**Disclaimer - I'm home from work today because I pulled a muscle in my neck and I'm taking some heavy duty pain meds. If the following post sounds like the ramblings of an intoxicated person, it's because that's sort of what I am right now!**
Were you the first out of your group of friends to get married? If so, did you feel uncomfortable talking about your wedding with them?
I was the first and I never felt comfortable talking about it. Ever. In fact, I made it a point to only talk about it if someone asked me a question...which hardly ever happened. I really didn't want to be "that girl" who talked nonstop about her wedding, especially since a lot of my friends were single at the time.
Now 2 of my friends are engaged and that's all we talk about. It seems like everyone else is so excited for them and they actually want to know about their plans. Meanwhile, 2 years ago no one cared. They were more interested in going out and hooking up. This sounds bratty, but it hurts my feelings. I felt like I had no support back then. Granted, over the last 2 years most of my friends have "settled down" quite a bit and the majority of them are in serious relationships. I get that timing is a big factor and I shouldn't let it bug me. But it does. And the icing on the cake is now I feel like I can't talk about my house because we're constantly talking about weddings! Sigh.
OK, vent over.
