@MisfitPrincess: I’m sorry you’re having such a difficult time! I’ve read a couple of your past posts and it sounds like a frustrating situation. It sounds like you’re keeping yourself busy with other things right now which is probably a good idea. Maybe sometime in the new year you can bring it up again?

@MisfitPrincess: I laughed at this: female “Good Luck Chuck”

I feel like it’s been forever since you posted too!  I know this is easier said than done, but you don’t need to compare yourself to anyone. You’ve lived your own life and it seems like most of the time you’re very in touch with that. I get that you’re frustrated at the moment and good for you for sticking to the Christmas challenge! Less than 2 weeks to go!

@MisfitPrincess:hiii!!! nice to hear from you!

I know exactly how you feel…a couple of months ago, one of my very very best friends got engaged and i took the blow exactly the way you´re taking yours. My relationship with my SO is way older than her relationship with her fiance, so i know how that can hurt. It´s not always clear why some relationships need much more time than others to take that extra step….but i believe the more you´ve been with the guy, the more you get to know him, and better chances of survival for the marriage. Fortunately for everyone, NO TWO RELATIONSHIPS ARE EVER THE SAME so there´s never a way to compare what YOU have with whatever anyone else has.

I have to say though CONGRATULATIONS FOR STAING TRUE TO THE CHRISTMAS CHALLENGE I have to admit (sadly) that when i went through that i made a mess of my relationship…it only got me to fight with the person i love the most in this whole world and that kind of fighting never has a winner.

i´m glad i´m past all that =) if you ever need someone to talk to, i´m right here!

Aw!  All my exes who are married, married the girl they dated right after me also!  I thought I was the only woman in that boat!  LOL!

Good job on taking care of yourself!  I just finished up my class, so am taking a few days off to recover and also get some Christmas gifts made, but I’m totally going to try going to the gym or a yoga class more often!  I’m super busy when school is in session, but I’m going to try carving out more regular work-out time.

I know it hurts a lot when other people you know are getting engaged or married when you are totally just as good (if not better!) than where they are at in life.  I hope that doesn’t come across as hurtful or snarky – I just mean that you are as deserving as the next girl.

One of my best friends from high school, who had all her ducks in a row, met a guy and married him like 7 months later.  Crazy fast!  I was super jealous that she got married before I did, but I wouldn’t want her husband for anything in the world!
