Woman Promotes Not Being Engaged By Posting Pics Of Her Hand Without A Ring (57 Pics)

We talk a lot about timelines — when you should get your education, where you should be in your career, how old you have to be when you get married, and the age when it’s OK to start having children. We feel the pressure to not only have these things, but when to have them as well. One Instagram account, however, is rejecting these constraints with style. And humor. ‘Not Engaged‘ is dedicated to one woman’s ringless left hand traveling to places and events while using the hashtag #blessed. And she’s not alone. The account already has over 103k followers who call her ‘Queen’ and enjoy every step of her journeys.

When ur not engaged and u wrote a lil birthday poem: ‘twas the night of ur bday and all through the kitchen, all ur dishes were clean, lol no guy helped pitch in.

ur presents were wrapped all cute with such care, by empowering folks who have always been there.

ur home was in order, just how u like. because u knew better than to go out with mike (i mean he insisted on neon plastic cubes for a side table, what is he insane? it’s not sustainable. but i digress…) now chickpeas! go travel! go invest! go explore! go buy ur own place! go build ur own store!

i can’t thank u enough for following along. even jenna from accounting is joining the throng (ugh maybe. she’s such a flake tho…) anyway thank u my dears, every woman (and man!) plz wear sunscreen, be kind, and never text dan.

xo

tacos and thanks,

Mary

When ur not engaged and ur single and it’s valentine’s day and ur gonna get chinese food and movies just like a true single this day. and honestly it’s great. cuz ur gonna take back this day for self love or roomie love or best friend love cuz love will not be hijacked by flying babies with bows and arrows just for couples. YOU HEAR ME MY SINGLE CHICKPEA ARMY!? this day is for all. u r my internet valentine. its not just for jenna in accounting with her dumb ring and her crossfit fiancée. and guess what else? u survived the holidays, u survived new years, and now u’ve survived the last dumb little war on shoving this pressure of love down ur throats for the season. now we go, onto the breach for spring and discounted candies and all the good times. Blessed love u all. happy thursday. u r important and special and the best.
