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.

I don’t think he meant it at all. I would imagine he would LIKE to get me a ring and all that. I was just wondering to what extent does it mean he’s ready for all that and should i perhaps use this opportunity to feel HIM out too but I’ve decided to just be happy that he’s comfortable with even talking about that stuff in relation to the (hopefully not toooo distant lmao) future.
Thanks to everyone who chipped in. Xox
