I know it’s hard not to think about it but it might be the best thing.  Guys like the proposal to be a surprise and they feel like that can’t happen if you are thinking about it and talking about it together.  I had to completely stop about getting engaged to get my husband to propose, he even had the ring too.  You should check out Mr. Bee’s Three Step Plan.  He explains it so well!

Yeah, it sounds like he has something up his sleeve but wants to catch you when he thinks you’re not thinking about it (even though I know there is hardly a moment when us waiting bees are NOT thinking about it, lol!). I’d say just be patient, try to keep quiet about it for a while, and enjoy the relationship. If you feel like you can’t go without talking about it, find a hobby to keep you busy for a while. Good luck!

I agree with MissAsB, I think he wants you to cool down the engagement  talk so that he can surprise you. So take this time to enjoy your relationship and relish in the fact that its coming soon. Hey join the Christmas challenge, it couldn’t hurt!

Goodluck and welcome to the hive!

Am I not reading this right?  Is he saying he doesn’t want to get married in the spring anymore, or just that he doesn’t want to talk about the engagement right now?  Either way….next spring is pretty close, if he isn’t planning on proposing, like, now, you’re not going to have any time to plan.  While I’m all for not harping on it and letting him plan the engagement in his time, I think it’s important that you’re on the same page about things and are able to talk openly about something as important as your marriage plans.  What would bother me are the “it could be 2 or 25 years” comments – if he’s sure he wants to be with you, he shouldn’t have to make those comments, and if he’s not sure you need to have a bigger conversation.
