So normally I am not the type of gal to put much into social networking. I have a facebook account that I check every few days, but I am not like obsessed. Well, my Fiance and I just got engaged yesterday. We both agreed to update our status as a way to get the word out to family and friends that we don’t talk to regularly. Well, today I got a bunch of messages congratulating me, etc. My Fiance on the other hand got some congrats, but he also had some old guy friends from high school totally giving him a hard time about “settling down” and just being overall rude and unsupportive about it. I doubt he even cares, but for some reason it really bothers me. Not that we even hang out with these friends, but still. Why say anything at all unless you have something nice to say???
Ugh…just needed to get that off my chest. Thanks for reading!!

I’m sorry, but I kind of think you’re reading too much into this. Sadly people, esp. men in my experience, are just somewhat cynical about this, but it’s generally in a “razzing” sort of way.
Don’t let it get you down.

Was the tone joking?
Otherwise, I would be kind of bothered a little bit too. At least he doesn’t care and you guys don’t hang out with them much.
Congratulations on your engagement!

Sorry, but that is just how guys communicate. It is also really hard to read tone on the internet. I am sure they were just giving him a hard time the ways guys do.

Yuck, some people have no couth. I’ve heard it all before. Its really annoying. Chances are they’re just juvenile guys, unable to find someone to settle down with. So its better to make fun of someone for being that fortunate. I wouldn’t let it bother you. Obviously your Fiance doesn’t think the same way they do, otherwise he wouldn’t of proposed. Congrats, by the way 🙂

Aw HUGS! I totally know how you feel. We’re the first in FI’s group of friends from high school to get engaged and a lot of the guys were giving him a hard time. It really bothered me at first, but then it was like why do I care what you think? The only reason you would give someone a hard time for getting married is if you’re not happy with yourself. Telling myself that helped me 🙂
-Good Luck and congrats!

I wouldn’t get upset about it. Seems like a normal reaction from single guy friends. Our engagements aren’t that excting to everyone.

I have no idea why guys do that, but it is SOOO annoying. I would try to brush it off

Guys do that all the time! It is normal male behavior sadly. Sometimes they are just teasing and sometimes, they are actually sad about their own lives. So don’t let it get to you. It’s really their problem that they think that way, not yours.
