I have a dilemma I was hoping you all could help me with. My boyfriend of 2 years talks about getting engaged, married, and having kids all the time. However, I fear he is doing more talking than taking action. I am 28 and he is 25 (so of course I have a sightly greater sense of urgency). He is finishing up undergrad this year (December) so I am thinking he needs to achieve this milestone before getting down on one knee. After all, men are driven by accomplishment.
What can I do to encourage him to propose sooner than later? I have begun showing him the type of rings I like, thinking that this would help him in making his selection when he's ready. I don't believe this is presumptuous, since he talks about proposing ALL the time,...he literally tells my family members and everyone we meet that he's going to marry me. We absolutely know we want to be together, get married, and have a family.
Last question....should I ask him to stop talking about it so much until he is ready to take action? Or should I just let him bring it up and continue being patient and hopeful that he will soon put his money where his mouth is?
