My girlfriend joked about proposing to me today. BY TEXT. Being the guy that was proposed to by his girlfriend sounds bad enough, nevermind if she didn't even ask in person. But yeah, I'm glad she was only joking. We've only been together about a year and a half.

well how long will you wait before proposing? Or before you think the idea is a good one? My bf and I have only been together for about 4 months but I could see us getting that far in the future.

I would wait until I felt comfortable with the idea of never being with anyone else, for an entire lifetime. That's a pretty big deal, and I wouldn't get married if I didn't think I was ready for that - right now I don't. She's awesome, but a year and a half isn't enough time to decide what you're doing with the rest of your life. I've not lived with her, so I would prefer to do that for a while first. When you move in with someone, you'll start to notice flaws they were able to hide when you were only friends or dating. I have been with one girl for 4 years before, and ended up just regretting wasting the best part of my teenage years (15-19) on her.

I see... But once you get past a certain age, I just think people should be dating with more than "fun"on their mind. Its hard to tell with men though.

Yeah, I do agree with that, but I don't consider myself past that kinda age. I've never even been through that kind of phase of just having "fun", so I'd hate to get married too soon and feel like I missed out on that. I think it was actually my girlfriend's dad that once said "You wouldn't test-drive only one car before buying", and a car only lasts around 10 years... He made a good point, and it's probably how the majority of guys think. I do genuinely hope your man isn't a typical guy, so that if you do get married so soon, it'll still work.

I wouldn't feel right about being that guy. It'd be a little embarassing even, to be the one who seems like he had to be asked because he couldn't do it himself. You appear to be bothered by that sort of opinion though, so I doubt anything I say will make a bit of difference.

Edit: Why'd you have to be so understanding? Now I seem like a d**k for misjudging you. D:

I'm mostly bothered by the volume of (apparent) women in this thread that are offended by the concept of a forward-thinking woman in a relationship based on equality. *burns bra, etc*

Your response is well-thought out, however, and I fully respect and understand it. 3nodding Thanks.

It's nice to see a change! So many girls are afraid to take the first step and a different approach is so refreshing! Good luck to you!
