- Wedding: July 2012
I know how it can feel to have many of your friends get engaged before you, especially if you’ve been together longer than them. Something I had to remember is that every relationship is not the same. Two of my SO and my’s best friends started dating the exact same day as us. They got engaged in November and I was crushed… I was jealous and upset. Yes, I was happy for them, but I was also sad that they were engaged and I wasn’t… My boyfriend knew I was upset, got me ice cream, and we talked about it. He told me that we had the best relationship and that people he knows are jealous of it. They wish they had the comfortability and the ability to love each other for all of our faults. He told me that he had never had a best friend that he loved more and was more thankful for. Our time will come and when it does, it will be extraordinarily special.
We’ve been together for almost four years now and we’re supposed to be engaged by the end of this year, which is 2 days away. He keeps doing things (purposely) to make me think he’s going to do it because he wants me to stop trying to figure out the proposal! I have a feeling he’s doing it New Years Eve, but I’ve stopped trying to guess. He had “the talk” with my dad on Christmas Eve as well as with his grandparents. The end of the year is still on, I just am so anxious!!!
Good luck, honey. Let him get settled and reunited again with you. It’ll come!
