Is he wanting to marry me but.........

My BF and I are living together and things are going great together. The last month or so he keeps asking me if I want to get married. Although he just out and says it without a ring or a proper proposal I'm not sure if he is asking me for real or just gearing up to. What do you ladies think??

  • He is just gearing up and sit down and talk to him and ask him if he is for real and if he is tell him that you would like him to do it the right way with a ring. My SO hints around about it also and he got me a promise ring and then this mothers day he got me a mothers ring and now my promise ring is on the left ring finger and he put it there and asked. GL i hope it happens for you SOON!

  • My DH did something similar. I found out later he was trying to figure out what I would say when he popped the question for real in front of everybody. He didn't want to be rejected in front of his friends.

  • My husband didn't really propose to me. It was pretty much him saying we should get married and then we went to a ring store where I picked out my ring. Which I have to admit, I much prefer to him picking it out, even though it isn't nearly as romantic. I was with him when he went to pick it up and then he did do an official proposal when we went to a fancy place for dinner on our two year anniversary, but it wasn't like it was a surprise or anything. You should just flat out ask him if he's serious and tell him what you want.

  • Ok, so my DH pretty much told me, "You're going to marry me, please don't say no! Please don't say no!"

    I picked 3 rings for him to choose from, and he picked the one I liked best. Granted, it was 4 years after I picked it out... lol.

    Ask him if he's serious. Have a good, serious talk, in a place that you both are comfortable. Make your desires known, the way you want the proposal, a big surprise, or if you want to pick your ring, or whatever.

    He's feeling you out here... feed him what he needs to know, if it's what you want!

    You go girl!
