Back in December I met a really great guy off of a dating site. We hit it off right away and had our first date on December 18th. After that date he asked if I would see him again and I happily agreed. By New Years things were made official. Sometime mid-January I was at his place and things were getting pretty heated, he asked if I wanted to go into the bedroom and I said I wasn't sure. I explained that I had a relationship that went too quickly and didn't want to mess things up again so we should wait. He told me he was glad to hear me say that. It turns out I'm his first girlfriend and he had never slept with anyone before. He was nervous because friends had told him that if he didn't try anything I'd think there was something wrong with him or that I would think he thought there was something wrong with me. We were both pretty relieved and he has since told me after that moment he actually felt ready and fell in love with me. We slowly started spending weekends together, I would sleep at his place. He bought me a toothbrush and began suggesting I keep things I might need here. He's cleared out two drawers for me and I spend almost every night here now. He's already brought up marriage and said one night that if it were up to him we would be married now but "we should wait the appropriate amount of time" he thought maybe a year. He keeps reminding me that proposing will be his job (we had a discussion once about women who propose) he asked me what age I thought I'd be married by and I told him I always thought by 25 would be nice. He told me that's what he was thinking (I turn 24 in June). He has even brought up kids, though he wants to travel some first. I have never met a guy like him and am absolutely mad about him. Just last night he admitted how amazed he is at how easily he got used to me being around, that he usually gets annoyed with people easily and that having me around seems natural. He is unlike any other guy I have ever known, the fact that he brought up marriage surprised me. There were a few times earlier on where he would actually cry because of how close he felt to me, and sadness that his grandfather, who passed away a year ago, would never meet me. One night I asked him what we were going to do with each other (this after spending an increasing amount of time together)and he said "Get married, have kids, and grow old together" which in turn made me cry! I have never felt closer to anyone, and could never see myself with someone in the long term as I can with him.
I know these are all good things, I guess I'm just looking for opinions, and to see if anyone else has experienced anything similar.
