Promises, promises

I knew for a while that the boyfriend was unlikely to tell me he loves me until he was ready to marry me. And while he hasn't asked me anything about marriage yet, the way he talks, it's definitely something in our future.

The night he first told me he loved me, he also asked me to promise him something. He wanted me to promise that things would not go too far physically until the time was right. That's something I can promise without hesitation. And it's a promise I fully intend to keep.

That one small promise makes so many other promises possible.

In the mean time, it's nice to know that he's talking about "when the time is right," not "maybe sometime in the future."

Mr Burns is talking about our future too... using words like marriage and children and family.
I'm not sure what to think.

Sounds like your guy has a better approach!! Happy for you.
