I was disappointed in my proposal too. My boyfriend and I have been together 7 years. Back in 2016, my boyfriends grandmother was on her death bed and gave him her ring and told him to propose to me. He quickly said no. Right in my face. It REALLY hurt my feelings. I felt like he said no because he didnt want to marry me. After he seen how hurt i was by his answer he decided to propose. I feel like he only proposed because he didnt want to hurt my feelings so I said no. We already have 2 kids. 1 daughter and 1 son. I feel like he sees me as a person worth having kids with but not marrying. Am I wrong to feel that way?? Fast forward to 2018… In Jan. my boyfriend said he wants to marry me this year. He still hasnt found me a ring or even began looking but swears he wants to marry me. Am i wasting my time?? Do i sound selfish?? I know that the whole topic of marriage in this relationship really makes me feel sad and led on. I thought proposals were supposed to be special, atleast thats what i see almost everyday on social media and hear about from friends who recently got engaged. Ill admit im a bit jealous.
