Promise Rings

Hey y'all! Sooo I've been with my boyfriend for almost ten months now (been together for 10, boyfriend/girlfriend for 6) and we're serious but still way too young to discuss marriage. I'd really like to take the next step in our relationship, so I bought him a promise ring. I want to spend my days with him and show him my commitment to him and us and my love for him, but I'm worried that all of the forever talk will freak him out. I really want to give it to him, but I'm so nervous! Does anyone have any advice??
