Its coming up to Christmas,  maybe he had a surprise proposal planned and you just sussed him out,  maybe thats why he got all anti  with you.  if he definately didnt want to know,  he wouldnt have text back with those names.  because he must have been thinking about it to be able to tel you the names. 

I dont think you are pressurizing him.  an old saying rings true

he needs to S***  or get off the pot!   LOL

@kfiorita:

You are forgetting one very important thing……he is a MAN!  LOL

A few years ago i really wanted a camera,  i had set my heart on it, and dropped hints all the time.  when it was clear he hadnt taken the hints,  i ASKED  him to buy it for me for christmas……like your partner,  he said he had already got my present…..maybe next year he would upgrade my camera…..    πŸ™ πŸ™ πŸ™

Guess what,  christmas morning came and i opened my present…..there it was.  the camera i had longed for. he had got it for me when i was only at the hinting stage….

I hope that he gets you your E ring,  but it dont really want to be AS a christmas present,  INSTEAD of a present.  it really should be as well as….fingers crossed for you…..

I have also been with my boyfriend for a little over 4 years and we are 20 and 21!! haha what a coincidence. My boyfriend gets weird like that too. One day he will bring up wedding talk and details and want to engage in wedding discussion and the next he won’t talk about it and act put off by it. Our families are all really supportive and have been asking us when we are getting married. Sometimes I try and not bring up wedding related talk at all because I think my SO gets overwhelmed with everyone asking him when he is going to propose and stuff. So maybe try not talking to him about it for a few weeks or something and see if that works. I hope he proposes to you soon!!!

@kfiorita: I have been with my SO for almost five yrs and like you I’m also in waiting. I have to disagree with the PPs and tell you that it’d probably be best to lay off the wedding talk for a while.  It sounds like he might feel a bit pressured, wait for him to brig it up. He also may be planning something soon and it’s hard to surprise someone when they are constantly talking about it. Hang in there. It will happen πŸ™‚

@kfiorita:I think it is a good idea to leave him alone.  He has made his intentions clear (which is a lot more than a lot can ask for).  Ramming the marriage talk down his throat pushes him further away from proposing not closer, and if it does make him propose, it is because you pressured him, not because he wanted to.  Let him have his manhood and do things in his own time and in his own way-that appears to be important to a lot of men.  You may be pleasantly surprised!

@kfiorita: I am the same,  I LOVE to plan!! πŸ™‚  I know how you feel.  My SO was the same way with me though once we started looking at rings and I so wanted him to propose.  But it wasn’t time yet.  You don’t want to be “that” girl that pressures him into marrying you.  And you’re right to enjoy the time you have NOW!  You have an awesome few months coming up!  So focus on that for now!
