New to WeddingBee 🙂 I’ve been with my boyfriend for 4.5 years. Lived with him for 3.5 years. He is 25, i am 23. Not in a big rush to get married, but would love to know where our relationship is going!
He is an amazing boyfriend to me. We never fight, and he always puts me before anything. We have a very husband/wife-like relationship. Though we never openly talk about weddings, we know that we want to be together forever. (yes, gag!) He is a shy type but he’s open about his feelings for me. We’ve been to a few weddings already, most of his friends are engaged or married. We are very close to each others families.
Last week, he was saying …”(something)..(something)..because you’re an ____ (his last name)”. i said, “no i’m not. ” and he replied.. “we’ll see about that” . Was a really random conversation…made me smile that night, but i forgot about it until today.
We’ve been really close these past months. I would say our relationship has been stronger compared to years before. He took my hand and kissed it the other night.something he’s never done before!.. He’s just been generally more mushier! he’s gotten a new, higher paying job.. he tells me about all of his finances, he told me he just made a big payment on his credit card..hmmm.
I know he loves me but will he propose anytime soon? I’m getting a little anxious. How long did you wait until your S.O. proposed?

I have the feeling it will be very soon, just be patient and cool.

Aaww so sweet 🙂 Sounds like you have some sort of inkling with all the random mushy stuff and small comments. I have a good feeling about this 🙂

@photoxbooth: I agree with the other, it sounds like it will be very soon, hopefully within the next few months! The whole mushy attitude change along with his sly comments would totally have me anxious too! Me and my fiance dated for almost 9 years before we (JUST!) got engaged, patience is a virtue ; )

That’s the same way my SO acts. I’m not sure what he’s waiting for. We’ll have been together for 2 years in September which is not that long but we own a house together. He’s 27 and I’m 23.
Even the other day he said “I know I want to be with you forever, I just haven’t asked yet”… which makes me so happy but also makes me think “What’s the hold up!” haha.
I think in general women are more decisive then men, when they know they want to be with someone they know and there is nothing that really holds them back but men want to think it over/mourn the death of their bachelorhood (lol.. my SO told me that one himself!)
Hang in there!!

I have been with my fiance since 2001 . It took him from 2001-2008 to propose however the wait was worth it and unexpected I was actually surprised as my family and his came in for that day. I naively believing we were celebrating his birthday turned out to be my birthday as well ! He picked out the ring(s) all my himself call everyone and invited them and did the most impossible thing ever kept it a secret that I did not figure out.
He will propose to you when he believes he is ready. However you relationship is strong and best of all you still love each other after 4 years. I was like you by 2006 I had given up so when 2008 came I was in full wedding mode preparations our wedding has been posponed until 2011 because we are purchasing our home first .

Be patient 😉 My FI brought me to the jeweller to pick the ring I liked. He bought it and he didn’t propose until he was ready!

I would just relax…you two are still both young. I am sure when the *time* and moment is right he will ask. You just have to be patient. You never want the guy to even sense pressure/rush…..not implying that you would be doing that or anything…but some guys can freak out easily.
I just know that the time and moment was right when my fiance asked me, and I am sure it will be that way for you as well!! Good luck!
