Mine did. He would ask me if he could keep me forever. For the longest time, we weren’t engaged, but we knew we were getting married. He just wasn’t ready to be engaged yet. Eventually, he proposed. 

Just give him time :). He’s obviously thinking about it and planning for it.

LOL, mine did the same thing.  When he proposed on bended knee I asked him if it was the “real” proposal this time.  It was because he gave me the ring!  But I’d already said, “Yes, I want to marry you,” several times prior to that.  🙂

I am right there with you!! I am going crazy! I know a proposal is in the works, but it’s hard to wait! Do you have a timeline or anything?

I know what you mean. Mine’s been hinting so much that I just want him to do it already! haha. They’re both probably just testing the water. Are you worried he’ll skip over the formal “getting down on one knee” part and just think “Well, we already talk about it so much, why should I bother?” I was worried about this, but I don’t think that’ll happen.

I so feel your pain! We are looking online at houses and I don’t want to move until we are married. He keeps telling me to move in now and I am like-I can’t because you won’t do your part!!! Grrr… I hope both our SO’s get on with it soon!

@ciel:  Men are really good at driving us crazy! My SO does the whole ” can I keep you forever” and even when he ‘fake proposed’ (drunk) the other night I still said YES. They just don’t get it!

@ciel:  LOL!  I know!  I think they do it to be 100% sure the answer for the REAL proposal will be YES.  All the times he asked me I said, “When you give me the ring we’ll be officially engaged, but not until then.”  Just to keep him on pins and needles a little.  😉
