Not Engaged Yet

Do you know anyone "IRL" who got engaged?

Four couples I know got engaged over Christmas! My cousin (which I'm SO incredibly excited about), my former roommates brother (which I knew was coming, so that was cool), a girl I used to go to college with who's a few years older than me, and a college friend of mine.

I guess this is the age when everyone around me will start getting engaged, especially around the holidays, but I've never had so many people I know get engaged all at once, it was pretty surreal!

I got to try on my cousin's ring which was fun, and my mom brought down a big box of her jewelry on Christmas that we played with for a while :) Love the ring porn.

    A ton. And my sister engaged a guy she'd known for six months who has been engaged three other times, married once, is ten years her senior and has an 8 year old... and my sister is 22. And we (as in my entire family) found out when she changed her relationship status on Facebook. WOOOOOOOOOOOO.

  • I'm seeing engagements all over Facebook. Tis the season!

  • IRL? I'm the second to last of my friends to get engaged. Some have already been married, had a kid, gotten divorced, and are now remarried. Guess I'm a late bloomer

  • A good friend of mine got engaged Christmas night. I'm so excited for her! :) My cousin got engaged in October and I got engaged in November, so its been an engagement every month for a while now. 

    I also saw a ton of engagements on FB!
  • A saw on FB today that a guy I went to college with just proposed to his GF on Christmas.  I haven't seen him since graduation though, which has been a few years now, so I wouldn't exactly say it's completely "IRL" because obviously I won't be attending the wedding.

  • Oh, also, My younger cousin (6 months youger than me) is thinking she'll get engaged to her BF within the next year. They've been together for 3 years and they're super cute together so I'll be really excited for that too.

  • ahstillwell, that's awful!! A friend of mine has an older brother who got married without the family and they found out on FB. Her mom, who is the world's sweetest woman, was devastated and is still really hurt 2 years later.

    Do you think they'll actually get married or will this guy ditch like the last 3 times?

    YAAAAAY!!!

  • Yeah, I have a story like you OP. My cousin started dating a guy in August or September (of this year) and they are getting married in January. So they will have been together a whole 5 months by the time they get married. Guess I should add that she is 28.

    It's baby fever around here for sure. There will be 5 new babies around here in my close family by July.

    lmao why does TK hate me and make all my threads weird and not in order?

    I'd love people in my life to have more baby fever! I have a cousin who I don't really like but she has 2 little girls (1 1/2 and 3 years) and they're SO darn cute.

  • Well we got engaged in October, a friend I had growing up got engaged in November, and my grandma's husband's granddaughter (who I also grew up with) just got engaged Christmas eve. Oh and we just met a couple online who we'll be meeting soon and they just got engaged too. My mom's cousin just asked his wife to marry him (again) so they're renewing their vows after 10 years too if that counts, lol.

    As for babies, FI's BFF just found out he's going to be a dad and my cousin just found out she is too.

  • I can't imagine getting engaged after 2 months or being married after only 5 months. I also know that my mom would shoot me dead if I ever waited to let her find out on FB, lol.

  • A friend of mine from HS that got married in May posted that this was their first Christmas together.  I asked, "oh, your first married Christmas?"  And she said "no, their first Christmas ever...  Apparently they met at New Years, got engaged on Valentine's Day and were married in May, so from meeting to marriage was less than 5 months.  Sounds kind of crazy, but they seem happy so far.

    As for baby fever, my dad kept telling everyone at Christmas that I was pregnant, because he said that 'if everyone thinks I'm pregnant, then I'll have to get pregnant soon so I don't let them down'.  He was doing it jokingly, but at the same time, not really...he really wants another grandchild, even though my nephew is only 9 months old.

  • Yes this year has been crazy with engagements!  I think there's been someone almost every month since like August.  I am hoping to be the December one hehe.  It's baby fever around here too.  One of my really close friends just had a baby and another close frined is due end of January.  I think we are all trying to slam it all in since our little group is all over 30 now and finally done "having fun" LOL

  • I only know of one couple IRL that got engaged over Christmas. No baby announcements either, though I expect 2012 to be the baby year in my crew. Honestly, I expected a lot more announcements and drive-by's here, as well as IRL. Maybe I'm an old fart and everyone I know is already married:) The couple that got engaged that I know is actually a second marriage! Holy cow, I AM OLD!

    I know a girl who did something like that... she was actually engaged to guy #1 first, and January of that year I went with her to a bridal show to help plan her wedding. By the next January she had not only broken off that engagement, but was married to guy #2. Mayor of crazytown for sure.
  • Friends of SO's and mine just got married 11/11/11 and two pairs of acquaintances in our broader circle of friends are engaged.  Also, friends whose wedding we attended in 2010 just announced over Christmas that they are expecting, and a close friend of mine and her sister are both with child.  Engagements and babies galore!

    I can't see anything on my facebook page. ARG. With the new updates...I only see posts from a handful of people. I've tried to go back and put that I want to see "all posts" from people- but it doesn't seem to be working.

    St00pid facebook.

  • I've seen TONS of engagements on FB.

    Over the weekend there were AT LEAST 4 engagements of people I know pretty well. Then there's a few "how did I meet this person again" folks that got engaged.

    Also, after every engagement announcement on facebook, regardless of how well I know the couple, I usually end up facebook stalking. Innocent

    This!! It always annoys me when people aren't PW's about their lives because then there's nothing to stalk! haha

  • I only saw one FB engagement announcement over the past week. It was a guy I used to work with.

    Maybe it's because I'm a little older, but most everyone I know is already married (or has kids and doesn't want to get married). When I was 27 or 28, everyone started getting engaged.
