Thanks for all of the great responses! To give a little more background, I am 24 and he is 26. He is employed with a full-time job (engineer– doing really well for himself). We started dating back in November last year, and he gave me his spare key to his apartment a little under 2 months of dating. We both have had discussions how we are in this for the long haul and have joked around about having kids. We just had our 4 month “dating anniversary” and with my past experience I know that he is the one and I can see myself marrying him. I am very convinced he feels the same way. We just recently adopted a puppy together so with everything from the outside looking in, it does look like we are moving at a very fast pace…however, he has always said there are no rules as far as timelines go…another reason why I feel like I can bring up the marriage thing, but I’ve also been thinking waiting until May so we have at least 6 months under our belts.
Sounds silly to wait a couple more months when I’m pretty sure he feels the same way. I think in a sense we’re both afraid to bring it up now for fear of scaring off the other…:P
