Literally! Ok, maybe not LITERALLY *all* of my friends. But a heck lot of them! And it makes me feel...something.
I dunno, it's weird. Don't get me wrong, I'm sooo happy for them! They're all the cutest couples, so in love, everyone knew it was only a matter of time.
But for some strange reason I get all happy and excited for them. And then feel a little like I've been punched in the stomach.
It's completely stupid, because I don't even know if I ever WANT to get married. Yet whenever I hear about friends getting engaged I can't help but feel a tiny small sadness in the pit of my stomach that it isn't me.
Like I said, ridiculous.
But it just seems like the nicest thing in the world. That someone cares about you and loves you so much that they say to the world I choose her to spend the rest of my life with.
That kind of commitment is a pretty massive compliment. To take someone for all their awesome bits but also all of their un-awesome bits and say I don't care, I like you the best. It kinda blows my mind.
Ah well. Maybe it will happen for me one day. Maybe it won't. Maybe I'll care. Maybe I won't. I still got plenty of time. No need to worry just yet.
Besides, in the mean time I get to go to a bunch of awesome weddings and cry at how lovely it all is and how much they love each other and how happy they will be.
Yeah, I always cry at weddings. Such a sap!
UPDATE: I wrote this post days ago and over the weekend I found out about ANOTHER friend who got engaged! That makes a total of 5 couples! FIVE! You see what I mean??
