Boyfriend Bought Car Instead of Proposing

Group Therapy: Proposal vs. Car

This question comes from Group Therapy in our TrèsSugar Community. Feel free to add your advice in the comments!

My bf of 18 months and I are very in love. The problem? Although he has said he wants to marry me, lately he has been making some big purchases. He just bought a new car and has plans to modify it (new stereo headlights, plenty of projects). Anyway, I am feeling hurt because this means he won't be proposing any time soon.

He is very focused and says he doesn't want to get married until all of his "ducks are in a row." I understand his desire to be prepared but life always throws you curveballs and I'm wondering what if "the right time" never comes. We both graduate college this semester. He says he loves being with me and goes out of his way to make time for me, but I still feel that there is only artificial fluff keeping us from being together. He is the love of my life and I can't wait until he is my husband.
