Sounds like he is definitely thinking about it, but please don’t pin all your hopes and start playing these awful waiting games, but it does sound like you two are great and he is serious!

He may very well want a long engagement so that’s something to consider, but I hope if he does propose and he mentions that, that you move in together, I think that would be great 🙂

Good luck!

First of all, I’m glad that you’ve found someone who treats you so well and is so sweet with your son 🙂

Have you considered maybe being more direct and asking your boyfriend about where he sees your relationship going in the future?  It’s kind of scary to bring something like this up, but I hope his answer will help with your uncertainty.  And think some more about if you can see this man truly becoming your son’s stepfather, and your husband.  Best of luck!

I know you want a proposal because you have a timetable but honesty I think you should relax it has only been 11 months and you know how he feels. I dont think pressuring him will make him make a decision he is not married yet for a reason. He wants to make sure he is in a place of financial security and can give you what he feels you deserve.

Be patient and go about your life as you have been, this economy has been hard on everybody and a lot of people are waiting a little longer because of it. He also knows when he does propose you are going to want to get married within a certain amount of time and the wedding will cost money that you say neither one of you have right now.

Try to be a little more patient and not mention it to him because men are sensitive to not being able to take care of you when you ask for something. It makes them feel they are not a man because they know what you want and cant provide it.
