How old are you? If you’re 23 and you’re been dating since 13, I’d say give it some time. If you’re like 26 or older, I’d light a fire under him!

You’re still young, it’ll happen soon. Maybe he’s one of those guys that thinks it’s too cheesy to propose on V-Day?

I’ve been with my Boyfriend or Best Friend for over nine years. My mom used to occasionally ask if I thought we would get married, but after telling her yes without any more detail or timeframe, she quit asking. My dad has never pressured us. I hope they haven’t given up yet, because I haven’t!

@Lyndzo: Why do you think she’s still young? she hasn’t stated her age on this thread.

I looked at an old post, you say you met when you were 19 and you’ve been together nearly ten years, so you are 28/29? I think that’s plenty of time. Have you talked about timelines?

my dad doesnt say much about it, but my mom has no filter whatsoever! im the youngest out of 3, and neither one of us has been married, im in my late 20s and my two older siblings are in their 30s, so im her last hope, as she puts it.

im still waiting for my fi to pay off the ring, so i havent told her about our plans just yet. once i get my ring ill spill the beans, i wouldnt be suprised if she fainted once she gets the news. shes been waiting forever for one of us to jump the broom, lol poor thing.

Oh man. Why does it so often take guys a big argument before they realize, “oh, maybe I am ready to get married?” I finally knocked on FI’s head and told him “Look buster, I need 18 months to plan this Destination Wedding. If you think 2012 is a good year, you have until January to ask. That was in August 2010. He proposed on Oct. 18. Sometimes they just need a knock in the head to remind them that, “DOY” it takes a year to plan a wedding, sometimes more. So if you don’t propose for another year, it’s 2 until we’re actually married, dummy. All said with love. Of course.

My mom really wants my boyfriend and I to get married. The way she sees it, I’m the only chance she has at having a married daughter, lol. My sister has a boyfriend but they are always on/off and cheating on one another, so my mom has lost all hope for her. My mom doesn’t pester us about getting married all the time like she used to. I’m starting to think she may know something I don’t, who knows.

@Tiger29:  Once I clued him in I just started planning. I even ordered our invitation paper before he asked. When wedding stuff started showing up he realized he needed to kick it into gear. I’ve never been the type to consider patience a virtue and I think lots of men need the occasional kick in the pants to get moving.

@Tiger29 Oh my gosh, that sounds so much like my mother’s transition. Up until a year ago it was “why don’t people get married before children nowadays” and just last month she was asking when she would have a grandchild. “Mom, he hasn’t even proposed yet. Seriously?” to which she replied, “So? You’re brother and sister won’t be giving any up, you’re the next in line.”

They pretty much gave up on asking about it. But now my sister is engaged they are starting to pressure me again.
