@sugar_biscuit and @luckylady3090: Thank you for your comments. Your thoughts would be very encouraging, but I forgot to mention that when we had the discussion before moving, he made it pretty obvious that marriage was not something he had thought about at that point. He’s a VERY practical person who never says anything that he can’t take back.
It took seven months into our relationship for him to tell me that he loves me because he had to be absolutely sure. I know that sounds strange to some people, but it was actually a nice change from the other guys I had dated who all told me after two weeks or something crazy like that (the relationship directly before my current SO was with a guy who told me he loved me after like a week and that one ended horribly). With him, I knew how he felt about it and I knew when he said it that it was real. For some reason it didn’t really bother me to wait for that, because I knew that when it finally happened it was completely worth the wait. Maybe I should take the same approach with this situation!
