8 years! Where did you say your halo was?

Lol. Being serious though, was he maybe trying to be cute and hinting? I don’t know, but I would maybe wait another month, once the overtime was well and truly over, then have a serious chat from there? Good luck!

I would definitely say something…. Wow, I personally wouldn’t put up with that.

@Avabee:  Oh I feel your pain.  Our stories are very similar.  My Boyfriend or Best Friend and I have also been going out for 8 years (since we were 18), have been living together 2 years and we have also had a big engagement talk about a year ago.  Unfortunately I feel like it could be farther from his mind.  At least he gave you a timeline of sorts! Laughing

I TRY not to bring it up much because I don’t want to pressure him into something that he is not ready for.  I want him to marry me when he genuinely WANTS to marry me.  But then again, I want to get the show on the road.

After 8 years, you deserve to ask. Just bring it up gently so he knows it’s on your mind. Be sure to ask for a concrete timeline, and then you’ll be able to exhale.
