Only he can say what it means, for sure.
When I was in college, my high school sweetheart asked me to marry him, and I said yes – with the condition that we wait until we were settled in jobs and out of college, etc – I said 4 years arbitrarily.
He thought this was silly, he wanted to get married right then, but something in me said “no, we need to wait.”
During that time, I met the man I am now married to and have been happily married to for the last 15 years. (And really, I’d only had to meet him to know I was with the wrong person. I’m very quick to analyze situations and make decisions. 🙂 )
It was a relatively amicable breakup all things considered – more shock than anything, but I realized that comfort and familiarity are not what makes a marriage.
