Engagement Season

It seems people around me are getting engaged a lot. Not that I'm complaining. I just didn't think I was already in that age group. Sure, there were the early-engaged ones -- those straight out of college (some in college) that I thought were advanced but are still going strong. So, I thought, those must be aberrations as they were too few and far in between.

But nowadays, it seems friends are getting couple up every other month. I know this isn't even that plenty yet, but it's far more than before. And now, I'm actually part of the engagement planning. These are people I really talk to and am friends with and hang out with and now they're very chill about it and downplaying everything, but they're talking about venues and dresses and whatnot.

And as happy as I am about all this, it also makes me wonder, will this ever happen for me? i'm not trying to be a downer and think it never will, but you can really never tell. First off, i'll need to be in a relationship, which I'm clearly not in and then I'll have to be so confident in that relationship that I'll want to spend forever with the guy, right?

I just can't see this happening to me in the foreseeable future. Not to be negative, but I can barely commit to a crush I like so this seems huge and big and WOW. So seeing my friends getting paired off and engaged is such a huge thing. How can people my age know. How can they know know that this is it?!

So i asked them. How do they know? And they said, they just do. And I don't think I can do that just yet. Trust my feelings 100% to just know that it's it. So until then, I guess I'll just have to bide my time and know my feelings more about everything. Looks like I've got lots of time to figure this out after all.

In the end, I now get to see good friends go through the dizzying preparations for their weddings. Not their sisters, but their own and I'm just happy to be there for them as they go through it all. One day, if when it comes, I'll know my feelings a bit more.
