Aw, he sounds like a sweet guy.  You’ll end up living happily ever after.  It just takes some time… I waited 5 years for the proposal.  Every man has his own timing… unfortunately.

He sounds really sweet!! I’ve heard that when the men stop talking about it, it’s because they are seriously considering it and wanting to surprise you. I don’t know if it’s true or not but there may be something to it!

You’ve definitely got one of the good ones.  The thing I got reminded of often is: do you want him to propose because HE wants to propose or do you want him to propose because YOU goaded him into it?  That actually came from my now-fiance, which definitely made me a little quieter on the subject of, “When am I getting a ring?”

Honestly, my Fi talked about getting married a lot (he brought it up more than me, b/c like you I didn’t want to be “that girl”)  When he stopped talking about it, I got a little scared too…but you know what…1 month after he PROPOSED!!!  So he was up to something when he wasn’t talking about it, so maybe that’s what your BF is up too!  Sounds like its coming soon!  He’s sweet to say those kind words to you!!

He sounds really sweet and definitely someone that wants to marry you. My FI talked a lot about marrying me and even a week before he proposed, I was still getting upset and wondering if he was “serious” about getting married. Your feelings are totally normal. Just hang in there, it’s coming!!! πŸ™‚

Maybe he stopped talking about it because he wants to surprise you later?  Or maybe he is saving money and planning and doesn’t want to give anything away.

Engagement brain can be so frustrating! But if he is talking about it, that’s a good sign. I just think that guys talk about it for a few months, THEN start thinking about getting the ring, THEN start looking for one, THEN they buy one, and THEN they propose. Our brains go from thinking about getting engaged to wanting to be engaged in 0.7 seconds flat. Faster than a porshe engine… LOL!!!! It’s so hard to hang in there and not say anything, but it’s good that you are realizing how important that he is to you, ring or no ring. You’ll get there!!!!!!

So how do you know he’s gonna propose or thinking about it. The only things I have to go on are

1)We picked out a ring but he has not purchased it yet.

2)He told his buddies at work that he is going to propose and that he is buying my ring this month before it goes up in price. (But he could just be saying that to his work buddies to look cool since they are all married)

3)He opened up his store credit card where my ring is.

Please help!! Am I crazy? Cause it’s all I think about and I don’t bring it up to him because I don’t want him to feel pressured. I love him and I know he loves me and my kids more than anything.
