you’d only be jealous if it were your SO she got engaged to.

Very tactless on her part. She should be the one embarassed, not you.

@purpledaisies:  I wouldn’t say anything to your SO. Since you’re really ‘waiting’ on him, it’s just gonna make him feel guilty and pressured.

Especially if you mention how lovely the proposal was and how gorgeous her ring is- you don’t want to make him feel inadequate!

Ouch!  I’m sorry about that, it must have really stung. I’m sure they must not have realized how insensitive the comment was. Either that or she witch. 

your time will come. Hang in there 🙂

Ouch that’s rough.  I’m sure she meant it in a kidding way would feel terrible if she knew it hurt you, but it still sucks.  If it were me I wouldn’t bring it up to her or your SO, just be the bigger person and let it go (way easier said than done). 

If it does come up again then totally use that cute comeback that @makemake:  suggested.

UGH!  I’m sorry this happened — how annoying, is it so hard to believe you could be genuinely happy for people??  But I agree,  I would keep your personal and private info out of the work place from now on!

I think she just doesn’t know when to shut her trap.

I worried that a good friend of mine would feel lonely because of my engagement… it’s a natural worry if you know the person wants marriage him/her self. (And it doesn’t mean I didn’t know she’d be happy for me). But I never brought it up with her. Instead I made sure not to make a big deal out of my engagement around her.

I don’t mean to be unkind and I agree that it wasn’t a nice thing for her to say but if someone said that to me I would be- hmmm am I putting out that desperate vibe? Am I talking non stop about an engagement? I would be thinking that I gave her cause to be concerned about how I would react.

Sometimes as humans we don’t even realise that we are doing it.
