No future

Today, the love of my life said, "You’d make a great husband! Whoever marries you in the future is gonna be so happy!" We’ve been together for 4 years and was planning to propose on her birthday in two weeks. FML

Agree with the other poster - it was probably a way of her dropping hints and being coy. Rather than say “If we get married, I’d be so happy!” and potentially scaring you away, she worded it differently to say you’d make a great husband. It was probably like a playful, tongue-in-cheek thing.

I know you’re probably super nervous so your gut reaction was to perceive her words negatively, but definitely err on the side of OPTIMISM in this case! Go forward with the proposal on her birthday and let us know how it goes! 😄😄😄😊😊😊

Seems like she was just dropping hints or wanting to see your reaction.
But seriously, 4 years? It should be fairly apparent whether or not you want to marry a person in the first or second year of being with them. Many people propose because "it feels like it's the next thing they should do", not because they are overly in love with that person.

I get that there is joy from a surprise proposal. But that’s a life long decision that should be discussed by both parties before it happens. That’s just an opinion though.

Just playing devil's advocate here, but maybe she thinks you're going to propose and this is her way of letting you know that she's not cool with it. Have you ever discussed marriage & family or no family?
