My boyfriend of two and half years planned a surprise trip to Iceland/Netherlands. We both are divorced and have kids but we are perfect for each other. He came from a very controlling/abusive marriage on her part and he has been cheated on. He had told me early on in our relationship he wasn’t sure if he would ever get married again. However our families have mixed well and he is the love of my life. My mom kind of slipped to me and told me he might propose to me on our trip. I think she was concerned b/c I had come from a bad marriage and wanted to make sure I was sure. He had told her that he might propose to me on our trip.
Ever since I found this out, it is all i can think of. He use to be the “bachelor” type guy and I diff can tell he is ready to settle down by his actions lately; yet I question if he really is going to propose all the time.
Do you think he is really going to propose?! For one he bought me this amazing trip, he has been trying to save money and has been a lot more concerned with money. He talks about the future all the time, loves my kids like his own. He talks about the car we will get in a few years, getting a dog, trips we will take in the future, etc.
Lately however he has been acting very strange, kind of moody. He has been all over the place. I don’t know if he is just nervous or what. He seems uptight and has needed his space a lot more lately. Given his past I can understand why he would be nervous to think of marriage again but I have proven to him time and time again that I love him and I will always be here for him.
I go back and forth all the time if he is really going to propose or not. I want to enjoy this trip with the love of my life but I’d really love for him to propose…what do you guys think? What kind of signs did you guys see from your guy and did he act nervous/weird a few months before hand?
Please don't judge, I know our situations is unique.
