When you get engaged, you want your friends to be just as happy as you are. But the truth is, some of them might not be. A few of your closest pals may be just a tiny bit jealous of your new relationship status. They could be mad about losing one of their single girlfriends or your friend could be upset that you're getting married before she is. Or it could be a totally different reason that just doesn't make sense.

We've got ten tell-tale signs that she's not as happy for you as she seems.

1. She forces a smile every time you bring up your wedding.

Convinced she's jealous? If that's the case, sit down with her and have an honest conversation. Try to understand where she's coming from and then see if you can do something to help her out. If she can't bear to hear about your wedding, maybe make another friend your official wedding confidant. Or if she's insecure about not being married herself, find a way to beat that insecurity. Ask her to help you pick out reception decor because she has great style, or tell her that you love her foodie opinion and need help choosing a cake flavor.
