I’m feeling the same way, today.  SO many of my friends and BF’s relatives have gotten married recently, FB has just become depressing for me.  One of his cousins celebrated her first anniversary today, and as I was looking at all the ‘congrats’ posts on her FB, it reminded me that when I put up mine and BF’s anniversary on my profile last year, Boyfriend or Best Friend made me take it down because “someone might get the wrong idea” :C

Yeah.  Even though Boyfriend or Best Friend has had news and stuff lately, its interesting to see his family’s priorities.  “OMG OMG (BF’s sister) PICKED HER WEDDING DRESS!!! . . . . oh and (BF) got an internship at a prestigious law firm.”

It helps me to celebrate what I can, even if its small and private.  Boyfriend or Best Friend is pretty much a shoe-in for a really great position next fall, my business actually made 4 digits in profit this year (!), and the only fights we’ve had have been engagement/married-related, and hopefully those will go away soon?  (I found a knitting pattern for “engagement armwarmers”, its the silliest thing in the world, but I’m doing it!  They look cute anyway!)

I know how you feel – I felt like that little kids book, The Last Puppy.  

When the facebook thing was annoying, I remembered a post a friend of mine made that always made me smile

“my friends are all getting married and having babies, but Im still too busy BEING AWESOME”

@UsagiTsukino: He made you take it down??? Even when I get married, our anniversary that we have now will always be our true anniversary. We’ve celebrated it for so long!

I can sympathize! Just found out a Friend is getting married to a fella she has known 7 weeks! And we are fast approaching 7 years with no official engagement yet! Oh well 🙂

@VickyAurea: It still is our anniversary, he just didn’t want his family members (who are kind of FB-obsessed) to see a notice of “Its (UsagiTsukino) and (her BF)’s anniversary today!” and think that we got secretly married or something.  You’d think that the fact that its in 2003, when we were MINORS would be enough of a hint!

Totally feel your pain. I have been to 2 weddings recently and had 2 of my cousins get engaged within the month. I am going crazy! Hang in there.

I know how you feel, but please know that your life is not insignificant!  Having a husband and babies does not make one’s life significant.  Just live and enjoy your life and I swear that good things will come your way when the time is right!

I totally understand because I was there. Just remember that a ring on your finger or a baby in the belly does not equal perfect life or even more interesting life. And that was just one bad day, I’m sure you aren’t forced into a room of all women who are married and pregnant on a daily basis.

Who cares if they will be there to celebrate with you?  If they aren’t happy for you and can’t take time out of their busy schedules for you, then they aren’t your friends.  And if they really don’t show up?  Well, who cares because you will be marrying your husband and that is really all that matters.

You are young.  Things will happen for you.  Don’t rush it.  This isn’t your time yet and that’s ok.  I was a late bloomer and I spent way too many nights crying about being lonely.  Once I started to accept that I was single and that that was ok, my life turned around.  It gave me time to figure out what *I* wanted.  When I finally found someone, all my friends were there to wish us well. 

Don’t worry!
