Hi all! I’m new here. I know this is a site for people who are already engaged and planning a wedding, but I was hoping you girls could give me your input on my current situation.
My boyfriend (just turned 26) and I (about to turn 25) have been together for 1.5 years. Since about the beginning of February, he has been mentioning things regarding marriage and proposing to me. Some of the things he has said include: Asking me if he thinks my parents would approve if he proposed to me, asking me if my brother in law asked permission from my parents before he proposed to my sister, telling me he hopes hes the last guy ill ever be with, telling me that if I were his wife he would make me the happiest girl in the world, flat out asking me if I wanted to be with him forever (this was the most recent comment – last week) and then after I said yes and asked him if he wanted to be with me forever he said yes and I asked if he was serious and he said yes. There have been plenty of other comments but those are the most recent ones that stick out in my mind.
Im sure I could give you guys more info regarding ther factors such as finances and other things in his life that factor in, but I’m afraid to get too specific on this post as I don’t know if these posts come up in google searches (I’m crazy I know.)
He has a good job and good living situation and has his finances in order is all I will say.
So what do you guys think? Do you think its around the corner? I know judging by the comments I said he made it seems like it is but I know these things take time, and i know a guy would be thinking about proposing for a very long time before it actually happens, for obvious reasons.
All comments and thoughts greatly appreciated!

Hi guys! I made this post a couple months ago but two nights ago something exciting happened! The other week my boyfriend asked me how come we havent had dinner at my parents house recently and said he wanted to because he hasnt seen them in a while. So we went there for dinner two nights ago.
Then afterwards, when we went back to his house that night, he said to me, “Are you going to be with me forever?” And my response was a playful, “maybe!” and he was like, “maybe?!?” Like he was actually upset that i said maybe. Then he asked me if i had other plans to which i said no. Then he said, “well maybe we should have a conversation about this and talk about the future. Whats your time frame?” And I said I didnt know. I wasnt really prepared to answer to that so unfortunately i said i dont know and then the conversation just fizzled out. I decided next time he brings it up, ill say something like, “it would feel really good to be engaged within a year” and not be pushy but just tell him that, since thats really how i feel. And see what he says from there.
Do you guys think this is okay? Also, do you think this means hes getting closer to proposing, or should i just take it with a grain of salt? I cant stop thinking about it now!

Oh and just background info – we’ve been together 1 year and 9 months now. He has his own house (but his bro and bff live there with him, but it is his and his bros names on the house) and we both have stable jobs and are in good positions financially.
