I used to lurk on this board, but haven't been around for a while. I re-joined The Knot as I am in a WP, so I was looking for ideas to help out the bride.
I hate to start off with a rant, but I'm not really sure how to deal with this tactfully and the smile and walk away strategy isn't really cutting it anymore as my frustration is mounting!
BF and I have been together longer than the bride and her FI, and especially lately, bride has been pressing me about when BF and I are getting engaged. Every time I see her (not an exaggeration!), she brings it up. I'm sure it comes from a good place, as in that she's happy and marrying her guy so she wants the same for me, but it's getting freakin' annoying. It wouldn't be so bad if it was once in a while, but it's every time - the last few times it's actually felt like she's trying to console me that I'm NYE. ("soon it'll be your turn")
Has anyone had this happen before? IMO even if it's from a good place, it's kind of rude, no? I could just be jaded by frustration - feel free to point it out!
