Does anyone else find it challenging to have friends who are building up their hopes for a proposal when it is unlikely to happen any time soon? SO and I recently went on a holiday and a couple of my friends were talking up the holiday, telling me that he might use the holiday to propose. I thought it was unlikely but on the last day of the holidays I was just a little sad that it hadn’t happened.
Please tell me I’m not alone in this!

I am actually maddened that, during her four day visit, SO’s sister has not once asked about our status…but then, she is never married and doesn’t like books with bits in them about sex…so maybe not the right person to bring it up.
My grown daughter has grown a bit patronizing about it, “yes, yes, Mom, we all know you want to get married!” Lately a friend from work said that she doesn’t want to see me waiting around endlessly for a proposal that may never come.
Sigh. It’s hard waiting. I am trying to fill my life with more things that feed my soul (getting back connected with the media community, reading books I love, going to concerts even if he doesn’t want to go). I don’t understand what to do next except to live honestly and keep breathing. Take care.

Ah…not at the point yet where friends are hoping for it! Although my boss has asked a few times 🙂
