Ok so we have been talking about getting married for maybe 6 months or so and have been talking about how we want to move in together and start saving for a house etc. He seems excited about the idea of us getting engaged because I know that he has been talking to his mom, dad, and his best friend about it (I know because he tells me about conversations he has with them), and he is pretty open to talking about it. Also his mom messaged me thinking he had already proposed the other day (I have another post about this) We even have talked about venues. We have talked about moving in together by next May but both want to be engaged before we move in. He has told me that he feels pressured to propose by then because he is worried that he won’t be able to save up in time but he doesn’t want to wait another year to move in together. After much thinking several weeks after that conversation I did tell him that I would be willing to get a place together before he proposes but that if we do it is really important to me that he proposes within the first year of us living together. He then told me, well we have a lot of time until May so we can talk about it when the time gets closer. This made me think that maybe he is trying to make it happen before May and it won’t even be an issue by then.
Also he asked what my ring size was and another day he was asking me what I thought of rubies or other gem stones instead of diamonds. He also said he already picked out a ring and he wanted to propose as soon as he has enough money. But then another day a few months before he was asking me all this stuff about the ring, he had said that he had been looking at rings but wanted to wait a bit longer so I am not sure what to think. We also haven’t talked about it a whole lot for the past two weeks or so so I am not sure what to think. And he has also mentioned he wants to pay off his credit card debt first (which isn’t a whole lot but I think he is making very small payments). I have no clue where he is with the whole process and it is driving me crazy. He could have the ring for all I know or we could end up waiting for another year or so. Does it sound like he is planning something soon?
