It doesn’t sound like you were being pursuasive or even trying to convince him of anything. It sounds like he had the idea first. Maybe he took you out shopping to get your ideas, but ultimately wants to surprise you. So he played it up about being forced.

I wouldn’t say anything to him, pretend you didn’t see the email. Let him propose when he’s ready – it may not be right away, it may even be a year from now. Try not to be anxious and just let things happen.

A man only does what he wants to!! and forced usually doesnt come after 1 conversation, more like 30 over a 2 week period. lol… Congrats btw!

I think it was your brilliant counter statement that did it. For sure. It put everything into perspective for him, yes you are moving for him and getting a house or rather making a home together. It seems natural to add the ring. The proposal just makes the fairytale complete 🙂
