so i will be letting go of the "worrying about what people might say" when we get engaged it will be because we love each other. we shouldn't let anything else be the deciding factor. =] thanks

Thanks for your responses! yea i put it off one year till i was 19-20 but with the economy the way it is my boyfriend couldn't afford a ring, once i was ready. i said we could do with out one or just use my promise ring but he's a bit old school and wants it to represent that he can take good care of me. I guess i just got a little caught up because there's a bit of rivarly between me and the other girl we're about the same age and she likes to tear me down. i do believe if i had gotten engaged first she would have demanded hers shortly follow. there was one occasion my boyfriend and i bought a new tv we had been saving for the next day she went out and had her mom buy her the exact same one.

If you want to get engaged, get engaged. You'll spend forever waiting if you're concerned about when others are getting engaged. No one is going to be more or less excited for you based on who else is engaged within a certain time of yours. The same goes for getting married. My brother & I were married, to different people, within 6 months of each other and no one was more excited at one wedding versus the other. You wouldn't have wanted them to not get engaged cause you had gotten engaged the month before, right??

Marriage happens when YOU'RE ready, not when other people are. If you and your boyfriend are more than ready, don't let someone else's engagement stop you. I guarantee your engagement isn't going to make them less happy about theirs. :)

If you wait for everyone you know to get engaged, so you don't "want it to look like we are trying to compete or steal their thunder", you'll be waiting a long time.

AND, you really should NOT be crushed that they did not wait on you! After all, you have been putting it off for years....

Do what is best for you, ...and enjoy it!

hi my boyfriend and i have been dating for four years. we've talked about marriage since year one when he gave me a promise ring because i considered myself to young for marriage[18]. now im 22. i know that he's been planning a perfect proposal and i know it was suppposed to be soon (with in the next 2 months) but recently his brother and his girlfriend decided to be engaged. now my boyfriend and i are a bit crushed. we don't want it to look like we are trying to compete or steal their thunder[although i do know they knew we were talking about getting engaged soon], but i dont want to delay it any longer. what do you think?
