I can’t believe you’re getting married

I still can’t believe that you’re getting married. It seems like only yesterday that we were in middle school together, and now you’re all grown up and ready to start a new chapter in your life. I’m happy for you, I am, but part of me can’t help but feel a little sad.

Happy women thinking about friend getting married

It’s been so long since we’ve seen each other. We used to be such good friends, and now it feels like we don’t even know each other anymore. I guess time just does that to people. It drags them in different directions until they eventually lose touch altogether.

I wish we could have one last conversation, just so I could tell you how much you meant to me back then. But I know that’s not possible now. You’re probably too busy with wedding preparations to bother with an old friend like me.

Still, I can’t help but think about what might have been if we had stayed in touch over the years. Maybe we would be best friends right now instead of total strangers? But then again, maybe not…things happen for a reason, and maybe our paths just weren’t supposed to cross again after all this time apart.

When I first heard that you were getting married, I admit, I was a little jealous. It just seemed like everything was working out so perfectly for you, and I was stuck in the same place I’ve always been. But then I realized how selfish that was of me, and I decided to be happy for you instead.

My thoughts on marriage and why I’m not ready for it yet:

I’m not ready for marriage because I don’t think I’m mature enough to handle the responsibilities that come with it. I’m still too young and carefree, and I want to enjoy my life without having to worry about things like bills and mortgages. Maybe someday I’ll change my mind, but for now, I’m just not ready for that kind of commitment.

I also don’t believe in the concept of “soulmates.” I think people can be perfectly happy with more than one person, and I don’t think there’s just one person out there who is perfect for me. So why get married? Why not just enjoy life and all the different people it has to offer?

Of course, I could be wrong about all of this. Maybe marriage is the best thing in the world and I’m just too scared to try it. But until I’m ready to take that leap, I guess I’ll just enjoy my single life. 🙂

A few funny memories we’ve shared together:

I remember the time we went to that amusement park together and you got so scared on the roller coaster that you screamed the whole way through. I thought it was hilarious, but you were so embarrassed that you didn’t talk to me for the rest of the day.

I also remember the time we went camping and you got bitten by a mosquito. You were so sure that you were going to die, and you made me promise to bury you in your favorite spot in the woods.

But my all-time favorite memory is when we went to that concert together and you got so drunk that you started dancing on top of the speakers. I thought the security guards were going to kick you out, but they just laughed and let you stay.

I miss those times we used to have together. Now it feels like we’re total strangers. I guess time just does that to people. It drags them in different directions until they eventually lose touch altogether.
