My boyfriend and I have only been dating for 9 months but have been really close friends for the last 2.5 years. We are in our last year of college, im 23 and he is 25. We have always joked about us getting married since I was never a fan and told him that he could just be a stay at home dad to my pups in the future. He recently has just been brining marriage/wedding up out of the blue by saying that I am right we should just have a huge party for our close family and friends. He makes comments on my friends rings and weddings and has even told me to no expect a huge diamond or a blingy ring. I’m fine with a simple ring but he keeps bringing it up more and more often. Now he has always told me that he would want help because he could never just buy me a ring or start something new without me. I’m getting excited that he wants me around and believes that we are going to last, I think the same thing too, but am kinda curious how serious he is being and if he is actively looking. He keeps bringing it up more and I know that how soon it happens depends how close we get jobs but Im excited and torn that he may just go ahead and just get me something and run with the fact that I tell him I dont care about anything relating to wedding as long as I have him there that day. I would love to have a surprise proposal but at the same time would be over the moon to pick out a ring with him as well. How did you ladies know that he wasnt just being vague but truly trying to prod you for information?
