That he wants to move forward?

I think it’s basically a non-answer.  With no background (as you wished) I’d think he was putting me off, and making no definite commitments to propose.

Sounds like either he sees your point and wants to move forward or he’s pacifying you.

I agree with @Tunacupcakes… without more detail it can only be one or the other.

he’s just parroting back what you say probably to get you to drop the subject. Without any other information, that’s what I think.

That likely means we are, we’re moving in that’s “forward”.

@prshadow: I think it is a really good sign that he is putting time and money into your house. Would you feel comfortable sitting him down and establishing a timeline with him?

The first thing I thought of was – define forward but that could be law school brain speaking..

Depends on the context. With my ex – that comment would have been made to get me “off his back”. With my DH, I would have taken him seriously and expect the relationship to move forward.

I don’t know what that means so my next question would’ve been, “what’s forward?”

Does moving in without a marriage license mean the relationship is going forward? If I was dating a big commitmentphobe I wouldn’t move in without being married. I know a girl who thought moving in = progress. They’ve been dating 10yrs now and fight about the same thing every so often. Also, I’d take measures to protect myself and the house. With him putting in so much $, and if he plans to live there for some time, you might have problems kicking him out in the future, if it becomes necessary. Not trying to be grim, just telling you what I’ve seen of others’ relationships.
