I guess “feeling you out” would have to be his intent, but it makes no sense to me why he would even need to if you already went ring shopping together. Obviously you are up for it.

According to some, if you are talking about marriage, agreeing to say yes,  and going ring shopping, congratulations, by definition you are engaged!   You don’t need a ring and an official proposal, just the expressed intent to marry.

@Evanstobe:  I think you are correct, he’s trying to reassure himself. No man wants to hear “No”. (Silly boys. Obviously since you went ring shopping with him…)

I love that you gave him a hard time for teasing you with a question like that! I would have said something similar. I don’t think you are reading too far into this, it sounds like things are progressing nicely.

@Evanstobe:  Fingers crossed for you! Especially since you’re from San Jose too 😉

@Evanstobe:  He’s feeling you out… seeing if you’re ready. My man did that last February. “If I asked you to marry me today, would you say yes? What about if I asked you in a year?” He wanted to know when was too early and when was too late. Good for you for telling him he only gets one fake proposal! I told my guy he was a wimp for asking 😛

I agree with other PPs who say he was just feeling you out and making sure it’s a definite yes. I’d bet it was coming super soon!

I love your response! As anxious as I was toward the end of my waiting period, I would have told him to beat it with that bullshit!

@Evanstobe:  It does sound like he is feeling you out, and there is a good chance a proposal is coming, good luck to you!
