I was wondering what type of signs if any your boyfriend gave off before he proposed. I feel it may be coming but am not sure. My bf and I are in our early 20’s and have been together for a year and a half, but have known eachother since we were younger. We’ve lived together for almost a year and he is about to buy a home which we will soon move into. We have never had the marriage talk before, but when he speaks of the future he always includes “we.” I would like to talk to him about it and see if it is on his radar. I feel that it probably is but feel unsure becasue it’s just never come up and I don’t want to scare him or make him feel pressured because I am very happy with the way our relatiionship is now. I can see us getting married some day and we’re usually on the same page about most other things so I hope he thinks the same. I would just like to know if any one else has experienced this or something similar.

lovelylilac1: My SO and I have been together for 6 years and I know a proposal is coming probably next month…if not then, sometime in the very near future because we’ve discussed having a wedding next year. That said, there were many times throughout our relationship when he mentioned “we” when referring to the future.I always knew that he wanted to marry me at some point- we talked about kids, where we wanted to live, etc. But, it wasn’t until this year that we had a serious discussion about when we wanted to get married and start a family. It’s great that your boyfriend is talking about the future with you, but personally, I wouldn’t have expecations of a proposal anytime soon. That’s just my own experience and I know that every relationship is different so I could be completely wrong. If you want to get married soon, though, I think it’s important to bring the topic up so you can find out whether he is on the same page.
