I just got onto Facebook for the first time all weekend, and I’m shocked to see 5 couples got engaged over Labor Day! Also, 4 couples I know got married this weekend. I’m trying to be happy for them all, but I’m still a little jealous. Anyone else experiencing the same?

Yeah – I was hoping this would be the weekend, and my SO and I were at a BBQ where another girl had recently become engaged. While this girl’s father proudly touted, “Show them the rock, honey!” I had to put on my best “I”m secretly jealous by trying to be a good sport” face.

No-one I know has gotten engaged or married this weekend but the past month has been chalk full of them. So I am a tad bit jealous. I keep telling myself my time will come and it will be exciting but I definately get down on myself somedays and feel sorry for myself. Hang in there!

I am a bit jealous of all of the engagements, too. My older cousin got married the other day to her boyfriend of two years, so I was also a bit jealous of that, but I know I’m getting engaged by the end of the year, and we openly talk about wedding plans for November of 2013, so I know I should just chill. Still, it’s hard when you see other people taking steps you are clearly ready for, too. Life is not a race…at least that’s what helps me sleep at night!

A colleague from work got engaged this weekend; I’m kind of sad for myself but I’m happy for her. My SO and I are planning on getting engaged early next year, so I knew that this weekend wasn’t going to be it for me.
I feel very conflicted about the whole situation; I don’t want her life or what she’s told me about their relationship. I don’t even like her ring or her proposal story! I just feel like I’ve been waiting to find the right person and right relationship for so long (my colleague is also a couple years younger than me). I trust my SO will ask me to marry him, and he tells me often how he can’t wait to make me his wife. We’ve picked out a ring style and he’s told me on a couple occasions things I should look out for. I know he won’t ask me over a holiday and I know that he wants to ask for my parents’ blessing. I know he wants to tease me with mock proposals also, but I hope he doesn’t do that because I think it would really hurt my feelings.

@Alaric2012: You have wonderful taste in avatars…
No one I know got engaged this weekend, but I did go to a wedding. I told my SO I was going to do my best to catch the bouquet (and the bride was hoping I would too) but unfortunately it sailed waaay over my head.
