For late 20-somethings, friends getting engaged goes from being a surprise to something expected of long-term couples. Here are the 5 stages you go through every time one of your friends gets engaged.

  1. Anger

“I had to find out on FACEBOOK?!”



2. Denial

“They can’t be getting engaged first. They’re not even together as long as us!”



3. Jealousy

“Now that they’re engaged, everyone is going to be asking when we are getting engaged….. When ARE we getting engaged?”




4. Acceptance

“They are a really great couple. They deserve to be engaged first.”



5. Excitement

“Their wedding is going to be so much fun!”
