First of all welcome! 

It sounds like you have a good relationship with your boyfriend and you are both starting to think about your future, maybe one together. That’s really exciting! And a great place to be. In my opinion, you have a couple of choices. 

First, you can let it go for a few months and see where it takes you. Weddings often bring out the desires in each of us, whether we are seriously considering them now or if we are looking years down the road. A conversation may spur when both of you are ready. 

Second, you can bring it up intentionally in a conversation now. If you choose this route, I would go along the lines of, our relationship is so wonderful and it seems like we could have a future together, what do you think? It doesn’t have to be specific as far as what month you want a wedding; just something to get you both talking about your future. The sooner you are the same page with each other, the better the future will be. 

It’s up to you since you know where you are in your relationship better than anyone. Hopefully this helps!

@OneOfTheseDaysAlice:   Welcome! ohh give it a few more weeks/months and you will be going crazy waiting! haha..

  I wouldnt be to worried about scaring him away. He seems like he doesnt mind talking about it. I know my SO started saying things like that to see how i felt. I told him straight out one day that Hes an amazing boyfriend and i would love to be with him for the rest of my life. After that we both knew we were going to be together for ever( over 4 and a half years and im still waiting haha) so maybe your bf is doing that to you to see where you stand.

  Good luck and keep us posted!

I waited till I felt comfortable, then brought it up in conversation and got his opinions on when exactly he wanted to get engaged and married. It made everything much less awkward!
