My boyfriend (29) and I (30) have been together for a little over 5 years now, and things have been going great but he still isn’t anywhere near proposing me. I have been ready for quite some time to take the next step and make it legal. But, the man is just not taking my wedding talk seriously, he doesn’t brush it off but doesn’t take any action.
So, many holidays have come and gone but I always end up a little frustrated because I can’t understand why he won’t take the next step. Last week I brought up the subject again but this time he got visibly annoyed and before I even finished what I had to say, je just stops me and said nothing you say, is gonna change anything and I won’t be pushed into marriage and that’s all I’m gonna say about that.
I have put so much into this relationship and he still refuses to even discuss marriage. He said, just because you keep urging me isn’t gonna get you the ring and you’re coming across as very materialistic is a very good reason to not take the plunge especially when I’m not ready for it.
I told him, in the beginning of our relationship that it’s important to me and at the time he was all for it, but I don’t know what has changed. All he says , when I bring it up is you need to ease off and take some time off.
What should I do?
