So, I have a girl friend who is super sweet and funny but COMPETITIVE as any person I’ve ever seen. Last week, she made this big deal that her and her (SO at the time) had been dating longer than me and my SO, even though we actually started dating a month before they did. She seriously kept trying to “prove me wrong” and say they were dating first lol Well, anyway, so we had a wine/chick flick night the other day, and she got me to call her SO to find out when he is proposing. She thought it would probably be around December, and she wanted him to tell me the plan so I could “approve it” even though she wanted to be surprised. He did, and I kept the secret. He said it would be at Thanksgiving. (I kept joking with her about other dates to throw her off track). In the meantime, however, she called my SO to see when HE was proposing. My SO gave her the general timeline within a few weeks ( end of October–which I am not supposed to know) and she started freaking out that I’d be engaged first (literally FREAKING OUT), although she did not even know what her SO had told me about when theirs would be. I am pretty positive she knew hers was later than Columbus Day, so she called and bugged her SO enough (they are Long Distance) so that he moved it up over a month and proposed this past weekend when he was in town!
The second he proposed, she sent me a HUGE picture of the ring! Not a picture of her and him, no words, just the RING! Which kills me, because just the week before she was telling me about how she was flirting with other guys, wanted to go out to the bars one last time, and even suggested we KISS OTHER GUYS since our SO’s are both long distance. I said, “umm no, I would never do that to Mr. Lovebug,” and her response? “Why? He’d never find out.” I said, “Yes, actually he would. Because I’d TELL him. I would never do that.”
So basically, I think she’s just engaged to be engaged. She was talking about moving far away from her SO, was irritated that he was bringing up marriage so much, and snapped at him about it just the week before. We are supposed to have lunch tomorrow, and she just texted me and said we need to keep lunch “light” because she is on a “WEDDING DIET”! WTH? She just got engaged two days ago….She has no dress to fit into yet and basically a whole year to diet. Ugh…the whole thing just drives me crazy! And I know she will gloat about being engaged first and try to make me feel bad that my SO did not propose this past weekend 🙁

@dannielle89: LOL the funny thing is she was telling me the other day that she has very few girlfriends and does not understand why because she WANTS more…I wanted to be like, well I have a couple of guesses…Like I said she is nice and smart and funny, but just kinda over the top. I also think she’ll ask me to be a BM which is fine, but I never thought of asking her to be one of mine, and I think it may get awkward once I get engaged and pick my bridal party…If she asks, I honestly dont know what I’ll say….

Oh wow. I can’t stand people like that. I knew a girl (17 years old, mind you) who had this HUGE engagement ring and literally in every single picture of herself, the ring had to be in it. On Facebook, her cover photo was the ring. She was obsessed with that ring.
Her and her fiance have since broken up and that ring is in the bottom of the lake.

What a crazy beetch! Yeah, I feel sorry for her FI. This sounds like a friend I would minimize contact with.

You two sound pretty young. Yikes.

@canarydiamond: ??? I don’t really understand your comment. First, from my post I don’t think that you can determine our ages, and secondly, why is being young an occasion for “Yikes?”Just looking for clarification.

She sounds like a real bitch. Sorry but that’s the truth. Why exactly are you still ‘friends’ with someone who obviously makes you miserable? Time to move on.

I’m wondering why you are friends with her. Well, really, sounds like a frenemy. I can’t think of a single friend in my life I have anywhere near as many negative things to say about. I think it’s time to re-evaluate this ‘friendship’ as well as your definition of friend. I made a rule years ago that I must actually LIKE my friends & not just keep them around to fill time and space. Think about this.

@canarydiamond: Like stated above I really don’t see the need for you to say that. There is nothing wrong with being a young bride and you have no clue how old they are or anything about them in general. I have a 30 year old cousin who would act like the girl she is talking about. It was unwarranted and didn’t not need to be said.

Hmm…. She sounds like a difficult person. I agree with PP that I kinda feel bad for her FI…

Wow that’s super annoying. I’m sorry you have to deal with her!!!! That’s really sad. I feel bad for her fiancé.

I don’t really get calling each others SO’s to get proposal dates. This is a little immature IMO, but to each their own I guess. Your friend definitely does sound like a winner… like PP’s have mentioned.. maybe it’s time to re-evaluate the friendship?
