It sounds like everything just became real to him and he got a little overwhelmed. I would give him some time to process everything. Since you’re in no rush to get engaged, I wouldn’t talk about again for a while. He’ll bring it up if he feels comfortable.

@EternalRomance74:  The older men get without having married the less likely they are to ever be married. Perhaps he has some committment issues that have kept him from marrying before. I suggest he see a therapist to check and if needed make any changes. You should find out sooner than later if he can actually go through with a marriage.

Also, he should meet your children before a ring. That is a big committment and it isn’t fair to expect him to propose without really knowing 3 big parts of you.

@EternalRomance74:  I’ve heard of waiting until its serious to introduce your family to your boyfriend but until engagement seems so risky. What if they don’t get along? Sounds like you’ve got a special situation but that would worry me. And for him- I just wonder how he could be comfortable proposing without knowing your kids???

Maybe you can leave it alone a bit maybe a month or so and see if he brings it up.  It seems like he may have just been overwhelmed with the whole thing, even though it was his idea.  Just give it a bit of time and see how it goes.

Since he was the one that suggested it i think once the feeling of “wow we’re making a serious committment” goes away he will come around and go back to being himself again.

I also think the idea of promise rings are just soo adorable 🙂 I really like it.


Good luck

relaxedabout it – I second that.

Also, it’s only been six months.  Maybe the ring made him feel like things were moving too fast.  I say give it a little time.
