I am just trying to find some patience.
My boyfriend and I have been talking about dates. We both want kids, want them in the next 2-5 years (I’m 33 and we would like 2 before I am 40) and want marriage first. We both think fall 2020 is ideal for us. We are planning to buy a home together this coming summer. We currently live in a home I bought a few years ago. I am unwilling to sell my property or buy something together without an official engagement and he knows that. We have also discussed going ring shopping together so we can make a ring decision as a couple. Because of this I know there is no way he has gone on his own.
Basically at some point in the next few months we should be getting engaged. I don’t want to take over and suggest we go ring shopping. I tend to have a bad habit of taking control. I want him to make a few moves toward engagement in his own.
Not looking for advice just trying to settle my mind and seek patience. I love our open communication and I know we are on the same page. I wish the next few months events were all written on a calendar or something so I knew when to expect things.
