- Wedding: April 2015
Today, a good friend of SO and I got engaged to his girlfriend (saw it on facebook of course) and they have been together for a year. I am so happy for them though! They are a really good match. Damn facebook for rubbing it in yet again!!
Trust me, you’re not alone in this. My friends are getting engaged/married left and right, and I know I don’t have much longer to wait, literally just a few months, but it can be extremely frustrating when you’ve just started to feel secure in that your moment will come and it happens for someone else.
But I must say this thread has made me think a little bit about how all of my single friends will react. Both of my roommates are single–one recenetly out of a very long term relationship–and I feel like I’ll get a pretty cold reaction on that front. Though it’s not like you can just keep it a secret to make some people happy.
It’s good to know others feel the same. I really hate seeing the young couple engagements. They are the ones that hurt the most. Getting older isn’t the best feeling and not being engaged just makes me feel even worst.
My age group is more or less done with engagements and now it’s baby mania. I’m just a waiting bee that knows my wedding will be missed by several people that will not be able to travel bc of baby or preg. I’m just glad I have by best friend and partner now to remind me that the ones who are too busy for me and my big life moments are ones I have room to let go of. Sad but truth of life. Not everyone cares about friendships after husband and babies. Just sucks I wasted so much time, energy and money being the doting maid for them.
I currently have two save the dates and two baby shower invites on my Fridge. An engagement dinner to go to on Friday and a daily FB posting of a college friend either getting engaged or having a baby. Why is it always a perfect storm of life events?
I’d say the best thing would be to think about when you’ll get to make your big engagement status update. Before, I used to think about how I’d announce it. I even thought about making my “take me off the list” post.
One girl on my facebook got engaged last year and I was super jealous! Then about 1 week before my engagement, they broke up. She “liked” my status, and I’m sure the jealousy had been reversed. You never know how all these FB relationships will turn out!
I am right along with you girl! I have been with my SO for 5 1/2 years and still waiting! Every time I open my Facebook someone else is engaged and been with theirs for 1/2 the time, it’s so frustrating and I was becoming an angry, depressed and bitter person. I knew I had to stop this and be happy! I’m constantly convincing myself to be grateful and happy I have such a wonderful man who loves and our time will come! Plus I could tell he was getting really mad at me for acting like that.
im praying for you and all the other wonderful ladies whose men can’t seem to take a freaking hint!! 🙂
