You’re Allowed to Be Happy When Your Bestfriend Gets Engaged!



So your bestfriend just got engaged and you’re so happy….sort of….

Well you’re happy for them, really…but you’re still single and now you feel even more single…

Or now you feel the pressure of the “you’re next” talk, when you feel like you’re really not next at all…

Or maybe you just feel a bit envious because your boyfriend of a few years (3 and a quarter to be exact…but who’s counting?) has still yet to demonstrate any motivation for marriage…

Well my bestfriend just got engaged last summer and I don’t feel any of these typical sentiments at all!



I feel overjoyed for the happy couple!  They’re both crazy for each other, so for them to get engaged was just the natural next step!

And, well, I still get to see her and hang out…

…well she does live a bit far from me now, so maybe we don’t hang out as much as we did back in elementary school, but that’s normal…

…and she does spend most of her time with her boyfriend fiancé since they live together now, but that’s expected…

…not to say I wouldn’t like to spend more time with her…I do miss our girl time…

…hmmm, things were fun before we had boyfriends and/or fiancés

…and who needs a fiancé anyways when you have a bestfriend friend to eat junk food and go dancing with?

…and who said she could move to the other side of the country after wedding anyways?

…but at the end of the day she’s my best friend–I want her to have all the best in life and he’s the best thing that’s ever happened to her

…so as I said before, I’m really happy for her and it really is okay to be happy for your best friend when she gets engaged….right?

 

*This is a mere depiction of some of the emotions you may feel when someone close to you is getting married. In all honesty, I am really happy about my bestfriend getting engaged. She really deserves it. And no, I actually didn’t cry tears of sadness, just pure tears of joy! Check out my bestfriend’s proposal story here!
