Hey, it’s totally normal to feel jealous or resentful. That doesn’t make you a bad person! I think most women feel that way if they have been waiting for a while or are ready to take their relationship to the next level. But yes, it WILL be you someday! And then some girl can be super jealous of your engagement and your ring and your hot finace. ๐Ÿ™‚

I feel for you. I just got engaged a few weeks ago but I was in your shoes last Christmas and I hated seeing all those status updates. Keep your head up, it will be you soon ๐Ÿ™‚

It’ll definitely be your post someday!! Christmas eve and Christmas I had quite a few great girls on my FB post about their engagements. I do get jealous of it too, because I definitely wish it was me…but I’m sure they’re just as excited as I would be.

@love108: That’s irritating.

@mermaideve: Don’t worry, it is totally normal to feel like that!  Just wait ’til EVERYONE YOU KNOW is pregnant and having babies and posting incessantly on fb.  That’s next.  ๐Ÿ˜›

Argh.  I feel awful about it…but I can’t even be at all excited when someone on facebook get engaged.  It should be me!!  Even when it’s someone I really like, I honestly cannot bring myself to say “congratulations” because I am so irritated that it’s not me.  Oh and if they have been dating for less time than me and my bf, (which is almost always the case) than I am even more annoyed.  It’s everywhere….I feel like everytime I go on FB, someone else, not me :(, is getting a dang ring!!!

One of my friends posted a couple days before Christmas. Facebook announcements always suck! Here’s to hoping it will be soon for you though!

I feel like everyday I go on Facebook and there are people posting about how they just got engaged…you just have to remember, one day that will be you and there will be people who are in the same place you are right now. We just need to be patient and we will get ours soon too! Laughing

Everyone should get to have their own time in the spotlight.  Last year it was me, getting engaged and having the wedding.  And now my twin sister gets her turn again as she’s just announced she’s pregnant with their first child.
