New boyfriend and baby ideas?

By May 24, 2011 - 8:26pm

I am about to be 19 years old and my boyfriend just turned 21. We both want a long term steady relationship. We were looking at coupons and he saw a diaper coupon and he looked at the page rubbed his finger down the babies face in the picture and said "I really want a baby" looked at me and smiled.

Does this mean, hey get off your birth control pills n lets have a baby or am i reading too much into this?

*We have been dating for about 3 weeks
Which I know is too soon to have a baby with someone but.. I don't know how I can just ask him about it either..?

Susan is right. Three weeks is way too soon to be discussing babies with your boyfriend. He was probably just having some "new relationship" fun with you and possibly got caught up in a moment. When my boyfriend and I started dating he told me a week later that he wanted to marry me. I almost had a heart attack right then and there! LOL.

I knew at the time that he was just experiences the "first time I fell in love" endorphines and couldn't possibly mean it so I never bought it up again. Now a year and a half later when he talks about marriage it has a much more serious and "future" tone to it. He still wants to marry me (thank God) but now he's actually looking at it the way that you are supposed to look at it instead of just..."i'm so infatuated with you that i want to get married!"

Hi there!

Thanks for starting this Group!

Regarding this topic - I wouldn't bring it up again - not at all! You're just begining to date and you are getting to know each other - topics like this should be at least a year away and then should just be in a cute "let's dream about the future!" stage, especially since you are still a teenager. You know - like when teen lovebirds name their future kids - it's just fun.

If he brings it up again, just tell him he's being silly and if it turns out that he is serious (which I highly doubt) then tell him you're not interested in talking about it or end things.

However, I do think he was just having a bit of silly conversation like all people do as they just start to date each other. Just laugh and tell him that's something that's a long way off - and mean it!

Enjoy the simplicity of a new relationship and don't read into things that you know shouldn't be serious. All in good time!

Enjoy your new boyfriend and keep things light and fun!
