All my friends are engaged.

I'm single. All of my friends are not.

They are about to be married for time and all eternity. I am about to graduate and move back in with my parents.

The friends I am talking about are the ones that I have known close to 10 years. They are considered my family.

I'm in a weird place with them. Most of the commonalities we used to share are rapidly disappearing as we move to different places in our lives (figuratively and literally).

Things change when your friends get married. Social scenarios that would have been previously been deemed okay, are now wildly inappropriate when you are engaged/married.

What?  Me and him can't joke about being shirtless anymore? Weird.
What? I have to hang out with you AND your finance at all times now? Even weirder.

So it is understandable that when one of my friends tells me that they are engaged behind all of the congratulating and excitement all I really hear from them is:

You have approximately two months to get all of your friend time in with me before our friendship becomes an acquaintanceship and you are basically considered dead to me.

Here's to being a forever in the waiting room of the temple bridesmaid.

Welcome to my life.

  1. Well, at first it's bliss on the flip side of that token--like when I got married and my best bros faded from the scene and there was only... HER. But WAIT! There IS hope, dear sister!

    When the afterglow of the honeymoon wares off and the spouse-y starts full-time work/school, the craving for socialialty returns and in no time your married friends will be sending random texts and making surprise calls, and you'll be totally creeped out, like:

    "What the M. Night Shamalyan is goin' on?!? Is this like a techno-seance or something... I though you were all DEAD!"
