So he and I have been together for over 4 years now. Both of us are working. Both of us are 24 (with an age difference of 4 days 😀 ). His family has a rough idea about me. I do not doubt his intention of someday proposing to me, but its difficult for me to stay composed. I have seen so many people getting engaged after 6 or 7 years of their relationship. I just need you guys’ help to sail through the waiting period

@Nishtha: Happily you know he is going to propose and that you already have your forever someone in your life! Unless you are wanting children very soon, I say enjoy the time you have together and growing with each other. This is such a big transitional part of life, and it’s so amazing to be able to do that together.

Hi @Nishtha: were almost relationship twins… almost! Me and Bf have been together over 4 years and I am 24 (he’s 28). Thinking it might be soon as I know he’s looking at rings but he doesnt know I know. We can wait together. Think the main thing to do is trawl these pages to get your wedding/engagement fix and try and enjoy your time together until then, thats my plan anyway!

I know it’s tough! I’m going on 6 years with SO. We’re both 25. I know he wants it….but he isn’t in as much of a rush as I am i guess. It’s really frusterating
Just be happy that you have a man you love! Try to focus on that

Nearly the same here! 6.5 years, he’s 26, I’m 28. We have seen friends get engaged and married but just sailed straight through it. It’s only been this year that we’ve been talking seriously about getting engaged.
My 20’s have flown by while we’ve concentrated on careers, finances, houses (ok an apartment) and I can’t say I’ve been disappointed that we didn’t get married straight out of university! You’ve got the whole of your lives to be married, bask in the glow of being boyfriend and girlfriend 🙂 my advice is just sit back and enjoy the ride, when you’re both ready it will happen!

Thanx you guys. . . we all know men are wired a little different. They can concentrate on only one thing at a time!!!. . .He has told me I am the one and he will marry me and shows as much as committment as possible. But my overthinking brain makes me question him again and again. He tells me that he can assure and re-assure only for a while. It cannot happen all the time!!! Did anyone of you go through this. I hope I am not the only one!!! 🙁
