Good luck!  I think it’s a great idea to talk to him and that you’ve figured out he’s not a mind reader (that made me laugh! it’s so true!).  Don’t be upset though if he doesn’t agree with you.  I don’t remember how long you guys have been dating, but when my SO & I had been together for 5.5 years, we had a marriage talk (one of a bajillion) that did not go well for me… at all.  Literally half a year later (this Jan) he’s on board and agreeing with my thinking: engaged by this Sept!  So even if this talk turns into a bust, there’s still a chance he’ll be ready in time to propose by Christmas.  For some reason, dude-bros brains work differently and one day engagement is the farthest thing away from their mind, and the next day they’re all about it!  It also helped that he graduated from grad school and got a job and a place without roommates (we’re LDR for a bit too).

Did he give any other reasons for wanting a 5 year timeline originally?  If that’s when he felt comfortable taking the plunge, keep that in the back of your head.  Especially since you want to change the agreed upon timeline.  Good luck!
