After dating long distance for two years the Boyfriend or Best Friend and I decided to move in together; which involved me leaving an amazing job and relocating to a new city 3 hours away from where I was living. Flash forward a year, I lost my job, couldn’t find a new one so I am going to start working retail again, started graduate school and am still not feeling like I fit in with the people here. My Boyfriend or Best Friend is very close to his co-workers and their wives are all very good friends. He really wants me to join their little gang and I really want to join (for him and for me).
I am not sure why, but for some reason I just can’t seem to get in sync with these women. All they talk about are their husbands, houses, babies or their plans for babies. When we do hang out, the couples are constantly asking why we aren’t engaged yet or when we are going to get married. They don’t ask me about me and didn’t even bother to ask a few nominal questions when I tried to talk about going back to school. These aren’t people I can just accept not getting along with, they are really important to my Boyfriend or Best Friend.
I’ve kinda hit a wall with this whole situation. Last night I found out that the only other non-married couple we know bought a house and he is looking for rings. While I am happy for them I’m starting to feel pretty lonely. Its hard to be in a place where people’s main interest in your is your marital status. What should I do?
Oh yea: I know we will be engaged soon and moving is not an option. His line of work is very competitive and once you are in you are in it for life.
