Sounds like he’s pretty sweet on you though, so I wouldn’t worry. ๐Ÿ™‚

Looks like he is building to a surprise. when I was waiting I expected it with every dinner, anytime he went home from work before me, anything. In the end he used friends to distract me and proposed when I least expected it. I’m sure that’s what yours is doing too.

Awww, he sounds like such a sweetheart.  You know it’s coming.  I’d say try to just enjoy the ride for now.  He’s given you a timeline.

He sounds like a romantic guy who just likes to show you & your daughter that he loves you & wants to show you off as a family.

A keeper.

I think this is part of the issue with ‘waiting’. Take it for what it is, you obviously have a romantic which is great, enjoy it and when the time comes, you’ll enjoy that moment even more as you aren’t anticipating it every time he makes a nice gesture. He isn’t making you think it’s going to happen sooner, YOU are making you think it’s going to happen sooner. Sounds like you have a keeper. Enjoy him.

rainbowinwaiting:  Hi ๐Ÿ™‚ Our situation sounds so similar- 3.5 years, kids on both sides, sweet affectionate guy but no ring yet!  He does sound like he loves you sweetie, I think guys just don’t see things the same way we do- we build anticipation and hope into every event & they don’t even realize it. He could have been planning something and lost his nerve (in which case it will happen soon). Maybe he was worried if he did it when your daughter was present but not his own kids they might feel left out. Or maybe he simply planned something lovely because he’s that kind of guy ๐Ÿ™‚

Several of us were just talking about this exact thing- special events that seem to be perfect engagement opportunities but no ring- in the SIUP, you should come join us in this thread as well ๐Ÿ™‚
