You ever heard the term “always a bridesmaid, never a bride?”
It’s a sort of self-pitying lament that though you’re always close to love, you never quite find it yourself.
However, I think in terms of real gut punch it would pale in comparison to something like “always engaged, never married.” That one doesn’t quite have the wordplay of the more conventional idiom, but imagine how frustrating it would actually be to keep living that.
Well, these people don’t have to imagine. Here are ten anonymous confessions from people who are, for one reason or another, just perpetually pre-married.
10. Five to zero
Maybe you’ll be lucky in cards, have you tried that?
9. Didn’t work out
Hey, I never work out and I’m ok. So far.
8. Indecent proposals
Were any of them particularly good though? How would you rank them all? I have so many questions.
7. Lonely forever
Hey, some of us have never even gotten that far.
6. It’s a sign
Signs are overrated, live your life.
5. Teenage dream
Whoa. WHOA whoa whoa. Slow down, kid.
4. Didn’t love them enough
It’s the hardest thing to have to realize.
3. A religious experience
Guys like that are the worst.
2. The back out
What is it that causes these cycles?
Welp, there’s a new record for this particular thread.
I hope all of these folks find the love they’re looking for eventually.
Have you ever been engaged? How did it go?
Tell us about it in the comments.
