My friends are few and far in between. I was very excited to get engaged because my finance is my best friend, but he's not one for girl drama. I have one girlfriend I talk to every day and even though I haven't known her long (only 2 years). I only know a few other people, no one I talk to regularly, but still people I consider friends. I was talking to my friend, let's call her Sue, about when my finance and I went to go look at rings and how excited I was. I told Sue I didn't know when I would get my ring but talked with her a lot about how excited I was.
My finance proposed on a Friday night. I wanted to call my parents the next morning but it was my sister's baby shower. I didn't want to steal my sister's thunder for the day so decided to wait a week till my parents arrived for their visit so I could tell them in person. I wanted to tell someone so I told Sue and sent her a picture of the ring. She casually e-mailed me the next day saying she met up with a mutual friend for lunch and showed her the picture of my ring. I was a little upset with Sue because I had planned to tell that friend (and everyone else) once I told my parents. When I told her she took away one person I would get to surprise with the news her answer was, "Right, like you were going to see her." I don't know how to respond. Just because I won't be able to see them to tell them in person any time soon, I'd still like to call them, text them, e-mail them or something, but at least be the one to tell them. I don't have many people in my life I get to tell about my engagement and was excited for each one. Am I going crazy now because I have a ring on my finger, or do I have a right to be upset that Sue is telling my other friends about my engagement before I get a chance?
