So…last night my boyfriend came back from hanging out with his best guy friends, and he said,
“apparently, when we’re getting married is the hot topic of conversation”!
So I (calmly…or at least, tried to be calm) asked him what he said, and told me,
“I told them we haven’t picked out a date yet, but we’re definitely talking about it”

Awe! So awesome! It’s a good sign when the guys are asking him about it too :o)

I would like to second that!!! It might take them awhile but when they start bringing it up you know you are getting closer to what you have been waiting forever for! LOL..Well it feels like forever to me!!! I wish I could just get my boyfriend to stick to the date in stone so that we can start really planning!

Aww! My advice as always is to just keep quiet about getting engaged and only let him bring it up so he thinks it’s all his idea.

And then to top it off, he told me that his best friend(who has been with his sweet girlfriend FOREVER) is starting to talk about proposing to her…and then he got confused and asked why I got even more excited about them getting engaged..it was so funny.

Totally agree with MissAsB!! Seems to take the pressure off of them when its all “their idea” LOL

It’s great too when his friends start to mention it because then he really does give it more thought. My bf’s friend on NYE commented that he was saving up for a setting for his gf, and poked my bf into doing the same, which of course is much appreciated. I’ll take all the help I can get! ha

I’ve only been with my SO for nine months, but everyone seems to think it’s been longer. We started getting questions like that six months ago! It’s good affirmation when your friends think you’re perfect together. I’m still waiting, but hints have been dropped lately…I’m doing my best to stay patient and quiet!

That’s great that he has friends who are actually interested in marriage & talking about it openly with him! That’s so much better than if his friends were the perpetually single guys who were against marriage entirely!
Yay! So excited for you! 🙂

@MissAsb: I think that’s great advice. A couple of my girlfriends have really put the pressure on their guys and my boyfriend has mentioned numerous times how he doesn’t think that’s how it should be and i agree with me(although I have at times had to bite my tongue to keep from bringing it up.)
One of my best friends is engaged but she(and her family) constantly browbeat the poor boy for almost the entire time they dated until he proposed. I would never want that, as I would always wonder if he just proposed to get some relief!
J was saying how, as he talked to his friends, that it sounded like they were all reaching the point where they wanted to be(career-wise, etc.) and settling down(no more bar hopping)….I do think it’s so good that they’re all growing up together(they’re 26-27) just like they alway have..they’ve been friends since grade school.
