New poster here. I am going crazy playing the waiting game. I am 30 and finishing graduate school in 2 months. My bf is 28 and he is in a LONG graduate program and will not finish for a while. We have been dating over a year and he has hinted at marriage. Finally, a week a half ago, I sat him down and I said, “so where do you think we are going long term.” He responded “you know I want to marry you one day.” I said “well, when do you think that will happen” and he said “I was planning on proposing this summer!!!” He then asked me how much of a suprise I wanted it to be and how much input I wanted to have in when/how it happened. I got the sense that he really wanted to suprise me and he was kind of bummed that we had had “the talk.” So, I merely stated “you should speak with my girlfriends. They know what I would want.” He asked me which girlfirend to speak to, etc. So now I know that if it happens it will be by September. I am going crazy! I also worry that he may disappoint me and if I don’t get a proposal by September I feel strongly that I will have to leave. Ughh! So many emotions!
