    Hmmm, so I have a bit of a question. Been with my man for over two years and I want to tell him I want to spend the rest of my life with him (because, well, I do). Thing is, I don't want to scare him or freak him out or anything.

    What I'm asking (especially looking for a male perspective) is whether this kind of thing would freak you out after over two years in a relationship? Or should I wait for him to say it to me?

    Anon in case he happens to come across this!
    Really? awwwww this is the cutest thread. Just tell him.

    If someone said that to me I'd be out of there before she could finish the sentence.
    I somehow doubt you would last two years in a relationship then:confused:

    I think it's a bit strange to just come out and say "i wanna spend the rest of my life with you"... Do you mean you're proposing to him then? If not, surely by now it should be obvious if thats how you feel i.e talking about the future together, joking about being old, planning things out together... I have never said that to my boyfriend, and the only time he basically said that was when he proposed, but we both knew without saying anything that we wanted to be together for the rest of our lives. I dunno, I just think it seems strange to say.

    i think to be honest, living together is a good step to show that you want to be with them forever.

    If you're talking about the future as well together, thats also a good sign - if he's not running away in the other direction, he's obviously on the same lines as you.
    By all means slip it into a conversation when you're talking about the future - but only if you're sure he feels the same.

    I used to joke about it with my bf, turns out he felt the same. He regularly told me in texts and some of them were quite scary. They went like....
    "Allison I love you, if thats wrong then you can shoot me but please let me hold your hand one last time"
    Tbh that made me wanna puke. We've split up now :p: He dumped me though :|
