Why is literally every couple I know getting engaged all of the sudden!? Every two days it’s someone else! It’s driving me nuts! Just three months ago no one I knew (personally) was engaged and now there are only a few left who are not!
Augh I really wish my SO caught the marriage bug the same time they did… It really looks like I am going to be the last one to get engaged. : I know that shouldn’t bother me… but it is.

Think about it this way… once he proposes and you are into planning, they will all be done and you will have a bunch of fun stuff to plan and look forward to whereas they will watch you and wish they were back in your shoes! AND they will have some recommendations maybe for you, so they can do all the footwork and you can observe their weddings and see what you like and don’t like including vendors, locations, colors, and officiants!
I do understand it bothering you though, you are seeing people around you all excited and giddy as all heck… that sucks when you are waiting for your own ring and time to plan. Enjoy your SO, that’s all you can do :/

I had this happen to me about a month ago! After literally 5 couples we knew got engaged (or in my cousin’s case – eloped!!) I was just fed up! I told my boyfriend I was upset because I want that to be me and he was like “what, really?” silly thing hadnt been absorbing the “please lets get married soon” talk and was just talking in general about how he would really like to marry him.
Hopefully the talk did the trick but it was so hard to watch everyone else get engaged!
Just enjoy your time with your boy and the relationship you have together and the rest will follow.
