I am also young.. and I understand that some relationships and people are ready young to get married.. however, I think you need to just enjoy dating a bit more because it really does sound like he is on a different page them you.. do not pressure him if he is only 21 and is dragging his feet. A guy 21 ready to be married is very rare.. just enjoy dating and being young and really try to put your emotions aside about needing to be engaged for a while to give him a chance to figure out what he wants and in his own time. He is SO YOUNG and if you pressure him now, he may resent you later.

@Tarheelgurl:  You could let him know it would be ok to propose with a placeholder ring. He doesn’t seem to have an issue committing.

@nycsa:  I agree that he seems committed.. but ready to make the MARRIAGE COMMITMENT? It sounds like he may be a little confused.. but I like the placeholder ring idea..

@Tarheelgurl:  you did sacrifice a lot – if you are happy with a placeholder, let him know

@Tarheelgurl:  I really want my moissy and since I know it won’t break the bank for him, it makes me wonder sometimes what is the hold up.

I think the hold up is that he’s not even 21 yet.   I’d be extremely surprised if a guy that age was interested in getting engaged.

@Tarheelgurl:  Oh I see… that is alot to sacrifice! I think you should really communicate this too him. Tell him you dont want to pressure him (which it sounds like you dont want to do) but you did sacrifice alot for him and if he wants a future with you then he needs to at least give you a placeholder … communication is key though I think in this case
