I want to know what you think. My boyfriend and I have been talking about getting engaged for awhile now. But last week things started to seem a little more serious when he suggested we look at engagement rings to get an idea of what we like. That same week, we also had casual conversations with our parents about our intention to eventually get married.
Thing is, I still don’t know WHEN he’ll propose. He said it wouldn’t be immediately after looking at rings, since he was just trying to get ideas at the time. He’s also said that he doesn’t want to have a very long engagement. We won’t be able to get married until at the earliest this coming June (9 months from now).
Yet, I found out that he told some of his friends that we’d looked at rings, which seems to suggest that it’s really been on his mind. Coincidentally (or not?) he sold some motorcycle accessories for a couple thousand dollars soon after we talked about rings.
Does this seem like he’s serious about proposing soon? Do I have a right to be excited now, finally?
Thanks for your input. I feel like I’m going crazy keeping all of these thoughts to myself!

Of course you can be excited!!!!! The fact that you both expressed the desire to marry one another is a celebration in itself!! You will get engaged, it’s just a matter of time. Be happy, celebrate!!!!!

yes he is thinkging about it! Dont get too excited about it happening anytime soon…you’ll over think it and will wait and wait and wait….and wait and be upset if it doesnt happen in the time amount you would like…he may be trying to make the proposal special so give him time..Just let yourself be surprised…Hard I know….My engagement was kinda not what I wanted/thought it would be because I found something in the mail about it and thought it was something else…Let it be a surprise!!!!

I would be SO excited if I were you! It’s clear he wants to marry you, and that’s definitely something to get excited about!

Absolutely be happy and excited and all of that. I’d say talking with the parents is a very good indicator that he’s serious 🙂

@Flowerbabe: I’m in pretty much the same position 🙂 we’ve been talking about it for aaaaages, we’ve been to look at rings, he’s meeting my best friend and my parents this month without me to ‘talk’ to them. I’m shamelessly excited, you should be too!
Hi, by the way 🙂
