@Creiddylad:  Awww, I’m sorry nobody else replied to you, this is really funny and really sweet. Your SO sounds like the kind of guy who isn’t so comfortable sharing how he feels? So this definitely sounds like his way of saying you are the kind of girl he wants to marry πŸ™‚

I think most boys only tell you to stop hinting, when they’ve got the hint and they are on their way to proposing (they are ready and planning). I would’ve said something totally different before, but I now have a Fiance and found out he had ordered my ring 3 months ago, when we first established our timeline and he was teasing me the whole time to throw me off!!!

Good luck waiting and just remember you’re the girl he wants to marry and it’ll be so exciting when he asks you properly πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

Oh lord .. I went through this for the longest time with my SO. He was so careful about how he worded things the FEW times we did talk about the future. And even that was rare.

We just recently (and FINALLY) had a timeline talk, and he has finally started saying things like “our kids” and “when we get married”. It really took him awhile to get to that point. It bothered the crap out of me.

Also, don’t get your hopes up. You may think he’s thinking about marriage, but that could very well be the last thing on his mind. I thought SO was dropping hints close to a year ago when in reality, he has just started thinking about the whole process within the last 3 or 4 months.

Hang in there!

@Creiddylad:  Oh, I’m sure he wants it, or he wouldn’t be wasting his time with you! But WHEN he wants it may be very different from when you do. That’s the frustrating part and exactly what I’m going through now.

Then again … the surprise aspect may be incredibly important to him, and he may already be planning.

How long have you guys been together? And have you had any official talks yet?

My husband used to talk about “When we have kids” and “In our next house” all the time – before we were engaged.  Now that I really would just not take my pill tomorrow… nothing.  I was always very careful to talk about “IF we ever get married” and “IF I have kids” to make the point that nothing was for sure until he put a ring on it.  πŸ™‚
