The Only Single Person at the Wedding
You know it’s coming. You love your friend and (hopefully) their long-term partner. You – along with the rest of Facebook – saw the engagement ring photos, which will remain on the top of your feed for the next month while every single person they know insists on posting a comment of heart emojis.
