    I would just ask straight up- what is taking so long? let him know that it’s driving you nuts waiting for it and its making you start to doubt him. Make where you’re at very clear. 

    then you hear what he has to say and then you drop it. You can’t ask everyday or the surprise will be gone and obviously he wants that. I would however shut down wedding talk- say “well it’s a bit much to pick a venue considering there’s no ring on my finger. Let’s not put the cart before the horse”

    good luck!

    Eheseltine:  also I forgot to say- don’t sit him down for a formal timeline talk- that’s forcing his hand and like it or not- the proposal timeline is up to him. I would just let him know you are enjoying the wait less by the day.

    Can’t you just say to him “I’d like to be engaged by X month/year. Can we accomplish that?”
