I can't get the idea out of my mind that an engagement is on the way and on my bf's mind. Is it crazy to jump to conclusions like this so soon?
The thing is I'm not even the type to be thinking or fanasizing about these things. Maybe I'm just not familar with happy/healthy relationships.
So the "signs" I'm reading into;
-he tells me I'm his ideal and 'the one' a lot
-he compliments me in white
--he suddenly cares a lot about making a good impression on my mom (dad's not in my life).
-he's developed the habit of holding my hands while out to eat
-the ring I usually wear has been missing a few weeks now
-he didn't buy an expensive record album he wanted (though I'm sure, there could be a number of reasons for this).
-sometimes he seems concerned that my feeling for him will change (though, he's not really an insecure person).
-he's been engaged before
-he already is a father
-he's turning 30 this year
-i've met his extended family
Though I can also think of many reasons why now would not be the time.
I'm not in a hurry. I just want to know if I'm crazy to be making these kind of assumptions based on this info. If other women might suspect the same thing.

I wouldn't say crazy or anything like that but you do come across as an optimist and you quite clearly want the engagement. But then all of this kind of irks me, is there a problem? Why do you think that the four months matter at all? It doesn't sound like you want the engagement for the unity in the future which you could both share but rather simply because your relationship is meeting "the next level".
Don't get me wrong here, the anticipation for a hugely valued commitment is greatly expected and understandable but the engagement shouldn't be proof of this, all your emotions should. I hope you see where I'm coming from.1
