Hope you are all well. First time posting! Bit of a longer read. Sorry
I got engaged on the 11th of August 2023, was over the moon, taken by surprise, but it was all pretty perfect. Of course, I told family and friends as soon as I could. I’ve just noticed that some peoples reactions, have been quite odd/hurtful, and have taken me by surprise a little bit. I’ve been with my boyfriend since 2019, but we’ve actually known each other since 2015.
Can’t help feeling quite letdown and hurt by some of their reaction since the end announcement. For instance, a couple of them who have seen us all for a relationship including friends. Haven’t text anything, haven’t asked when the date might be? Haven’t checked in on any plans. Literally nothing. It’s been absolutely mute. Not a card. Not asking to meet.
I’m just quite baffled to the point where I’ve literally had to think. I done something wrong? I try not to overthink things. But hand on heart they would’ve had that for me I can guarantee you. I lost my mum suddenly and very awful circumstances in 2021. So doing this without her. Obviously is a lot of mixed emotions for me. So I would’ve thought they might have rallied together et cetera and I really stepped it up in terms of their excitement, or just generally asking things. She w would give absolutely anything to be here and witness this.
Just wondered if anyone else had the same sort of thing? And I just wondered how you manage to deal with it? I don’t think I’ll have no friends to invite by the end of this. And would they genuinely even be that bothered if they weren’t invited? Because I’m literally getting no vibes that there’s any excitement or care. Just a point out, I hate attention, I do not want presents etc , but I definitely would’ve text one of my circle of friends, and ask something about it. Any help would be greatly appreciated. X
