I wouldn’t worry ๐Ÿ˜› Is he normally an enthusiastic person? If not, no amount of happiness is going to make him match your outward excitement. He’s probably just relieved that the “asking” is over and the nerves are setting in. Enjoy your engagement and congrats!!!

I can see my SO just saying “okay” in response to me saying that someone said congrats. I would only worry if he wouldn’t ever talk about setting your wedding date or if he didn’t show any signs of being happy to be engaged to you. Just that one comment shouldn’t be a big deal tho.

My Fiance is really laid back about stuff like that too, especially since we have been together for six years and living together for almost five. To be honest in his opinion we practically are married so the engagement is just a formality.

I wouldn’t worry about it too much. If he got you a ring and put a little thought into timing and proposal then obviously he cares about the engagement, he just isn’t a ball of jumping up and down emotion like you. ๐Ÿ™‚

I don’t think it’s a big deal. honestly I was like your FH sounds after engagement. FH was excited. I’m just a more level person than he is and don’t get emotional easily. It makes sense he’d respond in this way if he’s been thinking about it for months ๐Ÿ˜‰ His ‘wow, it’s so new’ excitement is old by now. No worries.

Totally normal. I didn’t get my ring for months after we had ordered it and when it finally got here my Fiance wasn’t as excited… He was excited but not like me. It’s a man thing I think. Right now you should just be soooo excited because it’s new for you! And congrats by the way! I want to see te ring ๐Ÿ™‚
