Big, huge hugs!!! Sorry to hear that but maybe he is just caught up in being excited about his career – doesn’t mean a proposal will never happen!

Don’t be discouraged.  Many guys want their career to be set before they propose.

That’s quite the leap to make from his behavior. You may be reading too much into it. Just relax.

Don’t bum yourself out about it. He seems like he’s really excited about his career, and most men want their career to be settled before they propose. It could be he’s bringing up his career because he feels like you’ll take it as a sign that he will be able to provide and that he feels more confident about marriage now?

He could be keeping it extra quiet to surprise you! When you were talking about it, he could’ve been gathering information and now he knows what he needs to know and is preparing for it. You never know!

i also think he may really want to have an element of surprise for the proposal. try to stay positive!

I’ve heard a lot that before proposing guys tend to test their SO’s to make sure their all in too. That was my initial reaction to reading about his sudden  change from we to me. I wouldn’t get too worked up about it yet. Everything else he’s done and said sounds so promising.

Big, big hugs!!! Maybe the heart-to-heart will make you less of a mess since you won’t be waiting anymore, and he will propose in the next few months. I hope it works out!

That’s rough sailing. 🙁
