fairydust91 :  

Is he the romantic type? I was with my boyfriend for just about two years and we have a 15 month old daughter (very, very, fast progressing relationship but it completely worked out for us)

He is not the romantic share his feelings type, and I knew this. he was also married before so he has “been there, done that” while I haven’t. He knew I wanted to get married and I knew it wasn’t in his style to propose.

So I did it. He’s into the wedding planning and I don’t feel cheated at all because I knew romantic gestures were not his style.

Maybe it was a feeler? He asked to watch your response and guage if you want to be engaged or not. I think you shoudl have a heart-to-heart about how you feel.

Am I the only one who thinks Op is reading too much into this? I doubt he means it literally. He was probably just thinking about life with you though.

No one except him can explain his motives.

becks90 :  My initial reaction too was maybe the OP was reading too much into this.  But if they have never had the marriage discussion now would be a good time too.  You have the best ice breaker already there.
