So we’ve been together for 2 years and we have already discussed the above but it’s always been quite vague, like “I don’t like putting a timeline on things” or “Sooner than I ever expected.”
It’s never been discussed negatively nor have I ever been told to stop talking about it. He does get excited about it and now brings up “growing old together” and “when we’re married,” “if we have kids,” and even showed me a video of an old couple taking care of each other saying how that’s how he wants us to be. Haha.
I know it’s not coming any time in the next year (despite how sad that makes me) but I would still like to know what HE thinks a reasonable timeline would be given our exact situation and given our relationship etc.
It’s just that I don’t particularly wanna make a big deal out of it nor make him freak out and think he needs to do it NOW. Men seem to think like that.
Should I just be quiet and wait another year, or risk sounding needy and ask him again? If so, what do I say/ask?
I should also add that I’ve already made it quite clear that at the 3 year mark (in a year) I believe that the couple gets engaged if they’re happy. He’s made it clear that he gets what I’m saying but he’s never technically said he’s ok with it or not. He DOES say he wants to (yesterday he said he’s so ready for us to have our own house) and he also told me he thinks we’re meant to be together sometimes earlier today.
