I am at that age where all of my friends (literally even the younger ones) are getting engaged. Me and my boyfriend have a wedding every other weekend and I read about all of the engagements on Facebook.
The problem is, I have been wanting to get engaged for a while now. I truly love my boyfriend and I know he is my soulmate. I can't help but get sad when I hear from someone that they have gotten engaged. My boyfriend notices when I get sad and the other day he started talking about our wedding and how many people we would invite etc. It did cheer me up a bit but I don't want him to just be saying these things to make me feel better. I have no idea what he feels.
When we are shopping I walk past the jewelry shops and stop to look at rings but he doesn't even look at them, he ignores it.
Am I approaching this the wrong way? If your'e a guy, what does this behavior mean?

I think you are feeling what a lot of women your age feel. I'm turning 24 in a month and most of my friends are married with several kids now. I am the odd girl out, I'm the only one of my friends who has a career. I get treated like a baby by my friends because apparently despite having a job, my own car and my own place, I have no idea what life is really like in the adult world :S
I feel for you, I really do because I also get sad when I see engagements. I mean don't get me wrong, I am happy for them. I really truly am! But a tiny part of me is thinking "what's so wrong with me that I am not getting engaged also? Am I just not good enough?"
It's frustrating when you are one of the last girls of your group to get married. I'm starting to feel like it's just not going to happen for me :( I'll be the woman with all the cats. I love cats, but I want a partner.
The best thing you can do is invest in yourself. Go to the gym, read books, do things you enjoy, take a class, apply for a new job. Do something that gets you feeling good about yourself.
You may not be engaged now, but you will be married one day :) You are more attractive to a guy if you have a lot going for you.
