Getting engaged (not me)

No, don't fear, ladies of The Flood (all, like, three of you), not me. Edited into title. Over Christmas, a good friend of mine got engaged. She was actually into me at one point, but alas (for her) I didn't feel the same way. Feels kinda weird now that she's going to marry another guy, but maybe that's only because they've known each other for all of 7 months. Anyway, that's another friend of mine engaged. Which means I now know at least six couples engaged in the last few years (and some before). And five of them are of my generation. That's scary. I guess I'm just getting to that age now. I mean, even if I've never been in something for more than a few months, I've certainly been a young adult for five years, and my friends are all roughly that age too, so I guess it makes sense, being in relationships for that long. Ish. The good news is, I'm not alone. Let's just hope it works. How many people do you know taking the next step? Does it (not freak you out, but just) make you realise your age when relationships and lives start to develop?

    • I never had a relationship so seeing people I went to school with having kids and such I just feel like I have failed as a man and a human being. I have no job, no gf, no kids and I feel like I have gone no where since high school, it's incredibly depressing.

        I have a few friends who are married/engaged that are roughly my age. It never really bugged me because I didn't meet most of them until they were already married/engaged. For some reason or another, most of my childhood male friends have either resigned themselves to a life of manwhoredom or foreveraloneness.

          • Growing up is frightening, I have all these questions in my head such as what will I do, will I have job, would I make enough money and will I be alone forever. Life is scary I didn't sign up for this.

            • I'm 19, so not many of my friends are getting married. Which is probably a good thing, in all honesty. I can't see any of em' (the ones who are in relationships) getting engaged for at least 2 years realistically. :-)

            • Im 23 and most of my friends are 25-30 and married. My girlfriend and I are engaged but we are waiting until we move out next january to tell her family because her dad is super over protective and never wants her to leave the nest unless she is making close to 6 figures a year or I am. Which is pretty unrealistic. Lol

            • 21 and getting engaged isn't even anywhere on my mind. Settling down with one person is not for me for a very long time.

            • Well I'm already married at 22. But I know a bunch (about 5 or 6) of my friends that have gotten engaged in the past 6 months.

                I'm taking the next step. It's horrifying, but it's a good horrifying.

                I'm 18 so the prospect of marriage is a long way off. A good mate of mine is 19 and just get engaged to his girlfriend of 4 years, asking me to be best man at his wedding next year. Feels so weird, I couldn't imagine getting married until at least my late 20s when I've settled into a career, have a home and feel like I'm ready to settle down. My girlfriend's 21 in a few months and starting her career as a teacher next year (that's going to be weird, I only left school in summer and if we're together then I'll be a 2nd year Uni student with a girlfriend who's a school teacher) so if we stay together long term I'm guessing she'd feel more ready for it than I am in a few years, so not sure what I'd do there. Don't think I could. I'd move in with a girlfriend after Uni if we've been together long enough though.

              • I went through the usual "stress about the future" when I was 16, but since then I've been feeling alright. A perk of going to college is that you have an excellent reason to not worry about getting girls for anything long term. My only major question is whether to get into something more permanent after my BS, or after graduate school.

              • It can be scary because it is a HUGE change. You're no longer in your parents home under their protection. You are now the protector and provider for another... As scary as it may be, it all gets put to rest because that person you are getting married to is your best friend! So when you finally live together, it will be different but you can do it together.
