My Boyfriend or Best Friend and I have been dating for almost 2 yrs in Feb. He talks alot about the two of us having kids and what they would look like, even adoption of at least one child. And he bothers me alot when he makes comments like… “When we’re married…” So, my question is, what are the signs that I should be looking for that he will propose soon?

I’d suggest (although I’m pretty sure its impossible) not to look for signs. Its maddening. I think its great that he’s talking about a future with you, that alone is a sign that he loves you and plans to spend a lifetime with you. But, take it from a girl who’s done it, looking for signs of a proposal will only drive you bananas 🙂

Welcome to the hive! I would say the biggest sign that he’s thinking about marriage is talking about future children and switching from “when I get married” to “if we got married” and possibly even to “when we get married”.
But to look for signs as to WHEN he is going to propose will just drive you loopy. That’s like trying to find Christmas presents hidden at someone else’s house! Just enjoy your time together and focus on your relationship, the rest will fall into place.

I agree with the others. The talking about the future and saying things like “when we’re married” are good signs, but looking for the proposal signs and if he’s ring shopping etc. will drive you crazy. Focus on the relationship and what makes you guys happy to be together.
