Just have that same conversation in a girly store and you will have people on your side. lol  Can’t bring it up in testosterone town! He most likely wouldn’t have said anything if you two weren’t talking about it in a “guy safe haven”. My SO and I have been together for over 4 years and I let him bring it up, but we aren’t in the same situation as you (no baby) so I can see why you would want to def talk about it more. And he kinda set himself up for it with wanting to buy golf clubs, cause they would make a great engagement gift! lol

In all honesty I would feel bad for his girlfriend if she really wants to settle down, that guy sounds like he may NEVER want to do that for a third time!

I think that the stranger guy was a ‘tard. Especially if he wasn’t up front about his thoughts with his SO. We don’t know the dynamics of their situation…..but I’m close in age to her and have been involved with Shutterbug a year and a half as well…..I appreciated him telling me about his timeline. I hope that he had the courtesy of telling his SO so that she’s in the loop. To do otherwise would be just…..wrong.

(Now, for what it’s worth, to my credit, I haven’t been all naggy lately- I haven’t brought up the ‘e’ word, or the ‘m’ word, or the ‘w’ word since November. November, girls! That was the last time we had any type of real convo/discussion/vent session regarding getting married. Aside from one or two [fine, three or four] quick one-liners quipped in passing conversation, I haven’t said a word. Nada. And really, there was no productive convo after this, either, it came and went just like any other subject. But come, July [our 4 year dating anni], it’s time for a serious sit-down. But I digress………)

IMO, you have brought the subject up since November.

@Wonderwoman217: I love it when a complete stranger is on ‘your side’ (for lack of a better term). It just confirms your sanity, and you realize that it’s not just you being impatient, it IS time to get the ball rolling.
