I’m so sorry you feel sad Jaxx.  I’m sure that it is coming sooner than you think it will and we are here to vent!

And you aren’t the hippopotamus!

((HUGS)) rest assured we’re here. i burst into tears a few months ago when i learned that ALL of my former classmates were married 😀 ALL OF THEM! I was like OMG… I think if I would have stayed in TN and not gone away for college perhaps that would have been me except it would have been to the wrong person.


our times will come too.. soon enough this time will seem but a distant memory

I feel the same way. My anniversary, 1 year, was Friday and I was hoping for it, but it didn’t come. I felt awful, even worse when I saw how many women got engaged on my anniversary weekend. Maybe this will be over soon. I can’t be on the girlfriend list forever.

I am distracting myself with buying a house, so that helps!

I feel the same way, too, especially after C told me that it wouldn’t be until after our cruise in January (even though I told him a while ago that my dream proposal would be a Christmas one). I hope it happens for you soon! I know it can be hard to see so many other people get engaged, even if you’re happy for them.

Fear not!  It will happen in all due time.

In the meanwhile, focus on the NOW.  I mean the happy parts now.  If there’s too much focus on why you aren’t, or on things lacking, your relationship might suffer thus leading to no engagement!

I seriously decided to not mention it at all.  It worked.  I had a blast this whole entire year and we did amazing things and it all culminated this month with us finally getting engaged.

Try it.  I swear it works!  And it is also a way to take pressure off of things.  Guys do get pressured and I know that the whole time I had felt wierd about this (first few months of 2009) T was actually paying off the ring.  It took him until November btw.

Ugh…I know how you feel. I was dreading all the holiday parties for the single reason that I knew many people who were recently engaged and I wasn’t. (Plus all the people asking me if I was getting a ring for Christmas. Which no…I am not.)

The worst was one party where we knew the host but no one else. When we entered the host introduced us to everyone by saying: “Hey guys, this is Hisfirstname Hislastname and Taylor…uhhh….not Hislastname though.”

Gee…thanks for the reminder. :
