My boyfriend and I have been together for 2 years and 4 months. We broke up for one month (June), because he felt unsure about our relationship, apparently. He realized during this break that he needs me in his life and that no one compares to me. He is 22, and I am 24. We lived together at school for the past 2 years. We have talked about marraige and I started to get ansty about it, because I was in a 7 year relationship from 15-22 that went no where, and I didn’t want a repeat of that.
After a month of no contact, he called me up and told me he had made a giant mistake and really wanted to see me. We spent the weekend together and he told me that I am the love of his life and that he wants to spend the rest of his life with me. I asked him how long he wanted to be with me, and he said “forever”. We were arguing about our breakup at one point and he said that if he had a ring right then he would propose to me. Later in the weekend, we were lying in bed and he bluntly asked me if I wanted to marry him, apparently to see what I would say. I told him that if he proposed to me I would say yes.
After that weekend, ( last week) he has been very attentive with calling me. We are long distance right now, until school resumes in the fall and we move back into our apartment. On the phone, he was crying and told me he wants to marry me and have kids with me and that he knows I am the love of his life, and he doesn’t want anyone but me. I asked him what our relationship status is, and he said “I think you know, but I can’t make it official yet”.
I said “But you told me that you didn’t want to get married until you were at least 30.” and he responded “It looks like that is going to be happening a lot sooner than I had expected”.
He is working every day for his father’s business, and perhaps is saving up some money for a ring. He is going to be hired on by his father once he graduates college in December, so he feels secure about his financia lsituation now. It would only take him a few weeks to save up enough for a decent ring.
During yet another phone conversation, he told me that he was going to do something that willmake me so happy and that big and good changes were coming my way.
Then yesterday, we were talking and he asked me what kind of puppy I wanted (I said I can’t get a puppy right now because of my living situation, haha). He always said he would get me a puppy but was not serious before, and this time he was. He was dissapointed becuase he really wanted to do that and make m happy, and then he said “Well I already gave away one of my surprises, so I should just stop talking before I let the other one slip”.
I am visiting him for a week in two weeks, and he told me he wants to go in to Boston for dinner. I suggested a restaurant that I like in Chinatown and he said no, we already have made memories there and he wants to go to a new place. I just said okay….
Then he said that he has a lot of planning to do for that day in Boston and he is going to sort that out before I come up (he lives only 20 minutes away from the city so its not like its a big deal to go in for an evening.)
Every day that we talk, he tells me he loves me more than anything in the world and that I am the one for him. He told me he wants to take care of me and protect me and that during our seperation he thought about me falling in love and marrying someone else and it made him sick and he couldn’t sleep. He said he doesn’t want me to be the “one that got away”. He wasn’t nearly this affectionate or open with his emotions until now.
What do you ladies think? Am I being silly? I don’t want to get my hopes up but it seems like he is hinting at a proposal to me. Tell me what you think please!
