My SO and I have been together for 3 years, and have lived together for a year and a half. For the past yearish we’ve been talking about marriage and the future, but hadn’t made any concrete plans other than that we would get married before we left the state next fall.
Recently he gave me the okay to look at rings. At first he seemed a little annoyed almost when I would show him rings and tell him what I liked, but his attitude has slowly changed. Recently we decided to choose a ring together, and then he can buy it whenever he wants and do his thing when he is ready. Well ever since “shit got serious” if you will (excuse my french) he has been acting different. Different in a good way. He constantly tells me he loves me, and he is way more attentive to me. He talks about how he is excited to marry me (which he used to just never bring it up) and how much he loves me. He’s also way more sexually active and sweet to me during all of that as well.
Obviously I know a proposal is coming in the nearish future because we picked out a ring and ordered the stone already, but I’m just wondering:
Did anybody else notice a significant change in their SO’s behavior or attitude for the better shortly before a proposal was coming, or know a proposal was coming BECAUSE of this kind of change in behavior?
Don’t get me wrong, things have always been GREAT between us, but lately they have just been so much better!

We didn’t really have a proposal it was more a mutual decision, but everytime we do something concrete for the wedding planning FI gets super lovey dovey.

Yup, when Men make up their mind that YOU ARE THE ONE
And Marriage is what they want, they very very much change
As the old saying goes… they’ll move heaven & earth to be with the women they love
Lol, many a woman has said that a guy will propose and want to get married almost immediately…
It is pretty funny when they learn the reality that comes with say a BIG White Pouffy Traditional Family Wedding… and that it can take a year to plan.
IMO there is nothing quite so sexy as a Man who is 100% Truly in LOVE it is an INCREDIBLE thing to behold
… CONGRATULATIONS… it sounds like you are there

I think we both changed when we decided to get married. We made more of an effort to work on our communication and plan our future together. It’s a great time, enjoy it!

@This Time Round: Thanks. I mena he’s ALWAYS been so great and wonderful to me, but lately he has really stepped it up like 10 notches!
@Eckle: We pretty much decided together too, but I know he also kind of wanted to do the traditional proposal and surprise thing, and deep down I kind of wanted that too even though I feel like the mos timportant part is us deciding together that we want to get married.
@AlwaysSunny: Thanks, I’m so excited. He’s just such a great guy and I’m still in awe after three years that I get to spend my life with him!
